Carbon Tweaks Gives International Note Users Total Tweak Control

Sometimes, applying tweaks to an Android device can be a pain. With a plethora of installation methods from flashing via recovery and manual build.prop editing to activating scripts via ADB or the Terminal Emulator, finding a tweak and using it can be cumbersome for some. Additionally, once you start going on the admittedly addictive frenzy of putting scripts, tweaks and mods on your device, it’s hard to remember which ones you even installed sometimes. For those carrying the International Galaxy Note, there’s an app looking to solve all of these problems and more.

Carbon Tweaks by XDA Forum Member carbonassassin looks to fix this by giving users the ability to pick and choose which tweaks, script, and mods to apply to their phones, and giving users the option to remove them as well. It also carries a few other fun options such as backing up your init.d so users can save configurations they like, and it includes some popular mods such as Ultimate RAM Manager and the Dolby Sound Library. There are only a couple of issues, but they don’t have anything to do with performance. The browser will open to download the various tweaks for users and the shout outs list isn’t updated. The shout outs list will be updated with the next version, though, so those seeking credit need only be patient.

For more info, head over to original thread to get your tweak on.

While the official name for the latest iteration of Android has yet to be revealed, the code name used internally by Google has been seen to be Macadamia Nut Cookie (MNC). This will almost certainly not be the final name for the release with rumors so far leaning towards milkshake, much like Key Lime Pie became Kit Kat and Lemon Meringue Pie became Lollipop. The acronym MNC has now also started to appear in several locations in AOSP, just look out...

Sunday Debate: Are Smaller Bezels Better or Worth It?

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience.   With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
