OnePlus One plus TWRP equals possibilities

OnePlus' first smartphone caused a bit of a sensation, both in a good and in a bad way, but its utility has so far been quite limited.

OUYA console receives an unofficial CWM Recovery release

The OUYA game console release was previously delayed until June 25th, however that doesn't seem to have stopped those who have one of the already available developer units. We know the OUYA team is friendly towards hacking and modding. In fact, they previously announced a MakerBot partnership that will allow users to create their own cases. More to the point for today though, those developers have already released a working version of CWM Recovery.

Google Glass gets ClockworkMod Recovery as the hacking continues

When the folks at Mountain View released Google Glass to developers it was quickly discovered that the wearable computing glasses were extremely easy to hack.

Add Beats audio to any Gingerbread ROM [UPDATE]

Jealous of HTC's partnership with the Beats audio company, coming to an HTC One phone near you? If you know your way around a custom recovery, you needn't be. Like Sense UI before it, HTC's proprietary audio technology has made its way to other phones thanks to XDA Developers member fuss123 (never change, guys). He's reverse-engineered the Beats application, which is basically an advanced equalizer, and wrapped it up in a flashable package that works on any ROM based on Android Gingerbread, stock or custom. As if you needed more confirmation that Android modders know how to rock.
