Phone Mods Section of Galaxy Nexus Toolkit Released Independently

Most users of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus have heard of the Galaxy Nexus Toolkit. With a variety of features like auto-installation of Samsung drivers, and backing up and restoring data down to even dumping logs to your desktop, the Toolkit brings a lot of functionality and help to users. With the Toolkit at version 6.0 now, the Toolkit has donned many additional features thanks to the work of XDA Recognized Developer and Senior Moderator mskip.

With the update, mskip has also spun off one part of the toolkit for standalone use. Instead of dealing with computer to phone communication and functionality, the Phone Mods Section deals specifically with features, settings and modifications of just the Galaxy Nexus itself.

This is all part of the Galaxy Nexus ToolKit but I have made a new Thread for people who may not have noticed it, people who didnt need the ToolKit but may find some of the Mods useful or just people who want to talk about the Phone Mods specifically.

FUNCTIONS OF THE PHONE MODS SECTION V1.6 [GSM + LTE][23RD APRIL 2012]

  • Change the Screen Density (DPI)
  • CWM Recovery, Only 1 No in the Confirmation Screen
  • Camera Sounds (Disable/Enable Camera Shutter, Video Camera Shutter, Focus)
  • Camera Enhancements (Increase Video Bitrate, Sound Bitrate, Photo Quality)
  • Change WiFi Scan Interval (Time between scanning for new Wifi Access Points)
  • Startup Boot Animation Screen (Disable/Enable which affects Boot Time)
  • Screen Colour Control (Change Gamma Offset and Colour Multiplier)

As noted in the instructions, users will have to have an insecure boot image in order to use most of these modifications. Worry not, however, as it’s part of the original Toolkit, so it’s a matter of switching over a couple of menus to get started.

For more information on the Galaxy Nexus Toolkit and its new Phones Mod spin off, you can hit up the Galaxy Nexus Toolkit thread or the Phone Mods thread.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
