Temp Root Achieved for HTC Flyer

It looks like despite all the woes that HTC is facing, people have not gotten discouraged from getting their products. The latest lineup of devices, most of them being equipped with new versions of Sense are hitting the shelves left and right and as a result of that, our devs are getting new toys to play with. You may have read already about a temp (perma-temp) rooting method, which was developed for the HTC Sensation and EVO 3D and that enables some root functionality to the devices (busybox, SU, allows installing unsigned apps, etc). However, the root does not allow for custom rom or kernel flashing as of yet. It seems that after messing with several other methods, XDA member Elim has found out that the same tool used to root the Sensation and EVO 3D can indeed be used for the HTC Flyer and its variants. Keep in mind, once again, that this will not allow you to flash any custom roms, but it will allow you to remove bloatware and make your device a bit more vanilla.

Please leave some feedback behind if this worked for you.

1.3 Use fre3vo tool
After some changes and with the help from agrabren we got successful temp root rights. Until now we found with this tools the following exploits:

  • HTC EVO view 4G: last version contains exploit
  • HTC Flyer WiFi 16GB: exploit at adress 38126600:a00
  • HTC Flyer 3G 32GB: exploit ad address 38125e00:1200

You can find more information in the original thread.

Open War for Open Android: Antitrust for Cyanogen?

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...

What Do You Do with All of Your Old Photos?

Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us.

Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
