MultiROM Ported to the Moto E

Few categories of Android development are as intrinsically interesting as the ability to boot into multiple operating systems. Multiboot, as it’s most commonly known, allows one to do exactly this. The most popular implementation of multiboot that we’ve seen on the Android platform comes in the form of XDA Recognized Developer Tasssadar‘s MultiROM. MultiROM has been officially and unofficially ported to a wide variety of devices. Today, one more device has been added to the list, the popular and wallet-friendly Motorola Moto E.

The unofficial MultiROM for the Moto E port comes courtesy of XDA Senior Member percy_g2. As is the case with other implementations, users are able to boot into any Android ROM, as well as other OSes that may eventually be ported to the device.

There are unfortunately a few issues with the modification at present. For starters, touch support does not work yet, so users must use the volume keys to navigate and select OS choices. This, however, will be fixed in an upcoming release. In addition to the lack of touch support, it’s currently unknown if booting from SD card works. Internal has so far been tested successfully, but external may not work as planned.

As always, make sure you have a solid backup before messing with this experimental modification. But if you’re willing to take the risk, head over to the MultiROM for the Moto E thread to get started with your multiboot fun!

Samsung Galaxy S6 To Receive Major Camera Update

When the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were launched, they became the prime focus for all discussions as Samsung took a break on their traditional design philosophy and opted for something that their flagship lineup hadn't seen before. But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
