This wonderful Geek-Christmas time of the year is back once more, promising a lot of exciting reveals from big manufacturers such as HTC and Samsung, but also some pretty gems teased by other smaller OEMs. What kind of exciting products will we see? While we've got a lot of leaked information from the highly expected S6 and M9, there is still a lot to learn about both - and about everything else that will be shown. What kind of trends will...
TWRP 2.1 for the T-Mobile G2x and LG Optimus 2x
The LG Optimus 2x was the world’s first dual-core cell phone. Similarly, the carrier-branded T-Mobile G2x variant was the carrier’s first dual-core phone. It launched with great expectations, but fell miserably short for many users. Luckily for G2x owners like myself, we have XDA-Developers.
The most recent addition to the list of device-saving mods is the TeamWin Recovery Project recovery by XDA Recognized Developer helicopter88. Unlike other aftermarket recoveries, TWRP was built with ease of use and customization in mind. They started from the ground with AOSP recovery and added all the standard recovery options, and then added a slew of their own. First, it is entirely controlled by touch—no more wear and tear on those hardware keys! Additionally, the GUI is fully XML-driven and can be themed. Just about anything can be changed to one’s liking.
If you’re a G2x owner and are ready for a totally different recovery experience, you can get started in the T-Mobile G2x thread. If you have the LG Optimus 2x, you can find the goods for your device in the Optimus 2x thread.
Also, I have thrown together a one-click NVFlasher for the T-Mobile G2x variant to make flashing a breeze. You can find the download link in my post.

Last week, I wrote about the best apps to unleash the raw photographic power of your Lollipop smartphone. All four of those cameras generate lossless DNG images with pounds of potential for apps like Photoshop to unlock, but what if you’re looking to edit or view those pics on the go? QuickPic, Google Photos, and the other mainstays treat raw images like they don't exist. This rundown seeks to fill the void and give you full control over your precious pictures....
While the majority of the top apps have already incorporated Google's newest design language, there are still very many apps that are in need of some Material Design love. Which apps do you think are most desperately in need of an update?
