I installed Sensor disabler abt 2 months ago but proximity sensor is not disabled during phone calls. The screen still blanks out when they phones is brought to the ear. What am I doing wrong?

Try version 2.0.1, for me is the last version that works during phone calls. 2.1.x seems to work in some apps but fails to work for phone calls.

Thanks.
I uninstalled the latest version and installed 2.0.1. Is selecting 'remove sensor' sufficient or do I need to add a mock sensor value to make it work for phones?

For me, disabling the sensor is enough.

Unfortunately, this version you speak of doesn't work for nougat. I'm pretty sure that mock sensor values will work with the latest version

What sensor values work to prevent blanking the screen during phone calls?

Just set it at maximum. Let's see if that works

Did you even try it? For some reason you seem not too eager to try mocking values.... I did not even have this mod installed anymore, but decided to reinstall it just to check again. Mocking values WORK for phone calls over here on nougat, where removing sensors did not

Yes I have the mocking values set to max and it works. Thank you. I waiting to see if the effect persisted before writing back.
I appreciate your help.
May I ask why you didn't use this mod anymore?

I actually needed it for the tasker plugin, but the plugin doesn't work

Neither does the mocking values. I just got a phonecall and when I put the phone to my ear the screen went blank. I think I'll just uninstall it and live with the proximity sensor on. 😥

Did it work at all in the first place? Someone said it works for him till he rebooted, and then will have to set it to do nothing first, and then mock values again, before it works again, after each reboot. It's kinda buggy, and this might be the case with you... if it worked at all it might just not be holding after each reboot... try this and see if it works before finally giving up

1) Do nothing 2) mock values
after each reboot (if it worked for you in the first place)... Tasker woulda been handy...
