This is taken from Gerda OS. You just need to replace 3 files from the js folder of system app with those from Gerda OS. 


This is what you get at the end.


Slider full open         +      power button           =    minimize app     (If you exit an app by pressing Back-button, now the app closes completely)

Slider partial open    +      power button           =    screenshot

Slider full closed      +      power button            =    normal power button function

Slider full open        +      hold power button    =     task manager




Download js.zip from below link and extract.

You will get 3 files :-


task_manager.js

hardware_buttons.js

app_window_manager.js


Steps:


1. Get copy of system folder


adb pull /system/b2g/webapps/system.gaiamobile.org

(if you edited system folder before, you need this command : adb pull /data/local/webapps/system.gaiamobile.org )

2.Now open system.gaiamobile.org/application.zip/js/

 Now drag the downloaded js files to the opened js folder one by one.

 Now close the zip

3.Push the app and its folder on the data partition, exactly in /data/local/webapps using a temporary root access
 
adb push system.gaiamobile.org /data/local/webapps

4.Get the webapps.json file:

adb pull /data/local/webapps/webapps.json

And change the value of the system.gaiamobile.org app

  • "basePath": "/system/b2g/webapps",

in this way

  • "basePath": "/data/local/webapps",

5.After this change push the webapps.json file in its place and reboot the phone:

 adb push webapps.json /data/local/webapps/

 adb reboot


Note :-

Do not press Back-button in task manager. To go back, press Power-button. If you accidentally pressed Back-button don't
worry. Just hold Power-button, it will again open task manager, then press power-button.

Looks great, thanks. Justo to be clear - does these changes break future OTA updates? Or are these changes effective until next OTA update only?

these changes are safe and are effective until next OTA update or factory reset, because all the modification is on the /data partition

Can we please make it work on other kaios devices too? Like maybe Nokia 800 Tough and 2720 flip. 
My idea is: 
hold messages buttoon and click back button - minimise app
hold messages button and click and hold the back button - task manager
