Download Stock Kernel For Samsung Epic 4G Touch

Having problems after rooting your Samsung Epic 4G Touch? This is one of the main concerns for new comers into the Android rooting world. Now, thanks to XDA member bubby323 we now have an un-rooted stock kernel available to flash via ODIN.

If you get any issue during or after rooting your phone, you will have a way to restore the kernel back to its original state. The process is simple if you have any previous experience using ODIN.

Let the developer know your feedback please.

Continue on to the original thread.

Open War for Open Android: Antitrust for Cyanogen?

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
