    Good morning all, anybody having used an S6 knows the battery is garbage,
    But what would help me is being able to turn off the Home Button as it turns on the phone all the time in my pocket...
    Any ideas....

    Edit : to turn off the wake function...

    You using an aftermarket launcher? If it's something like Nova you can assign it to nothing for 1 press and nothing, or whatever you want for 2 press. I have mine set 1 press goes home,2 press sleeps phone.

    Yes, using Nova, and it's already set to "Nothing" but it's the Wake function I'd like to kill.

    install Xposed Framework and a module called Wanam Xposed. After you've installed these and rebooted your phone, open Wanam Xposed, go into "System," scroll down to "Disable wake HOME button" and put a check mark in the box. Reboot your phone again to apply the change

    Works on rooted phones only.

    Thank you Mark, but Rooted.... For all I know with 6.0.1 on the S6 cannot be rooted, effectively, and I believe the S5 was the last phone I'll root, unless... ;)

    LOL, but it was fun and necessary back then amigo, but with the locked boots and the better batteries (present S6 excepted) it's no longer a requirement, or fun...

    No it really wasn't necessary back then. You just had the wrong phones.
