Add The Missing SIP Stack To Your SGS 2

A great feature present in most Android devices is the fact that you have the ability of using them to make free phone calls either over 3G or WiFi. While the good people at Google had the consumer in mind when they developed the built in capabilities on Android, the carriers thought that it was not in their best interest to allow such a thing to be available. So, the Samsung Galaxy S 2 was stripped from its right to make and receive free phone calls. The stock SIP stack, which is the one responsible for VOIP did not come integrated in Samsung’s latest flagship. However, thanks to a guide written by XDA member mobilegalaxy there is now a fairly simple way to get the stock app back in your device. Having this will allow you to make and receive free calls over WiFi and 3G.

The guide is fairly easy to follow. However, please read it over before you start to avoid mistakes.

As most of you have probably already figured out by now the Samsung Galaxy S II, despite running Android 2.3.3, doesn’t have the native Android SIP Stack integrated.

Normally, all smartphones running Android 2.3.3 or higher come with a native SIP stack, allowing handset owners to register their SIP accounts to make and receive calls through VoIP.

DexPatcher: Patch Android APKs Using Java

You've probably seen or installed modified applications, be it a patched dialer for your resolution or a custom WhatsApp version with added features. How do developers do that, though?

M9: Is Throttling a Non-issue? Can’t We Trust Benchmarks?

When the first reports of the M9 overheating came to light, many forum users began a collective joke-round calling the phone a popcorn machine, a grill, and other unoriginal remarks that we’ve seen with every device that presents sign of overheating, from gaming consoles to graphics cards. In this sense, the internet is not very inventive, and the cycle of rehashed jokes re-surfaces on different products every year or so. This time it was the M9’s turn and it was...
