Optimus 3D Gets an Easier Root Method

Some of the best mods, hacks, and leaks have been hidden on websites that XDA members don’t usually go to. Thankfully in most cases, those methods do eventually make it to the XDA forums where everyone can enjoy it. Sometimes its something new, like a leak for a device, but sometimes it’s an easier way of doing something we already know how to do. One instance is a Russian website that’s been hiding a much easier way to root the LG Optimus HD.

Posted to XDA by Senior Member Eklovya, the method should bring an easier alternative to root methods already in place. It should also work on most variants of the Optimus 3D, including the LG Optimus 3D Max P720, LG Optimus 3D Max P725 AND LG Opitmus Cube SU870.

The method really is very simple. You download and install an APK, run it, reboot your phone, then run the included root.bat file. After that, it’s a matter of getting SuperSU and the binaries updated, getting Busybox and pretty much anything else you need. Eklovya is also working on getting ClockworkMod recovery support for the variants of the Optimus 3D that don’t have it.

If you’re looking to root and want the easiest way, check out the root thread.

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...
