Did You Brick Your Transformer While Updating? Hope Lies Ahead…
Just a few days ago, it was posted in our forums that the security key for the ASUS Transformer was found, and as a consequence, people were both happy and confused regarding its importance. About 2 days ago, we posted a possible how to guide regarding the possibility of flashing Karmic Koala on the device. This is a process that requires a tool to flash to the nvflash, which requires said keys. Now, XDA member rayman84, who is also responsible for the very first custom kernel developed for this device, comes bearing the ultimate gift for Transformer owners. The dev came up with a tool to perform this kind of flashing, but this one is used for a much better purpose than flashing, and that is to recover from a bad flash. Considering that development of both roms and kernels is on the rise, this tool is bound to become a must have for all Transformer owners.
Hopefully, you will not have to try this app, but if you do, please leave some feedback for the dev.
As most of you probably already know by now, I have released a fully functional nvflash for Transformer yesterday

The device has a Quad...

Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
This month was a big one for Android 5.1.1 updates, as you can see from last week's roundup and the barrage of posts on the portal's front page in the recent past. So far we are seeing the lineup of Wear watches, the Nexus 4, Nexus 9, Nexus 10, Nexus Player, and a handfull of others slowly make their way to the latest Android. While waiting around for updates may be fine for casual users, this is XDA; we have OTA download links...
