AT&T HTC One X gets its bootloader unlocked

If you're the type that enjoys tweaking your Android smartphone (who doesn't) and have recently purchased the HTC One X we have good news today. After we reported on AT&T's efforts to lock down the bootloader it appears that they've failed because the trusty XDA developers have already got a solution. You can now safely and easily unlock the AT&T HTC One X bootloader using the method below.

Samsung Galaxy S III rooted already

The brand new Samsung Galaxy S III hasn't even hit the shelves yet and it's already been rooted. Thanks to the awesome and well known XDA Developer Chainfire we now have full access before the phone is even commercially available. The only issue with achieving root is the fact he doesn't have the device in-hand for testing, but the process should remain the same come release day.

AROMA manages file system in recovery mode

On Android, file managers are a dime a dozen - in fact, considering that most of them are free, they're considerably cheaper than that. But how about when you enter your custom recovery for a little ROM flashing action, and you've forgotten where your file os, or you're using the wrong SD card, et cetera? AROMA File Manager is here to help.

AT&T, Rogers HTC One X rooted

AT&T customers are still pretty upset at the arbitrary locked bootloader on the HTC One X, but at least they can do some basic modifications: root has been achieved. XDA Developers member Kenneth Penn has posted a one-click root solution for the LTE version of the One X, and it should also work on the phone headed for Canadian carrier Rogers as well. You'll need a Windows PC and a basic understanding of Android, but as far as root process go, it's relatively easy.

Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch ICS update leaked

Ah, there hasn't been enough news lately about the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch lately - my fingers were just starting to recover. An enterprising XDA user named "sfhub" has posted what seems to be an official Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Now Network phone, compatible only with the specific version of the device. The leak comes after various international versions of the Galaxy S II have been updated, not to mention leaks for AT&T's Galaxy S II and Galaxy S II Skyrocket.

Sony Xperia Arc S ROM ported to Galaxy Nexus

When considering Android modders and the projects they choose to devote themselves to, the question "Why?" often arises. And the answer, almost universally, is "why not?" Such is the case with GNexusTimeScape, a new ROM for the Galaxy Nexus from noted XDA member koaaN. The custom ROM takes the interface, apps and widgets from the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S - an older, smaller and considerably weaker phone - and puts them front and center on the Galaxy Nexus.

Google Play Store mod removes location-based restrictions

Are you Slovenia's biggest Android fan, but bummed that you can't download apps that aren't available in your country? Then the latest mod from XDA might be right up your alley. XDA member Deeco7 has posted a modified version of the "Vending.apk" Google Play Store app file, with the aim of allowing anyone to download any app, regardless of their own location or the restrictions built into the app. The modified app works with Android 2.2 or later, and you don't even need root to install it.

Flash Blink App uses camera LED for call notifications

We see tons and tons of random applications or development in the world of Android but every once in a while I see something interesting and unique like Flash Blink that I just have to share with our readers. Meet Flash Blink, an app developed to use the camera flash on our Android smartphones to notify users of an incoming call. No more irritating ringtones, just use that flash.
