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.

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...
