[FTF] Sony Release Open Source Files for Latest Xperia Z1 14.4.A.0.133 Update
Just yesterday, the Sony Xperia Z1 began receiving a somewhat unexpected update to software version 14.4.A.0.133. Building on the previous 14.4.A.0.108 release, which itself already brought the device up to the latest Android 4.4.4 release. However, the update still rolled out, starting in several European countries such as Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, Greece, and Poland.
Now, just one day after this latest .133 build started making its way out to consumer devices, Sony has uploaded the GPL-mandated kernel source code to Sony Developer World. News of this was originally announced via the Sony Developer World Twitter account, and this expedient release is nothing but good news for kernel and ROM developers on the device.
We still don’t have a solid changelog for the update, but both the update and the open source files are now available for those who wish to give it a go. You can get in on the open source files for 14.4.A.0.133 by heading over to the Developer World page. And if you’ve not yet installed the latest 14.4.A.0.133 FTF onto your device, you can head over to the Xperia Z1 FTF Mega Collection firmware thread to get in on the latest update.

But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...
The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....
This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place! When we get so involved in our...
