    Thread Drilling a hole in flip cover for LED notifications...

    Has anyone successfully drilled a hole in any flip cover so they can see the notification LED light on their Note 5? I know this trick worked with prior Note models, but I seem to recall reading somewhere the LED is disabled when the Samsung flip cover is closed. Can anyone confirm the...

    Thread Making Calls on the Note 8 With Hangouts 2.3...

    Thread S-Pen Saved My Bacon!

    I was out and about when I realized a pdf I'd emailed earlier [to someone for publication online] had some information I wanted to scrub. Opened it up on my Galaxy Note, used the S-Pen to white out the problem, then resent. S-Pen FTW!

    Any way to keep flash player running with the screen off in stock 2.2? I'd like to stream flash audio but it cuts out the minute the screen switches off. I also would prefer not to root. Thanks!
