[Q] Screen goes black during call, CM10.1 dialer
Hiya folks. Running CM10.1 stable on my targa (aka Droid Bionic). It was beautiful except for lack of nav dock support, a problematic Google Now (different problem, with workaround), and this particular problem, which I hope someone know what I am talking about...
When a call comes in and I answer by the slider, the screen goes black, whether or not I held the phone up to my head.
I cannot turn the screen back on. None of the buttons seem to do anything, though backlight for the 4 hard buttons does turn on indicating that some command was received by the touchscreen. Not even the power button will bring the screen back during the call.
If the other party hangs up, the phone goes back to normal.
With screen off, I can't hang up.
I can hang up if my Bluetooth headset was connected and I hang up with that.
I've searched all over and this issue seem to be a pretty popular issue last December across all CM 10 builds. However, I don't know if this was ever resolved for this build.
I can't find an option in the ROM to just flat "turn off face proximity detection" either. Or in any way to "tweak" it.
CPU-Z says my proximity sensor is working, so I guess it's just not calibrated properly for the dialer?
Can we get a "special hidden tweaker" much like the light sensor tweak for the auto-brightness levels?
