Thank You for Making the BABBQ Device Museum a Success

For those of you who didn’t make it to the Big Android BBQ 2012, we had our traditional signature banner at the XDA booth. However, this year, we decided to have something new: a device museum!

The idea was born to give new uers a “blast from the past,” in the words of XDA TV Producer azrienoch. Various XDA members sent us their old devices, dating as far back as the Motorola Startac from 1989, and including legendary devices such as the HTC Blue Angel, HTC Universal, HTC G1, and some very early Samsung devices. Elite Recognized Developer Adam Outler contributed as well with his personal ADK 2012, which was given to him by our Portal Administrator Will Verduzco after attending Google I/O 2012. Adam also contributed a device that I call The Magic Box, as it was able to root many devices in less than 3 minutes!

In case you missed it, check out our recaps of conferences held by XDA, as well as the rest of our BABBQ2012 coverage. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the museum!

Would The LG G4 Fare Well With The Snapdragon 808?

The LG G4 has a lot to prove, given that last year’s LG G3 was among the best smartphones of 2014. The Global Mobile Awards given out during the time of MWC 2015 named it the Smartphone of The Year (SOTY?) alongside the iPhone 6, and at the time of its release it packed the very best in Android specifications, from the powerful Snapdragon 801 to the class-leading 1440p display. The camera, battery life and feature set were also deemed...

DexPatcher: Patch Android APKs Using Java

You've probably seen or installed modified applications, be it a patched dialer for your resolution or a custom WhatsApp version with added features. How do developers do that, though? A lot of the time, the applications' source code isn't even available, so how does it all work? We'll see that first, then take a look at a new tool that aims to make the process much easier, and finally compare it to the popular Xposed framework to see how they...
