Using a registry editor goto:
HKCU\Control Panel\Keybd

Under that key there are strings that read:
APP1_Path, APP2_Path etc...

Change the shortcut these point to to change the aplication that is launched when pressed.

Default Configurations:
APP1: Messaging Button
APP2: Media Button
APP3: Internet Button
APP4: Calendar Button
APP5: Contacts Button
APP6: ????? (There is a key here with nothing defined...dont know which button it refers to)

Now for more poking around. Still love the Q9h!

Nice, any ideas on the rocker / esc buttons? I'll try some things out over the weekend.

No Dice! I even tried to create a path for the contacts button LongPress but had no luck. I couldn't figure out what APP6 is either.

Anybody know where to find device specific registry guides? You would think they would exist for ap developers.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays

I wasn't able to figure out how to map the rocker buttons or how to use APP 6.

Hi SpartanRob! Enjoying your new phone?! :)

Last I checked with the Q, I could only get the app buttons to change per first post. No luck with the rocker buttons, but maybe you can peek around the registry and findo something new out!

Good Luck with the phone.
