Smile [APP] [v2] PEN Window Manager - Easily Enable Apps for PEN Window

Hello Friends,

Just thought I will share a very simple app I made to enable or add additional apps for Samsung's Galaxy Note series with PEN WINDOW feature like the Galaxy Note 3. For those who are willing to try, please do and would appreciate feedback. I have not tested it on a Note 3 device yet because I don't have a Note 3 so please test and let me know. Thank You.

PEN Window Manager: version 2 PLAY STORE LINK

Changelog: 22 October 2013
* removed busybox dependency
* added ability to disable default apps
* more error checking
* ability to open Pen WIndow drawer without using the Spen [Only with the PEN Window Launcher addon/plugin]


First, make sure you are rooted with busybox installed.
Second, make a backup.
Third, just download below and install as nornal.
Or download from the PLAY STORE.
*** Please uninstall version 1 if currently using because of signature conflict with version 2. I have to change signature for app to meet Play Store requirements.

Fouth, run the app and enable superuser/root permissions. (it needs permission to save changes)
Finally, just tick the apps you want and don't forget to press the save button. A soft reboot maybe required for the changes to take effect.

NOTE: If you have previously edited others.xml or features.xml, you may have introduced some errors to the xml file layout which would prevent this app from properly functioning. Editing the said xml files manually is not advisable due to human error of breaking the xml structure by accident. If this app does not work after previously manually editing the said xml files, then I suggest you restore the original unedited xml files.

For those who don't seem to have a /system/csc folder and either others.xml or features.xml files in said folder, then you may want to try a custom rom that includes it but if you want to try, you can create the csc folder and procure a copy of others.xml or features.xml and put it inside the csc folder.

Have FUN!




BIG THANKS to @soloilmeglio for the TIP.

Didn't work for me either. Is it because I have edited the others.xml file previously?

Worked great for me on a T-Mobile Note 3 running Jovy's Deodexed Stock ROM. I have not made any edits to those files previously.
