Bored with Galaxy S4 stock apps? wanna have a refreshing UI and features of S5? download APK here


The new Apps include S Note, WatchON (this has not included Malaysia and Singapore yet), S Health, S Translator, Calculator, and Gear Manager.

You’ll need a Samsung device running Android 4.4.2 and some of the new leaked APK’s will require the old version to be uninstalled, which you’ll need to be rooted in order to do.

You can download apk from here:

  1. S Note
  2. Samsung Watch ON
  3. S5 Calculator
  4. Gear Fit Manager
  5. Galaxy Gear Manager
  6. S Translator

The new updated TouchWiz was heavily focused on during the Galaxy S5 launch as being redesigned with new flatter looking icons and UI in order to bring it more inline with the look and feel and Android. With these leaked Apps you’ll be able to see for yourself what the new TouchWiz looks like on your older Galaxy device.

Tutorial on upgrading of Samsung Galaxy S2 to latest ICS Galaxy Nexus 4.0.4 ROM

Google recently released the Android 4.0.4 sources (along with the 4.0.4 update for the Galaxy Nexus), which brought along performance and stability improvements. Recognized XDA developer Faryaab has built an Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4.0.4 ROM for the Samsung Galaxy S2 that gives you a stock Android experience as found on the Nexus, without Samsung’s custom TouchWiz UI to mess things up (for those who don’t like it).

The ROM also takes sources from Cyanogenmod, so expect the same bugs and issues as found in CM9 to be present in this ROM. The developer has said that he will update the ROM regularly as and when CM9 development moves ahead, so keep an eye on this one.

Read on to find out how you can install the F1 GalaxyNexus ROM on your Galaxy S2.


This ROM and the guide below are compatible only and only with the Samsung Galaxy S2, model number i9100. It’s not compatible with any other device. Check your device model in Settings » About phone.


The methods and procedures discussed here are considered risky and you should not attempt anything if you don’t know completely what it is. If any damage occurs to your device, we won’t be held liable.

  5. Perform a Nandroid Backup of your existing ROM, so that you can always restore it from recovery if something does not work out with this ROM. To perform a backup, select Backup and Restore –> On the next screen, select Backup again. Go back to main recovery menu after backup is complete.

How to Overclock iPhone 3G, 3GS, and iPhone 4 to 620MHz

The reason I took the risk to modify the clock speed is
simple 🙂 I will be saying farewell to iPhone. Samsung galaxy S II will be my
next toy. The hardware specification is the best in the market at this moment
(JUNE 2011). It is the best ever performance phone.

I have successfully tested the overclocking and it works
well, I suggest overclock to 533Mhz if you wish to maintain good battery level.
As you can tell iPhone 3G is about maybe 2 years plus? or more? and obviously
the batttery isnt as good as before. At 600 MHz, i have not encounter any
problems or heating problem. GPS software works much smoother with no lag. This
even works on iOS 4.0 – iOS 4.2.1

For your information

iPhone 3G has 620 MHz (under-clocked to 412 MHz) ARM
1176JZ(F)-S Processor. Apple has UNDER-CLOCKED the processor, so we are not
actually overclocking, we just optimized the processor.

iPhone 3GS has 833 MHz (under-clocked to 600 MHz) ARM
Cortex-A8 Processor

iPhone 4 has 1 GHz (under-clocked to 800 MHz) Apple A4

OK here is the main course

Step by step Instruction

1: SSH into your iPhone open file name fstab which can be
found at /private/etc I suggest you the “fstab” file. I have rename
fstab to fstab(ori)

2: Open up fstab in TextEdit (Mac) or Notepad.

3: Add the following lines:


alpine (default password)

sysctl -w
hw.cpufrequency_max=XXX000000 (Replace XXX with the MHz Eg: 533, 600)

sysctl -w hw.cpufrequency=XXX000000
(Similar as above)

sysctl -w
hw.cpufrequency_min=YYY000000 (Replace YYY with the MHz during sleep mode)


Add the above before the existing line1 and line2:

/dev/disk0s1 / hfs rw 0 1

/dev/disk0s2 /private/var hfs rw 0

Before you save the file make sure it looks like the
following. In this example I overclocked it to 600 MHz. This is similar to
iPhone 3GS speed! (833 MHz (under-clocked to 600 MHz) with ARM Cortex-A8




sysctl -w

sysctl -w hw.cpufrequency=600000000

sysctl -w

/dev/disk0s1 / hfs rw 0 1

/dev/disk0s2 /private/var hfs rw 0

4: Reboot your iPhone


enjoy!!! and remember to say thank you 🙂
