A few days ago we learned that Verizon’s Galaxy S3 version comes with a locked bootloader meant to prevent users from running certain unwanted apps on the device... or from rooting it and/or flashing other ROMs on the handset. However, that doesn’t mean that Verizon Galaxy S3 buyers will not be able to circumvent these carrier-imposed security features. In fact...

Sprint Nexus S 4G

AOSP, also known as Android Open Source Project if you’re not familiar with the acronym, is a very important term for Android devices, as it defines the Android... source code developed by Google, which everyone can customize the way they see fit.

The list of devices officially announced to get Android Jelly Bean soon might not be very long, but, if you want to take the latest mobile OS version for a quick (unauthorized) spin, you can... already do it on a bunch of gadgets.

The Tegra 3-powered versions of the HTC One X and the Samsung Galaxy S3, as well as Sprint’s and Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus, have all been treated with...

Nexus Jelly Bean

The latest (and hopefully greatest) Android OS version, 4.1 Jelly Bean, is only a couple of days old, but independent developers have already done a magnificent job of porting it to some of... the most popular smartphones around.

Nexus-7-Root

Well, that didn’t take long, rooting the Google Nexus 7, a tablet that’s just two days old.

Just a small bit of information today for you Asus Transformer (TF101) fans. If you like the AOKP ROM as much as I do and keep flashing every upgrade, don’t flash Build 39 or 40! Whilst... other devices work perfectly fine with these build versions, the Transformer suffers from bugs in both builds.

Build 39 Issues

This build was catostrophic and wouldn’t even boot. While it wa...

Galaxy-S3 official

Although we’ve been praising Samsung for making the new Galaxy S3 available on all major US carriers at (around) the same time, unlike what happened with the S2 last year, the actual releases... haven’t been that well organized.

And despite the fact that there are many US tech users still waiting to get their hands on the S3, the independent developing community has worked unbelievably...
