Enable Hidden Options on the Galaxy Note II with a CSC Editor

If you have a Samsung device, you’ve undoubtedly heard of CSC files before. For the uninitiated, CSC editors on various Samsung devices allow users to modify various hidden settings and enable certain hidden features. By modifying these files, you can do things such as disable the camera shutter, enable infinite scroll on the launcher, change the number of contacts that can be merged, make the enter key send a text message, and much, much more.

Expanding on previous CSC editors we’ve seen, XDA Senior Member nagasgura presents Note 2 Hidden Settings, a new CSC editor that adds many niceties such as automatic backups, a cleaner Holo-themed interface, and more. Note 2 Hidden Settings even is able to list modifications made manually or by other applications. And if you’d like to restore the values to their default settings, you can do so at the touch of a button.

If you’re unwilling to take the plunge in an alternate ROM and would like to add some features to your Note II’s stock firmware, head over to the original thread to get started. Obviously, you must be rooted to get started, but who isn’t nowadays?

Dual Boot on Android: A Power User’s Holy Grail?

Many of you probably dual-boot your personal computers, be it to run Linux alongside Windows or because you have a Mac and hate OS X. On a computer platform, the process can be a life-saver for a variety of reasons, particularly software compatibility/integration. It’s not rare to see computer programmers with Linux partitions or Mac gamers that use bootcamp for their videogames.
