Re-program page turn buttons?

Both of my "page right" buttons work, and neither of my "page left" buttons work, and I was wondering if there was a tool or a tweak I could do to re-program the "right" button on the left side of the kindle to page left instead


Thanks!

I am not aware of an existing hack, but that souds doable. Different kindle models use different button codes. What model is your kindle (first 4 characters of your serial number)? A K3 (listed as your "Device").

Maybe by adapting something like this on a K3?

The question is if left and right "page forward" buttons have the same or different button code or not the same.
I used to use that linked LounchPad script to remap two buttons just next to D-pad (I think it was Delete and Enter or maybe Sym instead of Enter) that I needed the least, in order to avoid spreading of the hairline cracks in plastic that my Kindle 3 had i both bottom corners of the screen.

Edit: IIRC @seaniko7 also posted a custom kernel or something like that with some similar type of buttons remaping.

Edit2: Here it is. It had space button as page forward
