    Default Cyanogen and the S Pen

    So I'm rooted with cyanogen on my Sprint Note 2 and loving it so far! This may be a common question but I haven't seen many answers however. One of the reasons I enjoyed my Note was the S Pen and it doesn't really have much functionality anymore than any run of the mill stylus. Is there any way to regain some of the lost features caused by going to Cyanogen? I know it wouldn't be possible to get full on S Pen again, especially pressure sensitivity but what about launching note apps with removal of the pen? I use Evernote handwriting but it definitely lacks what came with the standard room.

    THANKS!

    The S Pen is a Samsung signed feature. To my knowledge, there is no way to have that and an AOSP ROM at the same time. You would need a custom ROM based upon TouchWiz.

    Yes, I confirm. You need a rooted, custom ROM based on a TouchWiz ROM

    I thought there was a S pen addon for the cyanogen mod. I'm not sure what it is, maybe the xda forums. If I come across it, I will let you know.

    Im curious if the spen addon worked for you. I have the Cynagon mod for the kitkat and the app didn't do much for me.

    I have the DN3 rom and really like it. It has all the S Pen features.

    I am on a 4.2 rom, so I will have to get to the 4.3 so I can upgrade. Thanks for all the links, I appreciate it.
