Running scripts on Android phones is one of those essential experiences that any rooted user should have in his arsenal. With the proper script, users can see improved battery life, less lag, more Play Store compatibility, and a plethora of other tweaks that can make any Android phone run just a little bit nicer. Many users run into the issue of not knowing how to install a script properly. In many cases, there’s a flashable update.zip that does the work for you, but still leaves a lot of questions. One of which is asking if the script is actually running, and if it actually started on boot.

When a new iteration of Android starts hitting a device, it rarely just rolls out to the device on OTA day. There are leaks, pre-releases, and all sorts of mayhem that can fall down on a development community depending on how open—or irresponsible, depending on how you look at it—an OEM is. In some cases, there are two or three leaks, followed by the official release. However, for users of the Samsung Epic 4g Touch, they have CyanogenMod9, ICS MIUI, ICS AOKP, and about a dozen Samsung ICS leaks all at the same time!
With that much goodness flying around, it’s easy to make some mistakes. Forget to install a ROM a certain way or forget to flash back to the right kernel and recovery before flashing new s. . . READ ON »

Samsung has a history with Sprint phones and updates to new versions of Android. Just ask the owners of the original Samsung Epic 4g how long it takes to get a new version of Android.
With the sequel, the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4g Touch, Samsung seems to have learned their lesson and appear to be working quite fervently on getting Ice Cream Sandwich to its entire Galaxy S II line up. While nothing official has come through the channels yet, XDA Recognized Developer shabbypenguin, also of the Android Creative Syndicate, has gotten a hold of a leak dubbed FB09. FB09 has a special quality about it as it is the first evidence of Ice Cream Sandwich for the Sprint phone.
Early attempts were rough, as the ROM was not bootable. . . . READ ON »

When Samsung first announced which phones would be getting Android Ice Cream Sandwich, they didn’t mention the U.S. versions of the device whatsoever. While most were confident that their brand new, super power phones would not be left behind, there were some non-believers that thought they were about to be left in the dust.
For owners of the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4g Touch, you are among those that do not have to worry about it anymore. Thanks to a tip from XDA Senior Member kc_exactly, who produced the links, users can go read about a couple of leaked builds dubbed FB09 and FB10 which, among other things, claims to have Android 4.0.3 and Android 4.0.4 respectively.
There’s some fun information in t. . . READ ON »

Development for the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4g Touch has been slowly increasing over the last couple of months. Just a couple of days ago we told you about the modification to allow Epic Touch users access to all their 4g settings and there’s word around the rumor mill of CM9 in the works as well.

-Sony Xperia Software
-Sony PSP Live wallpapers
-Sony Bravia Engine
-Custom Sony Xperia GUI by Team-Nocturnal
Along with this are some . . . READ ON »

That doesn’t mean the development stops, however. XDA Senior Member autoprime has released a modification that will allow users full access to the Epic Touch’s WiMax settings. As autoprime explains:

As the WiMax enthusiasts already know… we can edit 99% of the same values as the OG Epic already using both ##DATA# > View > WiMAX and ##DEBUG# menus. Possibly the most useful edit is setting the Entry Rx levels from -89 to -110.. allowing those in low signal areas to still jump on 4G. The big edit that was missing on the E4GT was th

Everyone that wants to be involved with development has got to start somewhere, and for users who own an Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4g Touch, there’s a place for you.
XDA Member shanenielson1234 has written a thorough set of instructions for the aspiring developer who wants to learn how to compile a kernel. This has been attempted before by others, but they include things like a script that does all the work for you which leaves the aspiring developers no room to learn and no room to modify.
This method is more complete and requires the users performing the tutorial to go through each step themselves in order to get a feel for how it is really done. It opens the doors for those who want to improve on that process by wri. . . READ ON »
