The life of me I can't find it I'm on arrow OS I don't know if the structure is different or what
Point of this all is to nuke proximity sensor (more stability during calls) and let the macro do the job of auto dimming the screen when call gets active and waking it up when call's done. No more no less. So no more pressing the powerbutton or whatever.Ok, thanks...
1. The screen is locked with the app, but I have to manually dim the screen by pressing the power button? Hmm...
2. When the call starts I have to switch loudspeaker on and off again before I actually can hear the one who's calling (or the one I am calling resp.) over the earpiece (is there any solution for this bug out there? or has it even been solved and I'm still doing it out of habit? ).
Unfortunately, it seems that this mod would make the whole dumb workaround procedure even more frustrating (for me)
no worries. i know that the proximity sensor on this phone is just trash. cheers!Unfortunately, the problem with the proximity sensor is extremely unsatisfactory - a feature that always worked reliably since my first smartphone was mightily screwed up by Xiaomi. I guess everyone who makes several calls per day is annoyed by the behavior and is looking for solutions. Therefore, it is of course highly gratifying if among the annoyed users there are also a few developers who can program solutions.
My frustration with the proximity sensor was not meant to blame the dev for not bringing a solution that works for me - the criticism is solely for Xiaomi. As I said, I appreciate the developer's work! Therefore, sorry if my post came across with a bad mood... I'm glad that the workaround app offered by the dev helps many users
Thank you for your answer! Earlier I was still unsure, now I know: the loudspeaker on/off "game" isn't over on my device - I just tested it. For an outgoing call, I have to deactivate the loudspeaker only after the ring tone, otherwise the earpiece remains silent. Unfortunately, this ring tone sometimes starts after 1 second, sometimes after 5 seconds - and sometimes without waiting time the call starts immediately. So, I don't think it's possible to create a universal solution with a macro.
The thing that works for me, on the other hand, is that the phone stays locked until I unlock it (lucky me! ). Initially, this accidently wake-up also happened to me, because I came to the fingerprint sensor with the index finger or thumb - but here I have now also re-educated myself
Anyway, thanks for not resigning yourself to the status quo and continuing to look for solutions!
