    I know how to remap the camera and volume rocker keys to do something else, but anyone know how to remap the soft keys? I want to use the search softkey to power up the phone but can't figure out how to do that. is that even possible?

    Power up, no probably not. When the screen is off, those keys are off. So touching those when the phone is sleeping or powered off is going to result in nothing happening. Button Shortcut - Android app on AppBrain <-- allows you to link the search key to stuff.

    The other 3 keys while technically they may be able to change, it is probably not recommended since they all have functions that are rather important.

    How do you remap the volume rocker keys? I prefer to control volume only via the screen controls.
