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...
AT&T Skyrocket Fix For Galaxy Note Radio Woes
While many members come to XDA to flash the latest and greatest ROMs and kernels, and perhaps find a cool mod or theme, there are some members who enjoy living on the bleeding edge of development who flash just about anything from experimental leaks to radios from other devices. Of course, keeping up with all this development work means dealing with some unscheduled issues and bugs as well. While no one likes bugs, they’re kind of like puberty—eventually, it happens to everyone.
Of course, with every bug comes a fix and for those on the AT&T Samsung Skyrocket who have experimented with the a Samsung Galaxy Note radios, you may have run into a few problems that can now be fixed using not one, but three methods in a thread posted by XDA Senior Member icenight89.
The first method runs the user through manually replacing a file that would normally fix the problems. It isn’t very difficult, and really only requires users to flash back to Android 2.3.5 and a root file explorer to use, and then flashing an ICS ROM to complete. The second method runs users through a computer-connected method where ADB is used to push the proper file—called keystr—back onto the device. The third method is for when 1 and 2 don’t work, and comes in the form of a flashable update.zip file that puts the file back for you. In all instances, however, the first step is removing the Galaxy Note radio, and getting back onto the firmware intended for the Skyrocket. Apparently, the radio for the Galaxy Note has a tendency to do all sorts of things to the Skyrocket, such bypassing the lock screen and /efs corruption.

The Pebble Time just recently ended their Kickstarter with over 4000% of their initial request which was just $500,000. This level of funding is unprecedented for Kickstarter and it passed $1 million in less than an hour bringing with it a level of fame unavailable to many other OEMs. Produced by the Pebble Technology Corporation (PTC), the Pebble Watch has...
