Owners of the Verizon variant of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet will no longer feel left out, thanks to the unlock package that XDA Elite Recognized Developer AdamOutler posted late Friday night. Although he takes issue with the word ‘unlock,’ preferring to call it a ‘jailbreak’ because that term is exempted by the DMCA.

The process couldn’t be easier thanks to Adam’s CASUAL software. I’m sure you’ve heard of it before since it’s been features on XDA TV and several Portal posts. The software provides a GUI for scripts that use the Android Developer Bridge (ADB) and it works on Linux, Mac, and Windows. The power of CASUAL is well represent. . . READ ON »

Android-Devices

It used to be the case that whenever you wanted to use ADB or FastBoot with a device, you were required to install a specific driver for each device. For anyone regularly flashing several devices or developers who test on numerous different phones and tablets, this could prove to be something of an inconvenience, especially when setting up for the first time and having to hunt around in a dingy corner of an OEM website looking for the correct driver. Thankfully, things are somewhat simpler nowadays thanks to several different solutions to this old issue.

CASUAL for Verizon Galaxy Note II Receives Major Update

verizon-galaxy-note-2-grey1

Verizon Galaxy Note II owners may remember our previous article on the work of XDA Elite Recognized Developer AdamOutler and Recognized Developer Ralekdev, which used CASUAL to automatically unlock, root, and install a custom recovery on the device. While the previous iteration was pretty much completely automated when run on Linux, running the tool on Windows meant that some users were required to finish off the process manually using ODIN. This has been addressed, and the process is now completely automated for Windows users and also greatly improved for Mac users.

If you aren’t familiar with CASUAL, it stands for Cross-platform ADB Scripting, Universal Android Loader. The CASUAL scr. . . READ ON »

First, it was unlocked by XDA Elite Recognized Developer AdamOutler. A few months later, Verizon pulled a slick one and locked it back up. Now, there is a new way to unlock the Verizon bootloader.

XDA Recognized Developer Ralekdev discovered the exploit while Adam helped deploy it. Much the same as the first time around. It’s an entirely new exploit designed to take care of Verizon’s latest . . . READ ON »
