- Foreground service mode- This means you see a notification icon in the status bar. You can jump directly to the settings by opening the notification. This serves to ensure the service will work at all times. It does not impact memory usage, battery, or OS performance. It also makes it more convenient to open settings without having to hunt for the icon.
- Wakeup screen- The lockscreen bypass occasionally takes the CPU a short time. Normally not more than 1 second, and most often it appears to be instant. The wakeup screen displays a clock, & automatically clears itself when the lockscreen has been successfully bypassed. This is a great benefit because it takes the same amount of time as using the unlock slider, but you get it done with just one button press. This screen is a preview for the upcoming optional wakeup homescreen we are working on for the beta. It basically provides things that used to be on the lockscreen & other useful things we wished were on it- sound mode, brightness, clock, and other useful tools, or even any widget you have on the device can also be placed on it.
- Added our custom icon.
- The phone will no longer incorrectly bring the lockscreen back while a call is in progress. If a call ends with the screen on, you may see the lockscreen come back. For now this is normal, but normal auto-unlock resumes correctly.
- The home button recent-apps shortcut and the search button now respond correctly after auto-unlock.
If you dislike the persistent icon & notification panel presence, the option is forthcoming to disable it (with a disclaimer that we do recommend running it in foreground mode for stability).
