Samsung Galaxy S Advance Gets its First Custom Recovery

When a device is first rooted, it usually doesn’t take very long for a custom recovery to appear as well. In many cases, root and recovery are released simultaneously. Of course, sometimes it takes a little longer than usual to get something working on a device and thus users may have root but no easy way to install things like custom ROMs, custom kernels, or modifications that could make the device even better. For Samsung Galaxy S Advance owners, after a long, long wait, you now have a custom recovery.

XDA Forum Member diego-ch, along with the help of other developers, has released a kernel that also packs the latest TeamWin Recovery Project recovery on it. As with most Samsung devices, the way to install the kernel is through either Odin or Heimdall. A word of warning: Installing the kernel will increase your flash counter. Aside from having a functional custom recovery, the kernel also adds CIFS support. If you’re a Galaxy S Advance owner and you’ve been looking to flash some easily, check out the original thread.

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...
