How to Install and Root the Latest Bluestacks

Anyone who’s been into Android for some time has heard of Bluestacks. For those who somehow don’t know, Bluestacks is an Android emulator that can be installed on Windows machines. It allows PC owners to use Android apps on their computers like they can on Android devices, without having to install Android x86. The last time we brought you news about Bluestacks, it was to install the Google Play Store and get custom boot animations. Now, you can have root access as well.

XDA Senior Member mohazia has written up not one, but two methods that will get you root access on your Bluestacks. First, users have to remove Bluestacks and re-install it. The first procedure gives users a pre-rooted /system partition, while the second gives you a more customized experience.

Needless to say, the first method is easier. So if you’re not ready or willing to take the plunge too deeply, this is the method to go with. If you’re more of a hands-on user, the second method may be more for you. In addition, mohazia has included some troubleshooting tips for those who may have issues.

For more info, check out the original thread.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
