All-in-One Unbrick Package for the Samsung Galaxy Ace

So you were trying to flash a ROM or kernel to your Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830i through ODIN. What was that? Did you say that you (or your cat) accidentally unplugging the device in the middle of the process? While this won’t always result in a bricked device, you can likely get stuck in a state where the device is detected by Odin, but nothing can be flashed. For cases like this, XDA Member brijeshep might have the solution.

This convenient tool bundles together everything you need to restore your device, install a stock ROM, or convert a ROM from a flashable zip to an ODIN-compatible format. The bundled tools include the required drivers, ODIN, Cygwin, SplitFus tool, and direct links to stock firmware downloads. The tool itself guides you through the whole process with a convenient and easy-to-use GUI.

You can find the download link and detailed instructions in the forum thread.

I/O Summary: Google Cardboard Virtual Reality

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
