Your Warranty is Not Void – XDA TV

XDA-Developers is a site dedicated to phone development and customization. Sometimes carriers and device manufactures lock down their devices. Sometimes this is done to cover devious practices. Other times, it’s done to try and ensure that you will buy the next device they release. Why would anyone buy the Galaxy S III when they can put Ice Cream Sandwich on their Galaxy S II?

Here at XDA we port things to other things, and we create new things. Our developers figure out ways to get the lastest Android on older devices and the latest features on all devices. Currently to do this, you have to root your device. Some people—even some manufacturers—think that rooting your device violates your warranty. XDA Elite Recognized Developer  AdamOutler talks your the freedom to root your device in the United State of America. This right is granted with any full warranty with a device. Check out this video to understand your rights.

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
