Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too.

Galaxy Note II MultiTool Brings Plethora of Tweaking Options
If you’ve ever longed for a multipurpose toolkit that does it all on the Samsung Galaxy Note II, a new offering from XDA Recognized Contributor dr.ketan may be exactly what you’re after. OK, so the toolkit won’t do everything, but it should be enough to get most new users started and well on their journey towards device customization.
The toolkit comes in the form of an AROMA installer package. As you would expect, you run the toolkit by “flashing” it from your custom recovery as you would flash any other update. Once in the utility, there is a menu of 17 functions, with over 300 possible choices available.
Currently, the toolkit allows you to root the device, install busybox, backup and restore your EFS partition, change your recovery/kernel/modem, backup and restore system apps and framework, remove bloatware, bypass lock screen security, clean your device, and more. And within each general category, there are various selections to make. For example, when choosing to flash a recovery, a selection of different recovery options are available. The same goes for kernels, and so on.
There are versions for both the N7100 and N7105, so be sure to pick the right one for your model. To get started, head over to the appropriate thread for your device below:

While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
