problem is only with hall sensor or sensorhub ic u805. you can also check whether the aluminium frame magnetized or not by using a iron piece. and try to turn off the S View Cover feature in my display> acc... like i mentioned in previous post.
for hall sensor testing, i almost finished my new android app, i will publish it and upload into xda soon. its running as a service+activity (b'cause. when doorcloses the activity get freezed and unable to log status. it log status again only after phone wakes. so i wrote part of sensor readings in service and display report in activity) and log the status when ever the door event raises. i mean Doorclosed/DoorOpen. and you need to open the application activity and see the report with timings and door state changes.
thanks, in the idea of getting my phone replaced, again i visited the service center today, and they have taken it for service. ok
Please let me know about both senor - magnetic and Hall sensor... whether these two are separated from motherboard or attached to it.
