_____________________ DESCRIPTION _____________________
To all who don't know this yet, this is a kernel module with a control application which allows you to wake the device using gestures on screen. For now supported options are:
slide your finger on screen to wake the device (by default: left to right of the screen)
slide your finger on screen to lock (sleep) the device (default: right to left but over the software buttons area)
if your device goes to sleep (locks) by timeout and not by pressing power then if you touch the screen in the specified delay timeframe the screen will turn on again without a lockscreen. This won't work if you lock the device using power button or slide2lock.
Quickly tap twice the screen to wake the device
Video on Galaxy Nexus (didn't have time to make a new one):
I've made a Nexus 4 version which for now works on stock and cyanogenmod. More kernels might or might not be supported.
Either way here are the links.
Oh... and the name changed to TouchControl
_____________________ FAQ _____________________
will it work on kernel X
It is made to work on stock kernel. It might work on kernels which are close to stock. I will however try to find a way to make it as compatible as possible. I'm going to assume that you can safely try this mod on your kernel (but don't enable set-on-boot) worst case scenario is a reboot.
does this consume battery
Short answer - Maybe.
Long answer - this might bring some drain, some users report quite a big battery drain some not, I will address this issue in some time. Check yourself how much an issue it is for you.
will it break my touchscreen
Short answer - No
Long answer - digitizer is turning off so its not working all the time. The same mod works for more then year on my Galaxy Nexus and it never lost a bit of it's responsiveness
why do I have to pay
Why did you pay for your phone? You did save a few bucks on the phone which was cheap. Now is your chance to make those savings worthy
if I bought it for galaxy nexus why do I have to pay again
Even though it doesn't look like it it's not so easy to make it work on new device. As you can see it's not only device specific but also kernel specific. A lot of hackery and tricks had to be done to make it work without a glitch.
if I want to marry you where can I find you?
Oh... this question meant to go somewhere else ;P And I'm taken.
REALTIME MODULE REQUESTS STATS PER KERNEL ____________
Quick info about stats - it shows how much requests I'm getting for each kernel. So even if there is no module for that kernel it will be accounted as request. Also only one request per user per day is accounted. These stats are from last 7 days.
When you press download at the module loader prompt I am actually getting info about your kernel. This is added to the stats if haven't requested during last 24 hours.
