    Okay, so I went through all the threads here and didn't see this one. I hope I'm not double posting!

    My double tap to wake and slide up to unlock is not working on my M8 running Marshmallow, stock "T-Mobile", Sense 7...

    Basically any Motion Gesture is not working!
    I've tried to clear the cache, uninstall the motion gesture app, which I can't do! My phone does not give me an option to remove the app.. It's seems to be a known issue though, went in the app store yesterday under the HTC Motion Gesture app and a lot of people are complaining theirs has stopped working as well!

    Any one found a fix??
    Thanks!

    Just to be sure--when you go to the Motion Gestures menu, everything there is turned on the way you want it? HTC One (M8) - Turning Motion Launch gestures on or off - GETTING STARTED - How-tos - Support | HTC United States

    Also, any recent system updates?

    I did have this problem on the m8 for a few weeks. Even with it turned on in the settings, it did not seem to respond to a double tap at all. Suddenly it started working again but I am not sure exactly what triggered it to work. I'm on android 6.0. Try restartin the phone or factory reset if needed.

    OK so my motion gestures started working this morning.. I did a hard reset a few weeks ago and everything was running fine so, I didn't want to do another one.. Like you I don't know what triggered it to all of a sudden start working.. But I'm happy it is working, when it becomes habit to unlock your phone that way it's hard to break habit 😆

    Glad it's working again! Next time, instead of a factory reset, see if a cache partition wipe does the trick: https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-10672. This way, you won't lose any personal data.
