Hi all,

I saw some great stuff to wake phone swyping directly on the screen, like PGM on play store (for Evo 3D and Galaxy Nexus), and was wondering if would be possible to have it for my One X.

I was using Faux kernel including S2W, and really liked it, but I think it would be better/easier/more useful if we can wake touching the screen, not the 3 buttons.

Also, for exemple in Nova Launcher, there is the option to launch an app making other gestures than swype, like pinch or rotate. Do you think it would be possible to wake the phone just pinchin screen when off ? What about battery drain ? Lot of users had complaints about S2W draining the battery, but I didn't noticed a big difference with or without this feature.


Do you think a feature like this would be useful ? Technically, is it realistic ?


Sorry for poor english

nobody has any idea or interest in such feature? I think it would be great to have the possibility to pinch the screen to wake it, so easier than swiping over the buttons, and with less fails. And I don't think that kind of gesture could be easily done while phone is in the pocket.

Hello, great idea but not so "feasible" easilly ... imo

How do you swype on a screen which is not activated ?
You will let the screen always activated ? I don't think the battery will appreciate.

Maybe you can activate the touch screen without the display screen
but that should surely need a kernel modification if it's not "hardware" locked.

The only app i see that make something very similar is Tap Tap Tap
and it uses the proximity sensor ...



PS : I never achieved to make Tap Tap Tap work correctly each time i Tap Tap

Yes, kernel modification should be needed, the Evo 3D app PGM is a kernel module. I emailed the developer, who explained that he logically can't develop apps for devices that he hasn't got. But if it works in Evo 3D and Galaxy Nexus, it surely can be developed for One X.

His app does not seems to drain too much battery. Anyway, if it is possible to make it using 2-fingers gestures like pinch or rotate, maybe it should be possible too to only activate the screen when there is this double contact. I don't really understand about development, but had read something like S2W was not draining battery because of activation only when the 2nd button was touched.

Tap Tap is not compatible with ICS 4.0.4, can't try it...
But many comments say that it drains battery a lot, and can easily wake screen when in pocket, so it's more like an option you punctually use I think.

Well, only 10 votes, but 60% love the idea.

Would be a great feature included in future ViperX 2.0 rom
