TWRP recovery is working perfectly fine for me
same bug as before tgat you have to wait for it to sleep before waking it up with vol keys
i think the bug is specific to you
cause i was even able to flash thr deodex rom and create backup using TWRP

Interesting, I have found and fixed the part which was causing this exact same issue on my previous builds on the xperia z and various other models... That was caused by a bug I personally introduced by implementing a new backlight control. The issue is fixed on the other models now...

I'll have another look for it, maybe some of the device repository flags are making it go haywire...

Cwm works fine, but does Philz Touch work as well?

Possibly, yes. It seems to be coming from a different source here though, probably the driver.

If anyone is willing to help me debug this and has some knowledge of linux commands, you can contact me by PM to arange a Hangouts session or to agree on a time to meet up on freenode IRC. I'm in #TWRP now, I'll be running off for some groceries soon, but will be back shortly.

Hi,

Moto E had exactly the same problem in twrp so I asked cybojenix about the solution. It was a problem in the touch screen driver. Here is the commit which fixed it for moto e - https://github.com/cybojenix/kernel_motorola_condor/commit/1687140f4fb6c9f3c4d68e92381253801192f7b3
I tried to implement the same kind of fix in our touch drivers but couldn't figure out how to do it. Also, the kernel source for kitkat isn't out yet.

Regards,
abcdjdj

Well, my latest attempt tries to deal with it from the top down, as it has to work on stock kernels, I'm switching the screen off and on again as if the time went and the device is woken up again.

I still have no idea if it works: I don't own the device to test it.

Can you give it a test and see if it works? https://github.com/xNUTx/android_de...lob/cm-11.0/recovery/twrpgraphics.c#L683-L684

I am not much of a geek here, but I have installed this recovery and TWRP is so far working good for me. Successfully taken a back up of system rom.
