Root and First ROM for the Nextbook Premium 7

Getting first root on some devices is quite a big deal—the kind of news that everyone hears about. However, first root of smaller and more obscure devices can sometimes escape the notice of even the most observant. Such is the case with the Nextbook Premium 7 tablet. XDA Forum Member Dochoppy has taken care of those who own the spunky little 7″ tablet by not only providing a root method, but also the first custom ROM that fixes a few of the short comings of the original tablet OS.

The root method is a little different, but involves the basic concepts of usual rooting. You basically connect the Nextbook 7 to your computer and install a few things from the computer. As usual, be very careful and be sure to follow the instructions exactly, as doing it wrong could end up doing some damage to the device.

The root process also installs one of the two custom ROMs. The features are very similar and include:

Complete and correctly working market. It now correctly associates the tablet to your gmail account allowing purchases from market.
Launcher 3.0 as well as Go launcher ex. Launcher 3.0 was pulled from an rk2918 firmware3.0 update and put into this rom.
Google Calendar is now back and working correctly.
Original Email is back and working correctly.
Included Kindle App
Included Estrongs file explorer.
Both have SU though the Cramfs version cannot write to SW.

Removed Apps Added in last release and return to more of a original rom state.

So for those Nextbook Premium 7 users who were looking for a way to play with their tablet, your time has arrived. Simply head on over to the original thread for additional information, the full method and all the download links.

Samsung Galaxy S6 To Receive Major Camera Update

When the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were launched, they became the prime focus for all discussions as Samsung took a break on their traditional design philosophy and opted for something that their flagship lineup hadn't seen before. 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.
