Default Bye bye pen window

First off thanks for stopping and seeing if you could help with my problem.

I used towelroot to gain root and tweak stock on sprint note 3, which worked perfectly. After installing busybox, supersu, and Xposed installer I went about reclaiming my phone from bloatware and limptard features. At one point I searched what apks were safe to remove from TW based roms, one that wasnt specified in the list was rakein.apk which I ASSUMED (<-- the whole reason for the headache...not confirming its true function) was part of scrapbook due to its icon....nope it controlled pen window.

I need to find a way to reinstall rakein.apk to system/app without it being cleared upon reboot.

Steps attemped so far:

Restored through original backup method-failed

Manually placed apk in system/app, corrected permissions to rwrr-failed

^ that plus mounted system r/w then unmounting partition for reboot-failed

Sideload-failed

---------------
Havent seen anything other fixes except a fresh flash from sammy.
Theres nothing changed on my sprint note 3 except for xposed and active modules all of which ive scoured for possible solution.
Sadly I didnt have a current sys backup either.

Thanks again for everyones help.

Have a good day.

You can always Odin back to stock and reroot. If everything else fails.

Ya... I was just hoping there was a reason for not being able to just restore it but I guess I broke it lol. Thanks

I have not used touch wiz for a while but what does pen window do? I use Tasker to pop an application menu and change keyboards when I detach the S-Pen. I am using SlimRom also.
