Android Wear for Samsung Gear S project now started at XDA

If you’re an owner of one of Samsung’s first curved display devices, a wearable called Samsung Gear S, you might have wondered how it would be to have Android Wear installed on the smartwatch. You see, if you didn’t realize it, the Samsung Gear S smartwatch runs on the proprietary Tizen platform. We won’t try to say anything bad about that, but we can all agree that Android Wear is relatively more universal and as such will have more apps you can use.

ASUS ZenFone 2 bootloader unlocked, customize to your heart’s content

The ASUS ZenFone 2 has been one of the major smartphone players in the “great deals” territory of the market. The phone represents a more than serviceable set of specs, especially with the Intel Atom multi-thread processors, at a price point that many will find very agreeable. A lot of the people who bought this phone will probably be happy to hear that there is now a way to safely unlock the bootloader of the device so you can start installing after-market software.

The HTC One M8 continues to receive a lot of support from the custom ROM development community, but we think this newly-released SkyDragon ROM for the HTC One M8 deserves notable mention. The developers claim to be the first ROM to integrate the new and unreleased Sense 7 UI. They also claim to be the first Lollipop-based ROM for the One M8.

At the moment, we do not know of any way to make your Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) run on Android, which is a sad, sad thing. But we found the next best thing – at least get it looking like it’s on Android! So much fun, right? Well, it is the best we can do right now, guys, so just run with it.

GravityBox for Xposed finally arrives for Lollipop

GravityBox can make a claim for the title of “most loved Xposed module” and most people would probably agree. If you have at any point in time tweaked your Android device using the Xposed Framework, then you will (at the very least) have heard of GravityBox. Simply put, it was a module that gave your stock ROM features that seemingly only custom ROMs could put out. But Android 5.0 Lollipop came and broke Xposed Framework compatibilities, leaving GravityBox users in limbo of whether they should jump to Lollipop.

Bootloader unlock for Kindle Fire HDX tablet now available

The Kindle Fire HDX Tablet is just one of those tablets, you know – the ones that you love so much for the robust specs but hate so much because of the software embedded in it. In this case it is Amazon’s proprietary Fire OS. Nothing against the concept of tweaked Android stuff, because we love that. It’s just the locked bootloader on the tablet – which means you can’t easily change software – that tick us off.
