Description

All AT&T Captivate (US-AT&T version ofSamsung Galaxy S) phones have a hardware issue where the SearchButton gets automatically pressed if your phone is exposed tomoisture. This can get really annoying as the phone opens up thesearch screen, hides the keyboard and moves focus away from thecurrent application ensuring that you can't get anything done.

This application disables the search button by modifying thehandset's keyboard layout files. You can even restore (unfix) thelayout files if you need to.

This app is open source software. You can access the source codeat https://github.com/born2c0de/captivate-search-button-fix

This app is designed to work for other phones as well butprovides no guarantees.

NOTE:
1) Since I've only encountered phones where the search key hadproblems, I have disabled the other buttons (HOME, MENU and BACK)from being fixed. If you have issues with other buttons, send me anemail and I'll enable the button for the application.
2) YOU NEED TO HAVE ROOT PERMISSIONS AND BUSYBOX TO USE THISAPP.
3) THE AUTHOR IS NOT LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGE DONE TO YOUR DEVICE. USEAT YOUR OWN RISK.
