Pick Apart the Guts of the Moto E with a System Dump

You may recall that we recently added a forum here on XDA for the Moto E. Following up on the highly regarded and wallet-friendly Moto G, the Moto E manages to undercut the G on price, while still offering competent specs capable of delivering a great user experience. Naturally given the device’s performance/price ratio, it is destined to become a crowd favorite here—both for developers and end users. And what do people do with popular devices? Mod them to hell and back, of course!

Although we highly encourage source-built modification whenever possible, many enjoy creating ROMs or mods from existing OEM firmware. For those looking to go down this road for the Moto E, a necessary starting point involves obtaining a system dump. And thanks to XDA Senior Member Saumitra Yadav, anyone looking to modify the stock ROM on the E or port some of its goodies to other devices can now begin their journey. Then, Portal Supporter MihirGosai also decided to help out by providing an additional mirror for the firmware.

If you’re looking to modify the E or want to get in on the porting action, you can get started by visiting the original thread.

[Many thanks to XDA Portal Supporter MihirGosai for the tip!]

I/O Summary: Google Cardboard Virtual Reality

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
