Recovery Available for Huawei Ideos S7 – Let the Fun Begin

XDA member perivarlura has just released his own custom recovery image for the Huawei Ideos S7 tablet. There isn’t an awful lot of development going on for this device just yet, but this is certainly a step in the right direction. For those of you not familiar, the recovery is basically what will allow you to flash anything in the device, perform back ups and more. Don’t confuse this with root, which is the permission to do all of the aforementioned activities.

The only problem with this recovery is that it has a few glitches in the UI, which may throw you off while trying to use it. Nothing major and certainly something that you are bound to quickly assimilate. Any feedback for the dev will be highly appreciated.

As i said before, the S7 kernel does not support framebuffering, which makes the GUI in the recovery a bitt messy. When you move up / down in the menu, it switches between selecting an item on top and an item on the bottom (you’ll see 4 menus in total, but the ones on each horizontal line is a mirror).

This means that it starts by using the lower one, and it uses the top one next, then it goes back to the lower one. Boot it up and you’ll probably see what I mean. This shouldnt cause any problems with the recoverys operation anyhow.

You can find more information in the original thread.

Open War for Open Android: Antitrust for Cyanogen?

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...

What Do You Do with All of Your Old Photos?
