Hey guys,

somehow I actually don't like the Dot View Case but woudl really like to take advantage of the Dot View functionality.
So my question here is (since I could not find a topic related to this) wheter it is possible to add the ability to use Dot View screen (by e.g. double tapping screen)
without the case. Since this is done by some kind of magnetic detection should it be possible to do this by software or kernel modification.

Any ideas about this by people how got some knowledge about this is highly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!

Not yet. Limited features for DotView. Basics for now, no such mods.

Well, you can at least use the features with ANOTHER case than the dotview. You can take the magnet from dotview-case and fix it to some other case that has a cover for the screen.
I guess that is not what you intended. Additionally a dotview display watched without the cover is ugly, to say the least.

Yeah... I'll agree with this. It's NOT dots. It's giant colored squares designed to shine through the holes in the case.

Turn on dotview, and activate it with a magnet, I suppose.
