Partial Schematics and Service Manual for the International Galaxy Note

ifixit

There’s a subtle difference between opening up a phone to see what’s inside and getting all the documentation on a device explaining what’s inside. Just opening the device can reveal a lot of things and give you a first hand look at the architecture of a device. Having all the documentation, however, means you know exactly what each piece does. When you know what each piece does, it makes the device significantly easier to hack.

XDA Recognized Developer E:V:A has stumbled upon the service manual and schematics for the Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000. Even thought the schematics aren’t complete, E:V:A was able to pull enough information out of them to deem them still useful. Here’. . . READ ON »

Int’l Galaxy Note Camera Mod Brings New Features and Removes Annoying Ones

Note Camera

Unless you’re a professional photographer or a hobbyist, chances are you probably use your phone camera for most of your photography needs. While that may have been absurd 10 years ago, cameras on mobile devices have undergone a significant improvement in recent years. Now they’re good enough for the majority of simple snapshots. In response to increased camera quality, developers have released a few camera mods to make cameras on Android devices better. Now, the Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000 has a camera mod of its own.

The mod not only helps to improve the Galaxy Note camera experience by adding new features, but also helps by removing some features. Posted by XDA Forum Member jobnik, the mod fe. . . READ ON »

First Universal Kernel for the International Galaxy Note

NOTE N7000

The Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 has received significant attention in the ROM development department. CyanogenMod, AOKP, AOSP, ParanoidAndroid and of course TouchWiz-based ROMs have all made an appearance. The trouble with all these ROM variants on the N7000 is that TouchWiz-based kernels cannot be used on CyanogenMod ROMs and vice-versa. Naturally, this limits the choice of kernel depending on your choice of ROM.

XDA Recognized Contributor g.lewarne has broken through this barrier and developed a custom kernel that is compatible with both Touchwiz and CyanogenMod based ROMs. HydraCore Universal kernel comes in both a stock frequency/voltage version, and an overclocked / undervolted version f. . . READ ON »

AOKP Jelly Bean Unofficially Ported to Galaxy Note N7000

halfillusion

A few weeks ago, we brought you news that the CyanogenMod 10 Official Preview was released on the Samsung Galaxy Note N7000. We can now also report that AOKP Jelly Bean has unofficially made it’s way to the Galaxy Note, thanks to XDA Senior Member toxicthunder.

The ROM, known as Half-Illusion, is built from the aforementioned CM10 preview build and AOKP nightlie merges. Of course, as with most early Jelly Bean ports, there are still remaining bugs and other issues, but great progress is being made. As toxicthunder says:

The Jelly Bean previews may contain loads of bugs to be squashed, errors to be rectified and issues to be dealt with. 
Hence, please do not flash the ROM if you’re uncom. . . READ ON »

Temporary CWM.zip on Galaxy Note Found as a Cause of Hard Bricks

CWM Galaxy Note

We’ve brought you regular updates on the hard brick situation on the Samsung Galaxy Note, including what Samsung is doing to fix it. In short, the issue has been a bug in certain ICS kernels that causes hardware failure. XDA Member Advocate Admin egzthunder1 said it best in his great article about it:

It turns out that there is a major bug in the leaked ICS kernel that affects the /data partition in the eMMC chip, which apparently gets corrupted during certain operations such as wiping and flashing.

Well, that’s not all for the Note. As it turns out, there’s an issue with some temporary CWM.zip files floating around that can also cause these hard bricks. XDA Elite Recognized Developer Entrop. . . READ ON »

Kernel Source Master List for the International Galaxy Note

Kernel Source

Whenever a new kernel is released, it is subject to the GPL. This means that full kernel source code for all publicly released kernels and firmware based on the Linux kernel must be made publicly available. This is usually no big deal, as most OEMs and kernel developers provide the legally required GPL-compliant kernel source shortly after releasing a new update or device. However, the difficulty is often in finding all source code links that you would need conveniently. While going into the kernel thread and grabbing link is fine, having a centralized space for this would help many looking for a base upon which to add commits.

This is now available on the Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000 thanks to XDA Recogni. . . READ ON »

Today’s release comes from XDA Recognized Developer XpLoDWilD, who is also a member of Team Hacksung. As with the release on its sister device, users must take into consideration that this is a preview build. Thus, quite a bit is currently not working. As described by XpLoDWilD himself:

This is a PREVIEW : CyanogenMod 10 is nowhere near ready to be used as a daily driver (lots of features still have to be merged)
