EternityProject RSD Alternative Ported to the Droid 4

We’ve brought you coverage of their work to bring RSD Alternatives to the Droid RAZR, and now EternityProject is at it again. RSD has been known to have occasional issues, leading some to not trust it. This is especially true for Windows users, as the combination of Motorola Drivers, RSD, and flashing to AP Mode has proven troublesome.

Now, users of the Motorola Droid 4 can share similar freedom, thanks to XDA Recognized Developer kholk and crew. They have successfully brought the RSD alternative to the Droid 4. The method is pretty much exactly the same as it was on the Droid RAZR version. Says kholk:

1. Copy the FastBoot package into the ROM you’ve extracted
2. Boot in AP FastBoot Mode
3. Connect your Droid 4 to the PC
4. Execute “FlashME.bat” (Windows) or “FlashNIX.sh” (Linux)
5. Enjoy!

Of course, the best tools are the ones that are also simple, and that’s something that EternityProject has tried to do here. Users will have a choice of downloads between Windows and Linux versions. And while Linux already has an RSD alternative, Windows users will be especially appreciative that there is now an alternative.

Those looking to bypass RSD should head over to the original thread for the instructions and downloads.

Taking a look at the changes made to the manifest repository (which is used to specify the repositories to be downloaded when building Android), it appears there are some new repositories making an appearance. Of note here are new prebuilt repositories for Go, and Ninja. Go is a programming language, created by Google, which compiles to produce...

Send Links to Any Nearby Device with CaastMe

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...
