Enable Secret Features Using the Galaxy Note II CSC File

A while back, we brought you news that users and developers were taking a more serious look at the CSC file on the Galaxy Note 2. In case you’ve forgotten, the CSC file is a lot like a build.prop. It contains a number of values and lines that can be altered with varying results. Before, it was experimenting to see what could be done with it. Now, some practical tweaks have been found.

XDA Senior Member kkoolpatz released a list of settings you can change in the CSC file to uncover hidden features for the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. This is meant for the International version, but many of these could work on the US variants as well, given the nearly identical hardware. Here is a brief list of some features that have been uncovered:

Enter Key = New Line in stock sms // Only if not supported already
Enable sub Symbols on Stock Samsung keyboard
Dialer search matches numbers in contacts and call logs along with contacts
No Limits on joining contacts together.
Add exit menu to stock web browser
Add shutter sound on/off menu to stock camera app
Stock browser requests Desktop site by default

None of these are game changers, but a few of them could be pretty useful. The desktop site always requested is especially nice for the Galaxy Note 2, as the screen is big enough to surf most full sites comfortably. There is still a lot of work going on with the CSC file, and kkoolpatz has invited anyone to contribute what they find as well.

For all the details, check out the original thread.

Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
