MultiWindow Manager for JB 4.1.2Tips

Last Updated:

    You can take a look here to see that this is legit and not spam or malware:

    This app will allow you to easily manage what apps can be run in multi-window mode. Now you can run any app in multi-window mode.


    Update 1.1.3- Added support for others.xml and dexed the code so it should run a little faster now

    Update 1.1.2- Fixed a bug preventing apps from being selected by clicking directly on the checkbox.

    Update 1.1.1- You can now filter applications by enabled and disabled state

    Update 1.1- Added icons to the list and streamlined the code under the hood a little bit.

    Update 1.01- Apps not checked in the manager will be added to the feature.xml file with a preceding "-". This is to fix a bug where some apps were retaining multi-window features even after un-checking them in the manager

    This app may convince me to finally root my Note. I didn't really have any need to prior.
    Everything multi-window is just too powerful to skip.

    I've had no desire to even look into rooting, but now I may. So what's the easiest method to root if I want my tablet to "feel" exactly the same? I don't care for too many custom tweaks or anything.

    Rooting does not change ANYTHING in how the tablet looks or feels. It only gives higher user rights on the device. It is like logging onto your PC with admin rights over logging into it as a guest with only user rights. Nothing really changes, but the system itself gives you higher privileges.

    I am not sure if there are any other methods, but the main one is to just use ODIN and flash an unsecure recovery. Check the guide posted in All Things Root sub-forum.

    Does mulitwindow manager place (or allow for placing) the desired apps in the quick-launch bar (or whatever it is called)?

    I believe so. Tht is the point, anyway.

    Actually the point addresses is altering the ability to use apps in multiwindow. Nothing was mentioned about the dock. I haven't rooted yet so I'm just clarifying.

    Yes apps can be placed in the tray as well.

    Is there no other way to add apps to multi window without rooting?.

    You can decompile the .apk and modify the androidmanifest.xml file then recompile it. Then you have to sign it, uninstall the original app, and install your modded .apk. After all that...you wont be able to get updates for the app through the play store.

    There is a program for it, so no need to root really. Everything described in that previous post is done automatically for you and there is also a list of all apps that have already been modified by users. Do a search it has already been discussed and a link was provided.

    Considering you cant get updates for any apps you mod...and you still have to transfer apks back and forth between your tablet and pc...its still easier to root.

    It may be his only option because hes on 4.1.1...but we didnt know that at the time. If you are on 4.1.2...its definitely easier to root.

    The only issue is warranty. At least for some.

    Resetting your binary counter is no problem...but I didnt intend to start going back and forth. Root...dont root...idc

    I just cant imagine being locked out of my own devices lol
