How can I remap the camera button to work as a power button?
I have a rooted Alcatel One Touch S'Pop.
I edited system/usr/keylayout/Generic.kl by copy-pasting POWER WAKE string from the power button to the camera button, turned off the phone and reinserted the battery. Nothing happened. The camera button still activates camera. Now I restored the old file.
In system/usr/keylayout folder, I have these files:

  • ACCDET.kl
  • AVRCP.kl
  • Generic.kl
  • hid-keyboard.kl
  • mhl-keyboard.kl
  • mtk-kpd.kl
  • qwerty.kl
  • Vendor_05ac_Product_0239.kl
  • Vendor_22b8_Product_093d.kl
  • Vendor_045e_Product_028e.kl
  • Vendor_046d_Product_c216.kl
  • Vendor_046d_Product_c294.kl
  • Vendor_046d_Product_c299.kl
  • Vendor_046d_Product_c532.kl
  • Vendor_054c_Product_0268.kl

Which one should I edit? Thank you for your help and time.


Try with the file mtk-kpd.kl and change these values. First, make a backup of that file.

key 116 GRAVE
key 212 POWER      WAKE
Key 211 POWER      WAKE
  • What if the keys are wrong? How will I fix that?
