Experimental CM10 for the Samsung Galaxy 3

NOT the samsung galaxy s III

AOSP-based ROMs are usually the only way many devices ever see versions of Android beyond their OEM’s wishes. Thankfully, they are also everywhere. The Samsung Galaxy 3 has actually had a port of CyanogenMod 10 for quite some time, but it was definitely one of the rougher first builds out there. However, it has recently received a big update that actually makes it usable.

XDA Senior Member marcellusbe first released CM10 for the Galaxy 3 back in July. However, it had a lot of issues: No data, no phone signal, there were kernel panics, and a host of other issues that made the ROM little more than a proof of concept. However, after some extensive work, the ROM has been updated, and the working list is now much long. . . READ ON »

Lewa, Joy, and Mokee OSes Ported to the Galaxy 3

LewaOS

Not too long ago, we brought you a tutorial on porting JoyOS and LewaOS to any Android device. The process involved using CyanogenMod 7 as a base ROM and then porting the proprietary files, folders and libraries. It wasn’t overly complicated, but it did involve some work. Using that tutorial, XDA Senior Member pratikmore was able to successfully port not only Lewa and Joy OS but also Mokee OS to the Samsung Galaxy 3.

The ROMs are installed as any other ROM. Users simply need to wipe data, cache, and dalvik-cache before flashing the ROM. There are a few quirks that users may need to deal with. As pratikmore explains:

After installation please call from other mobile to your,then you can hear the voice.

MegaBassBeats Brings More Punch to the Galaxy SL and Galaxy 3

Bass thing

Android and XDA have been awash with volume and equalizer modifications since the porting of Beats Audio to all Gingerbread ROMs. Users have been flashing these mods left and right in order to give their music a little extra clarity, some volume, and a lot of extra bass. From Sony XLoud and Beats Audio to DSP Manager, Android has been always had a lot of great options for those to prefer to customize their audio. For the Samsung Galaxy 3 and the Samsung Galaxy SL, there is now an option that brings even more bass—if that’s what you’re into.

XDA Senior Member D3HuM4NiZ3D originally brought the modification to the Samsung Galaxy 3 and, with full credits given, XDA Senior Member bscraze ported it to . . . READ ON »

Dolby Sound Enhancement Drivers Ported to Galaxy 3

Dolby Volume

Many consider stock Android’s music management and sound output to be sub par. This manifests in developer efforts to fix the situation such as equalizer applications and the porting of Beats Audio to every Gingerbread ROM. Since Google is presumably not working on making audio more exciting, it is up to the developers to keep the audio enhancements coming. XDA Senior Member D3HuM4NiZ3D has also ported the Dolby Sound Enhancer to the Samsung Galaxy 3.

Installing Dolby Sound Enhancement will, first and foremost, delete anything even remotely related to Beats Audio on your device if you already have it on there. However, many users agree that Beats Audio delivers too much bass, and Dolby delivers b. . . READ ON »

Kernel Devs Can Now Give Galaxy 3 More Internal Storage

Samsung Galaxy 3

For aging devices, having more internal storage is eventually not only a desirable commodity, but often times a required one. For many phones, this is a problem that cannot be fixed, but can be managed a little with techniques such as Apps2SD.

For the Samsung Galaxy 3, and other devices with similar kernels, there is a way to actually increase the available internal storage by moving the /data partition to an EXT4 partition on the SD card thanks to XDA Recognized Developer arunmcops. Don’t believe it? Check the featured image. This is based on previous work done on the Samsung Galaxy Mini by XDA Forum Member Doc_cheilvenerdi.org. It is obligatory at this point to point out that this is re. . .

Everything You Ever Needed To Know About The Samsung Galaxy 3

system-architecture

Surely, we have some lower end devices in our forum, but just because they lack the most recent or powerful hardware, it doesn’t mean that there isn’t any development on them. Take for instance the Samsung Galaxy 3. This device has been buried among other devices present in our site, yet we have people like XDA Recognized Developer dharamg3 who has decided to take a stance and help owners of said device. In this case, he has started compiling a resource guide of everything you need to know about the SG3, and quite possibly about Android in general. He goes through all the basics including what Android is, roms, rooting, kernels, tips and tricks, and everything you can possibly think of. The guide is f. . . READ ON »

How To Correct Samsung Galaxy 3 Hardware EQ Settings

sc20110417163707

Some of you might be familiar with the audio quality for playback on the Samsung Galaxy S variants, and it sound like the Samsung Galaxy 3 suffers from the same.

There is a way to fix this and XDA forum member FadeFx (thanks to Supercurio for the SGS version), has posted how to correct the settings in the servicemode app.

You’ll have to go to ServiceMode and select Audio/Headset/TX value/Tx filter and adjust the settings to zero.

The good news is that unlike the SGS, the SG3 settings will persist on reboot, so you’ll only have to make the adjustments once.

For full instructions, head on over to forum thread.. . . READ ON »

Nook Color and Samsung Galaxy 3 Fora Added

logo

Who would have thought that we would feature a product made exclusively for Barnes & Noble (book store in the US for those in other countries)? It seems that B&N is jumping onto the Android bandwagon as well with the newest version of the Nook reader. This is probably the delayed response to Apple, Sony, and other manufacturers who jumped into what seemed their “niche” market. Well, for those who got their hands on one of these during this Black Friday, we now have a section for it to develop and improve this new Tablet. On top of that, another member of the Galaxy series has joined our family, the Galaxy 3. This is another Android device, which is a bit lower range, but with good specs and promise.. . . READ ON »
