    Can Softkey of MC36 be disabled?

    KaChun Wong

      My company is using Zebra MC36 for warehouse stock-taking.

      A quite disturbing problem is that the 3 softkeys can easily be pressed uncarefully by users!


      For Back key, we can capture it in activity keypress event if key == KeyCodes.KEYCODE_BACK;

      For Home key, we can add intent-filter in manifest.xml like:


      <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />

      <category android:name="android.intent.category.HOME" />

      <category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />


      For Recent key, we cannot find any solution except "root" the mobile.

      I recently find a file called "Generic.kl" under /system/usr/keylayout/ but it is not writable.

      I would like to ask whether it is proper for rooting the mobile and comment key 139 RECENT_APP by myself?
