You mean the official flip shell isn't able to turn the screen off/on in CM 11/PA? I'm pretty sure it's kernel related and should be fairly simple for the dev the fix. Maybe try reporting it on the thread.

He means, the smart cover app (for covers without magnet to turn the screen on and off using proximity sensor) doesn´t work with the moto G and the moto g LTE

Because there is a restriction that prevents access to these sensors, actually it's sort of a bug and only the system user can access these.

Even things like Skype can't access them while you're incall.

Maybe as root you can control them, but the app needs to be using that method.

This one works very well on my Verizon XT1028 with a generic non-magnetic flip cover (stock 4.4.4, not rooted, bootloader locked):

Don't know if the problem may be specific to Paradoid or CM roms, however; but worth a try I guess.

I cannot give you a proper solution regarding your problem but I can tell you alternate way, which can be used to wake screen, there is a app named "Gravity Screen Pro - On/Off"
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...tyscreenoffpro
and it not only works on proximity sensor but you can use other sensor to work it and its not battery hungry, I also tested this on a phone without proximity sensor, works like a charm, free version of this app also available in market, hope it will resolve your issue
