We all familiar with the screen off gestures available on Oneplus One. Double Tap on the screen unlocks the device, making a circle opens the Camera application and making a ‘V’ triggers the flashlight. With a big 5.5 inch display these screen off gestures really help you as the hardware buttons can be difficult to reach for some people.

Unfortunately, there is no option to change these gestures according to our needs. Well, everyone doesn’t needs a quick access to Camera or the flashlight. Some people might use some other application intensively and would want to have quick access to that application. Fortunately, for those users who want to have custom screen off gesture here is a mod which enables you to launch any application with the camera gesture.

The mod has been made by xda member Thomson2412 and has been tested on CM nightlies. Although it should also work on other ROMs based on CM12.1 nightlies. Make sure to make a Nandroid backup of your ROM before installing any mod on your device.
