nice, although no root required makes no sense considering you have to copy and paste this to /system that requires root... or am i missing something?

You can do it from recovery which has system access even if the ROM doesnt have root privileges.



What I am wondering though is if you can use fastboot to simply boot recovery without flashing it, and would you be able to do that command without unlocking the bootloader? Or does booting a custom system file require it to be unlocked?

Idea is just like rooting.

You need to some how replace the power.shamu.so once, and thats it.

Some people dont like phones to be rooted, as some software are really particular with root such as 'good for ent' or banking app. Idea is so that these people can still have doible tap to wake.

Hence you require a unlocked boot loader.

Eg, i guess i can also repack the file to a flashable zip, then user can just flash from recovery.

Note, i found that your tap needs to be quite consistant (can't be too fast or slow. There is a specific window)

Don't think there is such feature. One you Mentioned is ambient display which I choose to switch off. As I believe it might detect lots of false pick up.

the double tap to wake also detects a TON of "false pickups" as you say. If the phone is in your pocket your leg can wake up the phone, or other conductive objects in your pocket or purse. The double tap feature is far more battery draining than ambient display waking up when it detects certain movements.
