DFT Team Begin Work on MAGLDR and UEFI for the HTC One

If you ever spent any appreciable amount of time with the venerable HTC HD2, you will undoubtedly be familiar with the name Cotulla. After all, XDA Elite Recognized Developer Cotulla and the rest of the Dark Forces Team developed the vastly powerful MAGLDR bootloader for the device.

As a brief recap, MAGLDR for the HD2 unleashed the full potential of the device, allowing users to easily install an almost limitless number of alternative operating systems, an install an Android recovery, and even play Tetris directly from the bootloader.

Now, Cotulla and the DFT team have begun the journey of bringing similar hackability over to the . Nothing is available just yet, but given Cotulla’s impressive track record, it’s basically only a matter of time. There are no concrete development goals just yet, but possibilities include installing old school Windows Mobile 6.x, running Windows RT and/or Windows Phone 8, and much more. And once MAGLDR is finished for the One, he is planning on working on UEFI.

Make your way over to the development thread to learn more and keep up on the progress. If you own an HTC One, things may get pretty exciting in the future…

Should You Get Wear? Wearer’s Practical Observations

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
