I am trying to activate the double tap to unlock feature on my freshly setup Sony Xperia XA2 running (Sailfish X BETA).

As described in this post I executed the command mcetool --set-doubletap-wakeup=proximity and restarted my device but the double tap feature is still not working. Setting the LPM screen using mcetool worked but activating double tap does not work.

Do anyone have a clue how to activate it?

On Xperia X this is happening to me with UI rotation. Do you have UI rotation patch? It is known to cause the problem if I recall correctly. It might apply to XA2 too.

@deloptes No I don't have any patches installed yet. :)

It is really bad if it is not working... :(

was anyone able to activate it? It is kind of must before leaving my aging JollaC...

The XA2 has no double tap support.

Like even down on the hardware level or just the necessary bits are not yet implemented in Sailfish OS software ?

I think it could be implemented but right now it's not available. On Xperia X it could be activated by command line but it could get buggy or drain the battery.
