Rooting, Unrooting, and Flashing Guide for Optimus 3D

Once a mobile device earns its tenure, there often comes a point when someone compiles all of the great development work into a simple, easy-to-find post. In addition to aiding contributors to better help new users, these compilation threads even serve as a quick reference for experienced users looking to snatch up  a tool or a root method.

XDA Recognized Developer The Dark Lestat has done exactly this for the LG Optimus 3D, thanks to a thread with a variety of tools and instructions to help, well, pretty much anyone. The list of tools present is pretty much your starter kit if you’re interested in rooting and modding your Optimus 3D, including the latest one-click root method, the LG flashing utility for flashing stock firmwares, and Recovery Manager. Instructions on how to use all of them are included as well.

Additionally, there’s a micro guide on changing one’s APN. This guide is still a work in progress, so there’s bound to be even more tools and tutorials to come, so users of the Optimus 3D would do well to bookmark the thread and check up later.

For additional information, many, many download links and full instructions on pretty much everything, check out the compilation thread.

ITaaS – Identity Theft as a Service with FileThis

It's not often I look at a product or service and say "I really really hope this isn't real, and it's an elaborate fake". Alas, this day has come. It's time for a look at something which cropped up on my radar today, namely a service called FileThis. I won't do them the search-engine-ranking honor of providing a direct link to their site, but a quick search will find them, and their app on the Play Store and iTunes store....

Do You Prefer Physical or on Screen Buttons?

More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative. However, there are still a few OEMs (we're looking at you, Samsung) that have preferred to keep things a bit more traditional. Tell us which way you prefer and why.
