AT&T’s HTC One X Software Update Provides Option To Re-map Menu Key To Recent Apps Button
By on August 3rd, 2012

The HTC One X is a genuine effort from HTC to make a come back in world of Android that is being dominated by Samsung’s Galaxy series. The top-notch build quality, the camera, above average battery life and a screen-to-die for makes the One X a pretty good all-rounder.

Also, unlike Samsung, HTC kept its sanity and used the Ice Cream Sandwich button layout (Back, Home and Recent app). However, since the One X does not come with on-screen navigation buttons, HTC decided to fix the missing menu button in some apps with 48 pixels of an ugly on-screen menu button, when required.

Thankfully, in the latest OTA update being rolled out to the One X from AT&T and HTC, the on-screen menu button has been removed. Instead, users are given an option to re-map the Recent app button to either menu button, with long-press for recent apps, vice versa or just a simple ‘Always open recent apps’.

The 270MB OTA update also brings with it the latest version of Ice Cream Sandwich – Android 4.0.4. Knowing AT&T and HTC, the OTA update might very well close all loopholes that were used to gain root access, so if you want to make sure that you have root access, stay away from this OTA update until the developers find another way to gain root access.
