Default Multi-Window with ALL apps, not just the samsung ones

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 hack enables multi-window functionality for any application - Know Your Mobile


Looks like the guys at XDA did it again. There's a mod you can use that will enable all of your apps to be multi-window capable.

Of course so far this only works on rooted International versions

Hopefully by this time next month there will be rooting available for my AT&T Note2 (i-317)

Our Intrnl brothers and sisters will love this. I'd like to love it too but Samsung didn't see fit to include multi view for U.S.

As long as it can be "un-done" I'm in for try.
But I would advise to use caution - I rooted and installed a Custom ROM in my Archos 80 G9 - but of course now it impossible to install the official Android updates direct from Archos.

I'm inclined to wait and use the stock AT&T Galaxy Note 2 ROM and not Root for a while, as its possible AT&T might roll out a few iterations of new bug fixes in the next few months after intial shipments.

If I root - I might be left out on obtaining those.

I don't know if it can be undone. I'm currently satisfied with my S'Note as it is. I posted the link specifically for you based on your post of wanting root for your A'Note not knowing root was available for all Note 2's no matter the carrier.

good ROMs are supported by the dev..
and they are updated very quickly..

as new great mods are out .. or updates from OEM / google..
the Devs will release an update .. most of the time within 24hrs.

i have never had issues about getting timely updates for the popular ROMs

I'm SO happy I also got the International version from that Daily Steals deal. I'll be rooting that for sure.

To me! And maybe by tomorrow night, I'll be posting on here through my ATIV tablet PC

In a matter of a short few months, I went from not really wanting to give Samsung a shot, to maybe, to having 2 Samsung phones and a tablet PC by them...all thanks to Best Buy gift cards and my obsession with how good I found the S-pen to be with my handwriting compared to past experiences with stylii on tablets.

You really have been on a shopping spree.
Did you leave anything for the other kiddies to buy?

Hahaha...I always share my "finds" with my fellow Android bros and sis.

As for the fam (big family), still tryin' to see what they all want. Luckily for me, no wife or kids to worry about yet.
