Proximity Sensor Re-Calibrator For Desire HD
Due to many Desire HD’s being incorrectly factory calibrated with regards to the proximity sensor, XDA forum member leppie has written an app to help change the calibration on the fly and persist over re-boots.
Reported symptoms of the proximity sensor include the screen failing to turn off when holding the mobile device to your face during a call, and the screen turning off when on a call but failing to turn back on – requiring the battery to be removed.
