    Hello,

    My Droid 2 global was interpreting a continuous touch input in the upper left corner, so i took it to a service in my city and they replaced 3 touch screens, and they managed to stop the continuous input, but now they disabled the whole left area above (including) the menu (settings) softkey. (the one to the left of the home)

    Is there anyway to remap that shortcut key to the search (magnifier glass) button? including any mods, roots or anything else?
    I can live with having to rotate my screen everynow and then when something is in that area, but i kind of need that menu key, isn't that right? :)



    Thank you,
    Sebastian

    You can use Button Remapper to remap or Button Savior to bypass the hard keys. Both require root access.though.

    You could also edit the keymap file directly.

    yes, here is some info on that [Mod] Search button as Camera button (key remapping)
    for the DX2, but basically the same, last page has a list of keys

    edit: I use the buttonremapper app, with D2G worked very well
