    Default is it possible to disable the camera button?

    I seem to accidentally launch the camera through out the day.

    Would love to be able to turn that button off.

    This is strange to hear that you are having this happen because the camera button has to be held for a few seconds before the camera is triggered and also when device is locked the camera button should be inactive. Do you have the camera link on your desktop main page because i think its a better chance that the device unlocks and the camera may be triggering.

    They real problem is where I place it in my car while driving. The slot in my center console is just tight enough that it engages the camera.

    Can't just use the slide to unlock feature? It'll disable that while in locked mode

    Yes I try to remember, but I don't always.

    It is ok for folks just to say they don't know or that it can't be done.

    Look for the "NoCam" application in the Android Marketplace. I've used the app for a little bit and it seems to work, although it doesn't seem to disable the camera button when you're in the default camera app for Motorola Droid.

    isn't there also a program called "spare parts" or something? you can use that to disable it i think.

    You could also try one of many cases that are very thin, but leave the camera button recessed so that only a finger can press it.

    You can try Tasker. Tasker will allow you to reassign the camera button or create a rule where you need to do something else to enable the camera button. Great program that lets you automate almost anything.

    Here's what worked for me (Motorola Razr i / Android 4.1.2):

    1. Root is required
    2. Install
    3. Open the Root Browser and go to the folder /system/usr/keylayout/
    4. Open, one by one, all ".kl" files with the Root Browser editor and place a hash symbol (#) at the start of the lines where the word "CAMERA" appears. Example: the text "key 212 CAMERA" becomes "#key 212 CAMERA".
    5. Restart your device

    I hope it works for you.
