HTC Thunderbolt Gets ICS Leak – Let the Games Begin!

The HTC Thunderbolt was one of the first LTE devices on Verizon, but quickly faded into the background as the HTC Rezound was launched. HTC however stated via Facebook that the Thunderbolt would be receiving an ICS update by the end of August, along with all of the other promised devices, though we’re coming up on the end of the month, with still no official date of release.

Never fear though as leaks are bound to happen, and according to PhoneNews the official update from Verizon has leaked. The version number in the leak is 7.00.605.2, and you can visit the XDA discussion thread where they’re discussing the leak and where to download it here. There are reports of some running the leak with no issues, and others stating they are having numerous force-close issues, so your-mileage-may-vary. For those running this device, keep checking the Thunderbolt development section for a ROM based on the leak to pop up.

OnePlus 2 Bares All in New Tear Down Gallery

Last year, the launch of the OnePlus One, dubbed 'the flagship killer', visibly shook the foundations of the mobile OEM sphere, with OnePlus delivering high-end flagships specs at a very affordable price.

Focus – An Attractive But Raw Gallery Replacement

Focus is an attractive new app built by XDA members Liam Spradlin and Francisco Franco, the latter being well-known in the forums for his kernels. Focus aims to completely replace your gallery app with some neat tricks, but at a potentially risky time considering that Google has thrown its weight into the photo-organization arena. This is a first draft of the app of course, but we'll pitch it against its main rivals here, namely the popular QuickPic and the aforementioned Google Photos.     The first...
