    Default Motion Launch for AOSP-based ROMs (Non-GPE) Vzw M8?

    I've noticed while flashing various AOSP ROMs that some support motion launch gestures to wake the device, similar to Sense 6, but that the majority do not. I was hoping to find out which ROMs have this feature. I use Liquidsmooth ROM, which used to have this feature, but seems to have been discontinued from the looks of the last few nightly releases.

    I do realize that Liquidsmooth, and probably others, allow enabling wake gestures by going to settings>performance>kernel tweaks and selecting "sweep 2 wake", but it lacks the orientation sensor functionality, the multidirectional swipe gestures, and the landscape volume button launching the camera.

    I am considering dropping Liquidsmooth if there are similar alternatives out there that have motion launch capabilities.

    Any advice is greatly appreciated!!

    The motion launch function is kernel based, not ROM based.

    So I would look through XDA for a kernel

    I appreciate the info. It looks like the only custom kernel available for my phone on XDA only has that lame "sweep 2 wake" feature that I mentioned before, but doesn't have the normal moron launch.

    Since my last post I played around and found that paranoid android, slimkat rom, and pacman rom all have motion launch enabled - presumably by way of their respective stock kernels..

    Has anyone else found other ROMs that have this feature?
