The Samsung Galaxy Camera is without a doubt one of the most niche devices to be given a home here on XDA. Half point-and-shoot camera and half tablet, most potential consumers will either love it or hate it. Thankfully for those who love it, you’re in the company of XDA Elite Recognized Developer AdamOutler.
You see, the esteemed XDA unboxer, box maker, and developer extraordinaire has decided to release a root guide for the device, using CF AutoRoot by fellow Elite Recognized Developer Chainfire. To use it simply download and:
- unzip the CF-Auto-Root-gd1-ekgc100.tar.md5 from the zip package to a place you can find it.
- Launch the Odin3 application
- place CF-Auto-Root-gd1-ekgc100.tar.md5 in the “PDA” section
- Put your device into Download Mode:
Remove and replace the battery.
Press “Volume down+Camera+Power”.
- Connect your device to your machine
- click start
Once ODIN has done its thing, you should be rooted. If you own the device and are looking to obtain root, head on over to the original thread and give this a spin.

Recently, we added forums for various new devices. First up is the HTC Droid DNA. HTC’s late 2012 flagship packs powerful specs, a remarkably high resolution screen, and sleek curves to make any gadget lover drool. Starting with the screen, the Droid DNA (and its Japanese cousin, the J Butterfly) packs the first 1080p mobile phone display. Given the 5-inch display size, this comes out to a remarkable 440 ppi. Not just pretty to look at, the Droid DNA also packs a punch thanks to its 1.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro, LTE connectivity, and 2020 mAh battery.
Next, we have the Samsung Galaxy Camera. While not a phone, the Samsung Galaxy Camera is an interesting combination of a high-resolution 16 MP pocket camera and a fully functional Android-powered mobile device. On the Android side, it’s powered by a quad-core Samsung Exynos 4412 running at 1.4 GHz. It has a 4.8″ SC-LCD screen, packing a resolution of 1280×720. It comes with a full gig of RAM, and weighs in at a hefty 305 grams. On the camera side, the Galaxy Camera features a 16 MP BSI CMOS sensor. It also features a 28-48 mm (35mm equivalent) optical zoom lens.
Next up are the Desire C and Desire V. Both devices feature single-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S1 processors, half a gig of RAM, and 4 gigs of internal storage. The Desire V’s processor clocks in at 1 GHz, and it features a 4″ WVGA screen. The Desire C’s processor comes in at 600 MHz, and it features a 3.5″ HVGA screen. Both devices are targeted at new smartphone owners looking for a budget-friendly device.
Finally, we have two US Carrier variants of the Optimus G, LG’s late 2012 flagship phone. Powered by the top-of-the-line quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, the device is certainly no slouch. The speedy processor is backed by 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of ROM, a 4.7″ “True HD-IPS+” panel, LTE connectivity, and a 2100 mAh battery.
