As more developers are updating their apps with Material Design elements, we're starting to see a plethora of beautiful new apps on the Play Store. But which ones are the best? Let us know what you think the best looking apps on Android are and why.
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.
