My power button has broken so I'm trying to use the volume up key as the power button instead. My phone is a rooted Sony Xperia Go ST27i running Android 4.1.2.
I've tried ButtonRemapper, but this does not work on my phone so I'm trying to do it manually.
The output of
$ cat /proc/bus/input/devices contains:
Bus=0019 Vendor=0000 Product=0000 Version=0000
So I thought I'd edit the
/system/usr/keylayout/ux500-ske-keypad.kl file, however this file does not contain what I expected.
It has no config for a power button and contains only the two lines:
key115 VOLUME_UP WAKE
key114 VOLUME_DOWN WAKE
So nowhere I can disable the power button (assume this is key 116 on this model?). Also neither of the volume keys work to wake my phone, so is this config file even being read?
