Im not totally sure if this could work, but could it be implemented into our next kernel?
Its possible. I had it on my evo. I've never seen it on another device besides htc. I'm not saying it hasn't been done. I wanted this for the esteem. It will definitely require some kernel magic.
I've never heard this term. Explain it.
Watch video closely and you'll see what it does....
Sweep2Wake - HTC Sensation - Bricked-Kernel - YouTube
its closed source
says the rewrite called sweep2wake is open source
apologies, thought they were the same thing
It's pretty handy. You basically swipe your finger on the capacitive buttons at the bottom, from left to right to wake the phone, and right to left to put the phone to sleep. It's kinda like hitting the power button to wake, or put the phone to sleep. I like it because it gives my power button some rest, and the fact that you have better usability because you can wake the phone up a lot faster. A phone with a bigger screen would make sweep2wake more useful. Just my 2 cents.
