Root Note 2-Backup Rom,Apps,SMS,Contact-Flash Rom-

A-How to Root Note 2

Step 1. Put your Galaxy Note 2 into Download mode by turning off your phone first then holding down Volume Down, Center Home, and Power buttons together.
Step 2. Once you see the warning screen, hit Volume Up button to enter ODIN Download Mode then connect a micro-USB cable from your Note 2 to your computer.
Step 3. If you don’t have Samsung USB drivers installed, go ahead and download it below and run it to install.
Step 4. Next, download
Step 5. Unzip the files. Next, open up the ODIN program by double-clicking on the .exe file.
Step 6. You should see a yellow-highlighted COM box with a random number. If you don’t see it, double-check yourWindows drivers (the Samsung USB drivers you installed in Step 3) and unplug, plug your Note 2 back into your computer.
Step 7. DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING ELSE and click on “PDA” button then find the file cwm6-root-note2.tar.
Step 8. Hit Start and let ODIN flash the custom CWM Recovery. When it’s done, your Galaxy Note 2 will reboot and you should have a fully rooted Galaxy Note 2.
Your phone will boot into newly installed CWM Recovery automatically once and install Superuser app and su binaries then reboot.
You should find a new Superuser app called “SuperSU”.
You can easily verify you have root by downloading Titanium Backup app (free on Play Store) and running it.  You should get a nice Superuser permission pop-up window like below:

ṇhow to check your phone if it's rooted or not? go to play store and search app ROOT checked

B: How to back up your ROM before install a new ROM

After rooting your Galaxy Note 2, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND you to make a backup ROM at least once.
What is a ROM backup?
ROM backup is basically a snapshot of your whole Android OS.  Backing up ROM is similar to Timemachine feature on a Mac or Windows operating system recovery.
Basically, backing up your ROM backs up EVERYTHING except the contents of your internal storage/SD card including your apps, app data, settings, contacts, etc…etc…
Why backup ROM?
Backing up ROM allow you to easily restore to a previous point in time without having you to start all over from scratch when things go wrong.
So, I highly recommend you to do this, here’s how to do it easily:
Before we begin, I assume you’ve rooted your Note 2 using methods on our site, that will automatically install CWM Recovery.  If you didn’t, follow our root method first.
Step 1. Turn off you Note 2.  Then hold down Volume Up, Center Home, and Power buttons together until you see blue menus, this is CWM Recovery.
Step 2. Choose “backup and restore” in CWM Recovery and hit the Power button.
Step 3. Choose either “backup” (backs up to your internal storage) or “backup to external sdcard” (backs up to your micro SD card).
Step 4. Backup should take around 5-10 minutes.  Make sure you have enough space in your internal storage or microSD card before trying this.
Step 5. For restoring at any time to any of your backups, simply reboot into CWM Recovery, choose “backup and restore” (Step 1-2) and hit “restore” or “restore from external sdcard”.
Step 6. You should see all of your backups timestamped and you can choose your backup here to restore.
Step 7. Restoring will take 5-10 minutes.  That’s IT!
Where are the backups actually stored?  They are stored in “clockworkmod” directory.
If you want to save space, you can move the whole “clockworkmod” folder to your computer.

C: How to back up your data, sms, contact before installing a new ROM

For those of you who have rooted your newly-wedded Galaxy Note 2 and want to install custom ROMs, here’s a tutorial that can help you backup and restore all of your apps, SMS, contacts, and settings.
Most custom ROMs require you to do a data wipe/factory reset in CWM Recovery, which means all your apps, SMS text messages, contacts, and settings will be gone (although the contents of your storage are in tact such as videos and photos).
So, how do you get these things backed up and restored so you don’t have to start over from scratch?
You can use various apps like Titanium Backup app for apps, SMS backup app for SMS text messages,Google backup feature for settings (such as Wifi passwords), and GMail for contacts.
First, for contacts, I highly recommend you to make a GMail account as having a GMail account on your phone automatically backs up all your contacts and when you simply sign in to GMail, your contacts are automatically restored.  Even if you don’t use GMail as main e-mail, just make a dummy GMail account for your contacts, makes your life much easier.
For SMS text messages, there’s many, many apps that allow you to backup and restore your SMS texts, you can use SMS Backup & Restore app for one.

Google Android OS also offers backup and restore feature from Google’s servers (you can find it under Settings->Backup and reset), you can use this feature to backup up apps, wifi passwords, and other settings.
Now, I highly recommend you to use Titanium Backup app for backing up your apps.  (It’s also a great app to easily remove bloatware on your Note 2.)  This app is great since you can also use it to move all of your apps (with data) to other Android devices you might have.   For example, you want to keep that level 30 on Angry Birds from your old Droid smartphone to the Note 2, you can use Titanium Backup app to do it.
Here’s a quick start guide on how to use Titanium Backup app for your rooted Galaxy Note 2:
Step 1. Download and run Titanium Backup app from Play Store.  (No Pro version needed for backing up, I highly recommend you to get the Pro version for restoring apps though.)

Step 2. Select “Schedules” and hit “RUN”.  Anytime you have more new apps to backup you can use this menu to make a backup of your apps and its data.
Once backup starts, you will be able to see progress in your notification bar.
Also, your backups get stored in your internal storage or SD card under the directory TitaniumBackup folder.  If you want to move it to your computer or another Android device, just copy this whole folder.
Step 3. Once you’ve backed up all of your apps using Titanium Backup app.  You are good to go.  Go ahead and install a new custom ROM.  Then re-install Titanium Backup app.
Make sure USB debugging is checked on under Settings->Developers options.
And also make sure Unknown sources is checked ON under Settings->Security.
Step 4. Once those are set, simply hit the check button on the top right to and scroll down to Restore tab on Titanium Backup app.  You will see a bunch of options, I highly recommend the option, “Restore missing apps with data” for most people.  I don’t recommend restoring any system apps or data for most purposes as that can break your custom ROM.
That’s pretty much it.  Now you should know how to easily backup your apps, SMS, contacts, and settings while switching between ROMs.
Also, you can use Samsung Kies program to backup but some custom ROMs may not be compatible with Kies and that is the reason for this alternative method so you can install any custom ROM and easily restore all of your stuff.
Go enjoy!

D: How to Install a new Rom:

Want to install a custom ROM on your rooted Galaxy Note 2?
Well, here’s a universal install guide for those of you who don’t know how to install custom ROM.
Before we begin, go ahead and make sure you make a backup of your apps, SMS, contacts, etc.
Step 1. All custom ROMs come in a zip file format.  Usually there’s 1 or 2 files you will need.  So, go ahead and download the ROM zip file(s).  In this example, I will be installing a custom ROM called Space X, so I downloaded, which is the ROM file.  Copy the whole file (DO NOT UNZIP) to the internal storage or microSD card of your Note 2.
Step 2. Turn off your Note 2.  Then boot into CWM Recovery by holding down Volume Up, Center Home, and the Power buttons together.
Step 3. Before you go any further, make sure you made at least one backup ROM.  If you didn’t, please see How to Backup/Restore ROM on Galaxy Note 2 before preceding!!!
Next, use the Volume buttons to choose “wipe data/factory reset” and hit the Power button.  This will erase all of your settings, apps, etc…  However it will not erase anything on your internal storage/microSD card such as photos and videos.
Step 4. Next choose “install zip from sdcard”.
Step 5. Next choose either “choose zip from sdcard” (if you copied the ROM zip file to internal storage) or “choose zip from external sdcard” (if you copied the ROM zip file to microSD card).
Step 6. Browse your file system on Note 2 and find the ROM zip file.  If you have ROM zip file and Gapps zip file, choose the ROM zip file first.
Step 7. Choose “Yes”.
Installation should take around 5 minutes.
Step 8. Once done installing ROM, you can also install additional files need by repeating Steps 4-7).  For example, you can install your Gapps zip file here.
Step 9. Lastly but not least, choose “wipe cache partition” from main menu.  This will erase the “cache” partition, which are basically just temporary files and doing this may help prevent unwanted bootloops.
Step 10. Choose “Reboot system now” to reboot.
Step 11. The first boot will take around 5 minutes.  You should see a welcome screen pop up.  If so, congratulations, you’ve successfully installed your first custom ROM!
Step 12. Now, go ahead and restore all of your apps, SMS, contacts.

Thêm 1 thằng quyết tâm...chóng tham nhũng

Người đứng đầu đảng Cộng sản Trung Quốc phát biểu trước các quan chức cấp cao, thể hiện quyết tâm chống tham nhũng.

Ông Tập Cận Bình nhấn mạnh chủ đề tham nhũng, tham ô, vào thời điểm Trung Quốc vừa bầu ban lãnh đạo mới sau một thập kỷ và trong thời điểm hình ảnh của đảng bị ảnh hưởng bởi các vụ bê bối tham nhũng, lạm quyền trong thời gian gần gây.
"Một thực tế rõ ràng cho chúng ta thấy rằng vấn đề tham nhũng đang phát triển mạnh hơn và cuối cùng sẽ hủy diệt đảng và đất nước. Chúng ta cần cảnh giác cao độ", People's Daily dẫn lời tân tổng bí thư Trung Quốc phát biểu trước 25 thành viên của Bộ Chính trị hôm 17/11.
"Trong những năm trở lại đây, ở một số nước, những nhức nhối kéo dài đã gây nên sự giận dữ cho người dân, bất ổn xã hội và sụp đổ chính quyền, và trong số tất cả các nguyên nhân thì tham nhũng đóng một vai trò rất lớn", ông Tập nói.

Ông Tập Cận Bình vừa cảnh báo về vấn đề nan giải này trong bài phát biểu đầu tiên trên cương vị tổng bí thư khi vừa nhậm chức hồi tuần trước. Người tiền nhiệm của ông, ông Hồ Cẩm Đào, cũng nhắc đến vấn đề này trong phiên khai mạc đại hội đảng Cộng sản lần thứ 18, trước khi ông Hồ thôi giữ chức tổng bí thư.
"Nếu chúng ta không xử lý tốt vấn đề này, nó có thể dẫn đến sự tan rã thậm chí sụp đổ của đảng và chế độ", ông Hồ Cẩm Đào phát biểu trước 2.300 đại biểu của đại hội 18.

Trong số các thành viên Bộ Chính trị, ông Vương Kỳ Sơn được bầu làm chủ tịch Ủy ban Kiểm tra Kỷ luật của đảng, cơ quan xử lý các vụ việc liên quan đến tham nhũng.Theo AFP, đây là một động thái mà các nhà phân tích coi là tín hiệu coi trọng hơn đối với vấn đề chống tham nhũng.
Đảng Cộng sản Trung Quốc bị chấn động bởi vụ bê bối lớn nhất trong hai thập kỷ qua, khi Bạc Hy Lai, cựu ủy viên Bộ Chính trị, bí thư thành ủy Trùng Khánh mất chức, bị khai trừ đảng và đang phải đối mặt với các tội danh về tham nhũng và lạm quyền.
Ông Tập Cận Bình được bầu làm tổng bí thư và giữ chức Chủ tịch Ủy ban Quân ủy Trung ương từ sau đại hội 18 và dự kiến sẽ kế nhiệm chức vụ chủ tịch nước vào tháng 3 năm sau.

How to Install Flash on Android Devices

How to Install Flash on the Nexus 7 and Other Jelly Bean Devices

Flash may not be important in the future – but a lot of websites want it today. If you’re not ready to give up Flash just yet, you can install Flash on your Nexus 7, even if Adobe doesn’t approve.
Bear in mind that Adobe hasn’t “certified” the Flash Player for Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) – it’s not guaranteed to work properly and you may see some bugs. Adobe is discontinuing development of Flash for Android.

Acquire the Flash APK

You can’t install Flash from Google Play, so you’ll need to acquire the Flash Player’s APK file yourself.  While many websites, including the XDA Developers forum, offer this APK for download, it’s generally a bad idea to install random Android package files from the web if you can help it.
If you have an Android phone or tablet with Flash on it, you can extract the Flash APK yourself. There are a number of ways to do this, including with AirDroidwhich we’ve written about in the past. After installing AirDroid on your smartphone, launch it and log in via a browser on your computer. Click the Apps icon on the AirDroid page, search for Flash (it may be in the System section), and click the download link to extract and download the Flash APK file to your computer.

Install the Flash APK

Now you’ll need to copy the APK file to your Nexus 7 (or other Jelly Bean device). You can do this in a number of ways – by connecting your Nexus 7 via USB, by copying the APK toGoogle Drive or another cloud storage service, or by installing AirDroid on your Nexus 7 and copying it over Wi-Fi.
After you’ve put the APK file on your Nexus 7, you’ll need to enable the “Unknown sources” check box, which allows you to install apps from outside Google Play. To do so, go into the Settings screen. (Pull down the notification drawer and tap the Settings icon or tap the Settings icon in the app drawer.)
Tap the Security category on the Settings screen and enable the Unknown sources check box.
Now you’ll just have to locate the APK file, tap it, and install it. If you copied the APK file to your Nexus 7’s file system, you’ll need a file manager like ES File Explorer to locate and install it. If you used Google Drive, you can open up the Google Drive app and tap the APK file. (The same goes for other cloud storage services.)
Agree to the installation when prompted.
After installing Flash, you should probably go back into the Settings screen and uncheck the Unknown Sources option to disable installation of other apps from outside Google Play. This can help protect you from malware — you can re-enable this option if you want to install an app from outside Google Play.

Install a Browser that Supports Flash

Google Chrome for Android doesn’t support Flash, so you’ll have to use a different browser to view Flash content. Firefox Beta supports Flash on the Nexus 7, and you can easily install it from Google Play. Once it’s installed, you can launch Firefox to view Flash content on web pages. If you already have Firefox installed, you may need to quit andrestart it after installing Flash.
Some people have also reported success locating an APK file of the old Android default browser – named “Browser” – and installing it for Flash support. However, this will require root access and is more work.

Tips for Using Flash

If you’re only using Firefox for Flash, you may want to open Firefox’s settings screen and set Plugins to Enabled – by default, Firefox uses Tap to play for plugins.
If you still want to use Chrome most of the time, you can install Flashify to easily open pages with Flash in Firefox. When you visit a web page that needs Flash, open Chrome’s menu, tap Share, tap Flashify, and send the page to Firefox. Firefox will open and display the Flash on the page – no copying and pasting URLs required.
