One Click Root Script for Thunderbolt

After a very nice discussion article regarding the pros and cons of One Click Root utilities, we figured it would be good timing to introduce a script created by XDA Moderator Captainkrtek (and tons of testing by NetForce-TX) to root the newly released HTC Thunderbolt. The script currently has a Windows version and it is, in essence, a batch type program that will guide you through the whole rooting process. The dev has made it simple enough to be rather fool proof, but still recommends to read a bit about it just in case something went wrong. There are a few pre-requisites before you can start playing with this tool, all of which have been listed by the dev in the thread. He is also working on a Linux version for all those Tux fanatics out there, so if you were feeling unloved for not running Windows, stay tuned.

The app has been tested and seems to work fine. However, any and all feedback is much very welcomed.

This is a simple batch file that will guide you in rooting your device.
It is pretty easy to follow along but please take your time and read everything. It has only been tested a few times so please report any errors or issues you find.
Huge thanks to NetForce-TX on IRC for testing along with helping, I owe you!

You can find more information in the application thread.

Taking a look at the changes made to the manifest repository (which is used to specify the repositories to be downloaded when building Android), it appears there are some new repositories making an appearance. Of note here are new prebuilt repositories for Go, and Ninja. Go is a programming language, created by Google, which compiles to produce...

Send Links to Any Nearby Device with CaastMe

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...
