Two options under the notification panel in Android on a Samsung device shows you the “S Finder” and “Quick Connect” buttons. If you want them removed from the notification area, there are two ways to do so: one will not be available to all users, and the other requires root…here we go…
Sometimes, when you apply a new Rom to your device, the Rom developer may put in a custom tone for when you boot up or shut down. Sometimes that sound isn’t really wanted by the end user. If you have one that you would rather not hear, here’s how to remove it. As with most other system mods/changes, your device must have root access; continuing on, I assume that you have root privileges on your S5 as well as superuser permissions granted correctly.
There’s a hidden setting in Windows that allows you to do pretty much anything, but it’s a hidden feature. This option doesn’t give you everything available in the system, but it does give you a very large list of configurable options all in one place. To gain access to this function, here’s what you need to do…
Sometimes, after you root or flash a custom ROM on your phone/tablet/phablet, you might have trouble sending and/or receiving MMS messages. This includes pictures, videos, recordings, really anything that isn’t just standard text.

After installing new HDD into iMac, recovery partition is lost. In order to re-partition without a bootable disc, but instead using another iMac (with the first being in target mode) here’s what to do.
PS3 CFW 3.55 Update (to 4.55)
I have an old, fat PS3 running CFW 3.55 KMEAW and I think it’s time to give it an update. Thankfully, doing so is a lot easier now than it was two years ago.
So, the S5 has been out for a little while and I’m getting on the bandwagon now that there has been a bit of time to work out the kinks. I think now’s a good time to root my S5. Why would I want to? Well, it gives me access to the system, custom recovery tools, and more control over my device. Also, it allows me to install custom Roms (phone operating systems). Here we go…
Your Wi-Fi network is your conveniently wireless gateway to the internet, and since you’re not keen on sharing your connection with any old hooligan who happens to be walking past your home, you secure your network with a password, right?
