Hidden Menu Enabler for the Verizon Galaxy Note II
Previously, we posted about hidden menus on Samsung Galaxy devices. These menus can provide a number of useful functions and can actually help solve problems or make processes easier. In previous instances, the hidden menus have been used to restore bricks. There is now a tool for the Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note II that helps get to those hidden menus a little easier.
XDA Elite Recognized Developer AdamOutler repackaged the tool with CASUAL. It originally came from the Galaxy Note 2 IRC channel, and it’s quite simple to use. Enable USB Debugging on the phone, plug the device into your computer, click the “Do it” button in CASUAL, and enable the hidden menus on the phone. From there, you’ll have access to the following menus:
LTE Mode Menu
##Phone Util# Menu
While the hidden menus probably won’t be helpful to an average user, they often come in handy for various troubleshooting purposes or for finding more info about your device. The tool itself is a handy and quick way to get there, and is definitely work checking out.
For more details, check out the original thread.

Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.
