It was only a matter of time right? Soon after the Nexus Player was released, Chainfire had working root on it (probably just for proof of concept), and now, thanks to developer dhacker29 (famous for keeping Motorola devices alive and functioning) we have a working custom recovery for the premier Android TV player.
MultiRom used to be a root tweak that was at the top of everyone’s mind, but as of late, it hasn’t been receiving much traction. The last major phones that were supported were the Nexus 5, HTC One M8, and the Galaxy S4. However, with this latest update, the tweak that allows you to run multiple ROMs is getting a breath of new life thanks to its added support for our favorite whale, Shamu.
About two months ago, we were greeted with XPOSED support for Android devices running Lollipop 5.0.x — albeit a very alpha build. XPOSED gives users the ability to download modules that grant extra features to their devices that normally you’d have to have a ROM for. XPOSED creator Rovo89 previously said that this new version wouldn’t work with Android 5.1+, but thanks to an XDA developer, we now have a working build for Android 5.1.
We all know that Verizon isn’t the best when it comes to updating its phones (besides Moto devices) but the length of time that the Galaxy Note 4 has gone without receiving the Android 5.0 update is almost hilarious (probably not so much to Note 4 owners). However, Verizon has finally blessed the workhorse phablet with the software needed to push the hardware over the edge — pun?
Just like we saw earlier with the Galaxy S6, the pricing models have been released for the HTC One M9 — surprisingly the same day as the S6 pricing was announced, ಠ_ಠ . HTC also included the price for an unlocked model from their website (happy dance).
Whenever there’s a press conference in which a company announces a new device, the first questions asked by the public always seem to be: “When will it be available?” and “How much will it cost?” Since we already known that the new Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge will be arriving in stores April 10th, it’s now time to find out how much Samsung will be taking from our wallets as well.
