02/20/2012, The Samsung Galaxy Note treads a land that few have dared, and it seems to be succeeding – count it down as sheer luck, great timing, the right market conditions, or all of it, you cannot write the Galaxy Note off. Slated to hit retail store shelves in the US tomorrow, developers have already succeeded in rooting the device – that is, allowing ordinary folk like you and I access […]
12/26/2011, Remember our earlier story on how the MotoACTV fitness device received its latest software update that makes it more stable and better to use? Well, it seems as though this particular software update has been rooted, and it is now capable of running the stock Honeycomb launcher, thanks to developer CMW. To put it in a nutshell, your smartwatch is now able to gain access to the Android Market. Of […]
12/13/2011, If you’ve always thought that your BlackBerry PlayBook didn’t have enough memory, fret not – a solution is here. Remember the Dingleberry rooting method? Well, some folks have discovered some interesting new uses for their BlackBerry tablet. First off we had the ability to install the Android Market and run Android apps, now someone managed to figure out how to enable USB host access on the BlackBerry PlayBook.
12/07/2011, Remember the BlackBerry PlayBook root method that was discovered last week? RIM announced that it would be investigating the exploit and releasing a patch to close the hole. Well, it seems like RIM has kept to its word and true enough – the hole which dingleberry uses to gain root access has been closed by the latest update that has been issued to the PlayBook. It looks like the short-lived […]
11/30/2011, Yesterday we reported that the BlackBerry PlayBook was successfully rooted by a developer via the “dingleberry” method. Well, it looks like RIM is now aware of the situation and is looking into it. The company released a statement saying that it is now in contact with the “security researchers” behind the exploit. RIM is also aware of the developer’s plans to release tools that will let anybody root their PlayBook, […]
11/30/2011, If you own the recently release Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, the good news is that if you have been itching to install some custom ROMs or make some modifications to the device, a root method for the tablet has recently been uncovered, although we’re not sure if this root method will work across the board (i.e. T-Mobile’s version of the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus). However for those interested in […]
11/28/2011, After being out on the market for a number of months now, it looks like the developer community has finally made some headway with the device. A developer named Chris Wade managed to root the QNX tablet over the weekend. This basically means that he’ll be able to access, files, folders and settings that are normally unavailable to non-rooted users. It’s a pretty big step forward for the developer community […]
11/21/2011, It wasn’t too long ago that Amazon’s Kindle Fire tablet got rooted, so we can’t say that we’re very surprised to hear that its competition, the Nook Tablet, has been rooted as well. The method to rooting the Nook Tablet is apparently similar to the one used on the Kindle Fire, and for those looking to install Google apps on the Nook Tablet, it seems that a method has been […]
11/17/2011, A few days ago we reported that Amazon’s Kindle Fire would allow the sideloading of apps outside of Amazon’s own app store, but now it seems that for those who want the Android Market installed on their Kindle Fire will be able to do so, however the kicker is that they will need to root their Kindle Fire and install a new UI in order for Android Market to show […]
11/16/2011, It was just yesterday that we were talking about sideloading apps on the newly released Amazon Kindle Fire that need not require any rooting process to be done, but in less than 24 hours, here we are with word that the Kindle Fire can be rooted, with the solution being as simple as a one button click, helping casual users gain privileges on their new tablet which were previously unheard […]
11/11/2011, Prior to the Motorola Droid RAZR being released, many had assumed that the 1-click root method would work for the Droid RAZR as well, but as it turns out that does not appear to be the case. For those unaware, the Motorola Droid RAZR will not be able to be rooted by using the 1-click root method, but fortunately it looks like the Android community has proven their dedication and […]
11/04/2011, I guess it has more or less become the norm (or at least it will be) for a smartphone from the Android camp to be rooted before it is even released officially. While we know that October 18th was when Google “gave birth” to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus alongside the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, citing a possible November 17th launch over at Verizon Wireless, it must be said that […]
10/13/2011, If you’ve recently gotten your hands on AT&T’s Samsung Galaxy S2, it looks like a firmware update for your device has already been leaked and is available for download, assuming of course your device has already been rooted. For those who would rather avoiding rooting or don’t know how to root, based on this leak, we don’t expect the actual update to be too far behind. The build has been […]
09/19/2011, Just last week we reported that the Samsung Epic Touch 4G had it source code released by Samsung, in an effort to give back to the Android developer’s community. Unfortunately at that time, the source code release and all its mods and ROMs that followed would be pretty much moot unless the device itself was rooted.
