XDA Elite Recognised Developer AdamOutler is at it again. Following up on his Verizon Note II root method, he continues to roll out safe and easy-to-deploy root exploits via CASUAL, the Cross-platform ADB Scripting, Universal Android Loader.This time, the device in question is the AT&T Samsung Galaxy S III.
One of the major benefits of CASUAL is that it is cross platform. Adam has been spending a great deal of time in bringing support for many different platforms to a consistent level. If you have him circled on Google+, you may have already noticed him tackling the OS X upgrade process in an effort to test these exploits for Mac users. That’s where you come in. Adam is especially keen to hear from u. . . READ ON »

During his presentation at last years Big Android BBQ, XDA Elite Recognized Developer AdamOutler gave a presentation and showed off a box that was able to automatically root a phone. Dubbed the “Root All The Things Box,” all you needed was to plug in a device and watch the LED indicators on the box. And in a couple minutes the device would be rooted. This magic box was built on a Raspberry Pi.
In this episode , Adam shows how to manually turn on and off GPIOs on the Raspberry Pi. This is the same technique used in the operation of the Root All the Things Box. According to Wikipedia, General Purpose Input/Output or GPIO, is a generic pin on a chip whose behavior, including whether it is an input or output . . . READ ON »

The Raspberry Pi is not only one of the most unique devices on XDA, but it is also among the most popular with developers. So far, we’ve brought you news of Raspberry Pi getting ICS, ADB support, and a supercomputer was built out of a bunch of them and Legos. It’s even made our Best “Other” device of the year. There is so much you can do with the little thing. Now, you can host websites as well.
XDA Senior Member marty331 wrote a tutorial on how to host a website on the Raspberry Pi. The list of required software and hardware is quite long, but the process itself is pretty simple. To get started, you’ll need:

The Raspberry Pi is an interesting little device. Designed to be a learning and education tool, it has a fairly large community and a loyal following due to its simple design and low price point. Now, thanks to some researchers at the University of Southampton, 64 Raspberry Pi’s have been coupled together with cables and Legos to form the perfect small scale computing cluster.
That’s right, Legos. Those little building blocks that have captured many a child’s heart and Raspberry Pi’s (which have captured many of those same children’s adult hearts) have been combined into a networked computing cluster. While the exact use for the devise has yet to be revealed to the general pu. . . READ ON »

This has been another great week at the XDA Portal. XDA Developer TV Producer Jordan covers all the news you need to know to keep up-to-date on mobile phone developments. Jordan mentions the Raspberry Pi getting ADB. Jordan mentions this week’s XDA Developer TV Videos, with XDA Developer TV Producer Lance continuing his Windows App series and XDA Developer TV Producer TK reviewing FTP Server Ultimate.
In Jelly Bean news, Jordan mentions Android version 4.1.2 available for the Motorola Defy and Defy+. Finally, Jordan talks pairing an Xbox 360 controller with your Nexus 7. Pull up a chair, and check out this video.

There are several small PC kits for people to have computing power in the palm of their hands. Many of these are actually, low powered devices usually loaded with Android or some kind of Linux distro, whose sole purpose of existing is to—well, we are still not sure about that one, but it certainly fills a size gap in between laptops and tablets. That said, not a single one of these ultra-micro-small PC kits compare in popularity to the infamous and nearly impossible to get Raspberry Pi. In fact, just yesterday we gave the device its own home here on XDA.
The Raspberry Pi has gained so much steam over the last few months that it has brought together developers from across XDA to discover the secrets it holds. This i. . . READ ON »

Last week, we added forums for a couple of devices that stood out in their own unique way. These were, of course, the Intel-powered RAZR i and the relatively diminutive Galaxy S III Mini. This week, we have a few new forums to add as well.
To start things off, we have the Raspberry Pi due to popular demand. While not exactly a “mobile device,” the device features an architecture extremely similar to typical smartphone hardware. Furthermore, the excellent price and high degree of hackability only serve to sweeten the overall package and make it a must-have for any gadget lover.
Next, we have the LG’s late 2012 flagship phone, the Optimus G. Powered by the top-of-the-line quad-core Q. . . READ ON »

Our friend Jordan loves rehashing the news so much that he did it twice for us today. After some technical annoyances and a snazzy haircut, Jordan finally gets a video to complete successfully. Today, Jordan gives a quick update of the awesome news that appeared on the XDA Portal like how CyanogenMod 10 was unofficially ported to the HTC G1.
Jordan mentions the HTC source petition and the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 rooting guide articles. Finally, Jordan mentions the Raspberry Pi’s upcoming update to Ice Cream Sandwich and XBMC ported to Android. What are you waiting for? Hit play!

Late last year, we added the Hardware Hacking forum to help spawn discussion between developers and users in hacking the latest hardware platforms. Over the past year, the tech world has seen a number of new hardware platforms enter the marketplace like the Kickstarter project Equismo Smart TV and the Raspberry Pi. All of these provide a number of advantages including portability and hackability. The Raspberry Pi has stood out as a great option for many different uses, from being a Linux desktop to a Media Center and more. Android has been a seemingly obvious choice for the Pi, giving someone all of the advantages of an Android smartphone in a micro-desktop form factor and a cheap price tag.
