quick question sir...are you rooted and on custom? id like to learn the ropes

Not familiar with where Aerofone is though

Im not yet rooted and I've had it for about a week and a half. I might just do so this weekend. I will have to downgrade the firmware first since I did 2 OTA updates already

Currently I'm using a knockoff SGP Ultra Thin (For Php250). White case on White Note REALLY looks nice, but I could use something with a stand


The Verus case looks okay , but I would really prefer not having a flap since its annoying to use one handed (on the MRT) or to use it in landscape.

I have a Chinese flap (bought together with the phone) case with a hole for the speaker as well and another hole to see whoever is calling without opening up the flap, but it becomes really thick due to the case and the holes make me feel that the screen isnt protected anyway, so why bother.

jig is only useful if you want to reset the "flash" counter on your phone. You see, smart phones like our galaxy note records if you have flashed your phone using methods such as through Odin.

But for the purposes of rooting, using zergExploit rooting method doesn't increase the flash counter. That means you won't be needing the jig. hope this helps

Exclamation USA Data service (Carrier)

Pinoy from NYC here.

My international GNote is also rooted and evaluated the MIDNOTE 2.0 (ICS LP1 and ITALIAN QUALITY) Rom. ICS really flows smooth on the GNote. I really like it with all the new features and functionalities.
The main issue I have is the Straight Talk data service I am using does not work with the XXLP1 radio modem used with Chinese leaked ICS rom.
I know this because when I revert back to my GB Rocket v22 rom, it uses the XXLA4 modem radio and Straight Talk data service work with 2-5Mbps download speeds as opposed to a consistent 9kbps DL with the ICS LP1 radio. Yes, 9kbps!! WTH!!
Right now, this ICS bandwagon is still new so I will have to revisit this rom along with other roms that can work with the Straight Talk service.

I am curious what carrier service are you using with your GNote in California and your data DL speeds?

Mabuhay y'all!!!

i was thinking of doing a cf root flash with cwm then using the jig to reset the counter...comparing methods for the s2 and the note, i guess the note still had the ability for zergrush exploit (which i never used before)...i cant (or am lazy) find any bootloaders or new fw with bootloads with are reset-able using a jig...anyways i found a link here for that but i have to flash a zip just to use the jig...a tad complicated

Yes it looks great, but the case is covering the mic and when I make calls while using the case, the person on the other line can't hear me clearly so it's kind of sitting in my shelf at the moment.

The reason I got the brown case (Verus) is because of the speaker hole. I was thinking of getting other cases but most of them don't have this hole and I find it really convenient to have this feature so you won't need to flip over the case whenever taking calls.

i like the one on the left...how much are these anyways?
