Disabling proximity lock on Galaxy S4
Hi, I couldn't find a concrete answer Googling.
Is there a way to disable the auto screen locking function when I close my cover?
I bought a couple of cheap case covers from China and as far as I understand they might not have the right material which causes the IR to be reflected instead of being absorbed.
I don't mind it locking really, aside from maybe a bigger battery consumage, since I often hear it locking itself while in my pocket.
No, my main problem is, with some of the covers, if I flip the front cover side to the back so I can hold the phone easily, it locks.
For example, the 2 I have on me, the leather one locks if I flip it over, the plastic one doesn't.
Really I'd like to disable the function alltogether, I prefer locking it myself together with the trusty 30s idle lock.
Thanks for your time!
tl;dr How do I disable auto locking when closing case cover.

That can be done only via software, which means modifying the kernel, etc. (Not worth it). In the mean time good luck.
