Default 4.4.2 killed my S-view home button

I knew 4.4.2 would piss me off somehow, that's why I delayed installing it for a few days.

So I have a Spigen case with the S-view. The home button used to wake the device up and let me see notifications.

Well thanks to the boys at KitKat, this doesn't occur any more.

Is there a solution to this most irritating of problems?

Great response guys, cheers.

So ever since I made the horrible mistake of downgrading to 4.4.2 - I still have the above problem ^^^^ which neither Samsung nor Spigen can help with.

Additionally, my battery is now being sucked dry by something called "GlanceViewMK" which is taking up more battery than the screen.

Any idea what this is? because I'm about ready to throw this phone out. I haven't got time to spend trying to get a phone to work properly because the KitKat crew screwed up their coding.

I might just get an iPhone

This reminds me of being a computer tech back in the late 90's and having to deal with Microsoft 'updates'.

If u are on a custom Rom try reinstalling. (Best solution imho)
But isn't there an option to wake up the device via home button? xD

I'm using the Spigen Case too and everything is working like it should.
