I have tried the following :
1. Disable s-view from system settings
2. Renamed and changed permission for system/app/sview service.apk

I heard from another developer to change the value from OPEN to CLOSE in hall_detect file located at sys/devices/virtual/sec/sec_key. But I can't write into the file or rename the file.. The only thing I can do is change the permissions, but that doesn't help..

Does anyone have any idea how this sview works. It's become annoying when I play movies or games on my S4..

Many thanks
AJ

Well people say just by removing the L1 screw in our phones under the back, the issue gets resolved.
There is one screw name L1 just under our cover.

Hey Man,
didn't work for me with my GT-I9500 and "The AirDock" still the s view lock screen comes on. Had that screw fully removed and had put the back on after that. Anyone other Ideas ?

Could someone upload their orginal SViewService.apk + SViewService.odex (both in system/app) because I have accidentally delete my ?

First Thanks for uploading your files but sadly I think I broke something because I geting only a black screen with statusbar at the top even when I paste in your files back in and this happens since I accidentally delete my. (before that black screen with time, date and so on)

I found no process or app or autostart that contains "s view" or something like that. How did find it and how was it named ?

Okay I understand. My problem is I can't find it (screenshot) there mainly I broke it somehow but do you know if there is any way to install a app back into touchwiz framework because when I try to install that apk it fails.

You saved my ass, thanks for that. After getting root and so on I tried to follow your instructions. The App was there and I stopped it but needed only one tap (clicked once ->Force Stop) and then stick it on the phone holder but again the S View Cover Screen comes on (with time/date and status bar). I have no clue what to do now because I can't deactivate the app even.

EDIT: When I deactivate the app per third party app (https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...nup.Inteks.org) the black screen comes on without time and date. So there is any other process that start when a magnet comes close to the S4 ?

Does your dock have something magnetic??
A magnet triggers that stupid sview.

Use any custom rom that doesnot have sview. It shall get solved.

Yes, of course the holder has magnets too so yeah I know its triggering that view but I thought that view could be fully disabled without a custom rom.

A custom rom is no solve for me right now.
The Question would be how the S View got removed in the roms then I could do the same for my stock rom.
Found out that the Hall Sensor triggers that but found nothing to disable or something like that.
