First Theme Available For SGS2 Hercules

theme

Ok, so a few hours ago we learned that the Samsung Galaxy S2 was successfully rooted. Well, since you are probably already done installing and using all those wonderful restricted apps that only being rooted would allow you to use, we need to give you something else to take your mind from the real world. We are proud to announce the very first flashable theme for the Hercules, which is brought to you by XDA member mongo41. We figured that it was a first for the device, so it was just good timing to present this over here. The theme in itself is a smooth black theme with minimalist glossy icons to give that extra touch of “suave”. The instructions to flash this are included in the thread as well, so if you have . . .

If you just went into a T-Mobile store thinking “hmm.. that SGS2 looks tempting but I really want to be able to mod the daylights out of it”, well, now is your chance. According to a thread started by XDA Recognized Developer |Melvin| root was achieved by slayher over at RW. You will now be able to attend to all your nodding cravings easily and flash your heart away through Odin and Heimdall. But wait! That’s not all because as a result of this successful root, XDA member bubby323 was able to dump the stock kernel of the device.

Sources For Samsung Galaxy S2 Hercules (T-Mobile) Released!

Samsung-Hercules-_1

With the release of the latest addition to the Galaxy S2 family, Samsung is yet once again proving that they are trying their hardest to commit their involvement in the development community. With the previous two installments (for AT&T and Sprint), we saw that the Korean manufacturer dropped the sources for both kernel and platform almost immediately after release (and in the case of the Epic 4G Touch, it was on the same day). It seems that people getting the Hercules (SGS2 version for T-Mobile USA) also got the special treatment that Vibrant owners could only dream of back in the SGS days. XDA member bubby323 points us to the fact that the sources surfaced on Samsung’s site in all of their downloa. . . READ ON »

T-Mobile Galaxy S 2 Forums Added

Well, it looks like the SGS2 family is finally complete. Each and every device from Samsung’s new line up finally has a place they can call home on xda-developers. The latest entry into this party is T-Mobile’s version of the SGS2, which went on sale not too long ago. The device, code named Hercules, gets its name from the obvious gigantic 4.5 inch Super AMOLED+ screen, which is one of the largest available for a mobile phone (without going into the Dell Streak 5, that is). Other features include a beefy, 1.5 GHz Snapdragon dual core processor, which clocks higher (stock) than its brethren, the (currently) mandatory 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, and a very hefty 1850 mAh battery, allowing yo. . .
