The UnBrickable Mod – Spreading Like Butter On Hot Toast

This has to be one of the best project across our site in terms of usefulness, complexity, and potential for devices across the world. The UnBrickable mod by XDA Recognized Developer AdamOutler. In case you are not familiar with either the dev or the project, this basically is an attempt at trying to make Samsung devices into immortal devices capable of rebirth even after being bricked beyond repair. You can think of this as JTAG but without the expensive equipment and far more simplified. This project has been a complete success with the Samsung Captivate and the Vibrant and is quickly spreading over to other devices such as the Infuse 4G, the Epic 4G, and the Droid Charge. Below you will find a list of the next targets of this project, so if you can contribute with a broken device, you would be helping the dev tremendously. According to Adam, his next targets will be those equipped with Cortex A9 devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S II.

Keep in mind that this project is still under heavy development and if you are willing to help, the dev has posted several links to relevant information, so that you can understand all the theory behind it. Any feedback and/or help is much appreciated.

others are work-in-progress.  We still need boards for the following devices:

Samsung GT-i9000 SGS
Samsung SGH-T849 Galaxy Tab, Wifi, and Galaxy Tab 7.0 inch
Samsung GT-i9010 Girogio Armani Galaxy
Samsung T839 Sidekick 4g
Samsung SCH-i500 Fascinate
Samsung SGH-i877 Inspiration
Google Nexus S

If you have an Epic 4G, please visit this link and if you have a Droid Charge, please go here.

Sony’s Emergence in The Middle: Is The Price Right?

Sony’s Electronics Division is not in its best days, and its smartphone products are seemingly an important cause of this. The Japanese giant’s Xperia line has been on the decline in terms of sales, and these past few months have been particularly damaging to the company due to the Xperia Z4’s market performance. Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
