Previously I talked about the Pebble Time Kickstarter, and why I thought it was the most practical smartwatch to buy in 2015, and that I decided to be an early backer on Kickstarter. Well as of this morning an interesting development has come from my - currently - favorite smartwatch company. They will release the Pebble Time Steel variant alongside the regular Pebble, instead of say a whole release cycle down the road. The accompanying announcement along with the Steel,...
App Editing Software Virtuous Ten Studio Releases Public Beta
With a lot of tools out there to help users modify, de-compile and re-compile .APK files, there are few out there that seem to offer the complete package. Normally, users would have to grab up a few applications in order to get all the proper tools to work effectively. Well, not long ago, this was a problem that Virtuous Ten Studio was working to correct. With an all-in-one design philosophy, Virtuous Ten Studio aims to be the de facto application for users looking to do virtually any kind of modding.
XDA Forum Moderator and Recognized Developer Diamondback initially ran a private beta for experienced developers comfortable with Smali, and users good at testing and reporting bugs. However, now the software package is ready for prime time testing in the form of a public beta.
A rehash of what this awesome application is capable of shows that the features include:
Never before seen UI
Edit smali code like never before
Communicate with your device with yet to be seen ease
Enhance your workflow with useful additions
And that’s really more of an overview of the features. Users have options ranging from working on multiple .APK and .JAR files to a full help menu for understanding smali code and what each class, call, and goto is used for. With the addition of many third party .APK tools included in the application itself natively, users will also have all the features of those applications as well.
You can also do a world of other things, such as debugging your phone via the built-in Logcat Viewer, consulting the Java source of any smali code, and creating easy backups. With so many features and such a clean UI, Virtuous Ten Studio is looking to make code editing and modification as easy and streamlined as possible.

The LG G Pro Lite D680 is a budget phone that was released in 2013 alongside the LG Optimus G Pro, LG's 2013 flagship device. Unfortunately, it hasn't received much development attention so far… but XDA Recognized Developer laufersteppenwolf has now released an unsecured boot.img along with a CWM recovery. This is despite the bootloader being locked (which means there's no need for you to void your warranty!), and marks the first step towards custom ROM and kernel development for...
