If you unwittingly took the update to 4.4.4 on your 2014 Moto X you more than likely lost root. Since then you have been patiently waiting for a new root method. The wait is finally over! The developers of the Mofo app have just released an update. 5.0 will remain blocked for now until a proper image becomes available. To root your Moto X download and run the motoverify. This will verify that your device is compatible for mofo root. Once your device is verified you will be asked to pay the fee. Mofo will then run to root your device! Head to the link below to grab Motoverify and get started.

Although Google is unable to release a 5.1 update for the Nexus 9 there are plenty of options to install 5.1 and even 5.1.1 for the Nexus 9 thanks to the work of the development community. There is an unofficial build of CyanogenMod which will bring you up to 5.1.1. There is also a Pure AOSP build of 5.1. Either of these will bring the new UI features and security features to the Nexus 9. Head to the link below and grab your choice from the list of 5.1 roms. You will need to be bootloader unlocked with custom recovery.

CyanogenMod is the top dog when it comes to custom roms, and there rom can be found for just about every device under the sun. Cyanogen is working on an all new UI which will be released with Cyanogen OS later on in the year. While they are steadily working on retheming the rom and giving it a new look some other members of the rom community are doing the same thing. If you are growing tired of the plain bootanimation that comes with the rom you can pretty easily change it.

Themer "ChariZardKs" has put together a custom bootanimation that is based on CyanogenMod. This bootanimation is minimalistic and includes the material design. To install just download the zip file and move it to your system/media folder. Reboot to enjoy!

It looks like sometimes pigs really are born with wings. Verizon just announced several revamped data plans, and they basically lowered some of their prices!

Here are the details,
  • The 8GB ($85), 12GB ($110), 14GB ($120), and 16GB ($130) plans are all gone
  • The 500MB to 4GB plans are the same at their February prices
  • We still have the 6GB and above limit for the $25 Edge discount
  • The 6GB plan is $70 and the 20GB plan is $140
  • The main change we have that adds great value for many customers is that the 10GB plan has dropped to $80 (from $100) and Verizon restarted the 15GB plan which is now priced at $100
You can see more of the details in the graphic above and in the source link below. Try not to pass out from shock!

Earlier this week we shared a rumor that Nokia was jumping back in the smartphone game. Today's new info confirms that rumor, and takes it a step further. It is now confirmed that Nokia is diving back into the smartphone waters, and this time they will be hitting the ocean with an Android phone! Here's a quote with the details,

While this is exciting news, we wonder if Nokia will do it right or make a half-hearted attempt like their last Android device. We are crossing our fingers they announce a flagship level Android smartphone. Just imagine the legendary Nokia quality and design with high-end specs and the latest version of Android! Just Awesome!

A few days ago we shared that Comcast was frantically grasping at straws to try and save their Time Warner Cable merger from the wise skepticism of government regulators. US consumers can breath a sigh of relief now. The Comcast and Time Warner Cable merger has been officially cancelled. Comcast's $45.2 billion bid for Time Warner Cable came to an abrupt end this morning when both companies announced they would drop the deal in the face of opposition from regulators.

This deal incidentally kills off a few other areas of consolidation in the cable industry. The most notable example is a transaction with Charter Communications Inc. aimed to smoothing the way for regulatory approval was also scrapped. Additionally, Charter's bid for Bright House Networks, announced in March, could also be ended.

Despite this, it actually leaves the table open for other mergers within the industry to push forward. It's also possible that Charter will now renew their failed bid to buyout Time Warner Cable. Here's a quote with a few more details,
