Galaxy S2 device hack pack..

I've been compiling information for UnBrickable mod on the various versions of the Galaxy S2 device. This generation is by-far the most decentralized "model" I've ever heard of. Some of the devices contain Exynos processors, some Qualcomm and others have OMAP.

We've conducted research on this generation of device in the following threads:
AT&T GS2 UART/bootloader hacking
Epic 4G Touch information gatheringGalaxy Nexus UnBrickable Mod development
But you're here for the Galaxy S2 Hack Pack. This Hack Pack is designed to help out those looking for information on modifying and/or repairing their expensive devices. This package contains:

Making your Android’s battery last longer

Making your Android’s battery last longer is a fairly simple task, disable push notifications, manage your 3G usage, turn off GPS, the list goes on. However what you may not realize is that your battery life may be being hampered by incorrect calibration. Basically your battery stores no information, it’s juice is measure by a stats file on the device itself; if that stats file is wrong your battery life will read wrong. Your battery stats file can be incorrect for reasons such as flashing a new ROM, therefore after each ROM flash you should calibrate your battery.

Note: To properly complete battery calibration you need ‘root’ access.

The method is in two process, steps 1-4 are ‘conditioning’, this allows the battery to make sure it’s absorbing as much juice as it can. The remaining steps are ‘calibration’ steps which work by re-writing the battery stats file on the device.
The Method

    Run down your device’s battery until it turns itself off
    Turn it back on and wait for it to turn off again; this may be straight away of after a few minutes
    Remove the battery for at least 20 seconds
    Replace the battery and charge until full and then for at least another hour – while the device is off
    Delete you battery-stats.bin file using one of 3 methods (requires root): Terminal Emulator – type su then press enter, next type ‘rm /data/system/battery-stats.bin’ (without quotes). Using a Battery Calibration App (from market) – there are many choices available, they just delete your battery-stats.bin file. In market, search for battery calibration. Make sure to read review and provided info in case of device incompatibilities. Manually – if for any reason the previous two methods didn’t work you may want to try  deleting the file manually. Using a file manager with root access (such as Root Explorer) navigate to ‘data/system/battery-stats.bin’. Delete ‘battery-stats.bin’
    Your device will now creates itself a new battery-stats.bin file with a correct 100% battery reading.
    Run down the battery until it turns itself off
    Turn on the device and charge for at least 8 hours
    Unplug the device, turn off and charge for another hour
    Unplug the device, turn on and wait for 2 minutes
    Turn off and charge for another hour
    Use the device as normal!

You really only need to do this very few months or when you change ROM. Providing you don’t change any major settings the battery stats file will remain accurate.
Note:

This may not always produce results because your battery stats file may not be affected at all.

How to make effective Title (for article)



Your title is where you convince the reader to look at your article/Blog. It needs to be snappy and attractive but there are other factors you need to pay attention to when creating a title and I will explain them to you now.
Select An Engaging Title: Title plays an important role in dragging the readers. Most of the readers only click the article whose title seems informative and catchy. If I talk about myself, I love to read only those articles whose titles give me a call.
1. Keep it short
> If your title is long, chances are the reader won't go through the whole thing. The shorter the title the more focused you seem as a writer. With that one factor of keeping it short and to the point, you have already partially gained the trust of the reader.
2. Keep your promises
> Your title should tell the reader exactly what they are going to get in your article. Don't write titles like 'How to train your dog' and then write an article about potty training your dog. State it very clearly in your title 'How to potty train your dog.' Readers will know what to expect and it is exactly what your article is about.
3. You can use 'How to...'
> Everyone wants to know how to do something, so take advantage of this. 'How to keep your garden plants looking vibrant' is an example of a 'How to' title.
4. You can use numbers
> Another thing people are interested in are numbers. The 'top 10 reasons..' or '5 tips and tricks.' They know exactly what they are getting and how much of it. This is important to the reader and you should keep that in mind when creating a title.
5. Must Use keywords
> Last but not least, you want your article to be found when the reader searches for it. Put in the key words related to your article in the title, this will ensure that your article reaches the people that want to read it.
