With the recent release of Android One, Micromax and MediaTek released fully buildable kernel source code. This wasn’t always the case for a lot of OEMs building devices with MediaTek SOCs, but luckily this is no longer the case as a lack of proper source code often hinders development greatly.
Development for the Micromax Canvas Magnus shouldn’t be slow anymore, as XDA Senior Member Santhosh M released an official version of TWRP 184.108.40.206 for this 5” beast. The Canvas Magnus or Canvas A117 is a first Micromax device that is officially supported by the TWRP team. This means that this phone will receive continued recovery updates straight from TeamWin.

The HTC-manufactured Google Nexus 9 has just been on the market for just a couple of weeks. As you may recall, Google promised to deliver the newest version of the Android with encryption turned on by default. Luckily, the strengthened security policies didn’t cause any additional trouble with rooting, as the Volantis was quickly rooted by XDA Senior Recognized Developer Chainfire.
With working root, the only thing that was left was a custom recovery. This problem has been solved by the TeamWin Lead Developer and recovery guru, the XDA Senior Recognized Developer Dees_Troy. TWRP 18.104.22.168 handles Android 5.0 Lollipop and its new features perfectly. The new version of TWRP will now automatically de. . . READ ON »

Without any doubt, we can say that the LG G3 is a great device. LG did its very best to provide high level technical specification and make its flagship a “must have.” While end users are likely enjoying stock ROM experience, folks here at XDA are yet to see some custom ROMs prepared by the community. This is all due to a locked bootloader that has been served by the LG.
The LG G3 was rooted back in August, when XDA Senior Recognized Developer jcase and his team discovered a vulnerability and created an exploit allowing users to push the superuser application. Now after a few months, XDA members with any variants of the device can finally around this limitation and flash modified “Bumped!” i. . . READ ON »

In the last few days, we’ve talked about some fairly high end devices receiving official ports of popular ROMs or updates via OTA. Users of mid-range devices usually must be more patient when it comes to waiting for their devices getting developer support. Patience, however, is certainly a virtue.
The HTC Desire 816 was announced at MWC in Barcelona in February of this year and eventually released in April. This 5.5” phablet brought a number of high-end specs into mid-range world. Now, Desire 816 owners have a proper reason for celebration, as XDA Recognized Developer Grarak and XDA Senior Member v_superuser laid the cornerstone for the future development for this device by releasing . . .

Team Win Recovery Project, known more simply as TWRP, is one of the most popular custom recoveries available for Android. It has a nice layout, a ton of features in its easy to use UI, and it gives us the ability to dive into custom ROM world. This recovery is available for most popular devices–no matter if they are big or small. XDA Senior Recognized Developer Dees_Troy and XDA Recognized Developer bigbiff who developed most of the features, have updated the recovery and bumped its version to 2.8. It’s a major release so the list of changes is huge.

Over the past week or so, we’ve talked quite a bit about the first two Android Wear-powered smartwatches, the LG G Watch and the Samsung Gear Live. Last night, we saw a great toolkit for G Watch owners. And just one day before, temp root was achieved on the Gear Live and its restore images were pulled.
Now, the development community has reached the next major milestone thanks to custom recoveries for both devices. The custom recoveries for both devices come in the form of the highly versatile and feature packed TWRP recovery. These images are thanks to TWRP project leader, XDA Senior Recognized Developer Dees_Troy. And as can be expected from official TWRP releases, the recovery i. . . READ ON »
