For those who haven't had any luck with tap to wake or swipe to wake, I have the AOSP Lunar kernel with Trickster, and I got it to work so long as you have pocket detection turned off. That seemed to work for me, hopefully it helps some.
Welp, a couple seconds in the microwave solved my dilemma. I hope. It won't come back on.
Next question, my replacement device has 4.4.2 on it. Will the current S-off tools work to flip it from S-on to S-off?
Yup, just follow the directions...
