Android Hacker Gets AT&T Galaxy Note Working On T-Mobile’s HSPA+ Network
The Android developer/hacker community loves a good challenge so when they found out the AT&T Galaxy Note supported T-Mobile’s HSPA+ frequencies, they immediately went to work. Over at XDA they even had a running bounty for the first person to successfully get the AT&T Galaxy Note running on T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network. It didn’t take that long before user tomin.fhl found a way to get it working and he’s been kind enough to post the instructions for any brave soul willing to take the plunge.
First you’ll need an unlocked and rooted Galaxy Note and T-Mobile SIM with a smartphone/data plan. After that, it’s as easy as flashing a modem file to your device using ClockWorkMod recovery, and then rebooting. This will of course void any warranty you had and there’s always the risks associated with tinkering around, but if you’re game, you could have yourself a fully functional T-Mobile Galaxy Note. Right now the speeds are slower than you would get on a normal T-Mobile HSPA+ device but at least it works without any issues.
This is an awesome breakthrough and one that is surely going to get better as more people take a look at it. If you’d like to get all the dirty details, head over to the XDA thread by following the link below.
