You've probably seen or installed modified applications, be it a patched dialer for your resolution or a custom WhatsApp version with added features. How do developers do that, though?

Epic 4G Touch Forums Added
Well, it looks like we are just a few days away from the official release of the Samsung Galaxy S2 family of devices here in the US. In order to celebrate this, we have started being proactive and opened the first (of a few) forums which will serve as a home for the different Galaxy S2 variants. The first one up is the much anticipated behemoth, the Epic 4G Touch for Sprint. This device sports a larger screen at a 4.5″ and much of the same flavor that the other SGS2 variants have in terms of raw power. This will come equipped with WiMax, a beautiful Exynos processor clocked at 1.2 GHz, Android 2.3.4, 8MP camera with LED flash (thank you for this), and a few other goodies that will ensure that you get the most out of your Sprint experience.
So, if you were thinking about your next device and happen to be on Sprint, you should seriously consider this one. Reports from the European users of the SGS2 are nothing but good, so definitely something to consider. If you have one of these already and found anything interesting about the US versions, make sure that you share this with fellow members of the community.

In this sense, the internet is not very inventive, and the cycle of rehashed jokes re-surfaces on different products every year or so. This time it was the M9’s turn and it was...
