Pixel 3 Conversion for Galaxy Note 9/S9/S9+!

For those of you who want to convert your Galaxy Note 9, Galaxy S9, or Galaxy S9+ into a Google Pixel 3, you can now do it by installing the Pixel Experience ROM.  Now, you WILL need an Exynos model, if you have any Snapdragon models(U.S. models like AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, or Verizon), you won’t be able to install this ROM as they have locked bootloaders.(For future reference, please don’t buy Snapdragon models if you want cool mods like this.)

Android Pie 9.0 for Galaxy S9/S9 Plus! [Pixel Experience GSI ROM]

For those of you who want to try out the latest Android Pie 9.0 for your Galaxy S9, S9 Plus, or any Android device that has unlocked bootloader and Project Treble support, you can grab any of the Android 9.0 GSI(Generic System Image) ROMs and get it now instead of waiting for Samsung to update their TouchWiz, which most likely will take another 3-6 months.  And for those of you in the U.S. with U.S. Snapdragon models, it will be few more months than the international Exynos models as carriers have to re-add their carrier bloatware.  Now, these Android 9.0 GSI ROMs are NOT TouchWiz, they are not Samsung firmware but AOSP ROMs(What is AOSP?).

Resurrection Remix ROM for Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus! [Android 8.1 Oreo + Root]

Want the latest and greatest Android 8.1 Oreo with root on your Samsung Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus without the TouchWiz additives from Sammy?  Well, the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus are the best supported devices for AOSP ROMs(What is AOSP?) like LineageOS or Resurrection Remix ROM.  I was skeptical myself, as I have been flashing AOSP ROMs for Galaxy devices for over 7 years and most of the time, these custom ROMs are full of bugs in the first few months.  Well, I was wrong, EVERYTHING is nearly flawless out of the box with the Resurrection Remix ROM(thanks to flawless LineageOS ROM base).  If you don’t like TouchWiz, this is probably the best way to convert your Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus into a full-fledged pure Android device like Pixel phones.

DO NOT USE Waterproof Smartphone in Sea Salt Water!

On my recent trip to Hawaii, I broke two of my smartphones while using them in sea salt water to take videos of corals while snorkeling, I broke my Galaxy S9 Plus and my Pixel 2 XL.  In this video, I show you what happens if your smartphone seal breaks in sea salt water and also how to minimize damage from salt water corrosion by disassembling both my S9 Plus and Pixel 2 XL.  I’ve taken all my waterproof phones(with IP67 or IP68 rating) diving in swimming pools and even in 100+ degree temp spa many times but I have NEVER actually broken a smartphone from water until last week.
