Ice Cream Sandwich Leak for Epic 4g Touch Officially Booting

Samsung has a history with Sprint phones and updates to new versions of Android. Just ask the owners of the original Samsung Epic 4g how long it takes to get a new version of Android.

With the sequel, the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4g Touch, Samsung seems to have learned their lesson and appear to be working quite fervently on getting Ice Cream Sandwich to its entire Galaxy S II line up. While nothing official has come through the channels yet, XDA Recognized Developer shabbypenguin, also of the Android Creative Syndicate, has gotten a hold of a leak dubbed FB09. FB09 has a special quality about it as it is the first evidence of Ice Cream Sandwich for the Sprint phone.

Early attempts were rough, as the ROM was not bootable. However, shabbypenguin was able to fix those bugs and now users can check out a rough draft of what’s to come for the Epic Touch. Thus far, it’s been observed that the MMS app seems a little off and the Samsung Keyboard will force close. There are likely to be other bugs, as this is an early build, but at least users can check it out.

For download links, information and a nifty how-to install video from Android Creative Syndicate guru qbking77, you can find all that and more in their thread over at the Android Creative Syndicate forums. As always, perform a backup before attempting to install, just in case something goes wrong.

Once you get past the curved displays and wraparound Gorilla Glass 4, the most striking feature on these slabs is the...

The Battery Behind the Samsung S6 and S6 Edge

Samsung has stated that with the new S6 and S6 Edge you will "not have to worry about battery life again" with their new faster charging. Just ten minutes of charging will allow for four hours of basic usage and a fully charged device should last you for 13 hours of video viewing. During the unpacked event, Gregory Wade said, “we didn't want to have a built-in battery until we were absolutely sure users would be comfortable.” Well, it appears...
