Chainfire announces root access to T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S6

Well that was quick. Chainfire, probably considered an Android coding legend at this point in time, has announced that his team has achieved root access to Samsung’s newest flagship, the Galaxy S6. The new flagship smartphone was launched recently at the MWC 2015, and it’s a bit of a surprise – well, the good kind – that root access has been achieved so quickly.

Chainfire’s Recently gives more control to Lollipop recent apps list

When Lollipop became active, there was a big change to the devices “recents” list – which is Android parlance for your “overview” or “multitask” or “recent apps” list, whatever you may call it. Lollipop just lists every app you ever opened in no particular order, which is annoying to some people who need the recents list for effective multitasking. This is where Chainfire’s “Recently” app comes in.

Chainfire updates CF.lumen, now available for non-rooted devices

Anytime you want to change the hue or color tone of your display either for convenience purposes or if you just want to impress your friends – and you can basically be sure that stock Android will not allow you to do this – time to install Chainfire’s “CF.lumen” app. This was once a “root only” app, but now an update has brought a workaround for non-root devices.

Screen Backlight Off app saves your battery

If you like to use an app that throws your video to a different device for mirroring or listen to the audio on YouTube music videos, you may like the idea of being able to turn off the screen backlight to save power. When you turn off the screen backlight many video players stop playback. A new app has launched for rooted devices called Screen Backlight Off.

Activate native call recording function in Samsung devices

It might be unethical (specifically when the person you're talking to doesn't know you're doing it) and maybe borderline illegal, but there are times when you just want to record the conversation you're having over the phone. While the old school feature phones do have this supposedly basic feature, OEMs have hidden the native call recording feature (probably to avoid problems with government) on the more widely distributed smartphones. But there is still a way to enable that feature because there's an app for that of course.

Emoji Switcher lets you use different emoji versions

If you've noticed that the emojis on your Samsung Galaxy S4 Android KitKat phone are different from iOS and the basic Google versions, it's because they are not from Google. Those are emojis created by Samsung which they plan on including in future mobile devices and the next firmware updates. The recent firmware released by Samsung included a special emoji set that looked a lot different from iOS and Google. They're still cute but it would be nice if we could use the original emotions and the Google emojis that we see on Hangouts. Even LG has its own version.

Titanium Backup gets updated, brings Lollipop improvements

Why do we keep using Titanium Backup even if it looks clunky and requires root access? Well, because it’s one of the best apps for doing what it does – that is, make backups of your phone data and system. Very few backup apps out there could claim to be able to do well what Titanium Backup offers to users (with rooted devices, of course).

Undelete for Root Users updated with 64-bit support

If you have ever accidentally deleted files or deleted a file and then wished you had it back, you need an app like Undelete for Root Users. As the name says, you do need root access to be able to use the app and it was recently updated with new features. The Undelete app is a free download, but to get full functionality does require an in-app purchase.

WhatsCloud [ROOT] update brings improved power efficiency

The WhatsCloud Root app has been around for a while now and as the name implies, it requires root access to your device. The app is designed to allow you to message friends from your desktop or a tablet and is meant to be secure with 256-bit AES end-to-end encryption.
