About

Welcome to HighOnAndroid.com!

This site is dedicated to the “fun side” of Android and being “high on Android”.

We feel there’s too many sites that don’t give a fair review of Android and how far it has come. Our goal is to spread the power of knowledge and why you should get high on Android instead of buying inferior products at over-marketed prices.

We highly value your opinions so don’t forget to leave comments on our blog posts!

Thanks!

    Awesome website Max. Keep up the good work.

  2. Robert Corsi says:

    Love your site, please keep me informed. I have a
    Galaxy Nexus and want to know if I should root it or
    not?

  3. Andreas says:

    Hi Max

    I have a issue, I hope you can help me.
    I followed your instruction and rooted my Galaxy tab 10.1 and it worked fine. Then I install busybox via clockworkmode and my tab crashed on my first reboot. I can reach clockworkmode but that´s it, my computer can´t find it (but I can hear how my computer “finds it), I can´t start up my tab. but I can reach it via odin3. What can I do? I made a factory reset, but nothing, I have “rooted” it a few times + installed busybox again (via clockworkmode). Can I format my Data and system from clockworkmode? Where can I download new software and reinstall “original” software?
    Can I somehow install ubuntu via Odin, so at least I have one (hopefully) working rom?

    Thanx for your support and great inspiring webpage.
    Andreas

    Thx max love the info.

    Question about HTC EVO 3D ROM’s is there a rom that will still run the 3D camera?
    I’m hoping for a list but if I can get just one that would be awesome. I really fell in love with 3D and do not want to lose that on the phone.

    Rusty.gh

  6. Hey have you tried Permissions Free inside BusyBox? It started restarting my Evo4g.. It restarted and then restarted again, I quickly uninstalled it asap on the 4th boot. 🙁

    love your videos.. Keep up the awesomeness!!

  7. Sky Kim says:

    Hi Max!

    I have a request to make to you! I was wondering if you can do a video for how to install midnote 2.2 from midnote 2.1. I really liked your instruction video to install midnote 2.1 on galaxy note. I actually follow your method to install any rom on my note and it works every time without a problem.

    Thanks in advanced.

  8. Rob Desisto says:

I can’t seem to find anything to root it, but we’ll not a good step by step method with good links.. I’m trying to get this working for my son..
    Please let me know and keep up the awesome work..

  10. snmax21 says:

    Hey Max! You have a lot of phones. Can give me one? 🙂 I’m poor, i’m young I cannot buy one by myself. Love a Galaxy Nexus 😡

  11. Maxcaos says:

    Hi max (Apple sucks) first off my back ground I’ve been rooting everything I can droid1, droid x, x2, droid 3, I’m addicted to ROMs wife won’t let me root her razr maxx. I’ve only had Motorola phones to root I’ve bricked and unbricked em 🙂 i am really comfortable with Motorola but can’t wait for the razr hd because of the Verizon unlimited data subsidized pricing crap going away so i preordered the galaxy s3 i535 and I just wanted to know your thoughts on Samsung and rooting.
    it looks easy like Motorola do they brick and unbrick similarly and how do you like the Samsung GS3 be honest I wont be offended.
    Thanks for your time

    • Max Lee says:

      I love motorola devices but lately it’s causing a lot of headaches for me because motorola SBFs can cause bricks, my droid razr is currently in fastboot failure mode, the only way to fix it is to make motorola factory cable plus Motorola SBFs are not backward compatible. For example, if you are on SBF v.5 you can’t flash SBF v.1. Which causes a lot of headaches and I am not buying any more Motorola devices again until they fix that issue. On the other hand, Samsung GS3 is awesome and GS2 also, you can flash GB to ICS, ICS to GB, unroot to GB or ICS, there’s no restrictions/limits that Samsung puts on the phone, in fact they do the opposite of what Moto has been doing.

      Well, at least Google bought moto so hopefully that will change and when that changes Motorola will regain a place in my heart again but for right now, take a look at my droid razr that cannot be unrooted without a moto factory cable for last 2 months, it’s a sad reality that’s happening to everyone else who doesn’t have the time to solder themselves a stupid cable.

      • maxcaos says:

        Wow glad i didn’t root the maxx yet thanks that really puts my mind at ease i was excited before but now i don’t know if i’ll have enough time in a day with the GS3 AWESOME Thanks max great website keep up the hard work

  12. Richard says:

    I was wondering if and why you haven’t done a review or video on the HTC rezound. My friend hasone and I’ve been talking about rooting it but haven’t found a lot of clear walk through like you do foe the other devices. Hope to hear from you soon keep up the good work.

  13. Wuufer001 says:

    Last flash was on WM6.5 on the touch pro, up until now, with great instructions and step by step guide, no reason to not start flashing again on the I9100. was going to get rid of it until i found out about ZEDOMAX on Youtube lol. Keep up the great work!!!

    quick question though, i have flashed the Resurrection Remix on the I9100.
    On my carrier in South Africa, i normally have to send a text message to the carrier for the model of my phone and they reply with a setting i use in order to activate the 3G network, but i can’t seem to receive that setting, have requested a few times but still didn’t receive. Wondering if maybe you know something that may cause this problem

  14. Rik Diamonds says:

    Do you have a root for the coby kyros 8127 to root into ics roms? Also are they any ics roms

    • Max Lee says:

    Hi Guys,

    first of all a big thanks to your detailed root advice and video reviews of latest custom roms. You are the best out there! Saved me lots of time and worries!

    Now I just got a HTC ONE X + here in the UK and I cant find any root advice or custom roms? Is there anything good already? will there be something like onexplusroot.com?

    Thanks!

    Stephan

  30. Doug says:

    Is there any way to connect an external (small) HD video camera (via USB) to an Android and record? A normal HD video camera it too big for my application….and a phone has the battery & space to save video. I’m guessing there’s probably some additional hardware and software required – is that correct? If so, I’d be interested in funding the hard/software development…let me know.
    Thanks

  31. Michael Falkson says:

    Hey. Great work!. I have just migrated from Blackberry 9900 to Samsung S2X and already its rooted and I have the latest rom on your site.
    One question which I am sure you can answer, but no one else seems able to. That is, how do you move apps to the REAL external SD card and not the Samsung internal which they call external? This has got me beat
    Looking forward to more adventure in the future
    Thanks
    Mike

  32. Sam says:

    Love this site! Great work mate! Loving my S4 atm. Can I please suggest some tutorials for future consideration for the S4?

    – How to root the S4?
    – How to install CWM on the S4 and where to get the file?
    – How to flash other countries’ stock rom after flashing?
    – What does CSC, kernels, firmwares etc. mean? How does it affect your rooted / non rooted phone?

    🙂

    Thanks again for the great contribution to the Android community.

  49. Cat says:

    Not sure what the deal is here. Got a recommendation to come here to downloadrom.com for downloadAtrix4g/rooting. As a non member the download kept timing out w/an est time of 4 hrs. So I signed up. Still got the Captcha and still got the time out w/an est time of 4 hrs. So I tried to search the site, but every search I put in for Atrix, Atrix4g, whatever comes up No Results. So I’ve been pretty much wasting the last 5 hrs trying to download a zip file that I’m thinking maybe doesn’t exist. If I don’t get a response in 24 hrs, I’ll know this is nothing more than an elaborate email spam game.

  50. Fırat says:

    Hi Max,

    how are you?

    how can root it LG G2 (D802) about safe method, please can u help me?

  51. Cat says:

    Firat, dont know if you’ll get a response. I havent found a lot of help here. It too me 2 days to figure out on my own how to download the rooting software. I’ve spent another day going thru a rooting process that seems to take everyone 10 min & has an anticipated fix for a hang up at step 10, but I hang up at step 9. I find the site very difficult to navigate. Having been soured on the iPhone, I’m pretty soured on the Atrix. I’m reading to go back to a regular dumb phone.
    If anybody out there’s reading, I cant root. Cant get step 9 adb… step. I need to root to do something about my touch screen digitizer. Pls help

  52. Nick says:

    Hey max, this is really important so I hope you reply.
    So i have the sprint galaxy s4 and I really need to unroot it and get it back to stock rom but every where I look, the only firmware to unroot is for 4.2.2, but I have a 4.3 galaxy s4. I really hope you can find an unroot for a sprint galaxy s4 android version 4.3. I really need it so can you reply ASAP.

    Btw, I’m stuck on cyanogenmod

  56. Ivan says:

    Hi Max, i’m in the U.K, i’ve just made the leap from apple IOS to android…. first i find it much more powerful than apples. I have a problem with one of my samsung note 2’s i317 imported from the states. It runs very laggy, so i did a stock firmware flash, it has’nt fixed the problem. The buttons are not responding the same either, power button when pressed does not hibernate the phone but can wake it up and power on, but hold it long enough it will power off menu, the home button does not bring up s voice but brings up app usage page, and gets really bogged down, even from a fresh firmware flash, i notice when in the download flash mode it has had a custom something installed previously. Any ideas??

    Many thanks Ivan ——– Great Site——— recommending to everybody i know!!!!

  57. ivan says:

    Finally sorted out the fix for this, might be usefull for other users, turned out to be incompatible or faulty buttons. Lucky I tested against another note 2 screen, as I though it was going to be the main board.

  64. Bradley Ferrell says:

    In a video on how to disassemble a Galaxy S4 Active, you mentioned that if the screen breaks, both the screen and the frame should be replaced, and you said you’d seen a good place to order this combo from, and that you’d look it up and put the information on the website. I tried using the search bar, but didn’t get any hits. Can you provide a link to this information? When I go to eBay, there are lots of different combinations and prices and I’m not confident about ordering – afraid I’ll get the wrong combination or an inferior product. Can the right stuff be ordered straight from Samsung?

  67. RJ says:

    Max,
    I have an 1:1 S5 copy MTK5682, Android 4.4., purchased new overseas. It reports am invalid IMEI. I’ve done quite a lot of reading into fixing it, and it appears that I need to root the phone and put it into “Engineer” mode from the keypad.

    So I rooted it with Kingo root. I have SuperSU in my Apps, and it does in fact say that Superuser is enabled. And by the way, just what exactly do I do with this App. I know that you’re probably rolling your eyes right now. People foam at the mouth about rooting a device for Administrator access. So what am I going access, change, tweak? People talk about optimizing the device, conserving battery, and on and on and on.

    Anyway, so I go to the keypad and enter in numbers that I found here. And here.

    Phone doesn’t go into Engineer mode. Instead, I see “USSD Code Running”. Then I get a “Connection problem or invalid MMI code.”

    Any suggestions? I really don’t want to mess with this anymore; just get it working for 3/4G data and MMS.

    Thank you for your time and consideration. Your help is appreciated.

    Regards.

  68. RJ says:

    Follow-up to invalid IMEi….
    I set up a new APN profile and have mobile data working. I realize that my closing comment to the previous post was incongruous with my question, so let’s go back to that question: is there a fix for the invalid “IMEI 3G” that I see at the bottom of the screen from the pull-down settings menu, and when I ask for it from the keypad and get an “Invalid IMEI”?
    Thanks again.

I tried Downloading SQLite Editor and Followed that the best I can Read and it says it can’t continue giving me an error message. Is it possible to Unlock the Bootloader on this At&T phone Or Do you have something else I can try so I can use my 7gb of Tmobile Hotspot data.
    Look forward to hearing from you.

    hey max….question?

    I have the zte grand x max plus. It wont boot up it will go to the main
    screen that says “ZTE” and then screen will go off. Screen will still be
    on just black. Phone will boot in FTM mode by pressing volume down and
    power. Phone will also boot in qshusb mode by pressing volume up and
    down and power. Phone will not boot into recovery with volume up and
    power will do the same thing and screen just go blank. Tried with android sdk/adb but since phone doesnt have usb debugging on. adb wont recognize and cant get into phone to set debugging on. Any help or
    advice would be appreciated. Thanks

    Hi Max, My Note 10.1 was rooted in 2012. It has Build Number JZO54K N8000ZSCMF1. When I press “Power” plus “Down Volume” it enters into ODIN MODE. Can I install TWRP?

    Hi, I have 2 questions regarding a Samsung Galaxy S4. First, I have done a software upgrade from kitkat to lollipop and after the phone restarted I got this message: “To start Android, enter you password” – What can I do, I can’t access my phone. Second, I downloaded Odin and installed the CWM on the phone, I’ve done a manual backup to the SD Card, but it stops at /data and says “can’t access /data” – So this means I can’t backup the content on the phone and I need the content (photos & videos) – Will you please help me. Thanks

    Hello Max. Been a fan of your videos from the UK. I have got an issue with my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 P5100 10.1 inches. I’ve had it for 3 years, it’s rooted and I have reloaded it a couple of times to correct errors or slow downs. But this last straw have proved really difficult. It started going off on it’s own after 2-3 minutes of booting. It keeps rebooting. Now, I have tried all the trick readily available out there; 1. rebooted into CWR mode and wiping all the cache, dalvik and even formatting!2. I have tried reloading another custom ROM. The last time it happened last year, I just loaded a new stock firmware using ODIN and that solved the problem. This time however, the same method does not help.
    After loading a new stock firmware and rebooting, it boots into the old environment, as if the wiping and formatting did not affect it. And the same problem persists i.e. rebooting after 2-3 minutes. It actually freezes before it reboots.
    That’s about as best information I can provide for now. What do you think it’s wrong. I gladly send you a bottle of wine if any solution you recommend fixes the tab.

I’m not very tech savvy, I just follow the videos. PLEASE HELP.

  92. Manny says:

    I have a tough question:

    I have a cheap chinese 7″ android Tab. I love it. I added a partitioned 8gig SDcard and moved my 75 apps to the 5gig partition. I still show over 700megs of internal app memory left because everything is on the SCcard. The app I used to move the apps to the SDcard is Apps2SD. It is rooted. I have a wireless keyboard and mouse connected, can stream video to the TV using Rocu and everything is perfect! It my my cheap laptop replacement (although nothing really replaces a laptop).

    I want to image everything in this system, and then restore it to all the other members exact same tablets. Will TWRP do this? If not, what can I use?

    Hey folks, after getting jammed up by att from an unwanted update on GS5, I lost my root and am now looking for a new phone to root and use on my att account.

    I am aware that att phones come with a locked bootloader and I have read that some other carriers don’t do this. I want to buy a new GS6 or GS6edge. When I go on ebay to look for a new Galaxy, what are the criteria? Carrier? Locked/Unlocked? International? OS version?

    Thanks in advance for your input.

  94. Tim Rix says:

    Is there anyway to flash Lollipop onto the SGH-I467 (ATT) I live in Korea and can’t even get the KitKat OTA update I’ve even tried on wi-fi sending it back to the US etc. I don’t care if the sim works but maybe the Korean variant of the same device (which has phone capabilities) will work? I think if I flashed the Korean variant firmware and radio it might work.

    Hello max. I’m here in canada and I am interested in purchasing the galaxy note 7. Unfortunately. Canada and the USA will only be getting the snapdragon 820 processor and I really want the exynos 8890. I’ve watched your sot video with the s7 edge 8890 vs s7 edge 820 vs mate 8 and could not believe the difference in battery life! I am a huge fan of you and your videos. I am on the wind network in canada and the note 7 version they will sell is the n930w8. Is there a way I could import a exynos 8890 version that will work on my network . IF SO. How do I find out what exynos note 7 model will work with my provider ? Where do I order the exynos note 7?? I appreciate any help and just wanted to let you know that you do a really good job with your videos. If it wasn’t for you i would have no clue that the exynos was that much more efficient. Thank you!

    Please, for the love of God…Or maybe just Android, tell me you have figured out a way to wifi tether with NOTE 7? Switched from a Verizon unlimited grandfathered plan to AT&T Unlimited (Directv) plan. Unfortunately, the didn’t tell me I couldn’t tether….AT ALL. Not even if I wanted to pay for a tether subscription. They don’t allow it. Please tell me there’s a real work around?

    Hi, I was looking at your vid on installing a custom ROM on the Note 7. I have the dual sim version. Does this then mean that I can no longer use both slots for my sim cards as one has to have the SD card with the ROM? Thanks in advance for your kind assistance.
