How to Use a Galaxy Note 7 Without Blowing Up! [ROM of the Week #1]

For those of you who want to keep enjoying the Galaxy Note 7 but failed to because Samsung has recalled them, you can still enjoy every software feature of the Galaxy Note 7 by converting a Note 5 into Galaxy Note 7 by installing a custom ROM.  I know many people still want to keep using a 5.7-inch Samsung device and the Galaxy Note 5 is still a great candidate with an S-Pen and camera that still beats many of new smartphones that came out this year.  Best of all, you will be able to enjoy all Note 7’s S-Pen features including animated GIFs using Smart Select, off-screen memos, and even full Note 7 camera app (everything works except panorama).   And yes, even AOD(Always-On-Display) works!

How to Remove/Fix 60% Battery Limit on Galaxy Note 7!

(Above is my Note 7 fully charged to 100% and with green icon, this is an ORIGINAL Note 7, not the second edition.)

For those of you STILL using the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, we highly recommend you to return it to Samsung or local carrier.  But there are instances like where you may not be able to get your full money back.  I bought my international Galaxy Note 7 on eBay and could not get my money back as it was over 30-days for the return period plus eBay doesn’t have policies protecting Galaxy Note 7 buyers.  You may be in the same boat where you acquired the Note 7 overseas and it may mean you are stuck with the phone.

App of The Week #1 – Mobdro, How to Watch Free TV on Android!

I will be doing app of the week on every Tuesday, this week’s app of the week is Mobdro, an app that allows you to watch free TV on Android.   This is a really cool free app that is not on the Play Store yet it allow you to watch free LIVE TV that includes hundreds of channels from all over the world including U.S., U.K., Canada, France, Germany, etc…etc…  How this app works is it looks for existing free online TV streams and brings it to the app so you can enjoy free TV.  While resolution quality isn’t the best in the world, this will allow you to enjoy free TV from anywhere in the world.  When you are outside of your home country and the country you are staying at doesn’t have any U.S. TV channels, this is a great way to watch them overseas right on your Android device.

How to Film Professional Videos w/ Android Smartphone!

In this video tutorial, we show you how to film professional quality videos with your Android smartphone. (You can also use iPhone or any other smartphone if you’d like.)

Now, probably the least you will need is some type of a tripod and a smartphone mount to hold your smartphone.   Without these, you will end up with shaky videos taken with your hands which may look very amateur at best.

How to Root Galaxy Note 7! [Exynos]

For those of you who want to root your Samsung Galaxy Note 7, currently you can root Exynos-based models of Galaxy Note 7 including the SM-N930F, SM-N930FD, and Korean SM-N930K/S/L.  U.S. models based on Qualcomm are not yet supported such as AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, or Verizon as they have locked bootloaders.  If you absolutely want root on your Note 7 and you have AT&T, T-Mobile, or any other GSM carrier in the U.S., you can grab the SM-N930F or SM-N930FD model, which work flawless on GSM networks like AT&T or T-Mobile. (You can grab SM-N930FD on eBay for around $699 also much cheaper.)
