Get Started Modding Your Samsung Galaxy Mega

The Samsung Galaxy Mega is the less well known sibling of the OEM’s popular Galaxy Note lineup. Announced back in April of last year, there are two main variants of the phablet, the GT-I920x with a 6.3″ screen, and the GT-I915x with a more modest 5.8″ screen—not far from the Note 3. Nevertheless, it’s a device that definitely has its appeals, such as dual-SIM support with the GT-I9152 variant, powerful specs, and wireless charging, a feature we just don’t see being adopted as much as we would like.

If you own one of these devices and would like to make a start in the modding world, XDA Forum Member sitifire wrote a useful tutorial on modding various aspects of the SystemUI on your Galaxy Mega. Sitfire confesses to also being a beginner in the modding world, and his affinity with fellow beginners shines through in the tutorial in how it’s written and structured. The guide is easy to follow, has plenty of example code, and gets straight to the point. The modifications taught are relatively simple, and although they may be achieved through existing mods, beginners will be able to get an insight into the behind the scenes of such mods.

If you would like to start laying down the foundations of your modding journey on your Galaxy Mega, be sure to check out the tutorial at its original thread for more information. Also please note that while this guide is intended for the GT-I9152, most of the tweaks can be adapted to the I920x with minor modifications.

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...
