    Note 3, KitKat, /sdcard, External SDCards, and...

    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...

    USB 3.0 Cables

    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.

    Android Data Backup Apps?

    Any suggestions on an app that can backup your data (call log, sms, images, videos, etc.) to say, Google Drive? Free would be nice if possible. If not free, relatively inexpensive.

    Kitkat and external SDCards. What changes?

    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...

    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.

    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...

    Future Updates? How do they work?

    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...

    Root [Verizon] To root or not to root: that is the question.

    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?

    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...
