There are some excellent ‘AAA’ tier games by huge development houses that offer fun, and, most of the time, in-app purchases. There is no doubt that some of these games are great. However, at XDA we like to keep an eye on the little guy. Some of the more successful Android developers have started out as the little guy. Today we celebrate another simple game developed by an XDA member. XDA Senior Member Rolf Smit offers up a 2D sandbox...
JIG Values for All SGS Devices (Except Tab)
As of lately, we have been publishing a few articles regarding hardware level hacking and modding, particularly for the Samsung Galaxy S and SGS2 device families. In fact, there was an article not too long ago that described a home made JTAG rig for aimed for the Samsung Captivate. However, even with all of this knowledge and advances, it is still quite difficult to come up with solutions to recover from bricks as the information needed like pin outs and resistor values is not something that is commonly or easily found on the internet. Moreover, as most of this information is sometimes proprietary, several manufacturers will not readily release it to the public. It looks like XDA member AdamOutler has been able to get his hands on a datasheet for the FSA9280. This basically contains all of the aforementioned resistor values for about 90% of all current Samsung Galaxy devices (with the exception of the Galaxy Tabs). This should help tremendously in the race to revive devices that have been killed in the process of trying to follow a path to greatness.
If you believe that this is useful information that you can use and maybe help out with, please leave your comments for the dev.
I’ve found the datasheet for the FSA9280 online today. So, now I can post about it.
You can find more information in the original thread.
