After my Samsung Tab 2 7.0 got upgraded to 4.1.1 the main buttons changed place. Back used to be to the far left, now it's the second to the right, for example. This is amazingly annoying.

When it was new I did find some way to change these things, so I could get rid of the annoying Screenshot button that was installed by default. But after the upgrade, the possibility to configure this seems to have disappeared.

Any ideas?

That is part of the ROM, the only thing that can be done is to download a custom ROM such as CyanogenMod.. – t0mm13b Dec 12 '12 at 20:36
@t0mm13b Weird, since all screenshots of JellyBean I find has the back button to the left. – Lennart Regebro Dec 12 '12 at 21:34
Might be Samsung-specific "refinement" then? – Izzy Dec 12 '12 at 22:23
Could very well be. Annoying that they apparently removed their own software to modify this in the update. – Lennart Regebro Dec 13 '12 at 5:47

With the stock ROM, you won't be able to do anything. Consider switching to a custom ROM like cyanogenmod. OR, if you like the stock samsung experience, you can find several stock based ROMs on XDA which gives you this feature
