I know this issue has been mention a bit, and I've searched through countless threads but I find the search system on the site a little counter intuitive, like forum searches will only bring up the thread, not the actual key word references and I have to search again within the threads to yield results, but I'd like to clarify a few things.
I'm running Cm11 nightlies on the phantom kernel and I have the screen wake issue. It takes multiple attempts to wake up the screen. OK.
I understand this is a problem with Kitkat roms for our device. However, my case is that there is a 50-50 chance that the screen doesn't wake up at all and I have to pull the battery. This makes any rom almost unusable for me as 1 out of 2 times I have to pull the battery to access the phone, Music continues to play, and I can skip tracks or play or pause, and even take photos, which means that the phone unlocks only the screen doesn't light up. If I hold down the power button, I can feel the phone vibrate to indicate the shutdown menu and sometimes I can blindly reboot or turn off the phone by tapping the screen roughly where the menus would be, so the touch is working.
Roms have been reinstalled and dalvik wiped etc but no improvement
I'd like to know if there's something I've done wrong to have so much poor luck. I don;t mind waiting for the screen to light up, or even a few tries, I'm aware of the unstable nature of nightly roms, and I am happy to use it and contribute usage stats to help further development, but not being able to get the phone on is a massive problem, especially when receiving a call
If anyone has any tips, I;d love them to let me know so I can add here as a one stop thread to general KK problems and work-arounds.
Pr m,aybe it's just my phone
Xposed framework modules
kk bugs fixer (currently disable as seems to make no change)
no lock home
Xposed gel settings.
No crazy overclocks or aggressive governers (tested with ondemand, intelliactive no difference, but great battery)
General rom experience apart from this - Excellent battery and very snappy, only a little skipping with audio (even with cache increased to 4010)
