Secure Your Android Device with Master Key Dual Fix – XDA Developer TV

Whether you want to admit it or not, Android is not always as secure as it could be. But thankfully, good people find the security flaws and report them. Google then patches the vulnerabilities. Then, we hit a roadblock. If you are on a stock ROM, you usually have to wait for your carrier to roll out an update for your device to get the patch. Since rolling out updates doesn’t lead to new phone sales, some carriers don’t offer updates in any reasonable amount of time, or sometimes not at all.

TK shows off how to install the patch and the required Xposed framework, so check out this video.

Back in 2011, when the world of Android was being awed by the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S2, a little modification made its appearance...

HTC One M8 Owners: Upgrade to the M9, or Skip?

While HTC's latest flagship brings many new features, the aesthetic design of the device remains largely untouched in comparison to its predecessor. Many Android enthusiasts throughout the community were expecting a large redesign of one of the most beautiful handsets ever released, but what we got is something more along the lines of an 'HTC One M8S".
