CyanogenMod 7 For Samsung Epic 4G Becomes Official

epic cm7

There are many CyanogenMod-based ROMs available, but not all are officially supported, that is, listed on their website. In particular, you’ll notice that the Samsung Epic 4G, Sprint’s version of the bestselling Galaxy S isn’t there yet. But that’s only a matter of time now, since Decad3nce, the developer of the CM7 port, announced a few days ago that the “Samsung Epic gets officially forked into Cyanogenmod”.

And, sure enough, UberPinguin has now opened a forum thread for the new ROM, in which you’ll find all the necessary details and, of course, download links for your flashing needs.. . . READ ON »

Back Camera

If the keyboard on your Samsung Epic 4G performs less than par and gives you a hard time to type anything on it, then today is your lucky day. XDA moderator theimpaler747 along with the work of XDA member user_none, has come up with a patch that will make sure that typing in your device is not a hassle but a joy! The patch is simply an optimization of the key timer, which according to the dev will ensure or at the very least minimize the keystrokes are not dropped by the device. The work is based on a patch that was posted by XDA members mkasick, which works great for most roms, but that could be a bit better. TheImpaler has provided instructions for manual installation as well as a zip file to flash it and save you the troubl. . . READ ON »

CyanogenMod7 Alpha 1 Released for the Samsung Epic 4G

epic_CM7

This may seem a little late considering many devices are already rocking CyanogenMod 7 RC2, but for owners of the Sprint’s keyboard-laden superphone, it’s likely a breath of fresh air. Alpha 1 has just been released thanks to the efforts of XDA developers Dameon87, nullghost, and DevinXtreme, who ported the widely acclaimed ROM to the SPH-D700.

Before you go about flashing, be warned that it is still in the Alpha stage, so not everything can be expected to work. Here’s more from Dameon87:

First the disclaimer.
This software is considered ALPHA state. Some things will work, some will not. You will likely encounter bugs. Do NOT flash this if you expect the software to be fully functional.

Patch For EB13 Hardware Keyboard Dropped Key Press

epic1

If you’re an owner of the Epic 4G, and you’re running the EB13 firmware, you may have experienced the dropped key press annoyance that XDA forum member mkasick has confirmed exists.

The issue is that EB13 often drops twice pressed letters on the hardware keyboard, for example typing ‘hello’ often outputs ‘helo’. The XDA member also discovered that the EB13 keyboard driver delays 1/10th of a second between reporting ‘key_press’ and ‘key_release’ events. This means that when folks press the same letter twice in that 100ms, the kernel will only be able to acknowledge one of the presses.

mkasick has provided a kernel source patch that fixes th. . . READ ON »

Get Better 4G Signal in Your Epic 4G

samsung-epic-4g-open

Are you a happy 4G (WiMax) user in the US? If not, it may be because of your Epic 4G’s WiMax radio’s performance. However, not all is lost because XDA member gokuman56 has written up a guide to improve a few things that have kept you from thanking your carrier for 4G. The guide will show you how, by modifying a few parameters in the WiMax programming section can improve both the quality of the signal that you obtain from the towers and also, the time it takes to re-connect if the connection was to get lost. The dev claims that the guide is relatively straight forward but you may still want to read up the procedure a couple of times before moving forward with the change. A few things are needed such as the MSL code, . . . READ ON »

Custom Battery Meters for Epic – Taking Requests

battery meter

XDA moderator theimpaler747 just let us into a project that he is currently working on. As it turns out, he decided to make custom battery meters for the Odex DK28 roms for the Samsung Epic 4G. So far, the project only has 3 designs to choose from. However, the dev mentioned that he is taking requests to make new meters. So, do you have an idea for a different meter? Maybe you would like to see one that you saw in a different device included in this list. Whatever your reason may be, this will give you a chance to make your device more “you”.

Please leave some feedback and requests for the dev, so that this collection can grow bigger.

Ok, here is going to be my compilation of custom battery mode for any ODEX DK28 ro
