Default Disable home button from waking Samsung Galaxy S3 and Note 2.

Thanks to konnector ||||Update: This works on the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 also. I just confirmed it.

Here's a quick tutorial I have to keep your Home button from turning on in your pocket. I was having this problem it was killing my battery. I found the solution I figured I'd share it with you. Follow the steps.
Here is a link to my video tutorial.

1. Open root explorer
2. Select mount RW on this top of the screen.
3. Go to the folder system.

7. Hold down on GPIO file and select view text
8. Delete home and change wake to wake_dropped
