How can I get to wake up phone by capacitive buttons? I mapped "search" key to "power' in keylayout => it can turn off screen, but can't wake up. What can I do?
In theory there are hardware buttons, so is limited by software. How to disable that?

Well, the softkeys aren't actually "hardware-buttons" like VolUp/Down and GKey, i think. For me it would be very surprisingly if it works. I doubt it.

Waking up the phone bye proximity sensor (responsible for making the screen dimmed when phoning) would be very nice, in case od the phone just lies on the table and you want to do sth quickly.
Unfortunatly i didn't find an app or sth similar which can do this.

Any suggestions?

EDIT: I found an apps called "tap tap app".. doesn't work properly on cm nightly 70 though..

I think it also related with the driver at kernel stage... so the Vol Up/Down and G-Key are supposed to be mapped at the driver.. But I don't know about capacitive buttons, perhaps it can also remapped..

Hi guys, I know this is an old topic but I am looking for same solution that I know works because I have been using this method on my Galaxy S2 (t989) with HellKat rom.

With Hellkat rom installed on a Galaxy S2 (t989) aka Hercules, you can touch all capacitive buttons in one particular order only which is from left to right.

You first touch the options button then home, back and search button. As soon as search button is pressed the device wakes up.

I am now running Lollypop and am wondering if this was a function possible through an app?
