Does anyone know how to change the default for MMS pictures to not show in slideshow? I had it set that way on my GS3, but it was a ROM feature (the devils reject). Is there any way to do this on a note2?

Thanks in advance.

Edit: Thank you enewman17 for the answer!

Adding this into system/csc/feature does the trick.

<CscFeature_Message_EnableMmsOnePageViewer>true</CscFeature_Message_EnableMmsOnePageViewer>

Do you add a text file to the folder or do I need to figure out how to open the system in a terminal? I am familiar with terminal in Ubuntu, but have not taken the time to root or learn android particulars as all the features I want are already available. Maybe I need to learn to get rid of bloatware.

A quick step by step would be great if you have the time. With thousands of people trying to get rid of the slide show mms why the hell is it still around? I hate it on the Note 2 and my Atrix didn't have it.

You will need a program like Root Explorer to find the xml file in the OP. When he says "Adding this into system/csc/feature does the trick.", feature is actually feature.xml and it's located in the /system/csc directory. With root explorer you can browse to this directory and mount it as R/W to edit the feature.xml file. Once mounted as R/W, open feature.xml in a text editor (integrated in Root Explorer).

Once editing feature.xml, just scroll down to the message options and add the line in the OP. I did this by copying the text on my PC, sending myself a hangouts message, and then copying the message text on my phone. Then I pasted the copied text into the Root Explorer text editor window, menu->save and exit, then Mount R/O in root explorer. Reboot and you should be able to open MMS in non-slideshow mode.

See attached screenshots for reference.

Hey sorry to revive this thread, I am on Verizon with a Galaxy S4 and have this same issue... see below -- adding that text ( i am rooted ) did not solve the issue.


Do others have this issue?

MMS messages with text/image come in as a slideshow. Instead of showing the picture and text inside the messaging thread it displays a PLAY ( play) icon and then starts a slideshow.

When I use the root explorer and check the /system directory I don't see a csc folder. Is the folder hidden?
