Soft key mod for CM9DX2

What this mod will do:

1. Enable on screen soft keys.

2. Disable button backlights.

While looking for a fix for this I stumbled on this app: Button Remapper (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=850464)

Unfortunately this app will not work (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1727680#) on our device. I think that I can manually do remap them to work how the app works. But this would mean that everybody would use the buttons for the same thing. I was thinking of using them as media buttons as in menu=previous song home=play/pause back=next song.. let me know what you think.

If you want your hardkeys mapped a certain way just ask nicely! Maybe I can do it for you.

As always.. **Flash at your own risk**

Most of all.. DZK for giving us CM9! http://media.xda-developers.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

How to flash:

Like any other mod.

1. Boot into recovery.
2. Make NANDROID backup (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1727680#)!
3. Wipe dalvik/cache. (NO NEED TO WIPE DATA/FACTORY RESET http://media.xda-developers.com/images/smilies/wink.gif)
4. Flash zip.
5. Reboot.

Hardkey remap (these will work for all versions even though they are labeled for alpha 4)
Flash this (https://www.dropbox.com/s/rvonu60lv5qqrgv/CM9DX2-alpha4-media-hardkeys.zip) after softkey mod if you want your hardkeys to be media buttons:
Menu= Previous song
Home= Play/pause
Back button= Next song
Please note:These will work while screen is OFF, so if you have issues with hitting the buttons while your phone (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1727680#) is in your pocket I do not suggest flashing. I did it this way because I play music off of my phone a LOT and I do not want to wake it every time I wanted to go to the next song.

This zip (https://www.dropbox.com/s/ihss2huyue4sheo/CM9DX2-alpha4-mediaWcam-hardkeys.zip) will do the same as above, but will also use the search key as a camera button like the one on a droid x for example.

This one (https://www.dropbox.com/s/5mt9h6snewmsvh0/CM9DX2-alpha4-dpad-hardkeys.zip) is made for gamers. It will turn your hard keys into dpad keys.
Menu= Dpad left
Home= Dpad up
Back= Dpad down
Search= Dpad right

And here (https://www.dropbox.com/s/avg0tkxys5cl7cj/CM9DX2-alpha4-stock-hardkeys.zip) is the zip for the stock hardkeys so you can try out both the mod and hardkey zips and flash back to stock easily.

This mod is for the X2. I doubt it would work on the x?

Other then the CPU isnt the Dx2 the same? It uses the same screen, case, buttons & the usb, hdmi are even in the same locaction. I have been trying to find a launcher that has this but so far they seem to only work for ice cream..

I'm sure there are more differences. ROMs for the x2 won't work on the x and vice versa so I don't think those mods would work. If you want on screen buttons look into button savior.

If you really wanna try... make a nandroid then go for it. Be warned if you have to SBF and don't back everything up you will lose it all.

I have tried that but its kinda annoying as it goes above whatever app u have running or say if u open txt. having to turn it off & on all the time is a pain, Hence why I was checking into the soft key mod. Guess I'm stuck unless I go to ice cream again :(
