SVN on Your Android Device with OASVN

A long, long time ago, in a Portal post far away, we once covered a topic regarding a SVN guide by XDA Recognized Developer LiquidSolstice. Since then, this wonderful tool fell into darkness mainly due to the availability of things such as repos, nighties, and many other apps (e.g. Goo Manager) available from our devs, which somewhat satisfy the urge to get new builds faster. Having said that, SVN never really stopped being a useful tool for those devs who wanted to use it, mainly due to the speed and ease of use—once you get it going, that is.

With this concept in mind,  XDA Forum Member Red Monkey decided to release a new SVN client, but this time for the Android devices out there. Meet OASVN, which is a fantastic tool for those of you needing the most recent, cutting edge, bleeding latest, most bug-filled versions of software that you can get your hands on. All that without even needing a PC to build it anymore! The client is the only SVN client capable of using virtually any repo (http://, svn://, svn+ssh://, etc).

This effort is a fantastic way to bring more exposure to this quite useful tool and make the mobile experience of flashing even more free! As new features are added, bugs are likely to arise, so if you decide to use this, please do make sure that you report any and all feedback to the dev. Please revert back to the guide linked to earlier in this article to find out everything you need to know if you are unfamiliar with SVN or what it does.

I looked at the svn options on android but they all seemed to be scraping http and not actually using svn, so I decided to build a quick and easy client.

You can find more information in the original thread.

Galaxy S6 Shipping with Different Camera Models

One of the Galaxy S6's most flaunted features is its spectacular camera, its 16MP with an f/1.9 aperture performing excellently in well-lit shots as well as low-light ones, with most reviews concluding that it trounces the camera on the iPhone 6 as well. However, all may not be right in Monde de la Samsung, as earlier today, XDA Member Bananaz came across a surprising detail about the shooter on the S6, and while the revelation is not necessary groundbreaking, it...

No, Android Apps on Windows Mobile Isn’t a Good Thing

As Symbian and Blackberry OS gradually gave way to Android and iOS towards the turn of the decade, the former leviathans found themselves struggling to hold their ground and when all seemed lost, they were forced to resort to extreme measures. While Nokia gave in to an acquisition by Microsoft, RIM's plans were more out-of-the-box and one of their efforts to save the platform whose existence was nigh on end was to build a runtime that allowed Blackberry devices to run apps built...
