How to Convert your Note 2 into Note 4! [DN4 ROM]

For those of you with a GT-N7100 Note 2, you are in luck because Team Electron is bringing you the DN4 (Ditto Note 4) ROM, ported straight from a real Note 4.

This ROM essentially turns your old Note 2 into a Note 4.  Even better, the Ditto Note 4 ROM ships with my favorite AgNi kernel, which allows you to overclock up to 2Ghz and undervolt! (but I recommend 1.9Ghz for overclocking)

How to Convert Note 2 into S5/Note 3 Hybrid Phone!

Probably the coolest thing you can do on a Note 2 is root and install custom ROMs.  Well, a lot of people just “don’t get it” and stay on stock firmware, which actually is super laggy and you are limited to features Samsung gives you.

There’s a better way to use your Note 2 by installing custom ROMs that give you Galaxy S5 and Note 3 features.  Of course, that is if you want to take advantage over everything that your Note 2 has to offer and root it.

How to Fix Faulty USB Port on Galaxy Note 2! [Disassembly]

One of the easiest things to break on a Note 2 or any other smartphone is the USB port. Whether you yanked your USB charger accidentally or spilled milk onto it, did you know it’s fairly an easy process to fix a faulty USB port?

I’ve had some bad luck on my Verizon Note 2 and although I didn’t break it myself, my USB has been acting up since the day I got the phone. Since I hate even making trip to the store and worried Verizon might have to hold my phone for couple days, I decided to fix it myself.

How to Fix WiFi Hanging Problems on Galaxy Note 2!

For those of you having some wifi “hanging” problems on your rooted Galaxy Note, it’s not from installing custom ROMs or rooting (I found out).

Recently, I’ve been having problems of connecting to my WiFi router at random times with my GT-N7100.  (I haven’t seen this problem happen with other Note 2s I own but you can still use these methods to solve your wifi problems for all the Note 2s.)  The problem occurs when you are trying to connect to your Wifi, it will hang while trying to connect even though you have perfect signal.

How to Enable T-Mobile 3G/4G AWS Bands on AT&T Galaxy Note 2 SGH-i317!

For months, many people have been asking me if there’s a way to run T-Mobile 3G/4G AWS bands on the AT&T Galaxy Note 2 SGH-i317.  Well, I’ve always told them the AT&T Note 2 does not have the hardware required for T-Mobile’s HSPA+ bands but I feel really stupid now as it is possible with a bit of hacking.  (Actually takes like 5 minutes, very easy to do and no root is required.)
