If you would like to upgrade to Android 5.1 without losing root or the ability to downgrade back to Kit Kat then Frankenpop is probably for you. Before you go any further you should know that Frankenpop is currently in the testing phase and may not be complete. There are no real directions either here so you kind of need to know what you are doing. Also know that the creator of Frankenpop "mattlgroff" is not responsible for what you do to your device. Head to the link below for more info.

There have been a few slight updates in the UI of the Google Play Store app which are rolling out now. These features are not game changing in any way, but just add to the overall aesthetics of the app. The first change is in the Kids Character Section. There is now a new sliding animation when you click on a character keeping in line with the rest of the Play Store. There is also a new theme for the Changelog text of an app. The color of the box has changed to a lighter green, the text is a more easy on the eyes green which replaces the black text, and a new icon has been added. If you don't want to wait on the update to rollout to your device grab the latest version of the Play Store from the link below.

The Lenovo K3 Note has become quite the popular budget device as of late. This device actually has some killer specs for the price. Its rocking a 5.5" 1080p full HD Display, a 1.7GHZ ocat-core processor, 2GB of Ram, and 16GB of internal memory. It boast a pretty decent 13mp camera and expandable storage which allows you to use a 32GB sdcard. The only thing really holding back this device is the included VIBE UI. The software while fast and snappy is filled with bloat and obnoxious ads.

The good news is that this device is bootloader unlockable, easily rootable, and already has TWRP recovery available. A few days ago a really good build of CyanogenMod 12.1 was released for the Lenovo K3 Note! This brings a stock AOSP experience without any of the bloat to the K3 Note! So far it seems that this build is mostly bug free. Head to the XDA link below for the download.

If you happen to own the AT&T version of the first generation Moto X and have been antsy to try out Android 5.1 Lollipop, then you may be in luck soon. We have word that folks in the Motorola Testers network have started getting a soak test for Lollipop on this particular device. Usually, the full release is soon to follow, so keep your fingers crossed!

It turns out that the market analyst reports predicting weak sales of Samsung's Galaxy S6 flagship were true. Sammy just released their second quarter financials and things aren't as rosy as they would have hoped. According to Samsung's info, their profits were down by 4% compared to this time last year, and they attribute that to lower than expected Galaxy S6 sales.

Ironically, the problem isn't what you would expect. It seems that Samsung underestimated the exceptional demand for the Galaxy S6 Edge, which ended up cannibalizing some of the momentum for the "vanilla" version of the S6. In fact, they have since adjusted their previously predicted manufacturing schedule from a 4:1 ratio of Galaxy S6 to S6 Edge units, to nearly 1:1. Basically, the problem was that they made too many regular Galaxy S6 devices, and didn't make enough Galaxy S6 Edge devices.

To be clear, this isn't news that Samsung is doing poorly. It simply means they didn't do nearly as well as they predicted. Such is the nature of the fickle consumer industry. Perhaps they should have simply released the S6 as only the Edge model to begin with? (Assuming they could produce enough of the fancy display.)

Here's our dedicated Galaxy S6 section: Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge General...

Several years ago youtube really pushed the subscriber model. They prioritized your first page view based on your subscriptions. In fact when you logged into your account you would see a feed of only the channels you were subscribed to. A few years ago youtube began to shift to a more discovery based model. With the new layouts you have to actually make a few clicks before you can see your subscription fee. Because of this only about 17% of my total views come from my subscribers. This is not an entirely bad thing since 83% of my views come from some sort of discovery mechanism built into Android.

While the suggested videos are nice on the front page it can be pretty annoying at times. If you search for a video on a subject you may only need one time you will automatically begin to see videos on the same subject flooding your front page. If you view a several videos from a certain creator your front page will feature that creator for weeks even if you never click on that creators videos again.

Sometimes you just want to view your subscription feed. If you really just want a cleaner youtube experience Tuber may be an app for you to check out. The app is pretty simple with only 3...

There are many emulators available for Android devices which play Nintendo, Super Nintendo, and Sega Genesis games with ease. Our devices are 10 times more powerful than the consoles of our youth, but even so emulating old hardware can be a pain. I have tried a few Nintendo 64 emulators which have worked well on PC, but the Android counterparts have been quite buggy and crash enough to make them unusable. Play! is an emulator which has decided to tackle emulation of PlayStation 2 games. This is an early build, and as could be expected the experience is still pretty laggy, text is not clear, and there are some pretty lengthy load times. You can join the beta team now if you want to give this a try.

One of the first things I do when I buy a new device is figure out how to get it rooted. Once I'm rooted I'll figure out how to get my bootloader unlocked and twrp installed so i can flash a custom rom. One of top reasons I started to use custom roms was the ability to change the entire UI with a custom theme. Today OEMs are allowing users to install custom themes in the stock UI without the need to root. Some top flagships like the Galaxy S6 and M9 have their own theme stores. The Asus Zenfone 2 also has an option to change the theme. To apply the themes long press the home screen, find the middle row and choose the themes option, tap on the option you would like to choose, choose your desired default options and you are done. You can also download custom app icons in the Play Store which will show up in your themeing options.
