Enable Secret Features Using the Galaxy Note II CSC File
Posted December 22, 2012 at 12:00 am by Former Writer
A while back, we brought you news that users and developers were taking a more serious look at the CSC file on the Galaxy Note 2. In case you’ve forgotten, the CSC file is a lot like a build.prop. It contains a number of values and lines that can be altered with varying results. Before, it was experimenting to see what could be done with it. Now, some practical tweaks have been found.
XDA Senior Member kkoolpatz released a list of settings you can change in the CSC file to uncover hidden features for the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. This is meant for the International version, but many of these could work on the US variants as well, given the nearly identical hardware. Here is a brief list of some features that have been uncovered:
Enter Key = New Line in stock sms // Only if not supported already
Enable sub Symbols on Stock Samsung keyboard
Dialer search matches numbers in contacts and call logs along with contacts
No Limits on joining contacts together.
Add exit menu to stock web browser
Add shutter sound on/off menu to stock camera app
Stock browser requests Desktop site by default
None of these are game changers, but a few of them could be pretty useful. The desktop site always requested is especially nice for the Galaxy Note 2, as the screen is big enough to surf most full sites comfortably. There is still a lot of work going on with the CSC file, and kkoolpatz has invited anyone to contribute what they find as well.
For all the details, check out the original thread.
