Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us. Furthermore, since our smartphones are always with us, the majority of us end up taking tons of photos throughout the lifespan of our devices. But what happens to all the old photos you take? Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.
Getting Closer – Perma-Temp Root for EVO3D Finally Stable!
The EVO 3D has been out in the news quite a bit recently and for a good reason. It seems that many of our best devs are going at it full time trying to get past HTC’s latest security implementation to prevent people from gaining root access and S-Off on the device. Not too long ago, a few methods that provided some relief for root hungry EVO 3D users were released but they are still not perfect. They can be reverted and they are partial as they do not allow flashing of roms or kernels. Moreover, the fixes need to be re-applied often. Well, making this perma-temp root a bit closer to something more useful is one of XDA Recognized Developer eugene373‘s goals for this phone. Today, he released the latest incarnation of his root for the EVO 3D, which he deemed as finally stable. Among the fixes, Superuser now works well and re-applying the root if lost is as easy as typing “fixit” on a terminal window.
As of now, the only real thing left to do is to achieve full root on the device, an event which will come to pass soon. For now, please leave some feedback for the dev if this worked for you.
Revamped due to new Method:
~ Superuser Apps now Function
~ If you Lose Root, all you have to do is Open terminal & type SU then type fixit! > No More Rebooting & running the exploit again for R/W on system to get Root back in place
~ Fixed R/O Bug!!
~ R/W is now Forced
~ /system is fully editable now! until reboot that is.
~ Busybox is installed to /vendor/bin
~ hex Edited libext4
~~ This is the Last Update due to it working & Stable ~~

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...
New Privacy concerns have emerged regarding Cyanogen’s latest announcements, primarily the inclusion of email app Boxer and that of a multitude of Microsoft apps, including Bing services, Skype, OneDrive, OneNote, Outlook, and Microsoft Office. The concerns arise when you look at both announcements together. At face value they may appear to be the beginning of Cyanogen’s plan to “take Android away from Google,” however there is certainly something more nefarious occurring. Along side the partnership with Microsoft, Cyanogen also recently announced...
