Hi,

I just got my OPO today. One thing I noticed is that if I lay down my phone on my nexus 7 case, the magnets in it turn off my screen. Is there any way to disable this?

Don't lay it down on your Nexus case maybe?

Yeah that's fine but what about other magnets. I have no use for the magnet lock so I would find it better to just disable it.

This should work. I didn't know that this feature is supported on the OPO. You need root for xposed

I'm not even sure there's a magnet lock on the OPO, it's the first time I hear about that

I tried to move a magnet around my phone, but it never locked

Are you sure it's not the proximity sensor which locked the phone ?

The N7 was underneath the OPO so no it wasn't the proximity sensor.

Hmm. I guess I'll try that. I usually use ART but haven't really felt the need since this phone is so fast already. Thanks.

Try a rare-earth (Neodymium) magnet, it needs a strong magnetic field to trigger which won't always work with your average fridge magnet. The receiver is located on the right side of the screen in the bottom third.

I just tried with an ipad smart cover, and I confirm this !

I'm quite surprise no one ever talked about it

The feature is listed on the product page for OnePlus' own flipcover, see "Automatic unlock"

Just an update. The xposed module seems to work. Didn't turn off like it did yesterday. I do wish it was an option in the ROM. I know some nexus 7 ROMs had the option. Or at least you could set it through a script.

Turning the screen off using a magnet requires Hall sensor and apparently OPO has one
