Nexus 7 Tablet UI Patch Ported To AT&T Galaxy Note CM10

Even though the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is right around the corner, users are still making sure that the development stays active for the first one. Now, the AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note has a UI patch that’ll give the Note full fledged tablet UI. Given that it’s half tablet, half phone already; having a full tablet UI could be very functional for some.

The patch may seem familiar to some, as it’s the same patch that Nexus 7 owners used to give their tablets a traditional tablet UI. It was ported to the AT&T Note by XDA Forum Member NYConex, and it’s pretty easy to apply.

Users must first edit their build.prop and set the DPI to 213. Then, it’s a matter of downloading the UI patch and flashing it in recovery. Users have reported that it works pretty well, but there are still a few bugs that need worked out. There’s nothing wrong that can be considered major, but some applications—such as Contacts—are a little rough around the edges and some applications need re-sizing. Additionally, this patch is only compatible with CyanogenMod 10 for right now, although attempts are being made to make it work with AOKP as well.
