Sweep2sleep

This is a kernel module for sweep2sleep. The new motion gestures are nice, but there is no way to put the phone to sleep with gestures. To make it worse, the power button placement is awkward. It bothered me so much, I've built this module. It is based on @show-p1984's sweep2wake2.


Swipe your finger from right to left over the navbar and your phone will go to sleep.

I will update this soon, with some improvements and also to work with GPE ROMs.







Download:

Sweep2sleep module for Sense 4.4.4 stock kernel (thanks @lyapota)

Sweep2sleep module for Sense 4.4.3 stock kernel (2.22 base)
Sweep2sleep module

Older version:
s2w_mod





Installation:
Flash zip in recovery


Un-installation:
While in recovery, do:
Code:
adb shell rm /system/lib/modules/s2w_mod.ko /system/etc/init.d/40s2w

Requirements:
In order to load automatically at boot, you need init.d support and busybox. If you have a custom ROM it should work.

For stock users, you'll need to insert the module manually:
Code:
su
insmod /system/lib/modules/s2w_mod.ko



Source:
Module was compiled against Nexus 5 kernel source with m8_defconfig. Some symbol CRC checks had to be hexedited in the compiled module.
s2w_mod.c

Out of interest, has it changed since the previous version? Will keyboard swipe still turn screen off?

I changed it, now it's only active directly over the navbar. Before it was almost the whole bottom third of the screen.

My issue with swipe to sleep on the m7 was that the home button minimised the app you had open. And I didn't always want to do that. This has basically increased my love for this handset 10x over. No need to touch that damn stupidly placed power button... AT ALL.

Thanks!!
