by: Chris SmithJuly 13, 2012

Sprint Epic 4G Touch (Galaxy S2) Ice Cream Sandwich update coming on July 12

by: Chris SmithJuly 11, 2012

The Ice Cream Sandwich roll out continues, which should be good news for Android device owners that are waiting for the latest mobile OS version from Google. Technically, Jelly Bean is the latest Android version, but JB was only unveiled a few weeks ago at Google I/O, and it will take some time until it makes it to non Nexus-branded devices.

Meanwhile, you should know that Sprint’s Epic 4G Touch, which is what the carriers calls its Galaxy S2 flavor, will soon be getting its ICS fix. A screenshot grabbed by Android Central reveals that the ICS rollout for the Epic 4G Touch is set to start on July 12 (or tomorrow) and the process should be [...]

by: Bams SadewoJuly 4, 2012

All those reports about a white HTC EVO 4G LTE on Sprint may finally lead to a satisfying conclusion in the coming days.

by: AdrianJune 14, 2012

The Galaxy S3 US launch is finally (almost) upon us. For Android fans in the US, that’s great news, not only because they’ll get to play with one of the best smartphones ever, but also because some older devices will become more accessible than ever.

Ridding your Samsung Galaxy S2 Epic 4G Touch SPH-D710 of bloatware and stripping it down to essential apps

by: Ken EastMarch 30, 2012

It’s great if your phone comes with pre-installed applications that you actually use, however most phones such as the Samsung Galaxy S2 Epic 4G Touch come with bloatware. These are applications pre-installed on your device but which you don’t actually (or frequently) use and which you cannot uninstall. The only way around it is through root access.

You can opt not to remove such unnecessary applications, however they tend to slow down the performance of your device and consume significant storage and RAM. There is now a way to get rid of them–Calkulin’s Bare ROM Converter, an application developed by XDA Developers member Calkulin.

Installing CyanogenMod 9 on Samsung Galaxy S2 Epic 4G Touch SPH-D710

by: Paul NuñalMarch 26, 2012

The Ice Cream Sandwich craze is all over town and it seems that almost every Android smartphone already had its own share of Google’s frozen treat.

Considered as the holy grail of custom ROMs, CyanogenMod 9 promises users pain-free installation of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS).

CyanogenMod 9 features full customization of Ice Cream Sandwich minus the TouchWiz UI and other Samsung bloatware. Although CyanogenMod 9 for the Epic 4G Touch is still under heavy development, expect to see this ROM with some bugs [...]

Upgrade Samsung Epic 4G Touch (Galaxy S2) to ICS Firmware FB09

by: Alvin YbañezMarch 3, 2012

There are two factors that hinder Android users from tasting the sweetness of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on their devices—the device model and the carriers’ discretion. Fortunately, Sprint is alert to the requests of consumers and soon an ICS update will be expected on their Epic 4G Touch (Galaxy S2).

Although the update has yet to arrive, ACSyndicate developer Shabbypenguin was able to get a leaked copy of build FB09 of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich destined for the Samsung Epic 4G Touch.

The developer has taken the liberty of packaging the update into a flashable ZIP file.  What’s more is that the firmware is already rooted, deodexed, and [...]

by: Carl ParkerFebruary 24, 2012

Looks like even Sprint’s Epic 4G Touch gets a power up, thanks to CyanogenMod 9. At the moment, the release is experimental (alpha 3.1 as of this writing), ported from the current build of the CM9 for the Galaxy S2. Thanks to XDA Developers member sbrissen, this ROM is based on the latest AOSP sources, and incorporates some enhancements and tweaks.

Because this release is still an experimental build, there are still a number of bugs to be addressed. Some of the known issues are:

USB (phone will charge and there will be adb access but it will not mount) Signal bars are not accurate Stock browser will not work (use Opera or other browsers from the Market) No [...]
