Galaxy Note II Multi-Window Mod Ported to Galaxy S II

Since it was released, the Galaxy Note II multi-window mod has been ported to pretty much every Galaxy Note II. However, a feature that awesome shouldn’t be restricted to just the Note II. The multi-window mod is now available for the Samsung Galaxy S II.

XDA Senior Member mythtrandyr has ported the multi-window functionality to the Galaxy S II. Users can get a hold of the mod in two ways. As per the norm, there is the clean way and the dirty way. The dirty way involves decompiling the SecSettings.apk, the service.jar and android.policy.jar files and applying the appropriate mods. There are quite a few mods to make so be sure to follow all the insructions.

The easy is a simple flash. Users will have to be running a deodexed ROM based on XXLSJ, which is Android 4.1.2. There are also some additional features, including:

- 4 icons shortcut on lockscreen
– ripple lockscreen
– Skip songs with volume rocker (thanks to Mirko ddd )
– No homebutton lag (thanks to Mirko ddd)
– 4-Way Reboot (thanks to khavitahra)

Simply flash in recovery with the customary cache and Dalvik wipes to get it running. Once completed, you’ll have the full multi-window functionality, and you can add as many apps as you’d like.

For more info, check out either the hands-on or the easy method.

[Thanks to ::indie:: for the tip!]

Xiaomi Finally Releases Kernel Sources

If you are familiar with Xiaomi, you might have heard that they are not the most compliant when it comes to the General Public License that makes the core of Android open to us. The terms of the GPLv2 state that since the Android kernel is based on the Linux kernel, which is licensed under GPL,v2 Android has to be open-source for everyone to study or modify, and those that modify the Android kernel have to make their sources immediately available for...
