Motion Detector No Longer Working After ICS Update

2012-07-02, 14:43 PM

Hello,


The motion detector trigger is no longer working after my ICS update on my Droid Razr. Before that I had battery extender operating with no issues - it turned off background data and syncing when the screen was dimmed plus there was no movement. After, the battery extender will trigger every time my display goes off, ignoring the motion detector. Or other times it won't trigger at all, even when sitting on a flat unmoving surface. I've tried disabling and re-enabling. I've tried clearing the cache. I've deleted the rule and redone it several times. Sometimes I can get it to work if I shake the phone vigorously before place it firmly down, but not always. Before the update to ICS, it had the right sensitivity and worked every time. Currently I'm running Smart Actions version 3.1.5.1.2. 


Is there any way to make this work again? It's such a shame to lose it, but I don't like having the battery extender kick in every time the screen goes off (as, if it times out while I'm looking at it, then I lose all my data while using the phone).


Thanks!

Have you done a reset since the update?  It can be a last resort option, but i was not sure if you had tried that yet.

I'm working with Turtle to see if we can come to a resolution. If anyone else has an issue with Motion Detector please comment

 Yes I just tested and experienced the same result as the OP. Battery extender mode became active even with the phone in motion. I shut off the display and kept the phone moving for about 30 seconds...turned on the display and battery extender was active. Expected result: the continuing motion of the phone should have prevented battery extender from becoming active.

My phone is also exhibiting exact same behavior as the OP's. Its like the motion detector sensor is getting stuck in either the no motiion or motion mode. This behavior also started after the upgrade to ICS. It worked fine on GB.

Same problem on GB after updating Smart Action to current version.
Also sometime settings are not restored when action switches off eg silent mode stays on when Sleep action goes off.
