CASUAL: Motorola RAZR Root Method Unlike Any Other

There’s only so much awesome one can cram into a title, which is why there’s typically several hundred works to describe it underneath. For those who own the Motorola Droid RAZR, you have experienced quite a bit of awesome things in the recent past including some developments that have flung the doors wide open on development. This is no different. XDA Elite Recognized Developer and XDA TV Producer AdamOutler has released a one-click-root method called CASUAL—or Cross-platform ADB Scripting Universal Android Loader—for the Droid RAZR, and it’s a truly unique piece of work. While it’s only in beta testing right now, AdamOutler will be supporting this nifty application until bugs are gone and beyond.

Being JAVA-based, CASUAL is compatible for the big three—that would be Windows, Mac, and Linux. The application itself uses a nice, easy to understand interface, and the popular MotoFail root exploit. Since it is beta, Adam asks anyone who experiences problems to post logs in the thread to aid in debugging. And, of course, any suggestions are welcome in thread as well. Along with rooting the device with a single click, the application also gives voice feedback. Beat that, other root methods. As if that weren’t enough, AdamOutler has designed the application so that the .jar can be opened up and the build.properties can be changed to form an entirely different application with different functions. Does it stop there? Of course not. Here are a few scripts AdamOutler threw together that change CASUAL’s functionality to pretty much whatever you want it to be.

Users of the Moto RAZR have been waiting awhile for a slam dunk piece of development to show up, and if this application dunked any harder, Kobe Bryant’s head would explode. Additional information, all the usual disclaimers, download links, instructions, and much more can be found in the development 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...
