Tablet UI Mod Available for Epic 4G Touch

Getting a tablet UI to work on an Android phone is pretty cool. Not only is it a breathe of fresh air from the typical Android phone experience, but it looks cool and is actually functional on larger phones once you get used to it. In fact, whenever an AOSP-based ROM hits a device, getting tablet UI on it seems to be on the high priority list of things to get working since it’s slowly becoming popular with end users. Well for those running certain AOKP builds, getting tablet UI is as simple as flashing a mod, and the mod is expected to be ported to a number of other devices.

The port for the Samsung Epic 4G Touch has now arrived thanks to XDA Senior Member rsalinas1. As it’s still cumbersome trying to flash anything Ice Cream Sandwich on the Epic Touch, users should definitely take care to follow the installation instructions carefully—this is no ordinary flash-via-recovery modification. Users will have to flash the EL26 kernel in order to even get the proper kernel and recovery on their devices, flash the AOKP ROM, flash the GAPPS, and then flash the mod all in one shot. In other words, in order to get this mod on your phone, you’re going to have to install the entire ROM over again—for now, at least. The modification itself does work, however, and gives users the tablet experience they’re looking for. Even the software buttons are included in this modification.

If you’re looking to get some tablet UI goodness, check out the first link at the top. For those with the Epic Touch, you can find your device specific mod in rsalinas1’s thread.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Drop Test

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are already proving to be amongst the head turners of 2015. From favoring their inhouse Exynos 7 SoC over the Snapdragon 810 SoC (which ended up causing issues to its main rival); to ditching the removable battery and micro sd card slot in favor of a more "premium" device, the flagship duo have a lot going on for them at this stage. Regarding the premium redesign which replaced plastic with metal and glass,...
