Too weird, worked indeed for me as well!🤔 Massive thanks, otherwise i'd be f.... I have tinkered with my case to invisibly add car mount magnets, so gariantee would be a no go 😏
Putting in some more info below since it might help others finding this easier 😇
S21 Ultra clear view cover issues, does not work , stopped working after December android 12 software update.
Had this before after EACH software update on S21 (never had issue on s6, s8 or s10 w/clear view cover though). But up till now a removal/reattaching of the cover and sometimes a restart helped getting it to work again.
Not this time though. Tried all else: wiping cache partition, turn off/on NFC and other suggestions i found to no avail.
Then after some deeper searching found this thread and whatdoyouknow:
Removing cover, connecting to USB (pc in my situation), putting cover back on, removing USB and it works again 😳
Many Thanks Gonzovisionairy!!!
