A Note on Epic 4G Touch EL29 OTA Update!

Here’s a quick note on those of you rooted Epic 4G Touch. EL29 OTA update is rolling out as of today, please do not try to update your Epic 4G Touch with the new OTA update on your phone.

Better yet, just wait a couple days until a rooted ROM of the OTA update is available, which I will post as soon as it’s up.

Why?

You will most likely lose root with the OTA update plus it can cause havoc on rooted Epic 4G Touch so my advice is just to wait a couple days for a rooted version so you don’t lose root.

How to Make a USB Jig for Epic 4G Touch!

usb-jig-howto-14

Well, since I bought a new Radio Shack digital soldering station couple weeks back, I figured I would start doing some soldering.  So I made the USB Jig for Epic 4G Touch and Galaxy S2 smartphones, which took me about 15 minutes to make, definitely worth it as you can reset your ODIN download counter, get into download mode on hard brick, and also erase the i9100 boot splash on rooted phones.

This is definitely a cool jig.

Midnight ROM for Epic 4G Touch!

midnight-rom-epic4gtouch

Another great ROM for the Epic 4G Touch is the Midnight ROM, which comes with CIQ (Carrier IQ) removed, 1.6Ghz OC kernel, and more cool stuff.

This is very similar to the Starburst ROM, you are going to get a very stock-like experience yet faster speeds and no more focusing speeds with focus on camera.

I will probably review this ROM again later when it’s more developed (as will all ROMs, we are still in infant stages for Epic 4G Touch ROM development) but for now, give it a go and let me know what you think of this Midnight ROM.

For now, I will be

Starburst ROM for Epic 4G Touch!

starburst-rom-epic-4g

I’ve been testing out a bunch of ROMs lately and wanted something a bit faster/better than stock.  Well, I’ve been using Starburst ROM on my Tab 10.1 for months and have to say this is also a great ROM on the Epic 4G Touch, which is what I am using.

Over stock, the Starburst ROM is a bit faster/zippier and I’ve loaded ZedomaxEpicTouchKernel v3, getting pretty good speeds on Quadrant and seems pretty stable so far.

Anyways, you can try out this setup too, download ROM here:
