Sorry if this has been covered elsewhere - I did search but couldn't find anything.

I am looking for a way of customising the functions of the 4 buttons on the MTeoR, ie:
  • The two in the centre below the screen (default functions: Outlook Email and Internet Explorer)
  • The two on the right side (default functions: Voice Recognise/Notes and Camera)
I am quite happy to edit the registry, but I just can't find the keys that determine these functions! Anybody know?

Thanks,
Ian

XML files in \windows folder determine the linking of hardware buttons.
Good luck

I've gone through all the files in the \Windows directory (meaning I opened each *.xml as well) and I don't see anyway to change the IE/Mail button to something else. I also went through the registry last night and while I came close to finding a way it wasn't it. Has anyone one discovered the hack to change these two buttons?

The "trigger shortcuts" ID for the IE-Button is "Short_POC.ink" and "Long_POC.lnk" and should be put in the \Windows dir
(Long* for Looong key press, and Short* for Short key press)
They are not there by default, but you may add them yourself.

(There is also "SHORT_CAMERA.lnk" for the camera button...and "long" i guess)

In the shortcut, you just add the path for the app that you like.

Forinstance... "tmail.exe -service "ActiveSync"" (without the last "")
(Used this example to flag that "inbox" is called "ActiveSync" ...at least in AKU 3.3.1)

Thats SOME of them...been Googling myself for a week now in this matter regarding the "Message button"
Please anyone....HELP....I REALLY NEED TO MODIFY THIS BUTTON !

Long_VT



Cheers kongocui ....found that one aswell after a while, but how about "Short_VT" or another shortcut name to put behind the button.

After dismantling the AKU 3 ROM and putting KEYBDDR.DLL under the microscope there is no traces of any Short_VT.
There seems to be hidden ROM-Static "Tmail.lnk" in the Windows folder though, which is that I assume the button is using rather than "Short_VT" .

Can somebody tell me how to modify this static .lnk using a .cab file (to use OTA)

That would save me quite a bit of hassle....

Looking forward to anybodys reply,
