Default [Q] Modifying Motion Gestures

I use double tap to wake almost exclusively to turn my screen on, but I find some of the other HTC motion gestures annoying or problematic. For example, I have pulled my phone out of my pocket, while accidentally holding a volume button, and the camera app opened. This is generally an annoyance, but I have had this occur in a dark room followed by blinding everyone near me with the flash. I'm using ViperOneM8 at the moment, but didn't see an option to selectively enable these gesture controls.

I'm sorry I wasn't more clear. I want to disable to landscape+volume to turn on camera, but I want to keep double tap to wake. I don't see any option to do that.

Completely agree with you; I find myself triggering voice calls more frequently than I'd like. Unfortunately, the current ROM only permits "all" or none with the motion gestures (hopefully they'll fix that if enough folks complain).

I believe that option is in the camera app settings.

That setting only affects the volume button function while the screen is already on.

It is a all or none approach as a previous poster stated as far as I can tell. Can wait until the devs figure out how to mod that.
