BixBye, lets you remap the Bixby button even after the Samsung patch and it works blazing fast.
As it goes without saying, the App is highly experimental and is in Alpha Stage, things may not work as you expect to. However, your feedback will definitely help me improve the App.
For this initial release there is some limited amount of options available, more will be added if the App works well for you guys. Also, BixBye is not yet optimized for use while your device is locked. You can expect improvements over future updates.
NOTE 1: You must open and configure/setup Bixby at least once before BixBye can work.
NOTE 2: If you face any issues/warnings with Secure Startup when you enable BixBye's Accessibility Service, please note that it's an Android bug (https://issuetracker.google.com/issues/37010136). Just disable Secure Startup temporarily, enable BixBye's Accessibility Service and then finally re-enable Secure Startup for everything to work in harmony.
NOTE 3: If you decide to disable packages related to Bixby, make sure you leave the following packages active for BixBye to work:
NOTE 4: From the reports I have received so far, what I understand is that, Bixby itself is a bit inconsistent in its behaviour when the physical Bixby button is pressed. Sometimes it takes a single press to launch and at other times a double press or long press.
BixBye relies on Bixby to function. Once Bixby is in memory, you will notice that BixBye functioning super fast.
It's very likely that Samsung will issue more updates to improve the snappiness of Bixby itself, as a side effect BixBye will become even more snappy. So, updates from here on will be win-win for us.
If you find any issue/not able to get it work, you can either email me or visit the XDA Developers community support thread - http://bit.ly/2p8UOhx
This app uses Accessibility services.
BixBye needs to run as an Accessibility Service, the permission requested allows the App to detect Bixby and perform gestures to launch the configured operation.
This allows people, especially with disability to quickly launch an App or execute a task.
