Enable Multi Window For Apps on Galaxy Note 10.1 With CSC

3aqugu5a

Previously, we brought you news about the CSC file on the Galaxy Note. In a way, it is similar to the build.prop in that it can be used to enable and disable certain features and settings. As it turns out, there may be a way to enable the popular multi window feature on the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1.

XDA Forum Member xperiacle began a thread with an idea that altering a certain part of the CSC file can allow multi window support for apps that don’t usually have it. This would mean that users can make a few simple CSC edits and have their apps work without any mods required. As xperiacle explains:

I came across a smali code fragment that checks for multiwindow supported apps in CSC file as well as excluded apps so I

New S-Pen Optimized Image Editor Open Beta

spen

The S-Pen is a pretty unique piece of hardware, especially on the latest generation of Note devices such as the Galaxy Note II and the Galaxy Note 10.1. However, the software for S-Pen is a little lacking. There are a number of fun drawing applications and other fun apps. However, there aren’t many killer S-Pen apps. Now, there is an image editing app optimized specifically for S-Pen.

XDA Forum Member lschiedel released a beta for an image editing application designed specifically around S-Pen functionality. As lschiedel explains:

Anyway, the app is a Photo Editor with paint tools, filter tools, and multiple floating layers including Image Layers, Text Layers, and Vector Layers.

Add Multi-Window to Almost Any App on Galaxy Note 10.1

multitaskinggnote101

The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 multi-window feature started off lacking much functionality, but has since gotten rather useful. If you don’t know, multi-window allows Note II owners to use two applications simultaneously. The first app populates the top half of the screen, while the second populates the bottom half. Now, Galaxy Note 10.1 users can add multi-window functionality to any app.

XDA Forum Member Leppin released a tool for Windows that automatically adds everything needed. This is actually different from the other methods, which change system files so that any app can be used. While it may take longer, users don’t have to worry about messing up other system modifications to get the multi. . . READ ON »

Super Apps2SD Puts New Spin on Old Script

SD Card

As XDA Member Advocate Admin egzthunder1 once said:

Quite possibly, one of the greatest advancements in the Android development world was the ability to run apps on external memory.

Of course, he was speaking about App2SD, which was released a really long time ago. It was only a matter of time before the now-famous script got itself an upgrade and now the next iteration of one of the greatest advancements in the Android development world has arrived.

Developed by XDA Senior Member TweakerL, the new script is called Super Apps2SD. It functions much like the original Apps2SD in that it installs the applications to your SD card to conserve internal storage. However, there is a reason why the word super was added to t. . . READ ON »

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Gets Leaked Official Jelly Bean Update

Galaxy Note 10.1

We frequently bring you news about devices receiving unofficial updates to Jelly Bean. It is happy news, as it means the devs here at XDA are hard at work to bring the latest version of Android to the masses. That said, it’s always nice when OEMs release official Android version updates. Even if it has to be distributed by someone other than the OEM.

The latest device to get an official update leak is the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. Samsung will probably be updating their newest flagship tablet to Jelly Bean very soon as leaks are often a precursor to official updates. It should be mentioned that this update is for the N8000 version of the Galaxy Note 10.1 only. Flashing it on any other version of the Galaxy Note 1. . . READ ON »

Galaxy Note 10.1 Receives First Custom ROMs

Galaxy Note 10.1

A few weeks ago, we announced the creation of the Galaxy Note 10.1 forums. One day later, we announced ClockworkMod had been unofficially ported to the Note 10.1. We can now also announce that the first custom ROMs for the device have made an appearance. At the time of writing, there are 3 custom ROMs currently available in the forums.

XDA Senior Member zedomax brings us HighOnAndroid “TrainWreck” ROM. Based on European XXALG5 firmware, the intention of the ROM is to maintain a stock look. It keeps TouchWiz intact in order to maintain all stock features, such as S-Pen functionality.

Next up, XDA Senior Member safariking has released  CleanRom. This ROM is also based . . . READ ON »

ClockworkMod Released for Galaxy Note 10.1

Recovery Galaxy Note 101

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is moving right along. Just a few days ago, we gave the Note 10.1 its own forum space and the newest Samsung tablet has also been rooted. The only thing left was getting a custom recovery so users could start flashing the ROMs and kernels that the devs pump out. Now, they have that too.

XDA Senior Member zedomax, who’s also responsible for releasing the root tutorial, has brought an unofficial ClockworkMod Recovery Touch 6.0.1.1 for people to use until an official version can be brought to ROM manager. For installation, users simply need to flash it via Odin or Heimdall. Zedomax has also been kind enough to include the stock recovery, which users can flash to if they need to or just w. . .

Forum Created for the Galaxy Note 10.1

1

We first discussed the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 not too long ago when kernel source had been released weeks before the release of the device itself. Upon release, we were happy to see that it was promptly rooted by XDA Senior Member zedomax, with the help of Chainfire’s SuperSU. Now, we are happy to announce that the Note 10.1 has its own place in our forums.

Although the original Samsung Galaxy Note held a unique product segment by being neither traditional tablet nor traditional phone, the Galaxy Note 10.1 is clearly a tablet. And while it differs dramatically in form factor, the new device packs some features from its namesake by including S-Pen support. It also features quite a healthy specs sheet, . . . READ ON »

Samsung-Galaxy-Note-10.1-Rooted

It hasn’t even been a full day since the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 was officially released and the tablet has already been rooted. If you’ve already gotten your hands on Samsung’s latest flagship Android tablet, we’re sure this news has you feeling glad already.

Credit for rooting the Galaxy Note 10.1 goes to XDA Senior Member zedomax, who has injected the su binary, busybox, and Chainfire’s SuperSU into the official stock firmware for the tablet. While this is not a full custom ROM, rooting in this manner can be optimal for those who would rather not lose any current apps, data, and settings. For those wondering, rooting using this method doesn’t increase your . . . READ ON »
