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.

Open War for Open Android: Antitrust for Cyanogen?

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...

What Do You Do with All of Your Old Photos?

Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us.

Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
