Mac Users Now Have Their Own Nexus 7 Toolkit

Very recently, we brought you news of an awesome toolkit for the Nexus 7. It brought many features and gave Nexus 7 users a stable tool to do a lot of things. However since it was for Windows users only, many Mac users were left longing for their own. Thankfully, there is now a toolkit available for Mac users to easily flash and modify their Nexus 7 devices.

Released by XDA Senior Member techfanatic9, the tool is actually based off of a number of scripts that previously wouldn’t work on a Mac. This is especially helpful for users who aren’t familiar with Nexus devices or Android in general. It provides Mac users with a number of features, including:

* Root Nexus 7
* Restore / Unroot Nexus 7 to Stock 4.1
* Install ClockworkMod Recovery on Nexus 7
* Unlock Bootloader on Nexus 7
* Lock Bootloader on Nexus 7

Given that Mac-compatible root methods often come late, it’s nice to see that the toolkit appear on the Nexus 7. Additionally, techfanatic9 has released each feature as a separate script, meaning that you can download each piece as needed or download the full set to have the full tool. For more information, check out the toolkit thread.

And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
