TWRP Ported to the Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE

Just a short time ago, we brought you news that the Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE got root and ClockworkMod Recovery. Usually, users would be happy with just that, but having more options is always better. One popular alternative to the venerable is the Team Win Recovery Project. Now thanks to XDA Forum Moderator arrrghhh, the Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE has its own TWRP port.

To get started, users need to be unlocked via MotoDev. Users are then to install GooManager from the Play Store and use it to flash the recovery. If you’re not already rooted, you can then flash SuperSU to obtain root.

For additional info, check out the original thread.

Of note here are new prebuilt repositories for Go, and Ninja. Go is a programming language, created by Google, which compiles to produce...

Send Links to Any Nearby Device with CaastMe

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...
