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...
Toshiba TG01 is Cooking
The TG01 has been waiting for a ROM tool that can decode the encryption Toshiba has put on their ROMs, and one XDA member has delivered, cedesmith has prevailed where many have failed. His tool was released just a few days ago, and is ready to work. The first ROM that’s to be released for that Toshiba TG01 will bring the cook quite some fame.

Added -chk switch to check a file, doesn’t seam do do much but just edit the file.
Dump now is made using catalog not guessing as previous version.
Added -s to dump OS.nb
Assuming you have tg01.bin:
tgtool -dump tg01.bin
copy /b tg01.wmb1.nbin+tg01.wmb2.nbin+tg01.wmb3.nbin tg01.os.payload
is about the same as:
tgtool -s tg01.bin
nbslipt -data 0x800 -extra 8 tg01.os.nb ( or nbsplit -kaiser tg01.os.nb)
tg01.wmb1.nbin is boot + xid
tg01.wmb2.nbin is imgfs
tg01.wmb3.nbin is is dos partition
one could use osnbtool to dump xid and imgfs from payload if xidump messes your kitchen… but that is as far as I got. I’ve been spending last days trying to cook me something but just made a mess. plz someone cook me something so I can put in the rom file.
If that sounds interesting, the thread has more information.

Furthermore, since our smartphones are always with us, the majority of us end up taking tons of photos throughout the lifespan of our devices. But what happens to all the old photos you take? 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.
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...
