Samsung Galaxy Mini Hack Allows Users to Choose Their Internal Memory

Some older devices, and even some current low to mid range devices can have a problem with internal storage. Between all the great Android apps out there, music, videos, pictures and other miscellany, sometimes storage can be problem when you didn’t have much to begin with.

This is a problem that XDA Member Doc_cheilvenerdi.org is looking to fix with a hack that will allow users of the Samsung Galaxy Mini to manually adjust the internal memory of their device.

The aim of the modification is to increase the internal memory of the Galaxy Mini so users can put more things on it. The process is pretty simple and involves flashing a few files over Odin. There are a few prerequisites as well. They include:

Stock Firmware installed on the Phone (custom ROMS not supported …They don’t need to!)
A microSD with two primary formatted partitions inside (the former ‘to FAT32′ and the latter ‘to EXT4′ filesystems)
Ready to Flash to your Galaxy Next via Odin

From there, it’s just downloading a few files and following the method and you’re on your way to more data on your Galaxy Mini.

For further instructions, the download links and screen shots; you can find all that and more in the original thread. Remember, as always, to make a backup before flashing anything. It’s just a smart move.

New AOSP Branch Details Potential Build System Upgrades?

While there are frequent unexplained changes and pushes to Google's AOSP repositories, an interesting-looking new branch has been pushed out recently, called "master-soong". Taking a look at the changes made to the manifest repository (which is used to specify the repositories to be downloaded when building Android), it appears there are some new repositories making an appearance. Of note here are new prebuilt repositories for Go, and Ninja. Go is a programming language, created by Google, which compiles to produce...

Send Links to Any Nearby Device with CaastMe

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...
