Samsung S Voice Ripped for the World to Enjoy

S Voice

It’s almost assumed that when the stock firmware is released for a highly anticipated device, developers will jump through hoops to make it work for their devices. As is the case with the Samsung Galaxy S III firmware, which was leaked yesterday. Developers have been getting their hands on it to give the users of their phone some SGS III love. Of course, it is assumed that the first thing to start making its rounds around the forum would be Samsung’s S Voice.

Originally posted for the International Galaxy Note by XDA Senior Member Zanr Zij, which showed that S Voice worked on the Note and probably many other Samsung Galaxy S devices, the S Voice has begun slowly making its way from device to device as user. . . READ ON »

Hard Brick Bug on Galaxy S II and Note Leaked ICS Kernels

sammybrick

Since the latest leaks for the Samsung Galaxy S2 line up have been hitting us left and right, people have been jumping between ROMs—mainly between buggy, pre-release ICS builds and very stable GB. This is, after all, what we do on XDA as a habit: We see a leak, we flash it, we use it, and we tweak it. If it doesn’t fly, we simply roll back. Of course, there is always an inherent risk in flashing stuff that should not be on your device in the first place, but the risk of fully bricking a device in this day and age is rather small. Especially, since there are tools available to bring your devices back from the dead, such as UnBrickable Mod by XDA Elite Recognized Developer AdamOutler.

Mount NTFS Drives with NTFS Mounter

NTFS Mounter

While mounting NTFS may not be the first feature users line up for when buying an Android phone, it can certainly be useful at times. For those out there who may be thinking of mounting an NTFS USB key or hard drive to their Android devices, you actually now have an app for that.

XDA Forum Member Kwull has release NTFS Mounter that does what it says and automatically mounts NTFS drives when plugged in. Currently, the app is known to support the Samsung Galaxy S II I9100, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2, and the International Galaxy Note. However, to work on these devices, the user must be running a rooted ICS ROM with a kernel that has the fuse driver. For people who don’t feel like looking, you can use the CF-Root Kernel b. . .

International Note Downgrade to Gingerbread from LPY ICS

Galaxy Note ICS

In most cases, getting an upgrade to a new version of Android is exciting. It usually ushers in numerous bug fixes, performance enhancements, new UI elements, and a whole new experience with the device than what people are used to. That said, sometimes it can be a real pain when a new version of Android comes out because a number of bad things can happen. For starters, you may loose root, along with the exploit used to acquire root. Secondly, the new version of Android may be a little buggier than you would like. This is why there are downgrade guides—so users can get back to an older version for whatever reason.

This is the case for the International Galaxy Note, as users who installed the LPY ICS update or rece. . . READ ON »

Official CM9 Nightlies Appear for the Galaxy Note GT-N7000

ArvgEPACAAAS0LA

The road to Ice Cream Sandwich has been paved with many victories for the international Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000. The device received its official dose of ICS goods not too long ago, and root methods were promptly developed that wouldn’t affect the device’s flash count. We also covered the official alpha release of CyanogenMod 9 for the phone-tablet, which came courtesy of XDA Recognzied Developer XpLoDWilD, Team Hacksung, and of course the CyanogenMod team.

Now, progress has come once again, as XpLoDWilD brings us our next chapter in the ICS saga on the N7000 in the form of official CM9 nightlies for the device. Installation is simple enough, but differs depending on which ROM is c. . . READ ON »

Root Galaxy Note GT-N7000 on Stock ICS Without Upping Flash Count

Superuser Note

It has been just a couple of days since we brought you news of the International Galaxy Note getting ICS, along with news that the update had been repacked and released for everyone. However, with every new iteration of Android comes a new challenge, and that’s rooting the new firmware. For some devices this can take months, leaving early adopters of new firmware releases without root. Thankfully, for the International Galaxy Note, this isn’t an issue.

XDA Senior Member deathst has released a root method for the ICS update for the International Note that doesn’t increase the phone’s binary count. While we already covered a method of rooting the newly updated device, this would ha. . . READ ON »

International Galaxy Note Official ICS Released, Repackaged

samsung-galaxy-note-featured

While many mobile enthusiasts seem to be more concerned with the Samsung Galaxy S III that we recently gave a hands-on treatment, it is reassuring to know that Samsung still has a place in its heart for slightly older devices such as the International Galaxy Note GT-N7000. How does a large multi-national corporation show their love for a still young-at-heart device? The best way possible, of course—with an update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

The update to ICS comes in the form of the N7000XXLPY update to Android 4.0.3. Naturally, it also brings the love-it-or-hate-it TouchWiz user interface. Currently, the update seems to only be rolling out to those Notes in Germany. However, XDA Forum Memb. . . READ ON »

Official CM9 Alpha for Galaxy Note N7000

NoteCM9

In this day and age of modern computing, one of the most popular devices out there, particularly due to the novelty of its size, is the Samsung Galaxy Note N7000. Many devs are focusing their attention on this “giant” as it is a powerful platform to develop on. Because of this and features such as the S-Pen, devs have been doing lots of work on this and it seems that thanks to the efforts XDA Recognized Developer XpLoDWilD, team hacksung, and the good folks over at cyanogenmod, N7000 users can now flash the infamous AOSP CM9 rom on the quasi-tab.

As is the case with most ports, particularly those in alpha or beta stages, there are a few quirks to be worked out by the devs. However, even for an alpha state rel. . . READ ON »
