Use Home To Select Instead Of Power Button In CWM Recovery

Sep 30, 2012

i have successfully ported CWM Recovery to my ZTE Merit/Avail/Roamer using the CyanogenMod gingerbread source (i did not use the unofficial port that was built from the ZTE Blade because the screen is upside down)

everything works just like it is supposed to--absolutely flawless. build went through without a hitch.decided that i instead wanted to use the "home" key to select menu options in the CWM Recovery instead of the "power" button that is default (had to uncomment BOARD_HAS_NO_SELECT_BUTTON in the BoardConfig.mk because there is no camera button on this phone)

so i copied the recovery_ui.c from the working Blade source (which uses the "home" key instead of the "power" key), placed it into my ZTE Roamer (Merit/Avail) source and added BOARD_CUSTOM_RECOVERY_KEYMAPPING := /device/zte/roamer/recovery_ui.c to my BoardConfig.mk

there is no problem reading the location of the file so don't suggest to change it..but when i compile i get these errors and it is not built

Code:
prebuilt/linux-x86/toolchain/arm-eabi-4.4.3/bin/../lib/gcc/arm-eabi/4.4.3/../../../../arm-eabi/bin/ld: out/target/product/roamer/obj/EXECUTABLES/recovery_intermediates/recovery.o: in function get_menu_selection:bootable/recovery/recovery.c:470: error: undefined reference to 'device_handle_key'
[code]....

who is not some novice that knows nothing about building a recovery.img from CyanogenMod source, i can use the home button instead of the power button. is there any easier way to change this than by using a custom recovery_ui.c?

Use home to select instead of power button in CWM Recovery

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 : X10i - When Press Home Button - Get A Prompt To Select To Complete Action Using Home Or Timescape

Sep 16, 2010

I am a new member and a relatively new owner of an X10i. Overall I am happy with the phone but I am hoping some can answer a question. When I press the home button (middle one) I get a prompt to select to 'Complete Action using Home or Timescape' This is quite annoying. I want the default action to be Home (not Timescape) but despite ticking the box in the prompt it still pops up this box.

General :: Fastboot / Recovery / ADB Without Power Button Or Access To OS

Nov 28, 2012

My Galaxy Nexus won't boot with the power button and I don't think my volume down button works either. There is also a pattern lock I don't know so I can't get into the OS. Is there anyway to wipe/fastboot/enter ADB without the power button or without needing USB debugging? Or is there a way to turn on USB debugging without getting into the OS?

General :: Samsung Galaxy S2 Power Button Not Working In Recovery Mode?

Oct 13, 2013

my galaxy s2,it is rooted,and i have another problem : the phone restarts by itself and gets stucked in the boot loop, i never flashed a new rom ,it is running the stock rom,Someday i needed to factory reset the phone so i rebooted into recovery mode (power + home button +vol up) ,. I booted into recovery mode but the power button does NOT react as 'select' button although it works just fine for power on and off. I select a function and press [power] an the first line becomes the selected. pushing it again just flashed the screen. But pressing it long turns the phone off,and even after the factory reset from phone directly(with out going to recovery mode)

General :: How To Break Out Of Recovery Mode (without Home Button)

Feb 2, 2012

When 2.3.5 update on Samsung Galaxy S finally arrived, I've rooted my phone as seen on androidadvices.com. This version is not stable so I wanted to go back to stock ROM but in the mean time my HOME button stopped working.

So, there I was, not able to go to download mode to flash stock ROM. Than I googled that you can go to download mode through adb and I did and flashed backed stock ROM.

AND THEN, IN AN ACT OF ABSOLUTE STUPIDITY, I'VE GONE TO RECOVERY MODE THROUGH ADB.

And now I can't get out. My phone is working, software is ok, only HOME button is not working. ADB dont see phone any more and phone is always rebooted in recovery mode.

General :: Vodafone Smart II Home Button Not Working In TCT Recovery Mode

Apr 7, 2013

I had a problem with my old Vodafone Smart II phone Alcatel V860, and I put another original ROM on it. Everything was fine. I rooted also the phone, not a problem. But when I went into recovery mode I noticed something weird, only my volume keys up and down are functional to make selections in TCT recovery console, but not also the select button (the home button). This worked before! I also noticed much more options in the recovery console than before, but what good? I can't select options from the recovery menu whatever I do, just navigate through them.

Motorola Droid :: Designate Camera Button To Become Power Button?

Apr 21, 2010

I tried searching for this but couldn't find a thread that discussed it. My power button appears as though its been jammed. I dropped my phone on its corner where the power button is but I don't think thats what the problem is. Anyhow, recently my power button responds but I have to really press it hard and it as though the button is jammed cause it doesn't depress as far.

My question is that is there a way to designate the camera button to become the power button? I know on some phones you can make different buttons do different things and I was curious if this was possible on the Droid.

This problem does not happen if I exit an app by pressing the back button. It becomes very annoying at times.

Android :: How To Control Activity Flow - Back Button Versus Home Button

Sep 2, 2010

I have 3 activities in my app: Activity1 -> Activity2 -> Activity3. Inside Activity3, if the user presses Back, I would like to return to Activity2. In Activity3's onPause event, I added a finish() statement. That's probably not even necessary, but I wanted to make sure this Activity gets cleaned up. This works fine.
However, while in Activity3, if the user presses Home or starts a new app (through notification bar or some other means), I want both Activity3 and Activity2 to finish. If the user returns to this app, he should resume with Activity1.

I have figured out how to do one or the other, but I can't figure out how to handle both cases, if it's even possible. Can I trap the "Back" button in Activity3 and send a message back to Activity2 telling it not to finish()? It seems like the Activities follow the same lifecycle flow (Pause, Stop) regardless of what you do to send them to the background. Just to answer the question of why I want this behavior, imagine that Activity1 is a login screen, Activity2 is a selection screen, and Activity3 is a content screen. If I press Back from the content page, I want to be able to make a new selection. If I exit via any other means (Home, notification bar), I want the user to be "logged out".

Android :: Overriding Home Button For Car Home Replacement Application

May 19, 2010

I have been working on a replacement for the stock Car Home app for a bit, and I am completely stumped on how to override the Home button so that my app will be brought back to the foreground whenever the phone is docked. This is the way that Car Home works, so there must be a way. It seems that BroadcastReceivers won't work, because the intent that is broadcast whenever the Home button is pressed will still cause the default homescreen app to launch; I cannot prevent it. I can override the Home button from within my app, but that does me no good since this needs to work when the user is outside my app. Car Home also does not do anything weird like set itself as the default homescreen app while it's running (I checked the logcat to make sure).
I've been really beating my head against the wall on this. Does anyone have any ideas, or can you at least point me in the right direction?

Motorola Droid X :: 2nd Click Of Home Button As Sleep Button?

Nov 2, 2010

I like being able to wake the phone to view the lock screen using the home button at the bottom of the phone, but is there any way to make it so that a second click of that button, or a click of one of the others down there, will make it sleep again? Having to press the power button up top is just an inconvenience.
