Enable Multi Window For Apps on Galaxy Note 10.1 With CSC

Previously, we brought you news about the CSC file on the Galaxy Note. In a way, it is similar to the build.prop in that it can be used to enable and disable certain features and settings. As it turns out, there may be a way to enable the popular multi window feature on the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1.

XDA Forum Member xperiacle began a thread with an idea that altering a certain part of the CSC file can allow multi window support for apps that don’t usually have it. This would mean that users can make a few simple CSC edits and have their apps work without any mods required. As xperiacle explains:

I came across a smali code fragment that checks for multiwindow supported apps in CSC file as well as excluded apps so I tried to investigate further and found out that you can actually add multiwindow support for almost any app by just adding it’s package name in feature.xml or other.xml in /system/csc folder.

Users have been trying this out and experimenting with similar alternatives. So far, the results have been mixed. However, a few have finally managed to get the ball rolling. It’s slow going, but a few have managed to get Dropbox working as a multi window app without altering the Dropbox APK itself.

To see more and stay apprised of the latest updates, please visit the original thread. Just make sure that once you start modifying your own CSC that you keep a backup in case something goes awry. In fact, it may be a good time to go about making a Nandroid of your /system partition for easy recovery.

Arrow Launcher: Good Effort Without Direction

Microsoft’s Android expansion has been well received on the productivity front, but not so much in terms of original applications. While their Office suite managed to bring some of the document-editing excellence to mobile, attempts at entering one’s interface through apps like Picturesque proved to be pointless failures. But even then, some apps like Hyperlapse redeem the computing giant through great quality. Microsoft seems to be approaching Android with brute, misdirected development and plenty of unorganized output, and if they want...
