Samsung Galaxy Note 2 N-7100 gets Android 4.1.2


Tuesday 11th of December 2012 / phandroid.com
Folks with the international version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 — aka the N-7100 — will be pleased to know that they’re one step closer to being on the absolute latest version of Android. Well… it’s a tiny step, really, as the device is moving from Android 4.1.1 to Android 4.1.2. At the core there’s not much to be had, though SamMobile claims there are some new TouchWiz features to look out for.They state that features like the ability to disable multi-view, the new Swype-like features and the lock-screen ink blotch effect are new as of 4.1.2, but many of us here in America have had those features since 4.1.1. It’s possible that the firmware is on different tracks for each region, but we’ll have to get confirmation from Samsung regarding all of that.Nevertheless the international Note 2 is only one step away from the next major version of Android. We have all the confidence in the world that Samsung is readying an upgrade to Android 4.2, though it’s anyone’s guess how long it’ll take before we actually see it arrive.

How To Disable TouchWiz on the Epic 4G


Wednesday 01st of September 2010 / phandroid.com
It turns out there is at least one more appealing aspect of the Samsung EPIC 4G, and it has nothing to do with the hardware it is running on. With not too much work at all you can disable TouchWiz as your default launcher and restore the Epic to a stock Android 2.1 interface. You lose some things such as the seven TouchWiz homescreens, but if you just can’t be bothered with Samsung’s custom interface this will do the trick.It should also work with the Fascinate when it hits Verizon, as well. Here is hoping this ability sticks when the Samsung Galaxy S devices get their update to Android 2.2, as vanilla 2.1 is looking just a bit…well, vanilla. I never thought I might say this, but you’re probably better off sticking with TouchWiz. See the video below for the instructions.[via BriefMobile]

List of Safe-to-Remove System Apps (or, How to De-bloat Your Boost Mobile Galaxy S3)


Monday 07th of October 2013 / androidforums.com
So tonight I just broke the 1200 MB available ram barrier and I'm going to share how I did it. Well I used Titanium Backup Pro to freeze pretty much every single system app I didn't need running and could safely disable without causing problems. My safe-to-remove list is essentially a compendium of other people's safe-to-remove lists for a few different devices (zero guesswork involved!) and so far no issues over here, but as always, if you turn off system apps that you actually do need then you might have a very perplexing experience trying to sort out what exactly did you do to throw your phone off-balance - or your phone might not even work at all. So be smart about it - if you turn off VPN for example and you actually need to use it then it's not going to work - when in doubt, leave the system app alone until you know what it does. Also, NEVER disable your launcher if you only have one (default launcher is called TouchWiz home) - it can be safely frozen but only if and ONLY if you have a different stable launcher in its place. Also, there are two apps called Downloads, and you ca
