Give Your Samsung Continuum the Gift of Leaked Froyo!
While the Samsung Continuum is capable of some quite impressive feats that no other Android phone can do, one thing it cannot do is upgrade past Android 2.1 Eclair. Well, that was true until XDA forum member imnuts provided us with the leaked Android 2.2 Froyo build that Verizon and Samsung have yet to share with us.
Alleviating the pains of the seemingly forgotten stepchild in the Galaxy S family, the EC03 update improves upon the previous DL17 update substantially by ushering in the JIT compiler among other notable changes. Currently, there are no customized kernels to go with this release, but you can be sure it won’t be too long before something pops up on XDA.
Here is the update that everyone has been waiting for. At the moment, I’m only providing the modem, and rooted, stock, deodexed version of the ROM. There will be a cleaned up version to go along with all of this in due time, but we’re currently working out some problems with it. I would like to note that despite this being the Froyo update, it is not without its own set of problems, and odds are you may never see another update outside of this from anywhere. However, the benefits of getting Froyo will outweigh the problems with it for most people, so have at it.
You will need a few things to get this, first, the downloads list here will be needed (obviously). You’ll also need to have CWM setup and know how to use Odin. Heimdall will also work for those of you not on Windows, but I’m not providing any instructions for flashing using Heimdall. Also note that you will want to wipe data or perform a factory reset before booting into Froyo to avoid any problems. While you may get away with not doing it, you could end up with several problems, so my recommendation is to wipe data. Also, you can flash the ROM first, or flash the modem first, which ever you want to do. There isn’t really a required order for it, as long as you do both parts.

We've received mixed reports about switching to ART but it seems that the majority of users who make the jump see some type of improvement. But just how noticeable is this improvement in app performance? Let us know if switching to ART has brought noticeable changes to your device's performance.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are already proving to be amongst the head turners of 2015. From favoring their inhouse Exynos 7 SoC over the Snapdragon 810 SoC (which ended up causing issues to its main rival); to ditching the removable battery and micro sd card slot in favor of a more "premium" device, the flagship duo have a lot going on for them at this stage. Regarding the premium redesign which replaced plastic with metal and glass,...
