By default, the HTC Sense dock looks something like this:
Some users may have noticed that SWAG FLU contains a new dock that sports the PHONE | APPS | PERSONALIZE configuration. This is more practical because you are generally going to want to open your app drawer more than you are going to make phone calls.
Remapping allows you to change the left and the right buttons in this configuration. If you text more, replace the Phone button with Messages. Don't add widgets to your home screen all day? Switch the right button to your browser, Facebook, voice search... whatever!
Now, how do we remap these buttons? We'll go over that after the break.
Get to the SOS Tweaks App
This is where you are going to remap your buttons. To get to SOS Tweaks, you have three options:
1. Open your app drawer and find SOS Tweaks.
2. Under Quick Settings (in your notification pulldown), at the bottom, is an option for SOS Tweaks.
3. Long-press the personalize key (right button on the dock)
Once in the app, you will find options to mess with your status bar clock, the battery, access the Battery Bar and more. But, we are interested in the two options below Dock Button Remapping.
Remap Left Button Activity
Anyone familiar with the method of remapping the right button on SOS pre-SWAG FLU H1N1 will remember this method. When selecting this option in SOS Tweaks, you are actually brought to another application called LauchKey. So, yes, if you are just remapping your left button, you can take a shortcut and just open that app up. Using this app is very similar to the dialog in SOS Tweaks.
Wrapping it up
That's all you need to know. If you want to check out this new feature, head over to the XDA thread (page 197) to pick up the v184.108.40.206.5 preview (make sure you are running v220.127.116.11 SWAG FLU before updating). Or, you can wait for v18.104.22.168 ICE CREAM SWAG to drop in a few weeks.
