Sunshine — the tool that allows you to S-OFF and gain root access a wide variety of HTC and Motorola devices — was updated to v3.1 today to add S-OFF support for HTC’s latest flagship — the One M9.
Just like Nexus devices before it, the Motorola made Nexus 6 is very developer and hacker friendly. Gaining root access on the device is as simple as it was on the previous generation Nexus devices, which when coupled with its open-source nature, instantly makes it a very popular device in the community.
The extremely popular root managing app for Android — SuperSU — today received an update to v2.13 that brings with it support for Android L, Android TV, general code cleanup, bug-fixes and more.
Developers over at XDA forums had already managed to find a loophole in LG’s security system on the G3, which allowed them to easily gain root access on it. Sadly, the method did not work on the CDMA variants of the device, which was a bummer for many.
Android devices come in various shapes and sizes with displays of varying resolution, unlike the iPhone and iPad. However, to save developers the headache of supporting so many different resolutions, Android has its own software density, which is somewhat independent from the resolution of the panel.
The Xiaomi Mi 3 might be an year old but it is a fine handset by all means, especially for the price it retails at in most of the Asian markets. While the development community around the device is not really flourishing because of the lack of source from Xiaomi, it is an incredibly easy device to root.
If you are looking to root the Snapdragon variant of Mi 3, simply follow the steps below.
At the beginning of every month, the CyanogenMod team releases a milestone build, which primarily focuses on stability. Like clockwork, the team has started rolling out this month’s M release of CM11 for all its supported devices.
If you are running CyanogenMod or OmniROM on your device and update to the latest nightly every night, you must have heard about CyanDelta. The app removes the hassle of downloading the full ZIP file of the nightly build and instead only downloads the required portion.
By default, Android lacks the ability to lock access to any specific app. Users are instead required to make use of third-party apps from the Play Store, the majority of which look very clunky and can be bypassed by any knowledgeable Android user (hint: Force stop/Clear Data).
