How to Remap Hardkey Actions on your Hero

How to Remap Hardkey Actions on your Hero

Are you tired of clicking on the app drawer in order to launch the camera app on your HTC Hero CDMA? ¬†Want to wake your screen using another key? Don’t really use the ‘Search’ key and could find a better use for it?

Well, XDA forum member Decad3nce has written up a pretty informative guide on remapping the hardkey buttons to your hearts’ content.

You’ll need to be familiar with adb commands and the use of an editing tool (Notepad++ as suggested by Decad3nce) in order to edit the ‘heroc-keypad.kl’ file.

There are different attributes assigned to each key and Decad3nce has clearly listed these out for you by key number and action, including if the action should wake your Hero on button push or just complete the action directly.

For those of you who may have an aversion to adb and would prefer to flash any tweaks, Decad3nce has mentioned a possible update.zip coming soon.

To check out the guide, visit the forum thread.
