After months of anticipation, both the Samsung Galaxy S6 and HTC One M9 have finally been unveiled. Now that we have all seen both of the devices in all their glory, many of us have some decisions to make. Which of the two beasts do you prefer: the Galaxy S6 or the One M9? Let us know which device you plan on buying and why!
Android CF-Root Kernel for Galaxy S I9000
If you are developing and have this Android device, XDA Moderator Chainfire brings CF-Root for the JPx firmwares, a much simpler root method including the following features: Root, superuser 188.8.131.52, busybox 1.15.3 or 1.17.1, “2e” recovery (can flash unsigned update.zip’s) and integrated fix for ClockworkMod’s nandroid (184.108.40.206). In the own words of the developer: “THIS IS NOT A ROM – it is only a kernel. You need to have the JPx firmware already on your device. You do NOT need to wipe anything for this patch. You DO need to read the instructions.
MAKE SURE YOUR PHONE CAN ENTER DOWNLOAD MODE USING THE KEYCOMBINATION WHILE BOOTING BEFORE FLASHING CF-ROOT (or anything, really)”.
If you are not familiar with this language, probably it´s better to stay away from this beta release.

It took some hacking, but here it is, CF-Root for the JPx firmwares. It’s a much simpler root (to use) then the other methods available: a single PDA flash through ODIN is all there is to it.

– Superuser 220.127.116.11
– Busybox 1.15.3 or 1.17.1 (if not mentioned in the filename it is 1.15.3)
– “2e” recovery (can flash unsigned update.zip’s)
– Integrated fix for ClockworkMod’s nandroid (18.104.22.168)
This is a beta release. I’ve tested it in a few situations, doesn’t mean it works for you. I have tested it on top of other installed rooting methods as well as from a clean flash, but there could still be issues, as most of you seem to have used a different root package than I have.
– Flash CF-Root-JPx-vX.X.tar (from the attached zip) as PDA in ODIN, without repartition. Done.

Samsung's Unpacked Event has now come and gone through Mobile World Congress 2015, and we've got a good look at what could be the most advanced phone of the year thus far. The event started shortly after its scheduled time at 12:30PM today and the only devices shown were the Galaxy S6 and its Edge variant, both of which pack an impressive amount of features, spectacular internals and an all-new beautiful design. The show began with a quiet voice whispering to...
Each year, smartphone makers attempt to one-up each other in features and specs, but time and again these improvements feel incremental rather than revolutionary. Samsung hopes to break this trend with a new hardware and software design philosophy, and press details of the new-and-improved cameras shared by the S6 and S6 Edge show that they are off to a great start. Once you get past the curved displays and wraparound Gorilla Glass 4, the most striking feature on these slabs is the...
