I have also had this happen to me, but only on 6.5.x, so far not on any com2 builds.

Re: Phone goes into Align Screen Mode!!!

There was a post a few months ago about this. Happens on my stock sprint rom. Some random side button and screen pushes cause it. Known HTC Issue.

Re: Phone goes into Align Screen Mode!!!

I have had this on custom roms as well (flashed day 1). I installed csdevctrl and set it to lock the phone when a call is connected to solve the problem.

I thought it might have something to do with the firmware concerning the proximity sensor, but never really figured it out

Re: Phone goes into Align Screen Mode!!!

When you hold down the volume up and down and tap the screen it comes up.

Was discussed a couple days ago.

yup, this is exactly it. i had that problem and realized that it only happened when i tried to adjust the volume in-call. turned out i was accidentally hitting both up and down and my cheek hit the phone.
this is an annoying flaw

Re: Phone goes into Align Screen Mode!!!

I have a fix for this!

It is a hardware fix, but it works, and more importantly (for me anyways) it confirmed that 100% of my Align Screen issues were from this "feature".

Here is the fix:
1. Remove the battery cover, and carefully remove the volume button assembly from the rest of the cover by removing the tops of the 2 melted plastic pins. (I spun a small drill bit with my fingers)

2. Take a piece of fine wet/dry sandpaper and tape it to something flat. Put a little water on it, and sand down the buttons so that they are slightly recessed to the battery cover when held back in place.

3. Reinstall the volume button assembly, with a drop of glue on each plastic pin, or re-melt the plastic pins to secure.

This allows you to still easily adjust the volume, but makes it much harder to hit both of them accidentally as you can feel the hole in the battery cover if you are touching it there when taking it out of the case!

Hope this helps!
