Get to Know Your Moto E Inside Out with All-in-One Guide

Ever since it was announced and released earlier this year, the affordable and powerful Moto E has been embraced by a very active community here and hence has seen much development. Of course, this is also due to the open nature towards aftermarket support Motorola has given it, as seen with gestures such as the prompt release of the device’s kernel source and Motorola’s official method of unlocking the bootloader. With so much to play with, it is without a doubt that plenty of folks here have went out and gotten a Moto E for themselves, and if you find yourself a new owner of the device, the ‘all-in-on’ Moto E beginner’s guide is a great way to get things started.

Written by XDA Senior Member neo.ank, the tutorial is a very comprehensive rundown of all the basics and more that you’ll want to know about the device and how to mod it. This includes topics such as:

  • ADB and fastboot
  • Bootloader
  • Rooting and custom recovery
  • Flashing custom ROMs
  • Updating your device
  • Troubleshooting

If such lingo and jargon do not seem familiar to you, the tutorial does a great job explaining what they are, as well as provide convenient links to helpful sites which may contain more resources and information.

A tutorial written with the beginner in mind, it is definitely worth checking out if you are new to the device and the aftermarket development community. So if you want to get started, head over to the Moto E primer guide thread.

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...
