    Default Back Button MOD

    Is there any app or mod I can use to lock/unlock my phone by pessing and holding the back button down. I really don't like reaching all the way to the top for the power button and I feel as if this would be easier.

    Thanks!

    Yesterday I learned of something called, "auto on screen". It's mentioned a couple times in this thread:
    GS4 vs One: Made up my mind.... HTC One it is

    This might be what you're looking for, but I haven't tried it out yet.

    I tried that app. It's okay but not really great. You can set it up to wake up if you touch it or move the phone.

    Honestly, you'll need to flash a custom Rom or kernel for this. I use cleanrom and I turn on with the volume keys and with bulletproof kernel you can long press the the HTC logo to wake up. I don't believe there are any reliable apps to do these things because you need to modify system settings normal apps don't do that.
