General :: Soft Keys Died On GT-i9000

Jan 30, 2012

I have a Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant GT-i9000 (Bell Mobility, Canada Edition).I am running Darkyrom V10.3 (NO! my problem has nothing to do with Darkyrom)The device is Rooted via Superoneclick

Here is the problem:

My back button has always seemed a bit glitchy and one of my friend told me to hit *#*#2663*#*# and hit "Touch key FW update".

I did that and my back button was acting even worse so I went back in and hit "TSP FW update".

Now my buttons do not work at all! I read somewhere that old me to do a factory reset but I really REALLY don't want to as I cant even backup my stuff in Titanium Backup Root because I have no menu key.

Both times the update came back with a pass and there was no error.

General :: Looking To Remap Home Key And Soft Keys?

Apr 2, 2014

Looking to remap my home key, and my menu and back soft keys on my s3. I've looked at editing scripts, and even Xposed modules for this and here is what I found.

I can remap my keys manually, but I cannot map them to open an application.

With Gravity Box Module, I can map the applications to launch on a double press or a long press.

Here is what I want to do with a single tap.

[MENU SOFT KEY] [HOME KEY] [BACK SOFT KEY]
Open Phone Open search Open Camera

Is there an xposed module for this?

General :: Split Status Bar And Soft Keys?

Dec 13, 2012

how to split the status bar and the soft keys on a crappy rebranded tablet? It runs 4.1 but the notifications, volume buttons and soft keys overlap each other making it look an eye sore. I have taken a look in the framework-res.apk and systemui.apk but can not find anything. What I want to do is split the two a bit like the nexus 7, so that the status bar is at the top and the soft buttons are at the bottom.

General :: How To Remove Added Soft Keys Showing On Lock Screen

Jun 20, 2012

I have added a couple of soft keys through navigation_bar.xml in SystemUI.apk. The soft keys show great, but are also showing on the lockscreen, when the others "disappear".

The added ones are Menu and Search, the order is Home, Menu, Recent Apps, Back, Search. This is to be the same as my desire hard keys. I know, no point in it, but have just got used to the soft keys so much!

Anyway, here is my coding, I have removed the android:visibilty="invisble" attribute to no ill effects...I have also added the relevant strings and ids in their respective places..

Code:
<FrameLayout android:id="@id/rot0" android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="fill_parent">
<LinearLayout android:orientation="horizontal" android:id="@id/nav_buttons" android:clipChildren="false" [code]...

Could it be to do with the ID's? (I know that when I made the center clock, I added the "@id/clock" and it made the clock "disappear" on the lockscreen, where taking it out the clock stayed in the status bar!)...

HTC Incredible :: Soft Keys Light Turns Off

Jun 25, 2010

I'm guessing this is because the light detector determines I have plenty of light and thus decides that I don't need them to glow. But really, it's just annoying, as in direct light, i can't see the keys whatsover thanks to glare. Thus, my questions: 1. is it normal for the soft key lights to turn off? and 2. is there any way to override this and have them on at all times?

Android :: Intended Usage Of The Next And Done Keys On Soft Keyboard

Sep 23, 2009

The "Next" key seems to move to the next item that could interact with the keyboard.

The "Done" key is less clear to me. It sends in a KeyEvent.KEYCODE_ENTER event. Is it possible to distinguish this event from the down-and- left-arrow key that also sends in a KeyEvent.KEYCODE_ENTER? It appears that you get either but not both "Done" or down-and-left-arrow buttons on the soft keyboard.

Am I missing some documentation about this?

Is it "good UI" to have the "Done" key execute the action that would normally be done on an "OK" button? E.g. for a username and password dialog that has two text fields and an OK button the user touches the username field, gets the soft keyboard, types, presses "Next", types, presses "Done" and the dialog submits the username and password and goes away.

Or is it "good UI" to force the user to explicitly touch the OK button? Possibly having to also manually dismiss the soft keyboard if it covers up the OK button.

HTC Droid Eris :: Soft Keys - Supposed To Light Up?

Jun 19, 2010

I'm on my 3rd Eris - replaced each one for the silent bug. This one hasn't gone silent yet, but the soft keys (home, menu, back, and search) don't light up. Major PITA when using the phone at night. When I took it back to Verizon,they said the buttons aren't supposed to light up. Now I'm second guessing myself. So, can someone with an Eris check it out on your phone and see if the buttons light up? Is there a setting for this that I'm missing? BTW - This last replacement shipped with 2.1 installed and hboot 1.49.

Samsung Captivate :: Soft Keys/Button Issues

Sep 11, 2010

First off, I love the Captivate. I just recently swapped it out with the HTC Aria, and haven't looked back since. However, I do miss certain aspects of HTC's Sense UI...

Anyways, my main concern with this phone is the 4 Soft Keys below the Samsung logo. I will address my issues/concerns/questions in the following list:

--How bright are your soft keys when backlit? (In comparison to other Captivates or other Android devices)

--Mine seem to have a slight yellow/brownish tint to them. Anybody have pure white, or anything different?

--The Home button: is your roof slightly different sizes when comparing the left to right. (Yes, I am aware this is nit-picky. not worried or bothered, just curious)

--Finally, my responsiveness on any of the 4 buttons is spotty at times. Especially once pressed when they are no longer lit. Have many others experienced this, and if so, which button(s) in particular give you trouble?

Samsung Captivate :: Prefer Soft Out Physical Keys / Buttons?

Nov 4, 2010

I hate soft keys. They're hard to see. It's hard to know whether I pressed them. I often press them accidentally. They add absolutely nothing to the phone. In short, soft keys suck.

Android :: Soft Home - Menu - Back Keys In Status Bar

Mar 9, 2010

I have a device with no hard buttons, on which I need to get Android running. The basic port is done, but I need to provide access to Home, Menu, and Back. The Archos tablets put soft buttons in the status bar, and I'm told that the android-x86 folks have implemented this as well (though I haven't found it in their source yet).

Android :: Need App To Make Soft Keys Activated Only On Long Press

Oct 30, 2010

I was wondering. Is there an app for changing the soft keys on my Samsung Vibrant to only activate when pressed long or double clicked? I am just sick and tired of accidentally pressing them because they are so damn sensitive, and unlike the Fascinate or Epic 4g, so close to the touch screen that pressing spacebar on the onscreen keyboard half the time results in hitting the soft keys by accident. I don't understand why we can't customize what the soft keys do and how long or many times activates them, because if you got even normal sized finger tips, it's so annoying to be typing into the search bar and then press back right below and have to retype everything again.

General :: GT-I9000 Freezes When Trying To Call

Jul 21, 2012

i had some old official Froyo firmware with Voodoo lagfix and Voodoo Sound on it. One day I've noticed that it now takes like 5-10 seconds after you press a power button for screen to turn on. It started to annoy me and I decided to update to latest official firmware. After I did, the problem I mentioned disappeared.

Anytime when i'm trying to make or accept a call phone freezes. Black screen and battery icon is all that is visible. However, call itself proceed and you can talk, but the only way to finish it is to remove battery (3G calls still works fine, btw) I've tried all possible firmwares from oldest ones to ICS... tried all cleanup options from recover menu, stll nothing's changed.

General :: Using SGSI I9000 To Stream Music From NAS To Hi-Fi

Mar 14, 2013

I've been looking a various solutions to stream music to a Hi-Fi such as Squeeze Box and Sonos, and am wondering if I could use my trusty old SGSI i9000 to stream from a NAS or other DLNA enabled device? I believe to Wolfson DAC is quite good for a phone, so I could connect the phone to the amp with a phono lead, but I also wonder if I could attached an external DAC via a USB adapter to improve the sound output. I know this can be done on the S3 and some tablets, but not sure of the situation with other phones. I am ok with routing and custom ROMs. I do not want to play music stored on the phone, as my library is already 200gb and rising, but use it as a conduit to get the music from storage to the Hi-Fi
