After upgrading to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean on my Samsung Galaxy S II, how can I remove the home button double tap feature that opens Vlingo/Voice Command? I absolutely hate it and it causes inexplainable frustration with the ridiculous delay of hitting the home button which in turn causes me to impatiently hit it again which then brings up the stupid program and starts talking to me (even in Silent mode which is another problem). I don't care if I can get rid of the program or not; I just want to disable the home double tap feature completely.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

The problem is that I don't have S Voice on the Galaxy S2. It still has Voice Command by Vlingo and I can't find such an option in this program.

This was annoying me, too. And I haven't found a way to disable this.
However, I was able to disable the voice prompt, so at least when I double-tap the home key and Voice Command starts up, it no longer says "What would you like to do?"
In Voice Talk, tap Menu, Settings, scroll down and select "Voice talk settings" at the bottom, and scroll down to "Speak prompts" and de-select that option. I also de-selected "Wake-up command" and other auto-launch features since I never use Voice Talk.

I upgraded my SII to JellyBean the other day and had the same issue. So freaking annoying!!!
Anyway, this is what I did and it worked for me:
1. Go to Settings > Applications Manager > scroll across to 'All' tab
2. Go into the 'Voice Command' application and disable.
3. Go into the 'Google Search' application and disable.
If you dont do step three, Google voice dialer would appear which is just as annoying as the Vlingo/Voice Command.
Hopefully this helps
