Tethering is blocked on the T-mobile Galaxy S6 if you are on an unlimited data plan. I would never encourage anyone to use phone tethering as a one and all solution for your home internet, however many of you would argue that you have paid good money for your mobile data and should be able to use it on whichever device you want. "Fenny" has released his method for enabling free native wifi tether on the T-mobile variant of the Galaxy S6! This method is semi complicated and does require that you are familiar with running various adb commands. Head to the link below for the full guide.
One of the many reasons to install a custom rom is the ability to run a custom theme. There really aren't very many Roms left out there that have theme support specifically for their rom. Most themes these days are built for the CM12 theme engine, overlay, or for custom launchers. Team Venom has a full thread filled with all kinds of custom themes built specifically to be used with the ViperOneM9 rom. This includes full themes, icon packs, status bars, boot animations, and wallpapers. Check out the thread below to see what is available.
One of the many reasons you may want to S-Off your HTC One M9 is the fact that it allows you to have full control over your device. Security Off means you can flash anything to your M9. This means you can now flash custom splash screens. This is a good way to customize your device and make it truly your own. Developer "Soldier9312" has released a long list of custom splash screens.
So far splash screens include 2 Shelby screens, 2 Iron Man screens, 1 Stark industry screen, 1 Breaking Bad screen, and 1 Call Of Duty Ghost Screen. There are many more screens to come, and Soldier9312 will also be adding instructions on how to create your own Splash Screens. To install you will need to Download the splash screen, boot m9 into fastboot mode, and then type a few commands via adb. Head to the link below for downloads and the full guide.
If you have ever bought a phone just before the next version of that phone was released you know what it feels like to miss out on all the new features! If you have a Note 3 there is now a Galaxy S6 themed version of the Note 4 camera app for your device. This includes features like various picture sizes, and the option to shoot in 16:9. Fast motion is working, as well as slow motion. There is a small issue where the camera will sometimes fc when using slow motion, but a fix is on the way for that. A few of the features won't work simply because the hardware for those features doen't exist on the Note 3. This is a great camera to use with any Note 4 rom ports you may be using on your Note 3. Download the camera below.
Earlier this morning i stumbled on what has to be the easiest way to install a rom ever. I can remember back in the day Rom Manager allowed you to easily install a recovery to your device and for a small fee would actually flash roms to your device. These days installing a rom is a several step process. You generally need to figure out how to unlock your bootloader. Once that is achieved you have to find the proper version of your favorite custom recovery and flash that. You then need to download and install your intended rom.
Developer "ronin790" has created an all in one tool that will do all of the above with a click of a button! This tool was created for personal use, but has been released to the masses as an easy way for custom rom users to update to the latest version of Android 5.1 for the GPE Moto G. This can do more than just install roms. It will also root your phone, install a custom recovery, and you can even change your bootlogo. There is an easy adb setup that comes with this as well. Head to the link below for the download and full guide.
We have had CM12.1 unofficial roms for several devices for a while now, but CyanogenMod has finally released 12.1 official nightlies on several devices. This brings Android 5.1 along with some added features. Devices that have official builds include Nexus 7 wifi, Oppo Find 7s, Moto G, HTC One XL, HTC Droid DNA, Condor, and a long list of other devices. Devices are continually being added to the list as well. So far no nightlies are available for the most recent flagships like the S6 and M9, but those should come along soon as well. Head to the link below to see if your device is supported.
I have never really understood or had a reason for using wireless charging. I guess it is kind of neat that you can set your phone down on a pad and not have to worry about plugging the phone in. The only thing is you still have a wire coming from the wall and your phone still has to sit in that one place while it charges. It is only slightly more convenient.
What IKEA has up their sleeves seems much more appealing than a simple QI charge pad. They are gearing up to release some furniture with built in wireless charging! This is awesome. The one piece of furniture that really peaked my interest is a lamp with a built in table that will charge your device. I set my phone down on the end table all the time. It would be pretty awesome if when i did my phone would start to charge! IKEA has been working on this project for some time now. IKEA says it will release the furniture in the Spring. They will also have wireless charging cases for non wireless charging phones. The case will enable your non wireless charging capable phone to work with the furniture.

If you love a dark theme you will love the BlackKat theme by theme developer "DJDarkKnight". This theme is a full theme which means that every element is touched including Framework and System UI. This means that notifications, nav bar, apps, and more will be themed. This theme is inverted which means it takes all the white or light elements and makes them dark or black! This gives your device an instantly new look and feel. The theme only works if you are currently running CyanogenMod or any rom that uses the Cyanogen Mod theme engine. To get all the inverted goodies that go with this theme also download the Blackoutapps updater app. Head to the link below to grab this theme.
Do you get tired of looking at the same old Twrp screen? The look of Team Win Recovery Project has barely changed since the very first version was launched. One cool thing about TWRP is that you can add themes to it. This is an easy way to freshen up your TWRP and make your Rom flashing experience even better! Developer "z31s1g" has released a few themes for TWRP including a Light, Dark, and Play Store themed version.
Recovery gone App: Designed to mimic the look and feel of an Android app.
Customisable UI: 15 different accent colors, center clock option, different navbar button layouts...
Added functionality: ability to flash image files (recovery, radio, boot), ability to change the recovery splash screen, bookmark function for file lists, Aroma File Manager support, theme changer...
This is supported for many screen sizes! You should be able to find a theme that will fit your device. Head to the link below for download links.
The day has finally come! Jcase, Beaups and the rest of TheRoot.ninja team has finally released the S-OFF method for the HTC One M9. With S-Off you will be able to flash anything on your M9. When I say anything I mean anything. This also means that you can do some serious damage to your HTC One M9 so you will want to be careful to not flash the wrong thing. Security Off will allow us to flash proper firmwares. Without S-Off you would have to flash those separately from your Rom which can be a major pain.
The method for S-Off comes by way of the Sunshine S-Off app. Basically all you will have to do is launch the app and press some buttons! It really is that easy. The app will test your device for compatibility once it has determined your device is compatible it will give you the option to buy a license. The license will set you back $25 which is a small price to pay to gain full access to your device. The fee goes towards further developing the app for future devices. Jcase had to purchase 10 M9's just for testing. That doesn't include devices that were bricked in the process so you can imagine development costs add up quickly. Grab the Sunshine S-Off app from the link below....
