I modified the Nfc.apk of different bases and ROMs to offer you the ability to use the NFC chip of your Samsung Galaxy SII Skyrocket not only while you are active but also while the screen is off and/or while the lockscreen is shown.

You have three options when to use NFC:
  • screen off
  • lock screen
  • unlocked


USAGE
  1. Rename the Attachment to Nfc.apk
  2. Backup your /system/app/Nfc.apk and Nfc.odex (if existing)
  3. Delete /system/app/Nfc.odex (if existing)
  4. Replace the original in /system/app - to keep permission use adb:
    • adb remount
    • adb push Nfc.apk /system/app
  5. Reboot phone (adb reboot)
  6. Disable NFC
  7. Enable NFC

The compatibility depends on the framework/base. If your ROM has the same specifications like one existing you can use the posted.
If none of the version work (test it!) make an Feature Request


Changelog

20.10.2013 - added APKs for CM10.2
20.10.2013 - imported into DevDB
17.02.2013 - added APKs for CM10.1
17.02.2013 - thread opened



Download
Please don't forget to thank if it works, if not we will make it work.

Thanks, works perfectly. I wonder if there is significantly more battery usage as a result of keeping NFC polling on during screen off.

Booth work while unlocked and with the lock screen. But the screenoff+lockscreen one doesn't work with the screen off. Thanks a lot for your work.
