Unlimited apps Multi-Windows

Hi there, sorry for the absence of posts this week. After many entries on idioms and vocabulary, it is time to return to messing around with my Galaxy Note II and towards the end, I will have an extra surprise note on Galaxy S2 as well!

Let's kick off with some updates on the Q & A about GT-N7105.

For your information (FYI), I have been updating my XDA forum thread, currently titled [FAQ] Galaxy Note II GT-N7105 FAQ Compilation (7th Dec 2012), so for the detailed FAQ, you may want to follow that page. Here in this entry, I will select the most important updates I have.


Question 5:

What is the best custom ROM for GT-N7105 you will recommend?

Definitely, deadman12’s N7105XXDLK7 deodexed Rom V1.1 [4.1.2][Aroma][Rooted]. I have installed that on my N7105 today and it works flawlessly and the battery life is great! The phone only ran out of battery after one complete day of intensive use. It has unlimited apps for its Multi-Window feature and now I can split the screen with ANY two apps.

Question 6:

How should I install it? Is there anything I need to know before the installation?

First, you need a rooted phone of course, preferably with CWM Recovery installed. Then you don't need to wipe the data and reset to factory setting, simply install the N7105XXDLK7 deodexed Rom V1.1 over to your existing stock ROM. No data will be lost, so don't worry.


Question 7:

Did you have any problems with the custom ROM? How can I solve them?

Well, a tiny one, a couple of apps cannot be run. The solution was to use a file explorer such as ROM Toolbox Lite and then go to /data/app and delete those unusable app and then reinstall again from the Play Store.


Question S2:

You seem to have forgotten about your Galaxy S2, glad to hear about S2 again, what's the surprising news?

Now, how surprising is the Galaxy S2 surprise note? At least I was shocked when I heard it! And that is, Galaxy S2 is getting almost a clone stock ROM of the Galaxy Note 2!! And yes, it even has the Multi-Window feature for all apps such that your S2 is essentially a mini-Note 2 without a pen!!! True freaking awesomeness!!!



Question S3:

How about the same thing in S3?

If you want something stock looking with unlimited app Multi-Window, I recommend you first install wanam's [LKC V5.1][Aroma][23 Toggles] WanamLite Smooth & Rock Stable, then install bala_gamer's [MOD][4.1.2] Enable Multiview for all available apps v3. I have installed them personally on an International Galaxy S3 (GT-I9300) and it works perfectly!


So if you own an S2, S3 or Note 2, you are going to have a lot of fun this Christmas!!
