Samsung Galaxy Mini Gets ClockworkMod and RZ Recovery

Users of the Samsung Galaxy Mini have had a lot of excitement. Not long ago, CyanogenMod9 was successfully ported to it and it’s also had CM7 for quite some time.

XDA Senior Member squadzone has kept the train rolling on the development for the Galaxy Mini with his simultaneous release of RZ Recovery and ClockworkMod Recovery. This gives users a more familiar recovery experience and makes the process of making back ups and flashing ROMs a little easier.

Both recoveries work perfectly fine, with the exception of the RZ Recovery being unable to read ClockworkMod backups. The feature list for the RZ Recovery is:

-=overclock settings=-
-=Arbitrary update.zip selection (with folders) (don’t have to rename files to update.zip).=-
-=rom.tgz support (of course)=-
-=Unsigned update.zip support=-
-=ability to wipe system, data, boot, dalvik-cache, battery stats, cache-
-=No automatic backup when installing a rom.tgz=-
-=update.zip from folder support=-
-=Ability to install APK’s, IMG’s, ZIP’s, TAR’s, TGZ’s from the same menu=-
-=Wipe battery statistics=-
-=Battery charging!=-
-=clockwork nandroid restore=-
-=Ability to root any ROM=-
-=12 predefined colors + random color selection=-
-=Rave mode: random color every time screen is redrawn=-
-=preinstall update.zip menu=-
-=battery status (charging status, temperature and charge level) display=-
-=android_secure nandroid / wipe support=-
-=Hold volume keys to scroll=-
-=Touch screen scrolling on some devices=-
-=Can add plugins for new menu=-

Squadzone didn’t post a feature list for CWM, but since it’s one of the most popular recoveries of all time, you can easily find a feature list if need be.

If you own a Galaxy Mini and want to check out the recoveries, you can find the original thread for the RZ Recovery here and the original thread for the ClockworkMod Recovery here. In both threads you’ll find download links and instructions for installation. As with any installation of recovery, there is a small risk of damage to your device, so be sure to back up your device before attempting to flash.

Send Links to Any Nearby Device with CaastMe

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
