Funny thing however...After factory reset, it worked for a time, then stopped. I've heard it's a KITKAT situation but I'm not really buying that. Anyway...I found an app that replicates this function called Vibify. Works great, minimal battery drain (if any), the ability to turn the function with a scheduler etc. Try it out.
XDA Developers was founded by developers, for developers. It is now a valuable resource for people who want to make the most of their mobile devices, from customizing the look and feel to adding new functionality. Are you a developer?
