Question [Q] Home button in SView on 4.4.2

Hello,
I already started to solve my problem in the SView-Mod-Thread, but before I spam it with too much off-topic, I created a thread in the right place.

The problem ist self-explaining, since the update to KitKat and UENB ROM, SView is working properly for the genuine SView-Cover. I am using the Spigen S View Cover and this cover has a home button, in detail it has a lay-in in the front cover to push the home button of the phone. On 4.3 it was possible to wake up the device with the home button, also it was possible to activate the torch by pushing the VolUp button. On 4.4 it is neither possible to wake up the device with the homebutton nor activate the torch.

It seems that some users have the possibility to use the buttons, but no one can explain what they did or what the reason is. So anyone, who could give some advice, how it is possible to reactivate the buttons in closed mode?

THanks in advance.

Xposed framework... Allows the use of torch using volume buttons when screen is off.
Not sure if the "home button" is supported by the sview case mod....

My ROM supports the genuine Samsung torch, that is enabled with VolUp, no Mod needed. This Mod doesn't change the behavior of the buttons at all, so there must be another way. And I am looking around for it since a while now, because it annoys me to not be able to use the full functionality of my cover.

It's a pity that Samsung always changes the running system. Maybe some users complained about false wakeups because of pushing the button through the cover. Samsung neverminds about third party accessoires.

We have to encounter, where the hardware button lock is triggered or maybe port the old SView apk to KK. But just too little knowledge about that on my side.

This was one thing I noticed straight after I upgraded to KitKat, I have the official s view cover and I used the home button all the time to wake my phone up as it's just easier and I could do it with one hand. Now since Its been disabled I have use lock button which is just a pain in the arse! Also when on a phone call with s view cover closed I have to press the luck button, not big issues but I hate it when things get changed for no reason!
