    Thanks linuxx, for this brilliant idea.
    This user asks about how to change wheels in his car and you suggest him to buy a new car with new wheels instead.
    Great! I bet he wanted this.

    (Settings > Buttons > Menu (button) > Recent apps).
    Then press and hold menu button, recent apps will pop up.

    What a bad metaphor. Suggesting he should buy a new phone is more like buying a new car.

    Lol, I underdstood the question, u didn't
    Miui has support for long press action, cm has press, long press, double tap. He want to change "short" press from open menu to recent, I always did this too on every device that have hardware keys . It's better to have the ability to switch between apps in a fast way rather open a menu when have an emulated button too (yes google has forced menu button appearance )
