Samsung Galaxy Note Among the Latest to Get CyanogenMod9

The proverbial train that is CyanogenMod9 keeps on a rollin’ today as it hits another device. This time, it happens to be the Samsung Galaxy Note.

The giant phone gets its giant update to one of the most giant ROMs in the history of ROM making courtesy to XDA member Maui, who’s been kind enough to compile it for everyone toting the super sized phone.

As expected, it is an alpha build and there are some issues. They include:

Bluetooth is unstable. Don’t rely on it just yet
Battery Usage doesn’t work.
MTP Mode does not work. You need to push/pull files via adb
Camera doesn’t work. Will be that way until we can get our hands on a ICS leak for the Galaxy Note

Unlike most CM builds, it is noteworthy to notice that this particular build is flashed via Odin as opposed to ClockworkMod Recovery and if you want the Gapps, then you’ll need to push them via ADB. So if you’re uncomfortable with ADB and need your dose of Gapps, then it’s recommended to get instructions on how to flash Gapps before attempting to flash the ROM. Otherwise you could end up a very unhappy camper (with no Gapps *sadface*) Also, as with any experimental or unstable builds, there’s always the potential for permanent phone damage. Also, as Maui will tell you:

Flashing this rom WILL increase your binary counter and may/will void your warranty.

If that’s something that you happen to not be so worried about, then you can sate your CM9 cravings, grab instructions, download links and screenshots in the original thread.

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...

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
