Introducing the XDA-Developers Root Directory

People visit XDA-Developers to make the most out of their mobile devices.  And without a doubt, one of the most common ways in which this is done is through achieving root access and applying root-level modifications and tweaks. But if you’re not running a Nexus device, chances are that you’ll have to do a little (or lot) of digging before finding the proper root procedures for your particular model.

There are hundreds of device forums here at XDA. And thanks to our dedicated team of mods, developers, contributors, and community at large, practically every forum has several high quality stickied threads that show you how to get started on your journey towards root access. That said, we would like to make things even easier for new visitors. So without further ado, we’d like to introduce you to the XDA-Developers Root Directory

The XDA Root Directory, which is maintained by RC-RT Liaison PG101, is aimed at making rooting even easier for new users. Inside, you’ll find rooting procedure links for practically every significant device in the past few years. These links are organized by OEM, and we’ve also included root info for carrier-skinned versions, when applicable.

We hope that this new resource is able to help new users get to where they need to go even easier and more efficiently. Head over to the new XDA-Developers Root Directory and search for your device to get started. Happy rooting!

XDA Office Space: Frankenstein’s Perfect IM Client?

The portal’s decentralized XDA office lies in a Hangouts chatroom, where we discuss the latest developments that hit the blogosphere, critique them and figure out what we can do to add a new or original point of view. We came to love this little virtual office, which sees messaging 24/7 due to the international nature of our team. The main problem that we have faced since early on is that Hangouts is not versatile enough for in-depth discussion.   What...
