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.

Feel like this tickles your fancy? Continue on to the original thread to get started!

T-Mobile Galaxy S6 Battery Woes

I've been using a T-Mobile Galaxy S6 since the device launched with T-mobile's service. However, over this past holiday weekend I knew I would be in an area without reliable T-Mobile service. So, I opened up T-Mobile's default "Device Unlock" app , pressed unlock, and placed my AT&T SIM card in the device. Everything seemed to be working fine: strong signal, great LTE, good voice calls - until day 3. On Sunday, my Galaxy S6 felt very hot to the touch and...

Earthquake Early Warning in Your Pocket

Probably all of us reading this have a smartphone in our pocket. For many of us, the smartphone has become our primary method of reading and writing e-mails, messaging, and browsing the web. Though proclamations that "smartphones have replaced the personal computer" typically fall on deaf ears, the statements aren't without merit. Indeed, smartphones have "replaced"—or more accurately, "displaced"—PC's in several areas that they have traditionally been dominant. But how many of you look into your pocket, or on your desk, and...
