[Q] Second thoughts after flashing CM11 on Note3

Figure this...

I rooted my Note3 and happily installed CyanogenMod11 nightly (KK4.4.2). All fine and very happy, but I miss the S Pen features and apps.

How would it be possible to get S Pen features back, but remain on CM11?

You cannot get all the features back however you can try

GMD SPen control, as it has some SPen functions, used it myself without issue.

Hmmm... GMD looks promising. Thanks alot. But... does your answer also mean I can forget about re-flashing S-Pen API separately somehow, and re-flashing the original S-Pen apps? Is that a totally stupid idea?

I know some of you readers will think "well, why did you root and flash another rom from the begining, if you liked it before?". Well it was originally full of bloat - we all know that - and the only thing worthy was the S-Pen features and the pen itself.

Anyone tried?

Thanks again.

Yeah you can't flash SPen stuff due to it being dependent on the TouchWiz framework.

I like the menu pop up when you click the pen, to take screen shots and take a quick note. Honestly I rely on them daily since I use my phone for work also, I probably wont flash due to this.
