Thanks for your prompt reply. Unfortunately none of the physical buttons mute the ring for me, including the volume balance button. I suspect this is for a module in Exposed framework focused to buttons management; I uninstalled it but I guess it messed up the android script.

Any suggestion about how to solve my issue ?

Pressing the volume button should work. If you think that there is something wrong after modifications that you have done to your phone you can always flash stock and see if it works again.

If u use Xposed Modules, use GravityBox which has a option when enabled mutes ringer volume just by flipping the phone (screen facing down)....

Yes, this would solve my problem for sure but I keep this as the last chance: I would avoid to root again, doing again all the customizations, etc

Nice idea but it's a feature that would increase the battery consumption.


Anyone knows how android mutes the ring in an incoming call ? Which are the names of the files storing the relevant parameters?
