[HowTo] Disable home button screen wake
*** I AM NOT TAKING ANY CREDIT FOR THIS, I JUST HAPPENED TO GOOGLE IT AND FOUND IT USEFUL AND WANT TO SHARE***
I found it on another forum posted by a guy name ERIC.
**Update (8/19)** THIS MOD SHOULD WORK FOR ALL ROMS! I did it both on AOKP and stock. Gonna look into what else can be edited and post results
If you're having trouble with your phone waking due to the home button, this is the mod for you.
I work in a restaurant and i keep finding that my phone gets quite warm in my pocket because
the screen comes on (it also likes taking screen shots, and sometimes even opens the camera).
Hope this is helpful for you guys.
