Not just chat bots but, artificial intelligence has significantly played a vital role for many other segments as well where AI backed enterprise apps and several e-commerce apps have started integrating AI in order to better learn about their target audience buying behavior and preferences in order to feature them with the most relevant and appropriate product/services suggestions. An expert team of Android app developers California said that Artificial Intelligence has gained significant momentum in terms of providing products/services providers to get precise data and information.
  2. Most Support

    This might be a dumb question but I have a us990 and am having problems with the sim card reader. I'm thinking of getting a new phone and I am wanting one with a ton of support considering I could only find maybe 2 custom roms that somewhat still support this phone. Could anyone recommend me some that have a ton of support that I can use at US Cellular?

  4. META-INF

    hello all, my name is raycekar and i am currently in the process of making stock+root rom 5.0.1 flashable for the us990 Why you may ask, i want to learn more about android development i have so far got the system image, boot image, and am working/stuck on understanding the meta-inf of a flashable rom some tut say just to pull it from a custom rom for your device but im uncertain of doing that and i also want to learn to create it myself my main goal for creating this is to learn how to develop and modify the rom in many different ways along with removing bloatware. if you have any good tutorials please let me know
  5. READ THROUGH FIRST BEFORE DOING. MAKE SURE IT APPLIES TO YOUR SITUATION. THREAD WAS WRITTEN FOR PEOPLE WHO WERE ON STOCK 4.3. ANYTHING BELOW 4.3 WILL NOT WORK WITH THESE FILES. SAME PROCESS, JUST NEED THE RIGHT FILES YOUR STOCK TOUCHWIZ VERSION. Works with Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, and 10. Hey guys. If you're an idiot like me, you might have flashed the wrong firmware for your phone and now the Galaxy SIII is as useful as a brick. Well, you've come to the right place. I accidentally flashed the MD4 radio on my SCH-R530U. After countless hours of research I finally conceived a plan on how to revive the phone. Symptoms of a Soft Brick: Bootloops, Stuck at Galaxy SIII screen, uhh and other stuff where the display actually turns on. If it does any of these, wrong thread. Symptoms of a HARD BRICK (what you're probably here for): Power does nothing, no output to display, no download mode, no recovery mode, computer recognizes it as QHUSBLOAD or something like that. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Let's get fixing. You'll need: 16 or 32GB CLASS 10 Non UHC-I MicroSD Card (complicity matches internal memory of the phone, although I used a 32GB SD card for a 16GB phone and it worked just fine), a hardbricked Galaxy SIII duh, a Windows PC with a SD Card reader, MicroSD to full size SD card adapter, proper files (included later), a wall charger, and time. I'm writing this thread to try and not have people go through hours of research to get their phone back. 1. Download all the required files. 2. Make sure that the SD card is class 10, non UHC-I (I used a SanDisk Ultra 32GB card), and has no files on it. ALL FILES ON THE SD CARD WILL BE OVERWRITTEN. 3. Unzip the Win32DiskImager program and run as administrator. YOU MUST BE AN ADMIN ON THE PC. 4. Put the MicroSD card into the Micro to full size adapter and plug it into the PC (if you haven't already). In the DiskImager program, click on the drop-down box under device, and select the SD card's drive letter. Mine was F: for example. 5. Click on the folder-looking icon and point it towards the file named "SCH-R530U_CND4_debrick.img" once downloaded. http://upload.teamuscellular.com/5Ig 6. Once you are sure that that is the drive letter click "write" and then "Yes". The write process should only take a couple of seconds to finish. Once finished, take out the MicroSD card from the adapter. 7. Open up the Samsung Galaxy SIII. Take any existing MicroSD for SIM card out as well as the battery. Put the SD card that we just formatted and insert it into the phone. Plug the phone in using the wall charger. The red LED should light up indicating that the phone still knows that the MicroUSB slot still exists. If there is no red LED, then this will probably not work. 8. Reinsert the battery. The phone may start up on it's own or you may have to hold down the power button. My phone started on it's own. If all goes right you should get output to the display and maybe boot into Android. If you were like me and flashed the wrong ROM, you're gonna need to flash a new one. 9. For the people that the phone booted into Android, you MUST have the SD card in your phone or else it will become unbootable again. Don't want to have to have the card in there 24/7? Keep reading. 10. For both the groups of wrong ROMs and anti SD booters, you'll have to flash the stock TouchWiz firmware. So backup your data (if there is any) and download this file: http://upload.teamuscellular.com/38m?d=1 11. This file will take people that were still running 4.3 and move them up to 4.4.2 KitKat. People that already had 4.4, this will work too. I was still on 4.3 because I rooted. 12. Open Odin Download: 13. REMOVE THE SD CARD FROM THE PHONE OR ELSE ODIN WILL WRITE THE BOOTLOADER ONTO THE SD CARD WHICH MEANS YOU'VE SUCCESSFULLY DID NOTHING YOU WANTED TO DO. 14. Press "start". No, not the Start Button. Start in Odin. Yeah I'm bad at this. 15. This will take several minutes to complete. Be patient. Do not touch the phone just to reduce the chance of something screwing up. 16. If Odin finishes and says "PASS!" in a green box, congratulations! You've just successfully unbricked your Samsung Galaxy SIII! (Yes you can boot without the SD card now too. If you want to keep the SD card as a "Oh sh*t I messed up" card, feel free. But you can use the card normally by using a free Windows program called Minitool Partition Wizard and make the card normal again by deleting all the small partitions and creating one big one.) If this helped you, you're welcome. If you wouldn't mind swinging by my YouTube channel and giving it a sub, it would be greatly appreciated. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6a_9cLDE_9KTBfvKGbpXxw Twitter: realZekTech Instagram: zek_tech Have a great day with your SIII!

  9. Hello! I'd like to run a 4.4.2 Google Play Edition rom on my USC GS4. I want a stock googleish 4.4 rom, with the Samsung camera drivers. The Google Play rom has been ported from ATT/Tmobile to Verizon. This is the rom: http://galaxys4root.com/verizon-galaxy-s4-roms/google-play-edition-rom-with-android-4-4-2-kitkat-for-verizon-galaxy-s4/ The rom will not boot if I flash it on my phone (I've tried). It goes into a locked download mode, and I have to flash something else to make it boot again. Could I use a ROM converter to make it work, such as the one here? http://teamuscellular.com/Forum/topic/4634-sprintverizont-mobileatt-to-uscc-rom-converters/ If that won't work, is there anything that would, or might?

  11. [App Review][Game]DEAD TRIGGER

    DEAD TRIGGER If you haven't heard of DEAD TRIGGER or of it's developer MADFINGER Games you're in for a treat. If you're into FPS games especially if you dig zombie games then you're really in for a good time. I'd suggest going ahead and downloading this amazing and free game (WARNING: IAP are there but not required). It's easy enough to use with the on screen buttons but with my MOGA Pro controller it is only better although using the main launch screen still requires touching the screen to move around but I'm ok with that as the game play uses the MOGA to it's fullest. The game play is smooth and has a good story line to it. In essence you start in a city in despair. You have to go on missions to collect supplies, maintain a position and hold of hordes and also to find survivors in order to gain money and points. The more you level up the more weapons and add-ons you can get. Also the more you level up the more you can upgrade your weapons. Every day you start the game you are welcomed with a daily reward of some free chips and even gold sometimes to use and win some extra goodies. Besides the must do main quests there are other side missions there is an arena to test how long and how many points you can gain in an endless onslaught of the undead. A nice addition is the ability to have your game play saved online so you can download it to any device and continue where you left of which not many games do. Overall I have been thoroughly enjoying this game. There's just nothing like destroying an endless bevy of walkers with a plethora of style of weapons to choose from whether it's a pistol, shotgun, machine gun or even the classic chainsaw or even a special alien gun for blasting the zeds away. Even without a controller this game is fun so if you have some free time to kill and some space left on your device go give this fun game a go.
  12. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=44213286 You can flash it over your Cyanogenmod 10.1 ROM safely, make sure you get the gapps for 4.3 though. No bugs that I've run across so far aside from using Font Installer (don't use it, it'll break your ROM and you'll have to reflash.) IR Blaster, MMS, Camera, etc. etc works perfectly. Make sure you go into the Dev Options and go to Root Access and select App and ADB and you'll be good to go. Can't think of much else to tell you guys. All credit goes to the bloke over at XDA, my buddy Stephen, and the 2 cents I tossed in there to help things a long a little. So you will get nightlies over there, though it's an AT&T ROM he complies for many devices. When CM catches up, you can just use the CM updater. Anyway, enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!

  23. I recently read a viewpoint on the entire lawsuit that put new light on the proposed ban of certain Samsung phones by Apple. In the past, when facing lawsuits from Apple (HTC, anyone?), companies have simply updated their software pre or post launch to avoid infringement. My argument is this: Many of the models that Apple seeks to ban are running older software (2.x.x) including the SII's, the S 4G, and Droid Charge. Android's new software is not only meant to streamline Android and even run better on lower-spec hardware, it also finds loopholes around the patents Apple is defending. So, a simple solution to keeping the Galaxy phones available for sale in the US if they are banned via their old operating system? Update them to 4.1. In short, Apple suing the pants off of Samsung may just force a lot of companies to expedite 4.1 upgrades to their phones to keep them available. Just a thought. Yours?
  24. Hey guys, I was looking around in the play store and I found a app that is really sweet. You must be rooted, and most importantly, make a backup of your .prop Support the developer, it is 1$, but trust me its worth it. I haven't tried the 3G, due to only 200mb of data, exceeded 5gigs. now its turned off. But anyway, tell me how it goes, any differences or even your opinions!

  25. Ok, I gotta admit: been thinking about this way more since my kid's iPod Touch was stolen recently. Anyhow, I'd like to have my S3 rooted and be able to flash custom roms via custom recovery yet still be secure enough so that if someone else got hold of my phone they wouldn't be able to read anything off it or even be able to use it whatsoever. The problem, it seems, is that download mode and custom recovery are security holes. I can have my screen locked with a pattern or a password, I can have usb debugging disabled, I can even have my /data partition encrypted. But all a determined thief/hacker has to do is three-finger boot into cwm recovery, connect the phone to PC via usb, and then start running adb commands. Theorectically, they could dump my phone data to PC (for later hacking) and then wipe the phone and start over again with essentially a clean phone (e.g. to sell to someone else). Alternatively, they could boot to download mode and flash whatever they want to it and continue using it without me being able to do a d*mn thing about it. The fact that recovery is insecure means that remote apps that help you find/lock/wipe your phone (like WheresMyDroid) can be wiped off the phone and are pretty much useless against somebody who knows the basics of custom recovery or Odin. Or am I totally off-base? I guess it would be nice if either: download mode/custom recoveries could be password protected OR there was some way to remotely "brick my phone". It's almost like I'd want to be able re-lock my bootloader whenever I want (e.g. after flashing a saucy new AICS rom), while still retaining all the on-going benefits of rooting/flashing roms. I know, security and convenience are not always in a perfect harmony. Sometimes one is sacrificed for the other. Any other paranoid rom flashers out there with similar thoughts?
