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 2.3.6.1, busybox 1.15.3 or 1.17.1, “2e” recovery (can flash unsigned update.zip’s) and integrated fix for ClockworkMod’s nandroid (2.5.0.4). 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.

Features
– Root
– Superuser 2.3.6.1
– 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 (2.5.0.4)

Beta
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.

Instructions (short)
– Flash CF-Root-JPx-vX.X.tar (from the attached zip) as PDA in ODIN, without repartition. Done.

You can find more information in the original thread.

Send Links to Any Nearby Device with CaastMe

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
