Mobile ODIN Updated to Version 4, New Features and Devices

screen-1

We first featured XDA Senior Recognized Developer Chainfire‘s Mobile ODIN app a little over two years ago. Ever since the beginning, Mobile ODIN has allowed users to flash ODIN-flashable firmwares directly from the device itself, without the need to connect to a full computer.

Over the course of the app’s various updates, Mobile ODIN has evolved considerably—both adding support for new devices, as well as gaining new abilities. Now with an update to version 4, the app has gained even more abilities, as well as compatibility with a few more devices.

The most notable feature new to version 4 relates to its ability to flash modem images. As these partitions are protected, flashing may be t. . . READ ON »

Meet JOdin3: A Web Tool that Flashes Your Samsung Device

Untitled2

Odin and Heimdall were pretty badass gods in the Nordic mythology. But to Samsung device owners, these are important and powerful tools designed to flash stock ROM files, much like Flashtool on Sony phones. In short, they are an essential part of Samsung Android development here at XDA.

Many times in the past, we’ve talked about XDA Senior Recognized Developer AdamOutler‘s CASUAL, otherwise known as Cross-platform Android Scripting Unified Auxiliary Loader.  The cross-platform Java-based tool allows you to perform many cool tasks like rooting, flashing stock ROMs. and so on.

The project is now on a different level, as Adam has presented JOdin3, a web browser-based and offline flas. . . READ ON »

Jelly Bean Leak for the International Galaxy S II

nature UX

Well, it’s been a long time coming. But after a whole load of nay-saying, conjecture, and incessant optimism, Samsung Galaxy S II owners can finally grab hold of a leaked Samsung test build of Android 4.1.

Although Jelly Bean has been available for the Galaxy S II for some time now, there’s been no sign of a version from Samsung. But thanks to XDA Forum Member izap, build XXLSJ based on Android 4.1.2 is now available to download. The build features the latest version of TouchWiz known as Nature UX, which will give your Galaxy S II something of an S III look and feel. And to quote one user – “It’s freaking smoooooooooooth…”

So far the general feedback seems to be quite . . . READ ON »

Interview With Recognized Developer AdamOutler Pt. 3 Final

Interview

Finally we got to the third and final part of this interesting interview:
If you missed previous parts, you can find them in here for Pt. 1, and here for Pt. 2

orb3000: What would you recommend to anyone interested in entering the
high-level hardware mod world?

AdamOutler: I would recommend getting a hold of some tools and hardware, get
on google and do it!

I’d choose the standard $60 Radio Shack temperature controlled soldering
iron, some breadboards, leds, 1kohm resistors, and a microcontroller. Any
open-hardware development board will teach you how to work with inputs and
outputs. One of my favorite development boards is the Arduino series. Some people may say, “hey, Arduino is not real hardwa. . . READ ON »

Interview With Recognized Developer AdamOutler Pt. 2 Of 3

Interview

Welcome to the second part of the interview with Recognized Developer AdamOutler:
Here you can find the first part in case you missed it.

orb3000: We know you have the longest bash script ever written, what is made for exactly?

AdamOutler: Mythical Librarian was a
project I created over the course of 6 months. At the time, my daughter was
3, could not read and liked TV Shows like Dora the Explorer, Sesame Street
and others. I found a way to make it so she could point to the show she
wanted to watch, with proper naming convention, XBMC could assign pictures
to each episode and she could select which TV Show she wanted to watch. The
idea behind this project was to automate the process of recording a video,
looking up the seas. . . READ ON »

Galaxy Tab 7.7: All Things Are Set, ROM Development Has Started

GalaxyTab7

Two years ago, who would’ve thought we’d be covering actual tablet development? In that time, we were astonished by the screen size of the HTC Touch HD – 3.7 inch almost seemed too big for our pockets. And see where we landed now: the tablet and smartphone industries are slowly blending together, especially thanks to Dell’s Streak and Samsung’s Galaxy Note. It is incredible to see how these industries change so rapidly. Fortunately, development is more active than ever before, and even tablets are supported on XDA now.

Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 7.7 is their latest addition to the tablet range. Thanks to Chainfire’s efforts to include Galaxy Tab 7.7 support in his Mob. . . READ ON »

Samsung Galaxy Note Among the Latest to Get CyanogenMod9

scr_2

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 notewort. . . READ ON »
