Just a couple days ago, we talked about how Samsung finally shared its KitKat update plans for several of its devices. Now, we’re seeing Android 4.4.2 make its way to the Sprint variant of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, following up on the release of the KitKat-compatible kernel source for the device.
A little under a week ago, we talked about how Android 4.3 (I9505XXUEMJ5) was starting to roll outfor the Samsung Galaxy S 4. Thankfully for those averse to waiting, XDA Recognized Developer Faryaab mirrored the update and gave users instructions on how to use Odin to flash the ROM image. Unfortunately though, some users updating from Android 4.2.2-based custom ROMs have had their share of issues ranging such as bootloops.
Android 4.3 Jelly Bean is now available in official capacity for the Samsung Galaxy S 4. With the recently leaked Android 4.3 I9505XXUEMJ3 firmware floating around, we knew that the official release wasn’t far behind. Now, it’s here in official capacity.
Even with its successor already in the wild, the aging Samsung Galaxy Note II is still a fantastic phone. The powerhouse features a large, high-resolution display, plenty of RAM and internal memory, and a processor that is still quite speedy. That said, the newly released Galaxy Note 3 improves upon the original Note and Note II in practically every way. However, not everyone will notice or appreciate the increase in CPU speed, RAM, and resolution. Rather, many would prefer to simply have some of the Note 3 software features on the Note II.
For those of you with a Galaxy S4, Note 2, S3, Note 10.1, or Note 8.0, there’s an easy way to enable all apps for multi-window now using the Multi-Window Manager App. Before, the user had to install a custom ROM or a multi-window MOD to make this work but with the app, all you need is root.
Every new device has its own set of issues, and the recently released Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is no exception. First, there was that benchmark scandal. Next, came region locking (which has since been taken care of by XDA Elite Recognized Developer Chainfire). Now, many users have also reported difficulties restoring application backups using the popular Titanium Backup.
We all love floating apps. From making them to using them for productivity or leisure, they add quite a bit of functionality to the Android experience. When theGalaxy Note 3 launched with its own floating app feature called Pen Window, there was much cause for excitement. After all, what better way is there to make use of the large screen than to have multiple apps loaded and visible at the same time?
There are several custom ROMs available for Samsung Galaxy Y GT-S5360 and all most other OS ROMs are popular. This is the best way to get other OS features apart from Android on device. Not only Galaxy Y other Samsung phone especially are treated with it. All the thanks go to xda developer for bringing up the iOS7 Custom ROM for Galaxy Y GT-S5360. The ROM is basically pattern/ theme seen in Apple phones and comes with other basic features. In this article you will come across the requirement and procedure to get the custom ROM on Galaxy Y.
We’ve written about XDA Elite Recognized Developer Chainfire‘s CF-Auto-Root for various devices in the past. For those just now hearing about CF-Auto-Root for the first time, it’s essentially the easiest and quickest way to achieve initial root for your Samsung device, while keeping your newly rooted device as close to stock as possible. And due to the ease at which this can be applied, it’s essentially “root for rooting beginners,” as Chainfire himself puts it.
We may live in a world of 6.3 to 6.4-inch smartphones, but the Samsung Galaxy Note 3’s 5.7-incher is still pretty big. And getting around it using only your thumb can be a challenge. Samsung has always offered “one-handed mode” software tricks on the Note series — for example, letting you shrink and rearrange the keyboard, dialer, and other areas for easier thumbing.
