[MOD] TrackballWake and TrackballSkip for Nexus One
The Nexus One’s trackball is becoming the most valuable and customizable feature of the device, and our members are getting the fullest out of it. This new modification was created by metalhead8816 in our Nexus One forum, and it is not the first trackball tweak to spring out of there.
This one does more than the others. This one is made for those people that listen to music on there devices. It allows them to either use one of the mods to use the trackball to wake up the device or to change your music.
I think this is just about the coolest mod of them all, and the feature list shows you why.
1st Mod: (TrackballWake)
– Allows the user to wake the screen using the trackball (No extra apps its built-in to OS)
– Option is under the System Settings -> Sound & Display -> Trackball Settings -> Trackball wakes screen
– Option is off by default
2nd Mod: (TrackballSkip)
– Allows the user to skip to the next song if music is playing and the screen is off.
– This is done by double-tapping the trackball while the screen is off.
– A double-tap is two consecutive presses within about half a second.
– Option is under Music App -> Settings -> Use trackball to skip
– Option is off by default
Two different versions now:
1) trackball-SuccessW-WSv01.zip – This includes the Successive Notifications v0.4
2) trackball-NoSuccessW-WSv01.zip – This does not include Successive Notification v0.4
You can mod your device with the file from the application thread
