Remap Your Windows Phone 7 Hard Keys

Since the dawn of smartphones, hard keys are becoming obsolete. Manufactures have gone from complete utilization of hard keys, to only having a few keys, such as the volume control, camera and power button. Are your hard keys gathering dust because your prone to using touch screen widgets or apps for these functions?  What if you had a way to associate the hard keys to your advantage? With XDA member YukiXDA‘s WP7 hard key mapping hack, you can learn to do just that.

To achieve that you have to edit the dll keybdpdd_htc.dll you can find in your ROM (in IMGFS/OEM) section (there are equivalents for aother devices as HTC).

The OP suggests that the hack should work for all HTC devices running Windows Phone 7, and can possibly be adapted for other manufacturers like Samsung and LG. If you want to learn more, visit the original post for detailed instructions.

Arrow Launcher: Good Effort Without Direction

Microsoft’s Android expansion has been well received on the productivity front, but not so much in terms of original applications. While their Office suite managed to bring some of the document-editing excellence to mobile, attempts at entering one’s interface through apps like Picturesque proved to be pointless failures. But even then, some apps like Hyperlapse redeem the computing giant through great quality. Microsoft seems to be approaching Android with brute, misdirected development and plenty of unorganized output, and if they want...
