Echo Notification Lockscreen 0.8.17

Current Version: 0.8.17
Requires Android: Varies with device
Category: Personalization
v0.8.17 update:
[+] Allow APK installs when echo is on
[+] Settings to change notification category, and to hide notifications
[+] Improved Whatsapp notification parsing
[+] Automatically unlocks for alarms
[+] Lock screen smoothness and performance improved
[+] Better clock syncing
Questions or feedback? Email support@echolocker.com. We love to hear from you!

Overview:
(ALPHA) Echo Lock Screen centers your notifications around you. Instead of browsing through dozens of unnecessary messages, Echo automatically filters your notifications and delivers the most important alerts straight to your lock screen.

★ Stay organized – Echo automatically groups your notifications to make them easier to scan. When you open your phone in the morning, your work, game, and social updates will be neatly separated.
★ Avoid interruptions – Echo learns from your behavior and identifies the notifications that are important to you. To help you avoid interruptions, Echo only wake your screen on a priority message.
★ Detailed view – Echo locker shows you more details on each notification. Unlike widgets like NiLs or DashClock, Echo lets you view and dismiss notifications individually.
★ Create reminders – You can set a reminder to bounce back at a later time or place.
★ Secure – Echo works with your default security

IMPORTANT NOTE + DISCLAIMER!

Echo will change your lock screen for the better. If you are looking to make heavy customizations to everything on your lock screen, this is not the app for you. But, if you wish to have easier access to your notifications and fewer interruptions throughout the day, you’ve found the right lock screen. We hope you like it!
• Help translate Echo to your language: https://crowdin.net/project/echolocker
• We would love to hear your feedback. For bugs and feature requests, please email support@echolocker.com.
• Join our Google Plus page for updates: http://goo.gl/kgwjKV.
• Twitter: @echolocker

ADDITIONAL INFO:

• Works with custom launchers like Go Launcher, Yahoo Aviate, and Everything.me.
• Show Notification on lockscreen from your favorite apps like Whatsapp, Viber, Slingshot. But Echo is far more than the iphone IOS lockscreen; Echo automatically categorizes and allows you to perform different actions on the notifications.
• Echo locker is very easy to install. It is not a widget like NiLs or DashClock. It also is not necessary to be set as home like Go Locker. Echo requires no custom setup and replaces your entire lock screen.
• You can customize your app categories, wallpaper themes.
• To use Echo locker, you must give access to your notifications.

How to Root AT&T/Verizon Galaxy S4 and S4 Active on Android 4.4.2!

Click on Play button above or Click Here to Download High-Quality HD video to your Smartphone or Computer.

For those of you who want to root your AT&T SGH-i337 Galaxy S4, Verizon SCH-i545 Galaxy S4, or Galaxy S4 Active on Android 4.4.2, there’s finally a new root method that will root your S4.  This root method also works on all Galaxy S4 models and does NOT trip Knox!

Towelroot also works on many other Android devices including Galaxy S3, Note 2, and most Samsung Galaxy devices.  Towelroot is very safe to try so give it a try even if you don’t have Galaxy S4.

So, here’s how to do it, you do not need a Windows, Mac, or Linux computer!

After rooting, you can use SafeStrap Recovery to install custom ROMs!

Step 1. Make sure you have Android 4.4.2 in Settings->About phone.

howto-root-att-or-verizon-galaxys4-1

Step 2. Open up a browser on your Galaxy S4 and go to TowelRoot.com.  Press on the Lamda sign and it will download an APK file.

howto-root-att-or-verizon-galaxys4-2

howto-root-att-or-verizon-galaxys4-3

Step 3. Click on the APK file you just downloaded.

howto-root-att-or-verizon-galaxys4-4

Step 4. Hit “Settings”.

howto-root-att-or-verizon-galaxys4-5

Step 5. Hit “Unknown Sources”.

howto-root-att-or-verizon-galaxys4-6

Step 6. Press “OK”.

howto-root-att-or-verizon-galaxys4-7

Step 7. Press “Install” to install the towelroot app.

howto-root-att-or-verizon-galaxys4-8

Step 8. Ignore the Google warning and press “Install anyway”.

howto-root-att-or-verizon-galaxys4-9

Step 9. Press “OK” to open the Towelroot app.

howto-root-att-or-verizon-galaxys4-10

Step 10. Press “make it ra1n”.  Wait about 30 seconds and if your phone doesn’t reboot, try pressing “make it ra1n” again.  If you see a force-close window, try force closing it by hitting “OK”.  Your Galaxy S4 should have rebooted.

howto-root-att-or-verizon-galaxys4-11

howto-root-att-or-verizon-galaxys4-12

Step 11. Once rebooted, download the Superuser APK file and open it with MyFiles app. (Do not download from Play Store as the version is not the latest version!)

Download Superuser APK file

howto-root-att-or-verizon-galaxys4-13

Step 12. Press “Settings”.

Step 13. Press “Unknown sources”.

howto-root-att-or-verizon-galaxys4-15

Step 14. Pres “OK”.

howto-root-att-or-verizon-galaxys4-16

howto-root-att-or-verizon-galaxys4-18

Step 17. Press on “Continue”.

howto-root-att-or-verizon-galaxys4-19

Step 18. Press “Normal”.

howto-root-att-or-verizon-galaxys4-20

Step 19. You will also get a message to disable/remove KNOX, make sure you hit “OK” as that will remove all KNOX apps which will interfere with your root if you don’t do it.  (KNOX is an unnecessary, useless security app you DO NOT NEED, only interferes with root.)

howto-root-att-or-verizon-galaxys4-21

Step 20. Now your Galaxy S4 should be fully rooted, go ahead and download any rooted app like Titanium Backup app and you should see SuperUser pop-up window like seen below.

howto-root-att-or-verizon-galaxys4-22

Congratulations!  You’ve successfully rooted your Galaxy S4 on Android 4.4.2!

How to Root Galaxy S4!

Click on Play button above or Click Here to Download High-Quality HD video to your Smartphone or Computer.

This video was brought to you by AndroidRoot.org. Click Here to See at AndroidRoot.org or Click Here to See on YouTube

For those of you who want to root your Samsung Galaxy S4 Android smartphone, here’s how to do it easily using MotoChopper, a root script used on Motorola Qualcomm devices.

This root method will work on all Qualcomm-based Galaxy S4 running Android 4.2.2 such as T-Mobile SGH-M919, Sprint SPH-L720, US Cellular SCH-R970, Canadian SGH-i337M, Rogers, Bell, Telus, and other Qualcomm S4s.

For GT-i9505, T-Mobile Galaxy S4 SGH-M919, Sprint Galaxy S4 SPH-L720, Canadian Galaxy S4 (Bell, Rogers, Telus), US Cellular Galaxy S4 SCH-R970 root method, see the TWRP Root Method instead. (For Android 4.2.2, 4.3, and 4.4.2)

For Octa-core GT-i9500 root method, see the CWM Root Method instead. (Also Sprint SPH-L720 supported using CWM root method, use CWM method if you are going to install custom ROMs)

For AT&T SGH-i337, Verizon Galaxy S4 SCH-i545, Galaxy S4 Active on Android 4.4.2, see How to Root AT&T/Verizon Galaxy S4 on Android 4.4.2 instead!

Firmware Updates – Due to firmware updates being pushed out, this root method may not work on latest AT&T Galaxy S4 MF3 firmware or Verizon Galaxy S4 ME7 firmware, instead please see How to Root for Verizon Galaxy S4 on Build VRUAME7 or AT&T Galaxy S4 on MF3! [OLD]

For Verizon S4 SCH-i545, you will need to flash a pre-release kernel before following this tutorial and also re-flash stock kernel, see here for details FIRST!

UPDATE: For those of you with T-Mobile’s latest UVUAMDL firmware or Sprint’s latest VPUAMDL firmware, this root method will not work. BUT, you can use CWM or TWRP method below along with kernel fix to root. (See Sprint Kernel fix and T-Mobile Kernel fix)

You can use this root method on Windows, Mac, and Linux/Ubuntu.

This root method also just “gives you root”, does not install custom recovery so it is very easy to also unroot by using universal Android unroot method.

For rooting Galaxy S4 on Mac OSX, see full video tutorial here:

For rooting Galaxy S4 on Linux/Ubuntu, see full video tutorial here:

Step 1. Go to Settings->More->About device then hit “Build Number” about 5-10 times until you see “Developer mode has been enabled” message.howto-root-galaxys4-1

Step 2. Next hit the Back button and you should see a new menu called “Developer options”, hit that new menu button!

howto-root-galaxys4-2

Step 3. Make sure Developer options is checked ON and also check “USB debugging” ON.

howto-root-galaxys4-3

Step 4. Connect a micro-USB cable from your Galaxy S4 to your computer, you should see “Allow USB debugging” window pop-up on your phone, hit “OK”.  If you don’t see it yet, just skip this step and check back on Step 7.

howto-root-galaxys4-4

Step 5. If using Mac or Linux, skip this step as you don’t need to install drivers.  For Windows users, go to Device Manager on your computer and make sure you have something like “Samsung Android ADB Interface” or some type of “ADB Interface”.  If you don’t see it, you don’t have Galaxy S4 USB drivers installed, download and install Galaxy S4 Windows drivers.

howto-root-galaxys4-10

Step 6. Download Motochopper.zip and unzip, you should find a bunch of files in it.

Download Motochopper.zip

For Windows, double-click on “run.bat” to start the rooting script.

For Mac or Linux, type:


cd Downloads/motochopper
cd motochopper
chmod 755 *
sudo sh run.sh

howto-root-galaxys4-5

Step 7. Hit enter to begin rooting.  

howto-root-galaxys4-6

If you skipped Step 4, you should now see “Allow USB debugging” window pop-up on your phone, hit “OK”.

howto-root-galaxys4-RSA-popup

Also make sure to hit “Agree” on your phone if you see “Verify apps?” window pop up during rooting.

howto-root-galaxys4-verifyapps

Step 8. When done, hit Enter and your Galaxy S4 will be rooted and will reboot.

howto-root-galaxys4-7

Step 9. After rebooting, you will find a new app called “Superuser” in your app drawer, congrats!

howto-root-galaxys4-8

Step 10. You can verify you have full root on your Galaxy S4 by downloading and running rooted app like Titanium Backup app.

How to Root Galaxy S4 using TWRP Method!

Click on Play button above or Click Here to Download High-Quality HD video to your Smartphone or Computer.

This video was brought to you by AndroidRoot.org. Click Here to See at AndroidRoot.org or Click Here to See on YouTube

For those of you who want to root your Galaxy S4, here’s another root method using TWRP recovery.

Why another method?

Well, at the time of this video, some models do not have CWM recovery available.  But TWRP recovery is just as good as CWM recovery and installation is nearly identical but using different menus.

You can always switch to CWM recovery after rooting later down the line if you prefer CWM recovery.

This root method works for the following Galaxy S4 models:

  • GT-i9505
  • T-Mobile Galaxy S4 SGH-M919
  • Sprint Galaxy S4 SPH-L720
  • Canadia Galaxy S4 (Bell, Rogers, Telus)
  • US Cellular Galaxy S4 SCH-R970

For rooting Sprint S4 on MF9 firmware, see here.

Step 1. Power off your Galaxy S4 then hold down Volume Down, Center Home, and Power buttons together.

howto-root-galaxys4-twrpmethod-1

Step 2. When you see the warning screen, let go of all the buttons and hit the Volume Up button to enter ODIN download mode.

howto-root-galaxys4-twrpmethod-2

Step 3. Connect a micro-USB cable from your Galaxy S4 to your computer.

howto-root-galaxys4-twrpmethod-3

Step 4. Download TWRP recovery for your Galaxy S4.

Download TWRP recovery

You will also need the following tools and drivers if you don’t have them already so download them too:

howto-root-galaxys4-twrpmethod-4

Step 5. You will need to unzip the ODIN zip file and you will find two files.  Run odin3 v1.85.exe file by double-clicking on it.

howto-root-galaxys4-twrpmethod-5

Step 6. If you see a yellow-highlighted box, you already have Galaxy S4 drivers installed, skip to next step.  If you don’t see it, run the Samsung USB driver exe file you downloaded earlier then un-plug/re-plug your micro-USB cable to your Galaxy S4.  You should see yellow-highlighted box now.

howto-root-galaxys4-twrpmethod-6

Step 7. DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING ELSE but click on PDA button and choose the TWRP recovery file you downloaded earlier.  MAKE SURE YOU HAVE DOWNLOADED THE CORRECT TWRP RECOVERY FOR YOUR GALAXY S4 MODEL!!!

howto-root-galaxys4-twrpmethod-7

Step 8. Hit the Start button and this will flash TWRP recovery onto your Galaxy S4.

howto-root-galaxys4-twrpmethod-8

Step 9. Once you see “PASS!”, you have successfully flashed TWRP recovery and your phone will reboot.

howto-root-galaxys4-twrpmethod-9

Step 10. Once your phone reboots, copy the CWM SuperSU zip file you downloaded earlier to anywhere on your Galaxy S4.

howto-root-galaxys4-twrpmethod-10

Step 11. Next, we will reboot into TWRP recovery we just installed.  Power off your phone then hold down Volume Up, Center Home, and Power buttons together.

howto-root-galaxys4-twrpmethod-11

Step 12. When you see “recovery booting” in blue text on the top-left hand corner of your screen, let go of all the buttons.

howto-root-galaxys4-twrpmethod-12

Step 13. Once in TWRP recovery, select “Install”.

howto-root-galaxys4-twrpmethod-13

Step 14. Choose the CWM SuperSU zip file you copied over earlier.

howto-root-galaxys4-twrpmethod-14

Step 15. Swipe to right to flash the CWM SuperSU zip file.  This will root your Galaxy S4 by installing SU binaries and SuperSU superuser app.

howto-root-galaxys4-twrpmethod-15

Step 16. Reboot system.

howto-root-galaxys4-twrpmethod-16

Step 17. You should find a new app called SuperSU in your app drawer.  Run it once and update the SU binaries if it asks you.

To verify you have full root, you can download and open rooted app like Titanium Backup app, you should see a Superuser request pop-up window.

howto-root-galaxys4-twrpmethod-17

Congratulations, you’ve rooted your phone!

You’ve also installed TWRP recovery, which will allow you to easily backup, restore, and install new ROMs.  Make sure you make at least 1 backup ROM right after rooting.

If you don’t like TWRP, you can usually install ROM Manager from Play Store to flash CWM recovery without using ODIN again easily and also vice-versa back to TWRP by installing TWRP app from Play Store.

Q&A
Q: Why are there two different recoveries CWM and TWRP?
A: Both CWM and TWRP do the same thing, allowing users to backup, restore, and install ROMs.  They are built by different developers with a different interface.
Some people prefer CWM and some people prefer TWRP.
And since CWM recovery isn’t available (at the time of this post) for some S4 models, you can still get full features of CWM recovery using TWRP.

Q: After installing recovery and reboot, I don’t see TWRP recovery just stock recovery, what’s happening?
A: That’s caused by some stock firmwares writing over the TWRP recovery. To get around it, run ODIN again to flash TWRP, then pull battery out when you see “PASS!” in ODIN, then boot straight into recovery by putting the battery back on and using the buttons, you should see TWRP recovery now!

Q: Root is not working on my T-Mobile Galaxy S4 with UVUAMDL firmware!
A: T-Mobile has put a new SetUID restriction on the kernel, you can fix by flashing UVUAMDL kernel with SetUID restriction removed.

Q: Root is not working on my Sprint Galaxy S4 with MDL firmware!
A: Sprint has put a new SetUID restriction on the kernel if you have VPUAMDL build number, you can fix by flashing VPUAMDL kernel with SetUID restriction removed.

How to Root Galaxy S4! [CWM Method][GT-i9500][GT-i9505][T-Mobile][Sprint]

Click on Play button above or Click Here to Download High-Quality HD video to your Smartphone or Computer.

Here’s “CWM Method” of rooting your Samsung Galaxy S4.

Currently, this root method is only for the GT-i9500, GT-i9505, AT&T SGH-i337, Sprint SPH-L720, and Korean (E300S, E300K, E300L) until we have a stable, working CWM recovery for other models.

This root method works on Android 4.4.2 KitKat, 4.3 Jelly Bean and Android 4.4.2 KitKat for all models except AT&T SGH-i337.  For SGH-i337, this root method works on 4.3 Jelly Bean and Android 4.4.2 KitKat.

For GT-i9505, AT&T SGH-i337, T-Mobile, Sprint SPH-L720, and Verizon, you can also use the other root method here.

For rooting Sprint S4 on MF9 firmware, see here.

Step 1. Power off you Galaxy S4 and hold down VolumeDown, Center Home, and Power buttons together for about 5 seconds.

howto-root-galaxys4-cwmmethod-2

Step 3. Connect a micro-USB cable from your Galaxy S4 to your computer.

howto-root-galaxys4-cwmmethod-3

Step 4. Next, download CWM recovery for your Galaxy S4.  (Currently only GT-i9500, AT&T, and Sprint is available but I will be updating the page as soon as stable ones are available for other models.)

Also download ODIN, Samsung USB Drivers, and SuperSU Zipfiles.

howto-root-galaxys4-cwmmethod-4

Step 5. Unzip ODIN and run the odin3 v1.85.exe file by double-clicking on it.

If you see a yellow highlighted box like shown below, you are good to go, if not, double-click on the Samsung USB drivers EXE file you downloaded earlier and install drivers, then unplug/re-plug the micro-USB cable to your phone.  You should see yellow highlighted box.

Next, choose PDA, then browse to the CWM recovery you downloaded earlier for your Galaxy S4.  (It’s a file ending in .tar)  Hit Start to begin flash CWM recovery to your phone.

howto-root-galaxys4-cwmmethod-5

howto-root-galaxys4-cwmmethod-13

Step 10. Once in CWM Recovery, choose “install zip from sdcard” and hit the Power button.

howto-root-galaxys4-cwmmethod-14

Step 11. Choose “choose zip from sdcard” and hit the Power button.

howto-root-galaxys4-cwmmethod-15

howto-root-galaxys4-cwmmethod-18

Step 15. This will install su binaries and SuperSU superuser app on your phone.  This essentially “roots” your Galaxy S4.

howto-root-galaxys4-cwmmethod-19

Step 16. Go back to main menu and choose “reboot system now”, then hit Power button.  Your Galaxy S4 will reboot.

howto-root-galaxys4-cwmmethod-20

Step 17. Once rebooted, you should find SuperSU app in your app drawer.

howto-root-galaxys4-cwmmethod-21

Step 18. Run the SuperSU app once and update the binaries.

howto-root-galaxys4-cwmmethod-22

howto-root-galaxys4-cwmmethod-23

Step 19. You can verify you have full root by downloading and opening rooted app like Titanium Backup app (which I highly recommend for backing up/freezing/un-installing your apps).

Q&A

Q1: Why did you use an older version of SuperSU?
A1: I like the older version of SuperSU which doesn’t have delay but you can easily update to the latest version of SuperSU by updating it in Play Store or even switch to SuperUser app.

Q2: After installing recovery and reboot, I don’t see CWM recovery just stock recovery, what’s happening?
A2: That’s caused by some stock firmwares writing over the CWM recovery. To get around it, run ODIN again to flash CWM, then pull battery out when you see “PASS!” in ODIN, then boot straight into recovery by putting the battery back on and using the buttons, you should see CWM recovery now!

Q3: Root is not working on my T-Mobile Galaxy S4 with UVUAMDL firmware!
A3: T-Mobile has put a new SetUID restriction on the kernel, you can fix by flashing UVUAMDL kernel with SetUID restriction removed.

Q4: Root is not working on my Sprint Galaxy S4 with MDL firmware!
A4: Sprint has put a new SetUID restriction on the kernel if you have VPUAMDL build number, you can fix by flashing VPUAMDL kernel with SetUID restriction removed.
