Real Life Trolling Made Easier with SMSBomb

We have all done a little trolling here and there. Whether it’s heckling a new member about not using the search feature, disagreeing with someone’s opinion on a device, or just having a good time in a ridiculous thread, there’s a time and a place to let the inner troll in all of us out to play. However as stated previously, those places are shrinking.

With that in mind, XDA Senior Member trter10 has made an application using MIT-adopted Android App Inventor that will send mass texts. Not one text to many people, mind you, but many texts to one person. Why is this application useful? It isn’t. However, it can bring about a lot of harmless fun if you use it right.

The interface is simple, write out a text, choose a contact, and you can choose whether to send that text once or up to ten times at once. This makes it very easy to ask someone if they’re angry enough times to actually make them angry. While the name of the game is making people angry, do remember to use a little courtesy. For instance, if there’s someone you know that has to pay for every text they receive, you obviously don’t want to use the app on them. There’s a fine line between being funny and being rude. Also, in some countries spam texting is illegal, so be sure to check your local laws first to assure that you aren’t doing something that could get you in trouble.

For more info, check out the SMSBomber thread. For anyone who’d rather have it in German, XDA Forum Member oaz1 has a German version you can get as well.

Xiaomi Finally Releases Kernel Sources

If you are familiar with Xiaomi, you might have heard that they are not the most compliant when it comes to the General Public License that makes the core of Android open to us. The terms of the GPLv2 state that since the Android kernel is based on the Linux kernel, which is licensed under GPL,v2 Android has to be open-source for everyone to study or modify, and those that modify the Android kernel have to make their sources immediately available for...

The History of Flagships: Part III – HTC

A few months ago, we came up with the idea of presenting the history of flagship devices released by some of the major Android OEMs. In this, we've had the pleasure of bringing you the stories of Sony (Ericsson) and Samsung. Now, it's time for our third and final installment. This is a very special episode, as the OEM I will talk about was heavily connected to Android and the beginnings of XDA as a whole. Yes, I'm talking about HTC, the...
