The MultiRom is quickly becoming one of the most popular. The main feature of MultiROM is the ability to flash and install several roms at once that you can flash back and forth between without wiping data. This is pretty cool because normally you would have to flash a rom, set it up the way you like, then nandroid backup your setup then flash another rom and repeat the whole cycle several times to end up with the same kind of result. This makes things much easier and much cleaner. Now this rom is on the HTC One M8! This rom is still in Beta so be mindful of that. Head to the link below to give it a try.
Today the big news all over the web has been the release of Windows 10 Tech Preview. If you have already installed it you are probably wondering how it will affect your rooting and modding. Apparently at least one rooting tool will continue to work with Win10. Wugfresh announced today that his Nexus Root Toolkit will continue to work. Chances are that most root methods and modding tools may not have been updated to work with Win10 yet. So be careful about upgrading. I remember the change from Win7 to Win8 caused lots of headaches when it came to root methods and things like Odin for flashing stock on Samsung devices. Just know that it may take a bit before all of these tools are ready for use on Win10.
A few nights ago I finished an article with a sort of challenge. I announced that I would do my best to use as much data as possible during the last day of "unthrottled unlimited data" as a form of protest. Several of you decided to do the same thing. Many of you tweeted me saying that you were able to use 10GB during the last day. I personally was able to use 28GB. The way I achieved this was a bit mischievous and wasteful I must admit. I actually downloaded and deleted a 1GB test file over and over again. One of you tweeted me the above image. You were able to use a staggering 135GB! I have to wonder if we made a blip on Verizon's radar with all the data we used. How much were you able to use?
Just to be clear Verizon decided not to go through with the throttled data.
This week has been a roller coaster for anyone on a grandfathered unlimited data plan. For months now we have been expecting Verizon to throttle data for the top 5% of users on congested towers starting promptly today. This caused lots of chaos and heart burn for those of us still on a legacy UDP. Many of you decided to jump ship and move onto brighter pastures with a shiny new carrier, a few of you upgraded and moved over to a limited data plan to avoid throttling, while even fewer of you worked the system and used the best buy glitch to upgrade your device while keeping unlimited data (locking you into a two year contract guaranteeing that you would not be throttled). As...
Verizon is canceling plans to move forward with Network Optimization of unlimited data customers.This means, Verizon is not going to slow down the data connection of customers with unlimited data plans who fall in the top 5% of the carrier’s data users.
The statement From Verizon.
The above pic is supposedly an "in the wild" shot of the new Nexus 6 from Motorola. We have a second pic in the thread below, so be sure to check that out too. Right now we really don't know if this device will be called the Moto Nexus 6, the Moto Nexus X or the Moto S (or even all three in some way), but it's obviously a real device regardless of its name.
What do you think? Will there be more than one version of Shamu? Share your speculation...
How very clever of them! Samsung apparently realized that their launch schedules for big flagship devices are a bit convoluted. To make up for that, some of their PR folks created this handy infographic which showcases the dates that their new Galaxy Note 4 will be coming to specific global markets.
While Samsung has struggled to engage any enthusiasm for their smartwatches, and Apple has only recently announced (but not released) their's, Motorola is busy kicking arse and chewing bubble gum. The Moto 360 is the "must have" device for consumers interested in a smartwatch, and it has been selling out since it was first announced.
It's back in stock (in limited quantities) now at the Motorola website and at Best Buy. It's still out of stock on the Google Play Store, but that's probably not too surprising. With a price of $249.99 and a fantastic design, it's not hard to see why people are interested in this wearable. If you are the type to wear a watch, and want the high-tech features that the Moto 360 provides, there isn't really anything which compares.
Here are a couple of links to order one for yourself:
There have been rumors floating around the inter-webs that HTC will be launching a new version of the HTC One M8 called the One M8 Eye. This new version supposedly will include a beefed up camera, and will be officially announced at HTC's New York City event next week. This is the same event in which HTC is likely to unveil their new GoPro competitor device, the HTC RECamera.
From what we know about the One M8 Eye, it is basically the same device internally (and externally based upon the leaked image) as the vanilla HTC One M8. The only difference is that it will include a 13MP camera instead of HTC's UltraPixel creation.
We will keep you updated as more intel hits the streets before the event next week.
It's amazing how far gaming graphics has evolved on mobile devices. The above video is a new game which is scheduled to come to Android and iOS devices next year, and it is a prime example. It's a new Assassin's Creed game, called Assassin's Creed: Identity, and it is surprising to see the game's impressive visual fidelity.
It uses the Unity engine to bring PC style features to mobile including, high-definition textures, shaders and models as well as a crowd system, dynamic weather, and dynamic lighting. The game is currently on a "oft-launch" in Australia and New Zealand, but will come to other markets early next year.
