Regain Your Privacy (And Peace of Mind) Again With “LBE Privacy Guard” for Android

LBE

Privacy is a paramount concern for many, particularly when all your personal information is stored in a device that has the potential ability to just send it to whomever it feels like it. Love it or hate it, Microsoft decided that this was far too important when Windows Vista was released and implemented a very annoying yet incredibly safe way of using your computer. The OS will ask you for confirmation of virtually every action we try to take on Vista and 7. A similar approach was taken by XDA member eoc who wrote LBE Privacy Guard for our Android devices. This works in a similar way to the aforemention Windows security implementation with the only difference that it will intercept actions being taken the automat. . . READ ON »

Control BSPlayer From The Comfort of Your Android With BSRemote

BSRemote

Lets face it. The only reason why universal controls sell as much as they do is because there are not enough aplications for our mobile devices to control everything that we would like… or are there? Today, we stumbled upon an app called BSremote for Android, created by XDA member gapipro. As its name so obviously implies, the app was specifically designed to control BSPlayer for desktop PC. This app will allow you to sit back in your favorite couch, far from the computer, while you control the playback functions of your favorite media player. Start, stop, forward, even look for clips. No need to even get close to the computer, as long as you have your trusty Android device close by.

Want to Have True, Unrestricted Access to Your Phone? Read On…

system access in linux

The \system in Android is like a forbidden candy for many. A few people will only dare venture in the file and folder mess that represents that particular area of your devices. However, this is where all the fun usually happens. All settings, apks, everything that is of importance to us and to devs lies in there. However, getting there is not necessarily easy or cheap. There are programs like Root Explorer, which will allow you to do a whole bunch of things including mounting, copying, and doing some other fun actions, but as this is a paid program, one has to look for alternatives. Luckily, XDA member AdamOutler has posted a guide to perform all of the above functions and more by using a connection from your compute. . . READ ON »

JTAG Your Captivate – God-Like Soldering Skills Not Required

JTAG Custom

JTAG has been, since the early days of phones, the surefire (and in most cases) the only possible way to bring a device back to life after a flash gone wrong (used to be really common back in the WM days). Nowadays, Android devices are actually rather sturdy in the sense that you can flash virtually anything to these devices and would be easy to revive. This happens to be the case for a lot of Samsung Galaxy phones. However, there are still ways to turn your shinny Galaxy into a shinny paperweight. However, JTAG boxes are usually very expensive and you will likely not be able to make one yourself, or so we thought until we saw this thread made by XDA member AdamOutler. Apparently, the dev is rather familiar with electron. . . READ ON »
