Hi all,

For those who want to have the same keylayout as phones (Left button is menu instead of app switching), you can change the file /system/usr/keylayout/atmel-maxtouch.kl.

Replace the command APP_SWITCH and write MENU instead, save file, set rights as rw-r-r, then reboot.

You have to do it again if you update the device.
You need to have a root explorer and a text editor.
if the text editor can't save the file you can copy on sdcard or on a computer then replace the original file

Becarefull, if you don't follow all the steps yours buttons should not work. If it happens, and if you can't restore this function, update your mipad, all will be restore.

Sorry for my bad english!

This tip can be use to assignate any command to virtual buttons, in example for games you can assignate accelerate, brake or anyfing you want if you know what is the name of the command.

after the latest update of developer miui and chrome the three dot menu is back in chrome, so no more need to hack the hw keys, the mapping wasn't workin' properly after the last update, so i replaced the original file
