[MOD][Xposed] Disable Desk Dock

Requires Xposed Framework!

This module disables the desk dock feature on your device.
If anyone's wondering how this is useful, I made it for my Xperia Z1's magnetic cable, Sony sells the cable in a dock, so using the cable by itself puts the device in dock mode, which forces rotation regardless of my choice, and if the cable disconnects while my device is in car mode, it switches off car mode, which is kind of annoying while driving.

Compatibility:
Tested on my Z1, I coded it with 4.2 in mind, may or may not work on 4.1 / 4.3, trying it won't do any harm.

Source:
The mod is open source: https://github.com/MohammadAG/Xposed-Disable-Desk-Dock

This finally solved the annoying problem with my GT-P3110 (Galaxy Tab 2 7") with Go Launcher (pro). I use Go Launcher also on my tablet to stay consistent with my Xperia Ray - where it works flawlessly. On the GT-P3110 I have to adjust the environment with "App Settings" to be DPI 240 and font-size = 99% and then Go Launcher can be used perfectly for my taste.

The problem with Go Launcher and the GT-P3110 was that Go Launcher restarted every time I have set the tablet in the original dock or when I put it out of it. So any transition from or to desk-dock mode gave me a break until Go Launcher has reloaded all apps
Reporting the problem to Go Development team (twice actually) has not revealed a solution over months - but your module did it - thanks!

Exactly what I've been looking for!
I ran into the problem of some apps closing down due to dock mode, but this seems to be not a problem anymore.

Tried this on my droid maxx xt1080m. It's still bringing up car dock.

My issue is walking around with my phone stacked on top of my tablet in my hand. I guess I could freeze car mode. Any ideas?

Full Uninstall help
I know by myself it's kind of a stange question but, since I'm facing a very courious issue, I'm here to ask if there's any suggetion on how to full disble and remove this module.
I have the phone going into a sort of bootloop when swithced off (only way to recover is "power + vol up" long press combo).
And this is one of the last modifications I made, plus this happens only when I connect the magnetic cable.
Thank you all for your support.

Mr Mohammad sir. Is there any chance this module could be edited to block the detection of the pins in the USB connector that starts car mode? I have googled and googled and have come to the conclusion that on the M8 and its predecessors have faulty USB ports and are prone to collecting dust and/or just being faulty. It is extremely annoying flipping on and out of car mode when have never used and will never use car mode.
