Default Not much Dev support for our device..

So as I surf the other galaxy note 2 forums im starting to realize there is hardly NO dev support for our devices.. I mean other galaxy note 2 forums have tons of new development and custom ROMs and what not, but out TMobile forum is pretty much crickets.. lol.. were are all the devs at...?

I'm guessing it's because the T-Mobile variant isn't as popular, to put it in laymen terms, it's a niche device, even though Samsung has sold millions of T889s. You can always head over to the AT&T or the international forum, flash the rom and flash the t-mobile radio. I haven't personally tried it but it technically should work. Anyone who has the skynote rom on their t889 mind sharing how to do that?

Funny, I was thinking the same thing. I mean you could use some att roms but you have to be careful and flash kernels and even still you'll have data drops and who wants that. I'm just a little pissed at Sammy for the lack of support for our note 2,with so many phones being released you would think they would have worked on 4.3 when it was released from Google and gave it to carriers and told them to not release it until after the note 3 was released, but that's just me I guess. I believe I'll go back to nexus after this phone hopefully by then they will have 64gb and 5000mah battery's inside. :-/ oh and it's not that simple to just flash our modem, there's efs and other technical stuff.

As long as the frequencies from the two carriers are the same, it'll work. (I don't recommend it though, bricked my phone, but thank nandroid backup)

Smack that thanks button if I helped.

I've had sky note on my t889. You flash the rom then reboot. Reboot to recovery and flash devil kernel. Then boot back up and enter tmo apn. Works good if your in an lte area but data drops on 4g.

I'm not a dev, but I've been building from source for the tmobile gs2 and now have the note2. I should be able to build pretty much any stable rom for this device that is built for any other note2. I'm running slimkat right now.

Phone:Galaxy Note2
Rom: SlimKat-4.4.2,build 3.2
Kernal: Stock

Well waddayuknow one buwwett weft! E. Fudd
