Cool Custom kernel double tap to wake, is it available?

hey guys...so I was searching for this in hope that there is a custom kernel for the Z Ultra that can do this.
IMO this is really helpful for this big guy thing is as I've read, the kit-kat update will skip this feature from Z2 and on the AOKP thread (the rom that brought this to the Z line) the dev said that the Z Ultra screen is not synaptics enabled "puzzled as what this actually mean"

so, long story short, IS THERE ANY CUSTOM KERNEL THAT CAN EFFICIENTLY EMULATE THIS FEATURE?

many thanks ^_^

I guess we'll get it at one point, but it's not possible quite yet (as far as I know).

I think it is possible, as long there is an app for the galaxy nexus (and other phones but I tried it only on my old galaxy nexus) which allow you to double tap to wake (really useful when in class )

It's hardware dependent with regards to the digitizer I believe.

yeah that's what I thought also, maybe the digitizer on the ZU is not up to par with what is needed for this feature to work well. -_-
a confirmation on this would be most helpful

we'll see after the KK update lands

It's not in the leaked system dump from the ZU 4.4.2 build (unless that was a fake/hoax)

Don't some custom AOSP roms (or was it aokp i can't remember) allow the double to wake feature on some phones? I don't see why it wouldn't work on the Z ultra, just need someone to develop it. (Z ultra doesn't have one though)

Ok folks, thanks to the work of @reaper61616 we now have two roms that have DT2W. His build of PAC-man has it built in and my build of Carbon has it as a replacement kernel in post 2.
the kernel on the Carbon thread may boot other aosp/cm11 based roms

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2692552 PAC-man
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2671948 Carbon - see post 2
The Carbon version has serious issues and the phone will often not wake at all

If you like this feature thank reaper

Before flashing a kernel make sure you have a backup in case it wont boot. ie nandroid
