Elite Recognized Developer Stericson to Talk Root Development at XDA:DevCon 2013

The main benefit to rooting one’s Android device is the ability to run applications that are developed for root users. These applications allow you to take control of your device and do a wide variety of actions not normally permitted or possible without root access. Some of these applications allow you to take entire system-wide backups, change your devices screen density, or even alter the look and feel of your device. There is no doubt that rooting a device has many advantages.

At XDA:DevCon 2013, we are talking all about app development. Scheduled to present is XDA Elite Recognized Developer Stericson. Also known as Stephen Erickson, Stericson has been involved in the Android community since the prerelease of the T-Mobile G1, or since rc19 if we want to go in terms of Android releases. He started out learning how to create themes for Android and then he moved on to hex edits that enabled one device’s apps to work on another device. He finally moved on to developing Android applications and the RootTools library to assist others with creating applications for root users.

As a developer, creating root-enabled applications becomes trivial with the RootTools open source library. Sterison’s presentation will focus on how to use the RootTools library in order to create root applications that your users will love and appreciate.

Sunday Debate: Are Smaller Bezels Better or Worth It?

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience.   With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
