@firelord - thanks sounds like you spent a lot of effort here. Unfortunately I don't actually have a rooted phone so can't try out the solution but it does sound very interesting reading about it

@firelord - I don't think you'll find an app that'll do that unless the developer has deliberately overridden the back button to do so. But the behavior I'm after I'd to not go to the home screen even if that's the only screen left to go to. I actually what's most frustrating is when you open an app from a notification and you hit the back button taking you back to the home screen and the icon go back to the app isn't even there

@firelord - I don't think an app will ever dump you to the home screen instead of a previous screen. My request is for an app that if there is no previous app, it won't kick me out to the home screen

@lucky - it's very unintuitive to me. The user doesn't always know when they're on the main screen, especially if they've come in from another app, and then hit back to go up the stack of the new app. I don't want to have to memorise the entry point of every app. Given there is already a home button - I would much rather just use that instead of the back button.
