Easily Root Sprint & T-Mobile Note II without Increasing Flash Counter

The Galaxy Note line has been one of Samsung’s most successful. If you’re a proud owner of this powerhouse behemoth and want to easily root it without tripping its flash counter or switching to another ROM, you’re in luck, provided you’re using the T-Mobile or Sprint variant of the device.

XDA Recognized Contributor mrRobinson has taken the latest stock Odin-flashable factory images for the devices, and injected them with the su binary and SuperSU app, leaving everything else as is. The result is a pure stock ROM, with only root access added. Since nothing else is modified, the flash counter on your device should remain intact.

For those of you who also want a custom recovery, mrRobinson has also provided the method for getting TWRP on the device. Flashing that however will trip your flash counter.

More information, installation instructions, and download links can be found at T-Mobile Note II and the Sprint Note II forum threads.

T-Mobile Galaxy S6 Battery Woes

I've been using a T-Mobile Galaxy S6 since the device launched with T-mobile's service. However, over this past holiday weekend I knew I would be in an area without reliable T-Mobile service. So, I opened up T-Mobile's default "Device Unlock" app , pressed unlock, and placed my AT&T SIM card in the device. Everything seemed to be working fine: strong signal, great LTE, good voice calls - until day 3. On Sunday, my Galaxy S6 felt very hot to the touch and...

Earthquake Early Warning in Your Pocket

Probably all of us reading this have a smartphone in our pocket. For many of us, the smartphone has become our primary method of reading and writing e-mails, messaging, and browsing the web. Though proclamations that "smartphones have replaced the personal computer" typically fall on deaf ears, the statements aren't without merit. Indeed, smartphones have "replaced"—or more accurately, "displaced"—PC's in several areas that they have traditionally been dominant. But how many of you look into your pocket, or on your desk, and...
