    [HOW-TO] Remap keys on your keyboard

    So, I've been watching the 2nd inauguration while typing out a report for work. Accidentally pressed the lock button while overreacing for the backspace. Then it occurred to me. I sure wish the lock button would forward delete instead of locking the tablet. So, here's how you do it. You need root for this.

    (1) Get root explorer on google play.

    (2) Grant root access to the app.

    (3) Navigate to /system/usr/keylayout

    (4) Press the top button to mount the folder as r/w.

    (5) Open the file asusdec.kl file with text editor.

    (6) Go down to key 142 and change from "SLEEP" to "FORWARD_DEL".

    (7) Save. A backup copy will automatically be saved. Don't worry.

    (8) Back out and remount as r/o.

    (9) Restart your tablet. You can now use the lock button as forward delete.

    Hint: You can also forward delete by shift + backspace.

    [HOW-TO] Remap keys on your keyboard

    I saw this on XDA in the TF101 a while back. I swapped search and ALT keys to do more natural ALT-TAB switching.
