Epic Touch 4G Sources Released – Good Move, Samsung!

Well, we truly gotta give it to Samsung this time as they seem to be making a turn for the better and trying to get close to developers at the same time. XDA member Korey_Nicholson just informed us that apparently the Epic 4G Touch did not get released by itself. It looks like the kernel sources (D710) are also available for download in the Samsung website. So, for all of you who were impatiently waiting to start developing custom work on this brand new device, now is your chance. Also, this goes to show all the skeptics in the crowd that even large sized companies can have their good days as well.

In any case, you will be able to download, tweak, compile, rinse, and repeat to your heart’s content. So, what are you waiting for? Go for it and if you happen to create something good, make sure that you share it with the rest of the community.

Scroll down to find D710 and have fun building those kernels!

You can find more information in the original thread.

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...
