Enable Infinite Homepage Scrolling on Note 4 (rooted Android 6.0)

So! My loyalty to the Note 4 at this point is borderline fanatical. Samsung has YET to make a better phone, in fact, neither has Apple. I’ve recently bought a Verizon Note 4 to replace my T-mobile Note 4, since Verizon allows me to use both T-mobile and Verizon, but the T-mobile version wouldn’t work on the Verizon network. If I’m going to replace that phone that’s been acting up, I might as well replace it with a better one.

After a ton of pain, I’ve managed to figure out exactly which ROM, I should install, what’s working in what version of the ROM and so on… Eventually, I just went with a nearly stock ROM that’s simply rooted.

Everything looked normal an kosher, until I’ve noticed that the homepage doesn’t do infinite scrolls. I’ve found a lot of instructions online, but it no longer really covers the file structure of Android 6.0.

I’ve decided to write a post, and if it happens to help someone out there, then awesome.

-Open up your file manager, in this case it’s Root Explorer
-Go to /system/csc/others.xml (hold down on others.xml and open in text editor)
-Scroll down to the end (on my phone, the line we are looking for was the third or fourth from the bottom)
-Find the line that looks like this:

<Cscfeature_Launcher_DisabledPageRotation>true</

-Change “true” to “false” (without quotes). It should now read:

<Cscfeature_Launcher_DisabledPageRotation>false</


Citing my sources, but saved it for last, since I didn’t want to force my readers to read through things they didn’t want to:

The solution is actually an interpreted combination of:
