These days, it seems like everybody is trying to make Android more secure. As usual, rooting and modding are often casualties of this effort. Just over a month ago Android 4.3 broke the existing model for root, forcing updates to existing methods, and now Samsung is rolling out updated Android 4.2.2 firmwares for the Galaxy S 4 which fully enable the company's heavily secured KNOX environment. Fortunately, Chainfire is already on top of it and has updated his popular root software, SuperSU, to be compatible with the new system. Read More
Developer types, take note. Samsung has just posted the kernel source for the Galaxy S4 Zoom LTE and the Galaxy S4 LTE-A. Getting a piece of the open source Jelly Bean code will allow developers to better support the devices, which might actually be important in the case of the oddball GS4 Zoom.
The Galaxy S4 Zoom is basically a GS4 Mini with a giant point-and-shoot camera grafted on the back. Read More
The Samsung Galaxy S4 Active is a neat device that's ruggedized and water-resistant. However, there's that accursed USB port. The port on this device is covered by a flimsy plastic flap that's tough to close properly, and feels like it could break off at any moment. It would be nice if you didn't have to mess with the port to charge the device, but Samsung hasn't released a wireless charging back for the S4 Active. Read More
If you cannot make up your mind between running TouchWiz or a stock version of Jelly Bean, thanks to MoDaCo.SWITCH, that's a decision you won't have to make. This piece of software makes switching back and forth between the two versions as simple as toggling a switch. Paul O'Brien, better known as MoDaCo, has started porting it to the Galaxy S4, and the beta is now available for those who backed his Indiegogo campaign. Read More
If you're running a stock, rooted Galaxy Note II or Galaxy S 4 and want easy access to some things that normally require manually editing system files, we've got the app for you. It's called Note 2 Hidden Settings, and does exactly what you'd expect: offers access to otherwise hidden system settings.
Aside from requiring root access, the app is simple enough to use – just install it and run with it. Read More
American carriers sometimes get phones later than the rest of the world. Lately the situation has been improving, especially with big-name devices and a few exclusives. But when we see evidence of an upcoming low-end phone that's almost a year old, and one that's been supplanted by a new version, we can't help but sigh. So it is with the Galaxy S III Mini, which was just pegged by Evleaks for an AT&T release. Read More
The folks at CyanogenMod never seem to sleep. After adding no less than thirteen devices this month, they threw two more official builds into the nightly updates this weekend, both for Samsung hardware. The international LTE version of the Galaxy S4 Mini and Verizon's localized version of the Galaxy Note 10.1 both have shiny new pages on Get.CM.
The Galaxy S4 Mini is on CyanogenMod 10.1 (Android 4.2), with two nightly builds available at the time of writing. Read More
Lately Sprint has done its best to become an attractive option for people who love flamboyant high-end phones. Shortly after revealing the Galaxy S4 in Purple Mirage, the company announced that it would be the exclusive carrier of the red HTC One. Tempted? Now's a good time to jump on either handset, as Wirefly has discounts on both.
The Red HTC One costs just $49.99 for new customers, and as a bonus, the $36 activation fee is waived. Read More
Talk about a blast from the past: the Sprint Galaxy S II, released way back in 2011, now has official CyanogenMod support. Most of the other international and regional versions of the GSII are already supported to some degree, but I'm sure there are more than a few Sprint customers who are happy to see the most popular custom ROM family come to their devices. There's one nightly of CM10.1 (Android 4.2) available at the time of writing. Read More
School's about to start, and nothing goes with that new backpack quite like a Galaxy S4 rocking a dazzling shade of purple. No longer will Sprint customers have to sacrifice power and functionality for the sake of fashion. Especially considering that the Moto X's customization will initially only be available to AT&T customers, the Purple Mirage Galaxy S4 is about as vibrant an option as a Sprint customer looking for a high-end phone is going to have anytime soon.
