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?
Motorola XOOM Now Rocking 4G-Capable Rooted 3.2.2!
The development world never sleeps, at least not on XDA. Immediately after receiving the 3.2.2 OTA yesterday, XDA forum member AceXMachine promptly provided the stock images to fellow XDA forum member solarnz. Does that name sound familiar to you? It should. The Tiamat team member has plenty of ROM, kernel, and recovery work under his belt.
Now, the developer provides us with a pre-rooted version of the stock images that can be applied to any device regardless of model or country of origin. One caveat to keep in mind is that for devices that have not yet been upgraded to 4G hardware, only WiFi connectivity will be operational. In order to streamline the process for everyone, the installation procedure weighs in at just 5 simple steps.
Straight off the 4G Xoom devices this morning (Thanks to AceXMachine for grabbing the images for me), I present to you the 3.2.2 Stock + Rooted rom!!! I haven’t had a chance to figure out what is actually different yet with 3.2.2.
NOTE: This can be flashed on any device, however the 3g/4g network connectivity will ONLY work on the 4G xooms. Everyone else will be on wifi.
And yes, this comes pre-rooted.
- Download the rom
- Place it on the sdcard
- Reboot into recovery
- Perform a factory reset (wipe data+cache)
- Install the zip file.
For those looking to get some 4G action or just update to the latest rooted version of your favorite tablet OS, continue on to the development thread.

To me, applications like this one are really important for school students. I bought my first significant Android the same year I began my Physics degree at my university, and immediately I realised how tremendously helpful it was. From accurate graphing applications to TI emulators (don't judge me, the real thing costs crazy amounts here!), passing through giants like Wolfram and MATLAB Mobile, there were a lot of tools for one to excel with. In fact, I'd say that without Android I wouldn't have chosen...
XDA Recognized Contributor Albe95 has shared with us what looks to be Galaxy S6 applications. The ones he's provided are the GearManager, the Optical Reader, GeoNews and Kids Mode. The applications are available for download through the links in the opening post, but keep in mind it is likely that they might not be compatible with your device. There's also new information about more applications and system interface features revealed in the same thread: The alleged S6 statusbar and panel are ported to the...
