Want To Root Something (Anything)? Try DooMLoRD’s Easy Rooting Toolkit
It looks like the advancement of Android can render some of the most popular automatic root methods useless. As a result of that, we all need to look for new and innovative ways to try and keep our devices (and the devices that will come soon) rooted to be able to fully enjoy them. With this in mind, XDA Recognized Developer DooMLoRD developed a method based on the zergRush exploit by Team Revolution. The dev originally created this method for the Xperia devices, in which it worked quite well. However, some people decided to take it for a spin on other devices such as the SGS2 as well, and much to the dev’s surprise, it worked flawlessly.
Working with this is as easy as one, two, three. The only thing that must be done is to unzip the file and run it in your Windows PC. The computer will prompt you and guide through the entire process, process that is by no means long. To make this even sweeter, the dev has also provided a script to un-root the device if you ever need to get it back to manufacturer’s condition (warranty repairs, etc). Please try it out on other devices if you have any available as it will help grow the list considerably.

The beginning of April is dominated by April Fools. There are jokes and pranks everywhere, which are meant to fool people. This news is no joke though, as Google has pushed the shiny red button to send out over-the-air updates to supported devices. Well, sort of, as only a few of available Nexus devices got updates to Android 5.1. Here's a list of OTAs that can be downloaded and flashed by stock recoveries. You can find guides on how to revert...
Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors. I speak, of course, about April Fools Day. As has become their custom, Google launched lighthearted "pranks" for each of their various services (with other tech sites and vendors following suit), and we have done our best to round up the humorous products and tweaks surfacing thus far....
