[Q] Nexus 4 Android 4.4.3 Volume Rocker Wake

Hello,

My LG Nexus 4 was never rooted or modified with any kind of mod or launcher.
Phone info : Nexus 4. Android 4.4.3 Build : KTU84L

Does anyone know a simple add on that allows waking up the phone with the volume rocker?

I'm not looking for an app as they drain battery life and probably won't work properly.

I've seen some mods for earlier versions but i have no idea how to match them to my phone or install them.

Thanks!

Yeah, you need root and then you will be able to flash a custom kernel that supports volume rocker wake.

Root with the Wugsfresh toolkit, it's basically idiotproof

Then install the Xposed framework (search on XDA, it's a huge thread) and then download Gravitybox from inside Xposed. Install it by following the Xposed instructions, then have fun with all the customizations you didn't know you wanted but now can't live without!

Don't root like an idiot. Just unlock the bootloader:
fastboot oem unlock
Then flash a recovery
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img.
Boot into recovery and install super su

Much better than a tool kit

Once you've gone ahead and installed a custom recovery (and rooted your phone) use the following link for a mod that saved my life and my phone.

This is not an xposed module but a zip file that you flash through the custom recovery. Works like a charm.
