Double Tap To Wake Up?

I heard about, that the DTW-function is actually not possible on Xperia Z1, because there is an other display obstruct.
Are there any batteryproblems with it?
Maybe you can explain how it works

@venkat kamesh why do you need to include the mpdecision binary in the zip? Will the kernel work correctly if flashed only via fastboot? I am asking becouse there are files related to wifi in the zip that will not be installed if the kernel is flashed via fastboot. Then you should tell users to flash the zip after flashing via fastboot or remove the files from zip if not needed. :)

Yes Double tap to wake is not possible only with Z1 compact not with other devices nad it drains
for more
google it buddy

@venkat kamesh why do you need to include the mpdecision binary in the zip?
actually mpdecision file runs in our system as a vendor executable file and what it does is that it controls the governor for cpu.
this file will defines performance of your cpu1, the file gets executed every time your screen goes off
and mpdecision file overwrites the cpu1 governor settings to userspace ondemand, userspace is the governor when cpu1 is online and ondemand when offline.
so i used it ;)

I know what mpdecision does. But it is already included in the stock rom. In one version of the DooMKernel the binary was renamed. To revert this DooMLorD included the stock binary in the flashable zip. So unless you use a modified mpdecision binary it makes no sense to include it in the zip.
