Screen Off Utils

Screen Off Utils


*** For everyone who cannot uninstall this application:
There are many way to do so, e.g.:
1. Press the "Uninstall Screen Off Utils" in the "Configure Screen Off Utils".
2. Uncheck the "Enabled Force Lock" in the "Configure Screen Off Utils" and you can unisnstall it as normal app.

This can work with stock Android 4.0.X and 4.1.X:
There is option to enable the workaround for android 4.0.4. You can enable it ONLY IF you have screen off problem in 4.0.4.
P.S. I only test this solution with Galaxy Nexus and Sony Xperia S but i think i should work on most Andriod 4.0.4 devices.

Screen Off Items: Shortcut, widget, notification area
Screen Off by events: Connect Power, Disconnect Power, Remove Docking.
Action: vibration, Animation
Permission: Allow invoke Screen Off by other application by API with Action = "hk.suiaing.android.lock.screenoff"



Important:
Must checked the "Enable Force Lock" and activate the Force Lock before the application can screen off the phone.

If animation does not show, please go to "Setting" -> "Display" -> "Animation" and select "All animations"

Known Issue:
If you move the application from device to SD OR from SD to device, the application will not work until you disable and re-enable the "Enable Force Lock" to activate the Force Lock permission of the application.

User reviews of Screen Off Utils
Useful, greatest app to screen off the device without use standby button! Perfect on Desire HD and EVO 3D.

Does what it says. Best solution until I find a way to lock my screen with the trackball. Icon lost and need to set permissions again after reboot. (HDZ, Cyanogen 6.1)

doesn't lock the screen if "Auto Screen Lock" is OFF. It turns it OFF (screen), not lock it. I installed hoping that i could manually lock my screen when i want it. uninstalling from my LG Optimus One (Froyo)

Works great. I'm hoping for a better icon though.

Works beautifully. HTC Desire Froyo. Icon resolution can be increased. Great App!!! Read description to see how 2 uninstall before giving low ratings due to that.

Very Good It does as it says and it DOES NOT have all the GARBAGE ADVERTS in it telling you to upgrade to a pro version . I do NOT need all this CRAP ADVERTS in a simple program that should have been included with the OS --------------------------------------------- Like windows phones have this included in the OS and does NOT cost anything more--------------------------- HTC ONE M8 BadBoyz Rom--------------

Good, but needs screen off without locking This has more control than most screen utilities, but the one thing I would really like, is to be able to turn off the screen with the widget without locking it.
