Lines & Puzzles – Reinventing A Classic

Most of us have at least a few games installed on our phones or tablets to pass the time every now and then. If not, I can only presume that you hate fun and need to lighten up a little. However if you find yourself weary of aimlessly flinging anatomically inaccurate avian projectiles into precariously balanced porcine dwellings, or if you are fed up of sprinting through a seemingly endless jungle pursued by ghoulish wraiths upset about the fact that you have just plundered their temple, why not try a game that actually involves some thought?

Lines & Puzzles by XDA Forum Member mocelet2000 is pretty much three games in one: Standard tic-tac-toe, non-gravitational four-in-a-row, and freestyle gomoku (I had to Google that one). All games are playable on boards of varying sizes up to 15×15, and in a variety of skins such as wood, chalk, sand and neon. As well as the standard game play, the app also offers an extensive selection of puzzling scenarios to test out your skills. Who knows? Maybe one day you’ll be good enough to challenge renowned tic-tac-toe champion Johnny Beauregard.

The app is available for Android 2.2 or above, and looks just as good on either a small or larger screen. Pay a visit to the original thread for more details.

If you could help out an OEM and take it back to its golden days, which one would it be?

Root T-Mobile S6/Edge on 5.1.1 Without Tripping Knox

If you purchase phones from a carrier, you may be no stranger to the difficulties involved in rooting and installing a custom rom, recovery and kernel on such a carrier locked device. Add to this the extra layer of security that Samsung adds in the form of the Knox counter on its devices, and one can only imagine the roadblocks for enthusiasts who want to play around with their device without losing warranty in the process. It's a slippery slope...
