sPen without TW

view story

http://forum.xda-developers.com – I don't have a Note 2 but am considering. Can't do the Touchwiz thing so I'm wondering the functionality of the sPen without it. Simple question: I realize all the TW specific features will be lost but can the sPen be used anywhere in Non-TW roms where one would use their finger? ie Will it perform like an old stylus from Windows Mobile device days? So purely via resistive use and not software driven. This would be plenty enough for me. But if it's completely crippled then I may have to rethink. Thanks for any response! (HowTos)
