You've probably seen or installed modified applications, be it a patched dialer for your resolution or a custom WhatsApp version with added features. How do developers do that, though? A lot of the time, the applications' source code isn't even available, so how does it all work? We'll see that first, then take a look at a new tool that aims to make the process much easier, and finally compare it to the popular Xposed framework to see how they...
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.

When the first reports of the M9 overheating came to light, many forum users began a collective joke-round calling the phone a popcorn machine, a grill, and other unoriginal remarks that we’ve seen with every device that presents sign of overheating, from gaming consoles to graphics cards. In this sense, the internet is not very inventive, and the cycle of rehashed jokes re-surfaces on different products every year or so. This time it was the M9’s turn and it was...
