TWRP Touch Recovery Available for the Nexus 10

We’ve made a fair amount of noise about TWRP (Team Win Recovery Project) here on the Portal, and with good reason. It’s been ported to a wide array of devices, from the Sprint Galaxy Note 2 to the ever present mobile geriatric that is the HTC Hero. Now it’s available to owners of the brand spanking new Nexus 10. I personally can’t think of a better way to celebrate the arrival of your new device by slapping a custom recovery on there.

This particular port of the increasingly popular recovery option is brought to us courtesy of XDA Recognised Developer Dees_Troy, lead developer of TWRP, and includes all the features you would expect to find. And because it’s based on the latest version (2.3.2.2), it fixes an issue with ADB in recovery and enables USB OTG capabilities. There is however a slight issue with the theme. Due to the high resolution of the Nexus 10, the recovery requires some upscaling and won’t quite fill the entire screen. This is purely aesthetic though, and does not affect functionality in any way.

Installation can be accomplished via either the good old fashioned way of fastboot flash recovery or by simply installing the Goo Manager app and selecting the install recovery option if you’re already rooted. Take a look at the development thread for all the details.

Sony’s Emergence in The Middle: Is The Price Right?

Sony’s Electronics Division is not in its best days, and its smartphone products are seemingly an important cause of this. The Japanese giant’s Xperia line has been on the decline in terms of sales, and these past few months have been particularly damaging to the company due to the Xperia Z4’s market performance. Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
