Create Your Own Packages with Android Flashable Zip Creator

Lego-Android_485

Imagine that you’re flashing the latest nightly of your favorite ROM. If you are performing a fresh install by wiping all of your data, this also means that you have to flash all of your modified system apps, user apps, modules, and so on. And if you’re doing this on a regular basis, all the wasted time really starts to add up. So what do you do? Do you manually install these apps again, or do you add them to your favorite ROM? One of the better solutions is to use Aroma Installer by XDA Recognized Developer amarullz. However, you normally need some experience to configure it properly.

A few days ago, we talked about a Windows-only tool to create flashable ZIP files. Now, it’s time to present yet a. . . READ ON »

Backup Your EFS Partition with Easy to Use App

image

If you own a Samsung device, you have undoubtedly heard of the EFS partition. If you haven’t, let me explain. EFS is a partition where quite a bit of important radio data is stored. Without this data, you won’t be able to use your phone correctly. It’s extremely important to keep a local copy of your EFS partition, and we’ve already presented a Windows utility and application to backup the EFS partition on Samsung devices.

The two aforementioned utilities are not the only tools available to backup your EFS partition. Rather, XDA Senior Member ricky310711 created another application that gives users the option to backup or restore the EFS partition, as well as reboot your phone in . . . READ ON »

We first saw official Android 4.3 appear on the international Galaxy Note II LTE N7105 back in the middle of November. Ever since then, it’s gradually been making its way over to other variants of the device such as the Sprint, T-Mobile, and finally the Verizon units. Now, the update has begun rolling out to the AT&T variant of the Galaxy Note II, and it’s about time.

The update in the form of a 696 MB OTA update to  I317UCUBMK6 from the previous I317UCAMH3 build. It brings various new additions such as improvements to Multi-Window, a better camera app, “easy mode,” Galaxy Gear compatibility, and Samsung KNOX.

T-Mobile Galaxy Note II Receives Android 4.3, Grab it Now!

ysesy8um

To a certain extent, the T-Mobile Galaxy Note II has been living in the shadows of its peers. After all, the first time we saw Android 4.3 appear for the international model was nearly two months ago in the form of a leaked firmware update. Then about a month later, we saw the international model receive its official Android 4.3 update. That was also right around the same time that the Sprint variant received its update. And let’s not forget that the HTC One and Moto X have already received their official Android 4.4 updates—though that should be the case for the Note II by April.

Now, XDA Forum Member fatesealer has let us know that the update has begun rolling out to T-Mobile-branded Galaxy Note II d. . . READ ON »

Android 4.3 Pushed to Sprint Galaxy Note II, Update Captured

umupyjun

A few days ago, we covered the release of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean for the international Samsung Galaxy Note II LTE N7105. We immediately began to wonder when 4.3 update would make its way to some of the more popular carrier-branded variants.

Now, it appears as if that time is here, as Sprint has begun the Android 4.3 rollout for the . As this appears to be a staged rollout, not everyone will see the update when checking manually. However, XDA Senior Member npesa92 was gracious enough to pull the update from his /cache folder and upload it for everyone to enjoy.

The update comes in at version LP900VPUBMK4, and it is in the form of an incremental update from the previous LP900VPU. . . READ ON »

Leaked Samsung Memo Points to January KitKat Release for Galaxy S 4 and Note 3, S III and Note II by April

20131122_151224

When Google released Android 4.4 KitKat 23 days ago, we all knew that it would be quite some time before most users would have the chance to play with the OS on their own devices. Sure, the Google Nexus 5 launched with the OS, but what about those with older phones? Thankfully, the update news has been gradually coming through, with most manufacturers giving timetables as to when the the updates will come. Then there’s Motorola, which has gone above and beyond by actually starting the rollouts on certain variants of the Moto X.

Unfortunately, Samsung has yet to officially state when their Galaxy line up will receive the KitKat goods. Moreover, they haven’t even said which devices will receive upda. . . READ ON »

Galaxy Note II N7105 Receives Official Android 4.3, Update Pulled for S III and AT&T S 4

Android-4.3-Jelly-Bean-1

Samsung has had a relatively good track record as of late for providing (relatively) timely Android firmware updates. Most relatively recent flagship-level Samsung devices have already received official updates to the final version of Jelly Bean (Android 4.3), and this is no small feat considering the level of customization in their TouchWiz UI.

New to the 4.3 party, the the iconic Galaxy Note II LTE N7105  now has an official Android 4.3 update of its own. And for those keeping track, this comes a few weeks after the leaked 4.3 XXUEMJ5 build for the N7100, which has now since been superseded by the XXUEMK4 update. Originally intended for Nordic countries, this new build for the N7105 comes in at version XXUEM. . . READ ON »

If you’ve ever longed for a multipurpose toolkit that does it all on the Samsung Galaxy Note II, a new offering from XDA Recognized Contributor dr.ketan may be exactly what you’re after. OK, so the toolkit won’t do everything, but it should be enough to get most new users started and well on their journey towards device customization.

The toolkit comes in the form of an AROMA installer package. As you would expect, you run the toolkit by “flashing” it from your custom recovery as you would flash any other update. Once in the utility, there is a menu of 17 functions, with over 300 possible choices available.

Currently, the toolkit allows you to root the device, install busyb. . . READ ON »
