The smartcover function relies on a couple of SMD components that are on the home flex. Unfortunately, many of the third party supposedly "OEM" whatever that means do not have these components on their home flexes. You'll need to buy a digitizer assembly that has an original quality home flex, or desolder and switch out your aftermarket home flex with one that is original quality. I wrote a post about this that has the pictures so you can see what I mean: [https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=602395119844799&set=a.589851364432508.1073741829.563144703769841&type=1&theater|post about different quality ipad mini home flexes] Also remember to transfer the magnets from your original screen---these aren't required for smart cover function, but they do help hold the thing up when vertical.
