Disabling/customizing the double tap home
So the fact that the choices for the double tap home button are severely limited really annoys me, doubly so since you can't even disable it. I have my X rooted, so given that I was wondering if anyone knows of a way to either disable or get further customization options for it. Anyone?

LauncherPro has opitions for Do nothing, Open/close screen previews, open/close app drawer, open/close notifications, and show/hide status bar
Edit: I'm an *****. Those are the single-press options.

Changing double tap settings
I was able to change this setting today. It requires root, but you said you have it so you should be good. You need to modify the sqlite database in /data/data/com.motorola.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db. See http://http://androidboss.com/a-litt...s-for-android/ for help with doing that. Go into the 'settings' table and look for 'double_tap'. Change that to whatever you want to run when you double tap. Note the form though, <program>/<activity>. Once you do that reboot and you should be good to go. Be careful though, make a backup of the file.

Here are the first few entries of my settings database, might help you find the right one:
test_attribute, eri_alert_sounds, eri_text_banner_software_update_alert.

Let me know what you find. I would like mine to bring up the recent apps like long pressing does.
Between my X and iPad I'm always long pressing and double tapping the wrong device.
Hope its possible. But I can live without :/
