Infuse 4G

A while ago, we brought you a unique method of unlocking the Samsung Galaxy S 4G using a hidden code within the phone. It’s was unique because instead of using usual tools and methods that we all use now, this method involved using a hex editor to find the unlock code already buried in the files of the phone itself and using it to unlock the phone. It took some time, root access, and a hex editor, but it worked.

Now, the method is back again, this time for the Samsung Infuse 4G. Both methods were found by XDA Forum Member sanfranx415. As sanfranx415 explains:

All right ladies and gentlemen, coders and non coders again I have personally found the unlock code NOT THE FREEZE CODE only the unlock code for your Samsung Infuse 4G by ATT hidden in the same files as previous Samsung phones.

This procedure is similar to finding the unlock code for the Vibrant 4G for those that have performed my steps in the past it should be a no brainer but if not please once again read everything carefully its not hard but just takes patience Of-course this all depends on your dedication and time but hopefully I have simplified it for you.

This is very cool because instead of coercing this code out of your carrier—or paying to get it in some cases—you are using the code that came with your Infuse 4G, and you’re getting it yourself. As mentioned, the process is tedious but not overly difficult, and those who have followed these methods on older devices shouldn’t have a problem. For more info, go to the original thread.

Infuse Tool Kit

With numerous tool kits available for a plethora of HTC devices, some Samsung users may feel a little left out. Toolkits are often an integral part of a new user’s experience because they provide easy access to otherwise complex development work.

Samsung Infuse 4G users now have such a toolkit thanks to XDA Recognized Contributor Zen Arcade. The toolkit is unique as it doesn’t run on the PC or while the phone is physically booted, but rather in recovery using the popular AROMA installer. It can flash ROMs and kernels, wipe your device in preparation for a flash, perform backups, and much more. As Zen Arcade explains:

My goal with this project was to see what could be done with the Aroma Installer without relying on the traditional ROM installer capability provided by recovery mode. The result is this “Swiss Army Knife” of capabilities called the Infuse Toolkit.

CM9 has been a target among ICS seekers in today’s day and age. However, as everything in life, one must learn how to crawl before learning how to run and with that concept in mind, we arrive at the inevitable conclusion that before being able to have the joys of AOSP CM9 on the Samsung Infuse 4G, we must first have ICS running, at the very least, partially. After lots of blood, sweat, and tears, it looks like XDA Recognized Developer jt1134 did just what everyone (who owns an Infuse) was waiting for. He brought the ICS goodness to the device, in all its unofficial beauty. As customary, the ROM has a few bugs here and there. However, by the time this was posted, a lot of features were already fully functional.

Now, if you thought that a story could have a happy ending, well… it does.  It looks like XDA Elite Recognized Developer Entropy512 decided to jump in on the bandwagon of ICS for the Infuse as well and has released an unofficial version of CM9, based on jt1134′s work. Essentially, Entropy512 managed to fix a bunch of “broken” code in the ROM, allowing for the GPS to properly run as well as the dock mode. The only two things that are not working whatsoever are the Bluetooth and the TV Out capabilities of the device. Having said that, the rom currently has a partially working camera, and every other feature properly working (data, calls, WiFi, etc).

So, if you were waiting for a chance to jump into the fun that is ICS, now is your chance. Please read the entire OP as Entropy is giving good information regarding the build, what works, what doesn’t, and even talks about some well known problems. Please make sure that you report any new findings to him.

 What is working:
Calls
GPS
Wifi (including tethering)
Sound
Video playback

What is partially working:
Camera (flash is flaky – if it’s not working, change its settings in the Camera app and it may start working)
Car dock audio (possibly desk dock too, untested) – Some issues with ringtone playback when docked – This is native dock audio, not using the Car Dock Redirector app workaround. Thanks go to StevenHarperUK of the GT-I9100 community for reworking CM9′s dock audio code to permit this to work.

You can find more information in the original post as well as in Entropy’s thread.

Heimdall Suite, an Open-Source Cross-Platform set of tools designed to flash firmware to Samsung devices, has received an incremental update to version 1.3.2. This latest update supports Galaxy S II GT-I9100, Galaxy PlayerCaptivate, Vibrant, Fascinate, Mesmerize, Epic 4G, Galaxy S 4G, Infuse 4G, GT-I9000T, Galaxy Tab (7 and 10.1 inches) and of course the Galaxy S GT-i9000.  If your Samsung device is not listed here, testing is required.

Heimdall has always been a favorite among kernel developers and those who frequently flash the latest kernels because no flashable update.zip or Odin packaging is required.   A Heimdall user can simply put their device into Download Mode, and click a button to flash a new zImage directly. XDA Recognized Developer Benjamin Dobell‘s  latest release improves compatibility with Loke (the flash receiver on the device) and expands comparability to several new devices.

In the words of the developer:

Version 1.3.2 addresses some compatibility issues with several devices i.e. the Galaxy Player 5.0 and Galaxy S II. In particular the “Failed to confirm end of file transfer sequence!” error should no longer occur under regular use. This was fixed by mapping a previously unknown protocol parameter, which I’ve now called “chip identifier”, to information in a device’s PIT file. A big thanks goes out to XDA developers user ambrice, who helped identify the cause of the issue.

unbrickable

This has to be one of the best project across our site in terms of usefulness, complexity, and potential for devices across the world. The UnBrickable mod by XDA Recognized Developer AdamOutler. In case you are not familiar with either the dev or the project, this basically is an attempt at trying to make Samsung devices into immortal devices capable of rebirth even after being bricked beyond repair. You can think of this as JTAG but without the expensive equipment and far more simplified. This project has been a complete success with the Samsung Captivate and the Vibrant and is quickly spreading over to other devices such as the Infuse 4G, the Epic 4G, and the Droid Charge. Below you will find a list of the next targets of this project, so if you can contribute with a broken device, you would be helping the dev tremendously. According to Adam, his next targets will be those equipped with Cortex A9 devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S II.

Keep in mind that this project is still under heavy development and if you are willing to help, the dev has posted several links to relevant information, so that you can understand all the theory behind it. Any feedback and/or help is much appreciated.

others are work-in-progress.  We still need boards for the following devices:

Samsung GT-i9000 SGS
Samsung SGH-T849 Galaxy Tab, Wifi, and Galaxy Tab 7.0 inch
Samsung GT-i9010 Girogio Armani Galaxy
Samsung T839 Sidekick 4g
Samsung SCH-i500 Fascinate
Samsung SGH-i877 Inspiration
Google Nexus S

If you have an Epic 4G, please visit this link and if you have a Droid Charge, please go here.

Sometimes the default camera buttons on devices are not as convenient as could be, and XDA member Frooty has come up with a mod for the Samsung Infuse 4G.

The mod is for the stock camera app that comes with the Infuse and features the following:

  • Take pictures with the power button
  • Take pictures even when low on battery (less than 15%)
  • Record videos even when low on battery (less than 15%)
  • Version 1.1. has a fix to the home key not working
The mod is provided in a CWM flashable zip. You’ll need to download it, boot into CWM and install. Then you just need to reboot and you;re good to go.
Note that the mod is for a deodexed ROM and will now work on stock ROMs.
For more information, including the download link, head on over to the modification thread.

For those of you who are patiently waiting for Samsung’s latest line up to hit the shelves, we are here to give you a place to talk about things related to the devices you long for. This time around, we have gone ahead and added the Infuse 4G forums for future development and discussions on it. This device packs quite a punch too as it comes witha  1.2 GHz single core processor, a humongoid 4.5 inch screen, and is sleek looking sporting a slim line 8.99 mm thick. Also, the fact that it can theoretically reach speeds of up to 21 Mbps is something to drool for if you are into speed.

The device seems to be unlocked for ease of loading apps that would require root. Also, there have been leaks going around, and surely enough people will start playing with them soon. So, if you are into flashing, just sit tight, you will have your fix shortly.

If you have gotten your hands on one, please share your thoughts, reviews, and discoveries with the rest of the community.
