First Official Galaxy Note II N7100 Firmwares Now Online

There’s no disputing the fact that the Samsung Galaxy Note II is a beast. This thing is gigantic in every respect. Whether it’s screen size, internal storage, or RAM; there isn’t another device out there that measures up. That also appears to extend to its official firmwares, which weigh in at a whopping 1043 MB. How do I know this? Well because XDA Recognized Developer Faryaab was kind enough to very recently update his official firmware thread for the Note II with a link to the European 4.1.1-based ROM.

This particular update seems to be generating a fair bit of excitement, as it brings the “Multi Window” feature that had been been previously unavailable to some device owners out of the box. Of course you don’t need to actually own the device to download this and pick it apart. Perhaps this rather nifty feature may even make its way to other Samsung devices (i9100 first please, nudge nudge, wink wink…). There are likely plenty of other things worth checking out in there as well. At least one would hope so in a ROM that size.

If you are looking to update to this latest firmware, this can be flashed via Odin. You should be aware that if you are from a region outside of Europe, this will alter your CSC. Head on over to the stock firmware thread to get started.

Multi Boot: The Fall of Nandroid?

Ever since custom recoveries and roms became popular, nandroid backups have been the fall back method for all android enthusiasts, irrespective of their confidence levels. They allow easy backup and restore in case things go wrong, which happens invariably when a modification is being tested. With that being said, how relevant are Nandroid Backups to this day? Back in 2011, when the world of Android was being awed by the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S2, a little modification made its appearance...

HTC One M8 Owners: Upgrade to the M9, or Skip?

While HTC's latest flagship brings many new features, the aesthetic design of the device remains largely untouched in comparison to its predecessor.
