T-Mobile Galaxy Note 2: Allow all apps to run on Multi-View / Split-Screen mode

Finally, after waiting long enough, T-Mobile version of Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (SGH-T889) has got the software update (T889UVALK8) to activate Multi-View/Multi-Window feature. However, by default multi-tasking with split screen only work for Samsung’s apps (S Note, Gallery, Messaging, etc.) and Google’s apps (Gmail, YouTube, Talk, and Chrome), that’s not cool, right? Any third-party apps that you download from the play store could not be added to the Multi-Window bar, so you can’t run Instagram and Poweramp on one screen.

 

But for those of you who still want to add unlimited apps to multi-window bar, you can do so by mod your Samsung Galaxy Note 2, as was done by the Verizon version (SCH-i605) by modifying the system apps. We need to gain root access first before modifying multi-view feature on this Smartphone.

    For whatever reason the moment I attempt to install X install my Internet stops. My device status is normal and has not been modded. Its a Lk8 model from t-mobile. If you have any idea why this is happening please let me know.
