LY-F1 Tablet Has Been Rooted

Not many people know about the LY-F1 tablet. It’s an off brand tablet available for just over $100 available at PandaWill.

The spunky 1.2GHz tablet isn’t just cheap, but it seems as though there’s actually a small push in the direction of development. XDA Senior Member web_ninja has found a root method, utilizing the legendary SuperOneClick Root method and says that the method is working on a permanent basis. web_ninja has reported this in hopes that it’ll get a few developers interested in porting ClockworkMod Recovery and possibly releasing some ROMs to help the tablet perform up to par with today’s newer and more expensive models.

Additionally, web_ninja has been kind enough to upload the recovery files. They are in Chinese, so they are unreadable unless you happen to know the language, but web_ninja has personally tested them and confirmed them working. As per the norm, make sure you exercise extreme caution if toying around with your device as rooting always carries the inherent risk of bricking.

For more information, the download links, discussion, or if you’re a developer and what to help out on developing on the affordable tablet, check out the original thread.

Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
