It's called constructive criticism or just a suggestion. Andy can tell me to eff off and i will be happy with that. I don't expect anything off him.
+1 on that.
There's nothing wrong about nicely asking to implement something into the MOD.

Hi.. That's not really a bug, that's how it's designed to work. If you need to adjust the volume just press the home key to wake the screen (there's no need to unlock the phone) then adjust the volume. I think using the same key for different function has the potential to be very annoying. If you where running it would be easy to skip tracks when all you wanted was to turn the sound up!!!

maybe or maybe not.... lol...

I think that if you have to press it for 2 secs to skip tracks, I don't see how can you get confused to make a short press to change volume... ok, it's just a thought... I'm thinking in having the phone in my pocket... If I have to press one button and then another one to change volume... that's annoying for me. Again, it's just my opinion.

congratulations!!!
good work...
Can you create for me a code where I press the camera button and the light of lockscreen turns on or make the screen light up?

OK You win!!! :D
I had a look at the code and it wasn't a massive change so I've now created two versions of the Mod. I've updated the OP to include the new version. I probably won't be maintaining both versions going forward though.
Enjoy....

I'm not sure I understand!! Are the Music Controls being removed from the Lockscreen?? I must have missed that Memo!!!
I hope that's not the case.

Glad you like the mod, I'll do my best to update as soon as the lastest realease is available. It might take a while this week as I'm expecting big changes to the android.policy.jar file...

Wow just took a look at the new android.policy.jar and it has changed a lot, it is far beyond my abilities to port over the Volume Plus mod :(

Porting volume + 4way

I've trying to join both mods in one... but i couldn't yet, so i wanted to ask if, maybe, you could give me a clue. 4 way is done, working. Volume detects long press (at least i think so, because it doesn't turn volume up or down when i do long press, it does when i do a short press), but doesn't change tracks...

Yes, the thing is i'm trying to do it in 1.6.17. And android policy has changed a lot. As a i said, i managed to recreate 4way and volume keys seem to respond to long press, but they don't skip tracks...

Hi. I don't think the code would be too difficult. The problem is my phone does not have a physical Camera Key so I wouldn't be able to do any testing. I think you'd have more luck posting in the Motorola forum. I'm sure someone there would be able to help.

The android.policy.jar may be different for your phone? Do you get an error or does it just not work?

It just doesn't work. I 've already the 4 way reboot on my phone, I've only tried the volume mod.

Have you mounted "system" manually in recovery before flashing it?
DHD and Nexus S have a different way for mounting "system" through updater-script (flashable zip) than most devices, and needs to be mounted manually when flashing a generic ZIP. So this could be the problem.
