Try Android L Apps on Your Device

Over the last few days, most of our news has been related to Android L. This upcoming upgrade is quite a big deal for all Android users. The Developer Preview has already been launched for Nexus 5 and 7 (2013), allowing users of those two devices to test drive the new OS a bit early. However, not everyone owns a Nexus 5 or 7.

Since most of us can’t wait for its official release, XDA Senior Member ivan123 posted a full system dump with wallpapers, fonts, ringtones, boot animation, and of course built-in applications from Android L. All files can be downloaded as a bundle or individually, so it’s up to you to decide what suits you most. Some apps are already proven to work with KitKat or Jelly Bean, while others (such as Chrome and Google Earth) still have problems and force close.

If you’re looking for some of the L goodies, head over to the original thread and give these files a shot. And if you want to learn more about Android L, check out its continuing coverage here on the XDA Portal.

Most manufacturers have moments of greatness and moments of decadence, and in the past few years we've some of our favorite companies' tables turned. Some are stagnating, some are struggling, some lack direction. Despite this, we often hold them dear to our hearts. Many of them could use a hand, be it with design, marketing, or other tasks. If you could help out an OEM and take it back to its golden days, which one would it be?

Root T-Mobile S6/Edge on 5.1.1 Without Tripping Knox

If you purchase phones from a carrier, you may be no stranger to the difficulties involved in rooting and installing a custom rom, recovery and kernel on such a carrier locked device. Add to this the extra layer of security that Samsung adds in the form of the Knox counter on its devices, and one can only imagine the roadblocks for enthusiasts who want to play around with their device without losing warranty in the process.
