Hey there,

I just started to use Mahdi ROM on my gpad this week, and I find it great for the moment the only thing is that i can't get the smart cover to work....
Any ideas ?

It works but for me opening cover only turns on the screen but does not unlock it.
Also the IVSO cover I use seems to have magnets all over and when I fold the front cover over the back the magnets close the lcd screen so I have to leave it open and hanging which is less than idral

I'm using the latest Mahdi update along with the IVSO cover and it's working flawlessly. It unlocks and locks immediately when opening and closing the cover.

Yes, the AOSP lockscreen without any security.

When i have it on slide to unlock when opening the cover the screen lights up but i am on the lockscreen and must swipe to unlock it.
When I was on the stock LG ROM, this was not the default behavior, it would unlock straight into the home screen when opening the cover.

I'm running the lockscreen that come with the ROM with swipe to unlock. Is there any settings for the smart cover ?

Edit : I'm running Dyn.Kernel r2

Running CM11 latest nightly with IVSO cover, I was able to use the smart cover until I flashed Dyn.Kernel r2 kernel to it. I then thought that the other kernel (GPE port) might restore the functionality, nope. It seems like the different kernels are breaking smart cover compatibility somehow. I can only assume the same thing is happening with Mahdi and its CM dependencies.
