    I think the keys you are wanting to remap are Minix specific only keys have a look in the link may tell you more also maybe somebody knows different

    I'll check thst link but it will suck if i can't remap does keys. I knew that the power could be an issue but the "all apps" and "resent apps" didn't cross my mind and i didnt see any reviews stating that. I really like the build quality but that bugs the hell out of me. I might end up returning if that's the case. :(

    If by "sleep/wake" you mean the Power key then it probably won't work as it is IR.
    The "all apps" will only work with MINIX Metro Launcher and "recent apps" I'm not sure.

    Can the Minix Metro Launcher be installed on other Android boxes and if so where can I download the apk? Spec wise my box should be able to handle it.

    Just to be sure. It's the "MINIX_METRO V4.0 Temp Switch.apk" correct?

    For the power button to work you need to copy over the remote.conf file, see here:

    For the A2 Lite .kl file go here thanks to @Villa

    I have tried to all ends to get the All Apps & Recent Apps button to work but have to admit failure, I use the Minix Metro and it has no effect, I think this is programmed into the framework-res.apk by Minix, if you find a solution then please let us know.

    Awesome and thank you very much. I'll try that. Too bad Mimix devs haven't worked this out. They have a great looking controller and works great except for does keys. They should be able to create a patch or a small app that can be installed on at least rooted devices that allows the mapping of these keys to any box. If I do find out how to get this going i'll let you know. I have 26 more days to decide if I will keep or return the controller. I don't like having dead keys and getting them to work will help me decide.

    Funny thing is, I have MINIX devices and MINIX remotes and I never use the "All apps" or the "Recent apps" keys! :p:D

    I use the "recent apps" to clear the running apps every time i exit an app. I also clear it before placing my box into sleep mode. I use it all the time. TBH i can care less about the "All Apps" but the recent is must have for me. I did found a work around with the "SquareHome2" Launcher by making the Menu Key work as the "Resent Apps" when i hold it for 1 second but I would like to have it working with the correct button.

    Also, i noticed that the power button works on my controller but it just turn up the volume when i press it. I'll try the "config" file instructions to fix that and hopefully i can get that working correctly.

    AFAIK, clearing the recent app list does nothing but just that, "Clears the list" and as I never use the list it sort of doesn't exist. ;)

    Just giving an update.

    I follow the instructions provided by Marty and the Power Button now works to Sleep and Wake the box. As far as the "Recent" and "All Apps" buttons, i'm still not able to get does to work.
