If you are familiar with Xiaomi, you might have heard that they are not the most compliant when it comes to the General Public License that makes the core of Android open to us. The terms of the GPLv2 state that since the Android kernel is based on the Linux kernel, which is licensed under GPL,v2 Android has to be open-source for everyone to study or modify, and those that modify the Android kernel have to make their sources immediately available for...
Bug Found in Angry Birds for Android – Lets you Unlock all Worlds
Do you know Angry Birds? If not, you must’ve been living under a stone. It’s a game that has been available for iOS for a long time, and is now available for Android too. Its popularity is huge, thanks to the nice graphics and smooth animations, and of course the nice game play. Some people may find it too difficult in the end though – resulting in new worlds that are being left locked because not all the previous levels are finished. Now for those people, there is a way to unlock all worlds and get access to all levels.
Found this out quite by accident.
- Load up Angry Birds and go to the world select screen.
- Centre a locked world on the screen.
- Push back button all the way out of Angry Birds.
- Load Angry Birds back up and when the “Play” button appears tap the s**t out of that m********r.
- Great success! You should be inside the locked worlds stage select screen.
- To keep it unlocked just pass the first world.
Many would argue whether it’s really fair to do this, but it can be quite useful when you flash or reset your phone, for level data can’t be backed up (Update: Titanium does that job too!)
Yet we’re wondering whether it’s actually a bug, or just the developers’ intend. No matter what, it can be pretty useful!

After teasing products on its forums for a few days, Xiaomi held the anniversary event earlier today and staying true to the...
A few months ago, we came up with the idea of presenting the history of flagship devices released by some of the major Android OEMs. In this, we've had the pleasure of bringing you the stories of Sony (Ericsson) and Samsung. Now, it's time for our third and final installment. This is a very special episode, as the OEM I will talk about was heavily connected to Android and the beginnings of XDA as a whole. Yes, I'm talking about HTC, the...
