Default OEM S-VIEW CASE HOW TO Disable Sview software

Does anybody know how to disable the sview software that pops up while the OEM s view case is installed? I'm wanting to have access to Google Music lockscreen controls while the cover is closed. Thanks

If you don't want the S-view functions at all, you could remove the IC chip from case.

An excellent point although some folks have received a free case when they purchased their phones. Either way, he can still head over to ebay and get one if he doesn't want to screw up the OEM case.

Knock off feels like a knockoff. But I have one in the mail so I will do a side by side. But you get what you pay for. I like the wake function but don't use most of the apps on the s view. I think it's crazy nobody knows how to turn it off. As much as we mod this should have been hacked a long time ago. This case just obviously isn't very popular with the people who do the modding. I will add info later to this post when i do a side by side. Hopefully it will be useful to someone.

Or maybe it IS popular. I suspect the reason why no devs have wanted to disable the S-View functions is because that's the entire reason that bought it to begin with.

Doubt that. I have the knockoff with the window and it's perfect with stock lockscreen and the lockscreen music far more usable than the sview cover software. There has to be another reason that's being overlooked.

Lol, so the metal connectors in the case is actually just a simple piece taped to the case so I just peeled it off and at least I get music controls now. But the sview software has different touch sensitivity than the rest of the software so the screen is unable to be used while the cover is closed when not using the sview software.

You could turn the extra sensitive mode on for the touchscreen somewhere in the settings. It's called glove mode or something.

isn't the music control part of the s view software using the window, if you somehow disable the s view feature, the music function will also be disable, if you must disable, have you tried going into.

settings/more/application manager/all, and try to mess around the software to disable the feature if it's available, becareful not to disable the wrong features or some phone feature might not work.

Try sticking some tape over the metal connectors on the cover
