I had a search through, and have found this feature being adding onto other phones (via root and kernal changes mostly it seemed), but ouldnt find anything for the compact or the Z1.

Anyone had any luck with this? Seems a handy feature.

I tried the taptapapp on the play store, but its a poor substiture (uses proxy sensor) and is a bit too unreliable.

Knockknock seems to be a versoin that got rooted onto htc and some other phones via kernal I think.

Just wondered if anyone had seen this on the xperias

For Xperia Z1 there are already custom kernels with this feature.But nothing yet four little z1 compact we'll have to wait until some dev will port this to our phone.

im waiting for this to be icluded in a custom rom or kernel for our little machine... its specially useful in running apps to wake the device without pushing poweron button.

can you provide me to these kernels' threads, cuz if they've shared their sources,
I might be able to find the code to enable tab2wake feature,
and once I find it, I can integrate it in Z1C kernel's sources and compile it for you

I'm sorry I am on my phone right now...it'difficult for me to search using the phone.But if you look on the Xperia Z1 forum you will see it.One is made by Androguide.fr and the other one is made by DoomLord and faux if i remember well.If you will give a try to compile one kernel for our phone would be great.Have a good evening.

I think doomlord already does a kernal for the Z1c.... but it doesnt include Tap2Wake, as far as i can tell. I wonder why not.

I couldnt find the doomlord one offhand... Im sure I've seen people mention it though. However there is this one by androguide.fr :

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2690071

It mentions something about touch events waking the GPU... noone mentions tap to wake specifically, but I assume its involved or something?

edit 2: Doomlords Z1c kernal
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2620794


They seem to say they'll only work on unlocked bootloaders, and androguides says it only works on CM based roms... though im not sure why. Ive noticed a couple people on RomAur are using doomlords (but the doomlord one doesnt mention tap2wake lol.)

Anyone gets this working stabley, maybe even on RomAur3.0, I would be very happy. If someone gets a stable kernal idea that should work on stock kitkat (not CM) then I may test it out myself. Hopefully we can get something working

So the question is ...will you support this model? I think that you already know that this device is exactly a smaller Xperia Z1. Thanks in advance dude. I really love your work. Have a nice day!

Hi,

Sorry for the late reply. I took a break from Android. I don't plan to support this device unless I can get one really cheap or free. May be crowdfund if you want it bad enough.


This is my conversation with Faux.I think Faux makes the best kernels for android based devices.Maybe we can raise funds for buying a Xperia z1 compact to him.
