When the Galaxy Note was first announced last year, those in the U.S. had to sit out during its initial debut overseas and were left wondering if we'd see this fabulous 'phablet' show up on our shores.   Many a techies wishes were granted when AT&T started shipping their version of the Galaxy Note compatible with their 4G network but TMobile subscribers were up in arms hoping that the company would come out with a version compatible with their HSPA frequencies, especially when it came to light that the Galaxy Note hardware actually did have the capability of supporting the Tmobile network.  Alas, while we're still waiting for an 'official' release on another carrier we're happy to announce that hacker Tomlin.FHL at XDA Developers has succeeded in devising a hack to let you use a rooted and network unlocked AT&T Galaxy Note. 

Once you have it SIM-unlocked you need to download the modem profile and radio file from another handset and then use ClockworkMode Recovery to flash these files onto your Galaxy Note.  The next step involves rebooting your 'phablet', inserting a T-Mobile SIM and presto...your AT&T Galaxy Note is now able to connect to a TMobile 4G network.  Of course it goes without saying that this entire process is fraught with risks of bricking your phone/tablet and of course it voids the warranty.   But for those risk inclined...and that know what they are doing when it comes to modifying their devices, head on over to the link below and you'll find full instructions and lots of juicy notes and details.
