T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Note Acquires Root, Return to Stock, and Much More
The T-Mobile Galaxy Note is an enigma in the Android world. It was introduced to T-Mobile relatively recently, but was then suddenly discontinued, perhaps because of the Galaxy Note 2 unveiling. Why sell last year’s model when this year’s model is right around corner, right? Even so, at least a few people got their hands on the T-Mobile Galaxy Note, and those people need development love too.
With that in mind, XDA Senior Member tomin.fhl has posted up a thread on XDA that contains a lot of goodies for those who managed to get their hands on the T-Mo Note before it was removed from shelves. Not only does it contain the root method, but also a method for returning to stock as well as custom recoveries, modems, and other miscellaneous guides. Using this thread, users can get from stock to rooted and back to stock safely and everything in between.
The methods are pretty standard for Samsung devices—users download the proper root files and flash them via Odin. Nothing too difficult or out of the ordinary. Additionally, tomin.fhl has posted personal test results for modems, so users can pick out the one they want with a little more information. There is even a short guide for booting ROMs from the AT&T variant.
For more info, check out the original thread.

This news is no joke though, as Google has pushed the shiny red button to send out over-the-air updates to supported devices. Well, sort of, as only a few of available Nexus devices got updates to Android 5.1. Here's a list of OTAs that can be downloaded and flashed by stock recoveries. You can find guides on how to revert...
Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors. I speak, of course, about April Fools Day. As has become their custom, Google launched lighthearted "pranks" for each of their various services (with other tech sites and vendors following suit), and we have done our best to round up the humorous products and tweaks surfacing thus far....
