Hi everyone,
I wanted to disable screen waking up by home button - which causes many random wake ups while I keep phone in my pocket.

key bindings are stored in /system/usr/keylayout directory, but I've found HOME button being mapped in multiple different files:
Generic.kl:key 102 MOVE_HOME
Generic.kl:#key 172 HOME WAKE
Generic.kl:key 249 DUMMY_HOME1
Generic.kl:key 250 DUMMY_HOME2
Generic.kl:key 252 DUMMY_HOME
Vendor_045e_Product_028e.kl:key 316 HOME
Vendor_2943_Product_0020.kl:key 172 HOME
atmel_mxt_ts.kl:key 102 HOME
gpio-keys.kl:key 172 HOME WAKE_DROPPED
qwerty.kl:key 102 HOME WAKE
synaptics_rmi4_i2c.kl:key 102 HOME

I already have tried removing WAKE mapping for HOME and WAKE_DROPPED from Generic.kl and gpio-keys.kl, but it didnt help.

Does anyone have any idea how to disable HOME wake up for galaxy S5?

If your on alliance ROM I'm pretty sure you can just simply change a setting in alliance settings.

Wanam Xposed has an option to do that but not sure if it works. It's in System, scroll all the way down to Buttons. You'll need root for that.

Excellent suggestion. I can confirm that this works on the S5! What a relief!

I use exposed editions, it's brilliant because I can now have my home button to activate power after two quick presses, there are many options for button configuration with it, definitely worth a look
