all over
I know it's been reported, but add me to the list, waiting for the fix in Oreo:

Sleep doesn't work, home doesn't work, screen shot doesn't work, etc. The only thing that works (and that I use) right now is toggle status and nav bar.

Also, root request is going crazy at once per 30 seconds. As a result I had to disable the gesture for now.

Guys is there a way to export the gestures.... I had to factory reset my phone today. I took a backup using titanium. But when I restored the backup the gestures were not restored in this app?

Kindly reply

Hey XDA, I have a rooted Galaxy Note 8 (SM-N950U) and GMD (full version, not S-Pen version) seems to not work at all. I've recalibrated my screen and still nothing is working. No swipes or even holding gestures. Anyone know of a fix?

Are you rooted? :p
Probably check "Override touch device" and choose another one. Had some phones in the past who needed that.

Tell me if you find it out, I got a Note8 for cheap, and if I can't use this app I won't root (Thus trip knox). I'll rather sell the it then.

Do you know what option did you use? did you do the manual calibration as well?

I think I already tried all combinations of "touch device" x " touch event perser" on my xiaomi mi a1 without any success

I tried to make manuel calibration but it is always "0x0"

Are you rooted? :p

No, it's different for each phone, as they all have different parts. Did you actually apply the option after setting it? The service needs to restart after each change.

I think the parser can stay on "Modern", and most devices I had, had a touch device from Synaptics.

Yes, it always worked for me. Are you sure you have also restored the data? Probably you missclicked and restored only the app without data. There are two options
Yes I restored the data also.... But it didn't restored any of the gestures. The app had the default ones only. Anyways... Now created them.again. all.other apps get restored flawlessly with their data....

Yeah I'm rooted via SamFAIL. It won't trip Knox


Your advice worked. All I did was change my resolution and the touch event parser to "modern"

I have huawei p10 lite, I use the paid version and often the program does not perform the functions, only if I lock and unlock the screen again or open the program and exit, then the functions are again performed. Fix it please.

    I have searched google play and coolapk to find an alternative gesture app for my new android 11 phone. No one has GMD's passthrough feature because of their non-root overlay implementation. With passthrough feature, I can use app's native border swipe and GMD's oblique/up/down border swipe at the same time. I usually bind oblique swip to back function.

    Also, I don't need to leave finger from screen to make the next gesture, because the gesture starting point can be anywhere, instead of the overlay.

    I am very happy to hear that GMD is still working on android 11. I will try GMD on my redmi k40 after I can root it.

    Thanks, PhilipTD, for generous donation :highfive:
    As a sigh on gratitude I built you latest development version of Gesture Control with Lollipop support. This is the first time I'm sending someone lollipop update.
    Quite a few features do not work but still it is usable :eek:
    Please let me know if you did not receive it.

    Progress update:
    I'm currently working on Spen Control lollipop support but a lot of internal thing are common. However UI part is separate and while I updated Spen Control to 'material', GC is still holo.
    I will be releasing SPen Control first with refreshed ui and lollipop support but I want to make bigger update for GC and add/rework many things that were discussed here or I just have in mind. Some things are already implemented but need to be merged into master some still need to be done. Main idea is to clean up GC so it is more intuitive to new users but more advanced features still will be available when digging deeper into settings.
    1) One good example would be path and recorded gestures. In new version I want to join them in one dialog. So user can pick from predefined set of path gestures (swipe left, swipe right, double tap, expand, pinch, etc.) or record it but entering custom path string still will be accessible. At the moment it is confusing for new users they would they want to enter path instead of recording (pinch for example).
    2) Another example is launchpad settings. Currently its confusing that you have to select which launchpad you want to configure. In new version settings will be accessible directly from launchpad instead and configure particular launchpad.
    3) Blacklist - each gesture will have option to select apps where it is active/inactive. General blacklist will be simplified where you can select if gestures are enabled/disabled in homescreen, apps, lockscreen and keyboard.
    4) Default gestures - I will remove default gestures tab and pre-create these in User Gestures for new users. Lite version will have limited number of available actions but users still can change gestures for these actions.
    5) Settings, touch consumption, Advanced tabs, Help will be moved to menu. App will be Gestures view.
    6) Touch Consumption - after user multitouch screen several times with 3 or more fingers but do not execute any gesture app will popup a tutorial explaining touch consumption with link to settings. Now quite a few new users are confused why their effort at Fruit Ninja does not give any result.
    7) Reviewing/regrouping/fixing actions - so far I was just throwing in new actions. Some didn't work on particular android versions, others didn't work on some devices. I haven't decided how it will be done but I want to clean it up. I want to add plugins support too (downloadable from play store) so some really niche things or some bigger complex thing could be moved there.
    8) Backup/Import/Export - long time promised, its time to add it.

    While such things don't add much for experienced users it will improve overall 'quality' of the app.

    Why cant I just release an old version with lollipop support? I don't have such version. I added lollipop support to half broken/work in progress version and I intend to move forward instead of backporting it. Its not just SeLinux/root issues that needed to be fixed. Some internal Api changed, recent apps work differently, etc, etc. It will be released when ready. Family > full time job > Android (4-20 hours per week).

    Thanks hasenbein1966, for donation :highfive:

    Update:
    Currently Launchpad and Blacklist are completely broken. UI is mix of material and holo. There are still some issues with recent apps. I will create alpha version G+ channel (without support) for lollipop version when I have more stable build.
