Galaxy Note II Gets CWM, Sets Pace for Development

The Samsung Galaxy Note II is one of the most anticipated phones of the year. As the next successor in the popular “phablet” line of Note devices, its massive form is only matched by its powerful specs. It has a quad core Exynos processor and 2 GB of RAM that will surely be taken advantage of in every way possible upon its heralded release. The pace for development has already been set, thanks to XDA Forum Member Chenglu, as CWM Recovery version 6.0.1.4 is now available for the N7100 and i317 versions.

That’s right. The device hasn’t even been released, and a developer here on XDA has already managed to load a custom recovery. One can only imagine the amazing works in store for this device as root and custom recovery have already been accomplished. Of course as of the moment, this will trigger the flash counter and must be flashed through ODIN, but if you’re looking for that instant fix the moment you buy your phone, you’ll know where to look.

So head on over to the original thread and give this beast a spin (when you get your device of course).

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
