FC15 Spotted for the Epic 4G Touch, Stock Rooted ROM Already Available [Update: Now FC18]

Update: kc_exactly has now updated his thread to house Calkulin‘s stock, rooted FC18 update. All signs point to this being very close to official release!

Owners of the Samsung Epic 4G Touch have been lucky lately. First the bloat removal tool provided by XDA Senior Member Calkulin showed up, seamlessly doing it’s job for both Gingerbread and Ice Cream Sandwich ROMs. The very same week Calkulin delivered another surprise in the form of the leaked FC14 update for the phone. Lucky, indeed. In an impressively quick follow-up, XDA Senior Member kc_exactly has already posted the newest update for the device, thanking XDA Senior Member qbking77 for his help finding the update.

If you’d like to give it a test drive, Calkulin has again provided the FC15 update as a rooted ROM with busybox in both odexed and de-odexed format and the necessary FC15 modem in a flashable zip. Just like the F14 update, a wipe and data format is necessary, and both the modem and the update zip must be flashed in the same ClockworkMod session since the recovery partition will be wiped. You will no longer have CWM after applying the update.

As usual, make a backup of your device before attempting anything. His work can be found in his ROM thread. In addition, kc_exactly provides links to an Odin version of a rooted FC15 system and a tar of the stock FC15 update in his compilation thread. Take it for a spin and report your findings!

The beginning of April is dominated by April Fools. There are jokes and pranks everywhere, which are meant to fool people.

Well, sort of, as only a few of available Nexus devices got updates to Android 5.1. Here's a list of OTAs that can be downloaded and flashed by stock recoveries.

Google’s Prank Roundup for April Fools 2015 [Updated]

Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors. I speak, of course, about April Fools Day. As has become their custom, Google launched lighthearted "pranks" for each of their various services (with other tech sites and vendors following suit), and we have done our best to round up the humorous products and tweaks surfacing thus far....
