Default Smart cover with AOSP ROM

Just wondering if anyone has been able to come up with any solution to get a smart cover or the auto sleep/wake function to work on an AOSP ROM, I just purchased the IVSO cover and been stuck on a stock ROM to be able to utilize it. Thanks.

I don’t have any cover yet, so haven't been able to try it out. But you try this app on play store.

There are other apps on there for making it work. Stil waiting for CM to include it as an advanced option.

These apps rely on proximity sensors (which this tab doesn't have) or light sensors which are extremely inaccurate. So while they can sometimes work they usually don't. A simple change in the ambient light will turn your screen on or off. I think we just have to keep waiting and hoping that the cm11 (or w/e rom you use) crew manages to crack LG's code for using the magnetic sensor.

My GPE seems to work with the IVSO cover/case.

Does it really, hmm. If it does I hope the AOSP roms should be able to get it soon.

Extracting it from the GPE rom would probably be the best solution

QuickPad™ - Direct Access to screen : When opening / closing the cover, LCD is automatically On/Off.

Searching the stock rom for this app, if I find it I will try installing and/or flashing it to see what happens. Here goes nothing.

EDIT: App does not install when trying to execute the apk. And flashing it will put it in /system/app but it doesn't appear to do anything. Maybe I have no idea what I'm doing but here is a zip file containing the apk and odex file.

Interesting.. I reckon we're deeper down tho then this app. Simply put, the proximity sensor isn't picked up as set-up in the AOSP roms fro v500. We need the proximity sensor to be picked up as hardware in order for any app to do anything. The application I linked you, where it used light to shut off the tablet can also use proximity, but since it's not there on our pad, we're left in the cold for now.. This app may work better once the proximity sensor is in. But usually CM and AOKP and so forth always included this feature themselves without the need for flashing anything.. At least for the Nexus 2012 I had, and well, all other devices kindof turn off when you hold them close to your face, simply because the proximity sensor is recognizing it, to turn off.

With that said, I'm still downloading this file. :P
