The options menu button in Android is currently used for updating your deployed-on-device app with the latest bits of your project in Icenium (so you can test the latest version even when not connected with a usb). This behavior however is observed only when your app is built in Debug
mode. When your app is built in Release
mode, the LiveSync feature would not be included in your application and therefore the menu button is not utilized. We would consider whether introducing a programmatic way for invoking the LiveSync is viable and if so, implement it.
You can change the build mode to Release
through Graphite: right click on the project solution -> Build Settings -> select Release.
About handling the menu button yourself and showing some menu - you can display a menu on the "menubutton" event triggered on the document. Here is a blogpost in which the writer explains how to use a little script he wrote for displaying a menu: Building a HTML Options Menu for PhoneGap Android
