Default [Q] S-View

Running a Sprint SPH-L720 Galaxy S4
Carbon Rom 1/20/14 Nightly (Kit Kat 4.4.2)
I need to get my s-view working again with my windowed cover.
It worked on my stock MF9 Rom, but the software is not there in the Carbon Rom.
I have the s-view apk's from the net (i.e. Hatroid s-view) that use the proximity sensor for the effect, but they are not the same as the stock software that uses the magnet. Is this software proprietary to Samsung or is it available to us?
Any help would be appreciated, I have been looking for awhile with no luck.

From what I know you have to use a touchwiz ROM in order to use the sview properly with the magnet.

Any way to break apart touchwiz and get that feature working through an .apk if I'm on a custom room like Carbon? Is that available?

Nope, it will only work with the TW framework and rom. If you want Samsung features you have to go back to Touchwiz.
