Assign Another Unlock Button on HTC Desire
If you are one of the many XDA forum members frustrated with only being able to display your Desire lockscreen using the power on/off button, then good news await.
XDA forum member RedDragCZ has posted a little tweak, which allows you to force your device to assign another button such as the MENU button to show the lockscreen and what’s more, double tapping it unlocks the device!
You will need to use the Android Debug Bridge in recovery mode in order to have full rw access to the system partition to pull a copy of the /system/usr/keylayout/bravo-keypad.kl file, then edit according to RedDragCZ’s code and push it back to the same location.
Alternatively, XDA forum member kingchris has also provided his own modifications, in the form of an update.zip file, for those of you who are not so familiar with adb commands.
The only requirement is that the device must be rooted for this tweak to work.

When the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were launched, they became the prime focus for all discussions as Samsung took a break on their traditional design philosophy and opted for something that their flagship lineup hadn't seen before. But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...
The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....
