Default Nova Launcher - Knock On feature not working

This is obviously for the v500 version.. Has anyone installed nova launcher and was able to use the knock-on feature to turn off the screen? I can't get it work

The feature works fine to turn on the screen

Thanks

The screen off anywhere function only works on the LG Launcher. The only way to turn the screen off anywhere else (inside an app, system settings, using another launcher like nova) is to double tap on the notification shade on the top of the screen.

If you're CM rom, the screen off function does not work at all yet. Screen on, fortunately, does.

Awesome! Thanks so much,

Didn't know that this feature works in the notification area. That's good enough for me. ☺

You can also download Turn Off Screen from Play Store and in Nova gestures you assign Double tap to call Turn Off Screen shortcut

Ah, quite useful. I was afraid there'd be a persistent notification . I really have to make use of the gesture feature in novs.

GMD is another option, works on any launcher, anywhere with gestures for screen off.

Thanks .. Looks like a tally nice app, but it required root access unfortunately. I haven't made up my mind yet to root the device. I'll probably do it soon (not that tech savvy to root a device)

Rooting is quite easy and well worth it if you want to do anything other than use the base features and base everything. Many people even take it a step further and put custom ROMs on to get updated Operating systems or unlock other features. Within this subforum is a thread all about roots and roms and helps explain everything in very simple easy to understand terms.

Here is the link o the thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2554121

Good luck! Let us know if and when you have rooted and we can help you get the knock knock feature going to turn your screen off in nova launcher

Edit: It does look like the suggestion of using screen off does NOT require root, the app just needs to be set as an admin which can we done within android without having to root.

Awesome. Thanks for the reply. I'm off from work until the new year. I'll get some reading done on that "Android ABC" post to learn the basics of Android structure.
