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!]

Sony’s Emergence in The Middle: Is The Price Right?

Sony’s Electronics Division is not in its best days, and its smartphone products are seemingly an important cause of this. The Japanese giant’s Xperia line has been on the decline in terms of sales, and these past few months have been particularly damaging to the company due to the Xperia Z4’s market performance. Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
