Hey, you guys don't know how to change the function on the keyboard on the Android OS, then let's see how.

You can change the keyboard function in these 2 folders

Keylayout for mapping the key code on the keyboard to the function being directed.
From the key code > letters, numbers, and symbols that will be displayed.

Keychars for advanced functions of the keys that have been directed.
This can be said to be a keymapping combination, for example shift + a the result is A with a large size.

You can change in this section to change the function of the resulting key

As I recall this can also be used to remove the function keys from being non-existent but I suggest not because this works for the external keyboard as well.

If you want to stop ghost typing problems because of your internal keyboard, you can use this application:

Keyboard/Button Mapper

This application will not map the external keyboard function, it will only map the internal keyboard

Combinations can be added as in the keyboard function should be

That's all from me for now because I'm running out of words.

Thanks that is helpful. Can I bind the default home function to a different app using this method? Like the default is to open launcher3, but I want to change it to nova? I can't set default launcher using normal method so why I ask this

As I recall here it only serves to change the basic functions of the keyboard to do more specific things I don't think it's possible to do and it's probably not something that can be done just by changing the keyboard function.
