MK4 MOD: Note3 features for Note2 | E-TEAM 01-12-13 |
This is not titooo7's mod. I just started it and was the first one to kick the door with the air command feature, but we a lot of people tried to help in this thread in one way or another: this MOD is basically the work of the E-TEAM.
The E-Team is responsible of 95% of the things included in the MOD and the port of N3 features for N2. But we want to thank all those users that since the begining of the thread helped or tried to help with feedback, sending files, giving support to other users, with donations or with nice words that helped us to keep this thing alive.
Please read the credits section of this thread. Although the port of Note 3 features was mainly the job of 5 people the ones mentioned in the credits section also deserve some thanks (the list have to be updated)
To be able to have Note 3 features working in a Note 2 lot of work was necessary. We (E-Team members) spent many many hours to get this working (1st research, 2nd test, 3rd modify, 4th read logcat and 5th fix bugs).
It's easy to download a zip, flash it and enjoy the features listed here in your Note 2 N7100 but it wasn't easy at all to make this thing work as good as it does.
If you want to use the files of this MOD in your rom/theme you only have to give proper credits and just as a way of courtesy you also should ask for permission. That's all what you need to do if you want to use the files of this MOD in your rom/theme.
You are free to include the files of the MOD in your rom, theme or mod giving credits but without asking for permission, but if you can't show us a little bit of courtesy and respect don't expect has to help you in any way.
E-Team is a team formed by the people who is actually responsible of having all the Galaxy Note 3 features (except a fully working camera) working perfectly in Galaxy Note 2 devices. We spent many hours doing this and we were the first ones to port every single feature from Note 3 to Note 2.
Now you can see all the Note 3 features listed here in different Note 2 roms and forums, but if you care about who made that possible you should know that we are the ones who made it possible. After we made it possible, winmerge and kdiff also helped lot of people to "re-invent the wheel" but if you ever created something from the bottom you probably know how hard it is to do it but how easy it is to duplicate it.
And no... we are not better than Samsung, the real good devs are Samsung devs and that's why they get paid very well. We ported the work they did for n3 features to n2 and that was a hell of a job, but we would be complete ignorants if we say that Samsung devs are bad devs or we pretend to make you believe that we are better.
Now we have decided to bring you Note3 features & apps as a standalone package for the Galaxy Note 2 N7100. That way you could have note 3 features in your phone, no matter which mk4 rom you are using. So here you go ROM MOD N3 Features for N2 4.3 XXUEMK4 (Deodexed):
