Official TWRP Arrives on the OnePlus One

Launched a little over a month ago, the OnePlus One has achieved almost mythical status thanks to its flagship-level specifications and fantastic software at a bargain basement price. Extremely limited availability aside, this new device from Oppo offshoot OnePlus seems to be one of the most desirable devices of early 2014—so desirable in fact, that we’ve already seen the One’s CM11S ROM loaded onto its sister device, the Oppo Find 7 thanks to work by XDA Forum Moderator graffixnyc and Senior Member rayfin.

Despite efforts to port the OnePlus One’s software to other devices, we haven’t seen much in the way of aftermarket development for the device. While much of this is due to the device’s limited availability, the lack of a custom recovery didn’t help either.

Now thanks to work by XDA Senior Recognized Developer Dees_Troy, we have an official and fully functional port of the fantastic Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP) for the OnePlus One. TWRP for the OPO comes in at version 2.7.0.0, which offers quite a few new features over previous versions such as faster graphics rendering, mouse support via USB OTG (useful for broken digitizers), and an updated instance of SuperSU. Due to its official status, it should come as no surprise that this port has no currently known issues. But if anything pops up due to its early status, issues should be posted to the team’s issue tracker on GitHub.

If you’re one of the lucky few who already has a OnePlus One, today is a very good day. Head over to the original thread to take control of your device!

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
