The smartphone landscape is drastically changing its focus. What was once a North-America-centric monopoly of high-specification phones is now merely an afterimage of the past. The meat of the game is elsewhere now; emerging markets looking for good bang-for-buck are what OEMs are increasingly aiming towards, and in this new game the old players must adapt-or-die. Xiaomi has grown at one of the most notable rates in the industry, leading it to become the world's most valuable start-up; and its...
Transformer Security Key Found!!
As you know, many Android devices have protections and encryptions that prevent our devs from having access to certain parts of the system. A good example would be Motorola’s RSA keys which completely locked down the bootloader, thus preventing devs from completely rooting the Droid X as well as a few other devices. The ASUS Transformer is not the exception to this. You are probably thinking now, who cares? Root has been achieved and I am running the latest custom 3.1 with an overclocked kernel, right? True, but you have to remember that the fact that you can do this did not happen by a miracle, overnight, or even by the hand of a single individual. For those of you interested in being able to unlock every Rom that ASUS puts out without even flashing a blob or a custom recovery, then you will probably flip out of your chair when you read what XDA member 9600pro87 posted. Apparently, the security key has been found, and this literally opens up the device to our devs. The key is not useful in its current form but rest assured that our devs will find a way to put this to good use. According to the OP, this will even open the doors to solutions towards reviving bricked devices.
Please leave your comments.
All current device give root forever and an unbricker tool.

There are so many Power Banks out there. However, they are not all the same. Some sacrifice weight for capacity. Others do the opposite. Some come with two ports and some come with more, while others come with less. Some are just batteries with a case around it, but others have some unique features. In this episode of XDA TV, Producer TK reviews the RAVPower RP-WD02 Wireless Filehub & Portable Travel Router. This device is the successor to the RP-WD01...
Most of this article doesn't only apply to Telegram+ -- it just happens to be an example that got a lot of coverage elsewhere, with many authors or commentators putting the full blame on Google, Telegram, the Telegram+ developer or even WhatsApp Inc (eh?). In this article, we'll try to look at the different aspects to provide a clear view of what actually happened, and what can (and hopefully will) improve with regards to developers in general and the Play...
