OK, so people have been saying that beginning with KitKat external SDCards can't be arbitrarily written to. Like, I can't simply write data to anywhere on the external SDCard (/storage/extSdCard, not /sdcard).
So, I updated my AT&T Note 3 to the new KitKat version and opened up ES File...
Any suggestions on USB 3.0 cables that will work with the Note 3 when you have a phone case on it?
Why I ask is that a lot of USB cables come with connectors that don't leave enough room for the connector to make a connection with the device while a case is on.
Some smart phones come with the ability to expand storage with a MicroSD card. The Galaxy S4 for instance.
I've been reading some things that make me a bit worried about devices that have a limited amount of internal storage such as devices that have 16 GBs of storage. My phone only has 16...

There's a third-party kernel available for this phone made by a guy on XDA named Jeboo.
I have it on my phone right now, seems to be very stable. Plus, couple this with Trickster MOD on the Google Play Store and you can tweak...
Once I root the phone with Motochopper, what can I do? I know I'll have root but then what can I do? I want to see if I can load the third party Faux kernel for the phone. Do I need to load a recovery to do that? Or can I use the dd command to write the kernel image to the boot partition? If I...
Has anyone had any issues with using Motochopper to root this device after the last OTA update? Also, if I don't do anything but root, can the device still take OTA updates?
There seems to be some third-party kernels ready for this device. If I backup the device's kernel using a command like...
Korean tech giant Samsung is well on their way to setting new records with the recently released Galaxy S 4 smartphone. An unnamed Samsung executive recently told a Korean newspaper that the company supplied four million Galaxy S4 handsets to telecoms around the world at the end of April.
I'm looking at the 2A charger over on the Samsung accessories store, specifically this one...
Is it compatible with the Galaxy S4?
In the future, if there is an update to the AT&T version of the S4, how will it be delivered? OTA? Something called Kies?
If it is delivered via Kies, would it be a good idea to backup all apps and associated data before I perform the upgrade? Or is it like an OTA update in which the update...
Oh yeah, I was definitely going for a Shakespearean-like sound to the opening title of the thread.
So the question is... how many people are planning to root this device?
As of right now there are no custom recoveries to be able to get yourself out of a jam and we don't have any ROM dumps that...

With pre-orders coming to the US is less than two weeks, which version are you going to get?
White? Black? 16GB? 32GB? Which one?
I'm thinking of getting the black version in the 32GB storage option. Mainly because I need the space and I think that white would show too much dirt. But...
I think that we are starting to see the end of the hardware Android era in which manufacturers were competing on hardware. Now, it's software that will pave the way for differences between devices.
OK, before you start grabbing the pitchforks and lighting the torches, hear me out.
So I've been dealing with absolutely horrible coverage in and around my area with Verizon Wireless. This includes little to no signal and consistent dropped calls.
Well, I decided to take things into my own hands. I filed an official FCC complaint on the FCC's web site. I did this about...
