Hello guys.

I am using the music player on g300 very often because i really like listening to music on headphones but i have a little problem.
Is there a way to make the volume keys switch tracks? It annoys me that, everytime i want to switch it, I have to pull phone from pocket, unlock it, go to music app, change song.
And i saw that the volume keys stock "config" is like this:

Vol + (press once) - volume goes up 1 step
Vol - (press once) - volume goes down 1 step
Vol + (keep pressed) - volume goes up many steps until max
Vol - (keep pressed) - volume goes down many steps until mute.



I would like it like this:

Vol + (press once) - volume goes up 1 step
Vol - (press once) - volume goes down 1 step
Vol + (keep pressed) - next track
Vol - (keep pressed) - prev track.



Is there a way to do this? Or an app?

My phone is rooted and it's on stock B892.

Thanks!

I had in the past winamp/poweramp and both have lockscreen widgets but it isn't what i want. CM Roms can do what I said:

Vol + (press once) - volume goes up 1 step
Vol - (press once) - volume goes down 1 step
Vol + (keep pressed) - next track
Vol - (keep pressed) - prev track.

?
Thanks for reply.

Anyone knows some other methods?
