*** YOU MUST BE ROOTED TO USE THIS APP ****

This app will recalibrate a worn or dirty proximity sensor. If your screen does not turn on after a call, then your prox sensor either needs to be recalibrated or is burnt out.


Usage:


1) Open the app. If your screen does not turn on after a call, it should report the word "NEAR."
2) Increase PS2_CANC (High Threshold) until it reports "FAR." Go one or two values past where it first changes.
3) Cover and uncover your proximity sensor and verify that it reports NEAR and FAR correctly.
4) If you want the values to be set on boot check the box.
5) Post the values that work best for you along with the ROM you're using in this thread. Hopefully we can use them to find better default values.

If any combination of low threshold and high threshold does not make your proximity sensor function as it should, then it is most likely burnt out and you need to warranty your phone.

Neat. Low 13, high 51 is the crossover point for my phone.

Works great, Chad. Mine was on the edge, so to speak. It worked sometimes, and didn't others. Bumping high up to about 54 and it's working great.

the defaults worked well for me. What does the low threshold do though? Changing it doesn't affect the responsiveness.

65 for the high works pretty well for the distance it should be when holding to your ear, but being more sensitive (detecting near when my hand was farther from the sensor) at the defaults also works.

Had to set the high on mine down to 14 just to get "near" to show. Tested on a call and it works perfectly now. Thank you Chad. I'm using the global firmware and it never worked correctly after the ruu.

Okay, this is pretty incredible. Thanks, Chad, invaluable fix for my poor Rezound's post-call-black-screen bug.

Default settings work for me as well.

You are the best!

Gotta say, this is a pretty awesome tool. I've been trying to use this app called "Wave Control" that uses the proximity sensor to control media players and have just had absolutely no luck until now.

Couldn't tell if my sensor was just worn, dirty, or burnt out. With this app, it was reading "Far" constantly, but after some messing around, I finally got it to register again. Oddly enough, the values working best for me right now are:

Low Threshold: 5
High Threshold: 36..

Not sure what this means, but I'm just glad it's working still. Thanks for all the work you do, Chad. You're invaluable to the Rezound community.
