More Devices, More Love, No Triangles – Triangle Away Reaches v2.05
Unless you have been living under a rock, you know what Triangle Away is. If you don’t, Triangle Away is a way to reset the flash counter on Samsung devices. That’s right. In their infinite wisdom, Samsung decided to keep track of the number of times you flash custom firmware to your device. Obstinately, this is to allow them to deny warranties and blame the hardware issues on unauthorized firmware. The logic seems flawed with the solid firmware available on XDA.
Recently XDA Elite Recognized Developer Chainfire released an update to his Triangle Away application, ticking the version number to v2.05. This latest update adds support for the Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE GT-I9305 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 LTE GT-N7100. Chainfire says that this update should work on various Qualcomm-based Samsung devices. Chainfire could use your help to determine which of the Qualcomm-based Samsung devices this works on that haven’t been identified.
On October 9th the new 5.5 inch screen wielding Samsung Galaxy Note 2 GT-N7100 was added to the supported devices list. Since our last Triangle Away article support has also been added for the Samsung Galaxy S3 SHV-E210K, Samsung Galaxy S3 SHV-E210S, Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N8000 10.1″ 3G and Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N801x 10.1″ Wi-Fi.
Check out the application thread for more information and to help Chainfire find out what devices this latest update works on.

QuickPic, Google Photos, and the other mainstays treat raw images like they don't exist. This rundown seeks to fill the void and give you full control over your precious pictures....
While the majority of the top apps have already incorporated Google's newest design language, there are still very many apps that are in need of some Material Design love. Which apps do you think are most desperately in need of an update?
