Sony Xperia Z2 cameera app extracted and ported for other Xperia devices

Owners of other Sony Xperia smartphones need not crave for the latest flagship, at least as far as the camera is concerned. An unofficial port of the Camera app on the Xperia Z2 is now available for other Sony‘s devices to install.

Except for the size, the Xperia Z2 is somewhat similar to the slightly older Xperia Z1. The megapixel count on both smartphones is the same, clocking at 20.7 megapixels. The more recent phablet, however, boasts of a few more features when it comes to the camera app. Thanks to XDA member xperiaz2, those features can be used on other devices as well.

The app itself was actually extracted from a firmware dump of the Xperia Z2 that was earlier provided by DooMLoRD, one of the more prominent XDA developers when it comes to the Xperia line. Features that users of those devices will be getting include background defocus, augmented reality effects, creative filters, and more.

sony-xperia-z2-camera-app-1

The feature set and device compatibility, however, isn’t exactly straightforward. There are specific Android version requirements for different features. The Social Camera Addons Creative Effects work on those running Android 4.3 and higher only. The AR effect, on the other hand, goes back to older versions, starting from Android 4.1. The background effect, however, is only for those Xperia smartphones running Jelly Bean and KitKat but also have Smart Social Camera already installed.

Unofficial method to connect Galaxy Gear to Nexus 5 worked out

galaxy_gear_update_all_notifications

Over on the XDA Developers site, forum member pcelli figured out how to get a Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch working with his Nexus 5 smartphone. This had to be done on an unofficial basis as up to now Samsung has only enabled support for the Galaxy Gear with other Samsung devices. Although there have been some hints indicating Samsung may eventually break down the wall around that particular garden, getting a Galaxy Gear to work with a non-Samsung device may never be officially supported.

According to pcelli success was achieved through the installation of several different APK files on the Nexus 5. In early testing, the following functions are working:

  • contacts
  • call logs
  • gallery
  • camera (sending to and from the smartphone’s gallery)
  • make and receive calls
  • record voice messages
  • notifications

At this point, the Weather and S Voice functions are not working, likely because they are part of Samsung’s TouchWiz. SamMobile has done some additional testing and indicated they were able to get this method to work with a Nexus 7.

If you have a Nexus 5 or Nexus 7 and a Galaxy Gear, head on over to the source link for the directions outlining the APKs to be installed if you want to give it a try.

Android 4.4.2 custom ROM for the Motorola XOOM now available

Motorola XOOM

The Motorola XOOM is a long forgotten tablet due to a variety of reasons. However, there are still quite a lot of users out there who rely on this tablet and most of these happen to be developers. And these developers have now built an Android 4.4.2 custom ROM for the tablet from the ground up. It has its problems of course, but the fact that these developers worked on a custom ROM for a forgotten tablet is a laudable feat. The tablet is currently stuck at Android 4.1, but reports have claimed that the tablet will taste Android 4.2 soon.

The ROM comes from XDA developers Schisu, bubor, flar2 who have made sure the ROM is as functional for the users as possible. User reports suggest that the ROM is not completely unusable, but it has its glitches. As this is a custom ROM, this is always a risk people take, especially for a device as old as this. If you own a Motorola XOOM tablet, make sure you give this custom ROM a try by heading over to the link below. Make sure you know how to flash custom ROMs as it can usually be a somewhat tricky process.

Nexus 5 appears to be shipping with physical design changes

nexus-5-volume-pg

Google and LG apear to have tweaked the physical design of the Nexus 5, according to some folks over at the XDA Developers forums. The changes appear to address a few minor issues with phone that have been bugging some users.

The most noticeable change is the presence of larger cutouts for the speaker and microphone on the bottom of the device, perhaps addressing complaints about low volume. The other changes aren’t as easy to spot, but the claim is the Nexus 5’s physical buttons now feel a bit sturdy and the SIM tray sit more flush with the phone’s body.

Subtle tweaks, yes. The new design is probably no reason to return your current Nexus 5 (unless you are having major problems), but it sounds like they make a positive difference. Anyone recently purchase Google’s flagship that can attest to these changes?

Google Nexus 5 gets unofficial CyanogenMod 11

CyanogenMod_Alien

CM11 might not be officially available yet, but you can still get a taste of it since the code was freely distributed to Github earlier in the month. The unofficial release of CM11 for the Nexus 5 is now available via XDA Developers. Because of the fact that this release is unofficial it will still probably have a few glitches, but in case you want to see what it’s like before the official release you can head over to XDA Developers to check it out.

CM11 has been in the works since the source for KitKat was released on October 31. The devices that will receive the upgrade have yet to be announced, but CyanogenMod is hoping to bring all devices that are currently running CM10.2 up to CM11. The first official release of CM11, CM11 Nightly, is expected before the end of the month.

There are a number of features that come with installing CyanogenMod, but one of the biggest advantages is the ability to bring your device up to the latest version of Android even if your device doesn’t technically support it.

Nexus 5 Gets an Unofficial CyanogenMod 11

Google launched Nexus 5 just the other day and their newest version of Android 4.4 KitKat followed soon after but surprisingly, developers have already released an unofficial custom ROM for the device based on KitKat.  The new ROM by popular Android ROM developers CyanogenMod is apparently already available to the public and there is a video to show just how sleek it is.  If you are one of the many who can even buy a device based on availability of custom ROMs then you have got to love Nexus 5.

CyanogenMod 11 for Nexus 5

CyanogenMod 11 is based on Android 4.4 KitKat and brings a ton of new cool features that the stock Android ROM does not have.  An xda-developers user m3dd0g posted the details about and link to the Nexus 5’s CyanogenMod ROM earlier today together with a link to the newest version of Google Apps and if you have a Nexus 5 you wouldn’t mind using as a guinea pig then you can head on to XDA-Developers and download the ROM.

Since this is the earliest build of CM 11, it comes with a warning that it is unstable and it has already run into problems.  The straightforward version is, this ROM will most likely brick your device, so do not install it on your device if you would mind losing it.  It is however worth talking about this because once the Alpha build comes out, it won’t be long before more stable releases come.

LG Nexus 5 joins the likes of Nexus 4, Nexus (both 2012 and 2013 refresh), HTC One and HTC One X+ as the only few devices to have unofficial versions of Android 4.4 KitKat.  Check out the video on You Tube  to see how CM 11 runs on Nexus 5 and tell us what you think or what your expectations are.

CyanogenMod 11 arrives unofficially for the Nexus 5

Those sporting a Nexus 5 are amongst the lucky few to be running Android 4.4 Kit Kat at the moment, however that doesn’t seem to have stopped some from tinkering. With that in mind, we have already seen details about how work has begun on CyanogenMod 11, which is based on Kit Kat — and now it looks like an unofficial release has been made available for the Nexus 5.

CM11-2-480x274

The details of this release come by way of the xda-developers forums and user m3dd0g. The CM11 download, along with the latest Gapps package are both available in that thread, but before anyone heads over to download we will offer the warning — this appears to be early days for the release. Simply put, there are likely to be some issues and quicks and for that we would suggest not trying this on a phone you consider your daily driver.

Those still looking to move forward will need to now how to begin playing around. You know, the process of rooting your device, making sure your bootloader is unlocked and installing a package such as CWM. There are various how-to pages for those and otherwise, installing CM11 on your Nexus 5 means backing up your current installation then performing a wipe for the data and cache partitions.

From here you install CyanogenMod and then flash the Gapps package. Well, the Gapps package flash is optional, but given it contains the Google services including access to the Play Store, we suspect most will want that installed. That all having been said, the links for CM11 and v4.4 Gapps are included in the xda thread, along with some step-by-step directions that you can follow.

Moto-X-android-4-4-kitkat

Apparently the build has worked on Verizon variants, but flash at your own risk. Make sure you have your bootloader unlocked, then proceed with the following:

1. Put your phone in fastboot mode (press and hold power + volume down when phone is off)
2. Connect phone to PC
3. Extract zip on PC and run flashall.bat

Now apparently the Google Experience Launcher does not come with the build, so if you plan on flashing this build and want the new KitKat launcher, click here to download it from us. The build might not be fully stable, so make sure you back up whatever you have got on your Moto X before attempting to flash. let us know how it runs.

GravityBox Is The Mother Of All Xposed Framework Modules For Nexus Devices And AOSP 4.1+ ROMs

operateThe Xposed framework has opened up some interesting mods. Most of them do only a few things. Some of them do a lot more. GravityBox does a lot more than that. This module from XDA Developers member C3C076 (keep ‘em comin, guys) seems to incorporate all the little tweaks that people generally flash a custom ROM for, but it’s built for stock Nexus devices and “clean” AOSP ROMs.

Latest Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Root Method Is Knox-Friendly

Rooting an Android device used to be a relatively simple process. This changed with the release of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 since initial rooting methods triggered its Knox security software to mark the status of the device as unnoficial thus voiding its warranty. The good news is that a better rooting method has been discovered which does not void the warranty of the device.

galaxy-note-3

 XDA developers’ designgears and Chainfire announced the new rooting method which they call Root de la Vega. Its named after AT&T Mobility CEO Ralph de la Vega. This method does not affect the Knox security software for the device in any way. The procedure will still initially set the device status as unnoficial and void its warranty however can be reversed using the Xposed Framework along with the Wanam Xposed app.

The procedure involves flashing a custom pre-rooted firmware that will wipe all data on the device instantly. This means that if you plan on rooting your Note 3 you better make a backup of your data first.

Right now Root de la Vega is available for the international Snapdragon model (SM-N9005), the SM-N900W8, and for the T-Mobile, Verizon and AT&T variants.

General Rooting Instructions

Note: This will wipe out all data on your device (internal and sdcard).

  • Remove the external sdcard
  • Boot into bootloader mode
  • Load the correct AP file into the AP slot in Odin
  • Load the correct CSC file into the CSC slot in Odin
  • Click start in Odin, wait for it to fully flash
  • Let your device fully boot after flashing has completed
  • Copy the contents of Root_de_la_Vega.zip to the root of the internal storage /My Computer/[Phone Name]/Phone/
  • Reboot
  • Delete the files from the internal storage that were added previously at /My Computer/[Phone Name]/Phone/
  • Reboot
  • Reinsert the external sdcard
  • You now have a rooted Galaxy Note 3

The AP and CSC files that are compatible with your device can be found at the xda-developers forum. A Verizon specific and AT&T specific procedure on rooting is also available at forum.

Verizon HTC One Finally Gets S-Off Treatment

verizon-htc-one-640x541

Verizon HTC One users who are looking to get their device S-Off are finally able to with today’s release by XDA members jduck and beaups. This means that Verizon HTC One users will finally be able to completely mod their phone, throwing custom ROMs, custom recoveries, and much more.

The method, called Rumrunner S-Off, is now available to download on the XDA-Developers website. As always, you want to read about the process first before actually going hands-on. The developers do note that you need to be running either Linux or Windows to complete this process, as well as on 100% stock before you start the tool. This means that you should not have tinkered with your HTC One in any way if you want this process to go smoothly.

HTC HD2 receives Sense 5 ROM

And so the epic journey continues as the almost legendary HTC HD2 smartphone receives yet another breath of life. Thanks to some ardent souls over at XDA developers, the well-aged smartphone is getting the latest iteration of HTC’s custom Android interface, the HTC Sense 5.

htc-hd2-sense-5

The HTC HD2 began its journey way back in late 2009 as a Windows Mobile phone, back in the days when it was still called Windows Mobile. But through the device’s hackable nature and no small amount of effort on the part of its devoted users, the HD2 slowly made its way up the ranks of Android devices, first getting Android 2.2 Froyo, then 2.3 Gingerbread, and finally receiving CyanogenMod 9 in May last year, which brought Android 4.0 Ice Scream Sandwich and Sense 4.0.

Now thanks to the work done by XDA senior member gilbert32 and a number of acknowledged volunteers, the four-year old smartphone is getting a new lease on life and a facelift to boot. The ROM is currently a work in progress and so not everything is currently functional. Touchscreen, cellular connection and data work so far, but leaves WiFi, Bluetooth, camera, sound and video playback still unusable. You can see the ROM in action in the video below.

There is definitely a bit of sluggishness and, as mentioned, not everything is working yet. But it is already a miracle that something this old, at least in mobile device terms, would still be able to get something this new, and will be even more of a miracle if and when they get everything working again.

BBM for Android leaked before release, doesn’t work yet

We’re getting pretty close to what many would consider “the end of summer” which is when Blackberry Messenger for Android is set to finally be released. However for those who’d rather not wait this weekend the app has leaked in the flesh and is available for download as we speak. If all those leaks didn’t convince you it was coming soon, this should do the trick.

7npngEs

There’s just one problem though. The app that leaked this weekend and is available as we speak still doesn’t work. You can install it, sign in, and even make a new account to use the app but it still won’t work. It’s currently being tested internally and only will work for premium whitelisted accounts.

So far there is no functionality, but surely a few XDA developers might be able to crack it and get it working. In the meantime there was that leaked video last week showing messenger off, but it’s nothing too special. BBM for Android continues to have excitement around it, so hopefully they release it soon enough.

Once BBM for Android gets the green light from Blackberry we’ll most likely see the application hit the Google Play Store and other areas, but so far there’s still no set date to give you guys at this moment. More details can be found from XDA below.

LG G2 on Verizon and AT&T get easy root access

The LG G2 on both Verizon and AT&T are finally available this week. With Verizon opening up orders on their smartphone yesterday. For those curious as to if you’ll be able to root the 5.2-inch quad-core powered smartphone, that’s a yes. We already have an extremely simple root method for both carrier models, and more details can be found below.

20130911_121319

We say easy, but you’ll need a little bit of ADB knowledge to get finished, which is something you should have if you’re rooting to begin with. As usual the folks over at XDA developers have packaged together a nice little one-click method once you get all setup and running with ADB, and it’s rather easy.

For more details you’ll want to head to the XDA link below, which will have a few quick instructions and the download files for the AT&T and Verizon LG G2 root method. The process and app is in Chinese, but it’s all straightforward. But this might not be the best option for a first-timer. That aside, back up everything and you’ll be set in no time.

The LG G2 is pretty impressive, and our full review is coming up quick. The people at LG have included so much customization that it might not even need a custom ROM. You can change quick toggles, the on-screen Android navigation buttons on bottom to any shape, position, and color, and they have so many other things you’ll enjoy this phone either way. LG’s home launcher is customizable as well, so that’s a thing. I’d still root for all those benefits personally, but custom ROMs might not be needed. Proceed with caution and ask questions at XDA before you dive in.

Android APKTool v2 goes out with user friendly changes and under the hood overhaul

XDA Developers has just announced the availability of a new version of the Android APKTool. This software, which is used for decompiling and recompiling Android packages or APKs, has undergone a code overhaul and includes changes that will make it easier to use.

android-apktool-v2

Re-engineering Android packages is one of the a favorite activities of developers and modders, leading to the creation of many tools for that purpose. One of the most popular ones is the APKTool from XDA member Brut.all. Unfortunately, the tool only provides a command line interface that raises the entry barrier for novice tinkerers.

XDA member Flextrick developed the Android APKTool to make things easier for beginners by providing a graphical user interface. For this new version, the tool underwent a massive code rework. Users now have an option between the Android package (APK) or Java archive (JAR) formats. A new folder structure was introduced to give a better overview of the package and modified files will now reside in their own folders.

As in the previous version, the tool runs only on Windows with Java and .NET frameworks installed. At the moment only the Windows 8 version has been updated to version 2.0 while the Windows 7 version is stuck at 1.2. However, the Windows 8 version will still work on the Windows 7 aside from a broken layout.

CyanogenMod cLock widget released for all Android 4.2 devices

There are plenty of perks that come along with running CyanogenMod, however there are times when you cannot install a custom ROM for one reason or another. Or for that matter, there may be an app or other form of support that keeps you running stock. Regardless though, one of those CyanogenMod perks is a widget called cLock.

cm-clock-widget-01

Well, in a bit of good news that widget has been released for devices that aren’t running CyanogenMod. Specifically, the cLock widget is available for all devices running Android 4.2 or later. Basically, for devices that support lock screen widgets.

Anyway, the cLock widget is available from the xda-developers forums and is both free to download and free to use. You can get a look at the widget in the screenshot sitting above and otherwise — it shows the time and weather as well as any calendar appointments. There are options to customize each of those three items and you can also choose to not display an item.

For example, the screenshot you see above has the upcoming calendar items turned off. Some of the time settings include style such as the bolded hours and settings such as showing the next alarm. The weather is similar in that there are the expected options such as the update interval time and location, but you can also choose to show the location and also use metric.

cm-clock-widget-02
cm-clock-widget-03
cm-clock-widget-04

The calendar has quite a bit of options available. Here you can choose to turn this off or on and also which items to display. Some of the settings include being able to choose which calendars are shown, how far the app should look ahead, to hide all-day events and more. You can also adjust the font colors throughout the widget.

That all being said, those looking for the cLock widget can grab it using the xda-developers link sitting below — just make sure you are able to download and sideload apk files because this one is not in the Play Store.

Android 4.3 leaks for the Nexus 4, teases us one last time

Android 43 leaks for the Nexus 4, teases us some more

Oh, Android 4.3, why must you tease us so? The new version of Jelly Bean‘s been making cameos all over the place for a couple months now, so it was only a matter of time until we’d see a build available for download. A working TWRP backup of Android 4.3 just popped up on XDA Developers thanks to Google+ user Jeff Williams, who recently purchased a Nexus 4 running the new version of Jelly Bean. Some industrious folks were then able to extract a system dump from Jeff’s phone (minus radio and bootloader, according to Android Police) and confirm that the build (JWR66N) is legitimate. Our friend Paul O’Brien over at MoDaCo is currently testing the TWRP backup. We’ll keep you updated as we find out more, but one thing’s abundantly clear: it won’t be long before Android 4.3 becomes official.

XDA user Schoolsux introduces TrulyClean script to remove bloatware from the Galaxy S 4

Delete-Bloatware-Samsung-Galaxy-S4

If you own a rooted Galaxy S 4 and you’ve decided to stick to the stock ROM, then you are without a doubt tired of the dozens of useless apps cluttering your drawer. Lucky for you, XDA Senior Member schoolsux, has developed the TrulyClean script that safely removes over 98 apps that aren’t crucial to the system. Not only does this method save a lot of time and energy, it will also bring you a noticeable boost in performance, and free up about 600-megabytes of storage.

TrulyClean removes everything from S Voice and Samsung Hub to more standard Google apps such as Gmail and Google+. While the standard script removes the stock browser, there is an alternate version that leaves it intact. Their is also a simple tutorial on editing the script to keep certain apps.

For anyone who has spent a minute in recovery mode, the TrulyClean script is very easy to install as it comes in a prepackaged flashable .zip folder. The developer recommends doing a full wipe before flashing, but its not a requirement. Just make sure to secure any vital data via your preferred backup method.

TrulyClean is available at the source below and is compatible with the i9500 and i9505 S 4. Happy flashing!

TrulyClean is available at the source below and is compatible with the i9500 and i9505 S 4. Happy flashing!

XDA user Schoolsux introduces TrulyClean script to remove bloatware from the Galaxy S 4

Delete-Bloatware-Samsung-Galaxy-S4

If you own a rooted Galaxy S 4 and you’ve decided to stick to the stock ROM, then you are without a doubt tired of the dozens of useless apps cluttering your drawer. Lucky for you, XDA Senior Member schoolsux, has developed the TrulyClean script that safely removes over 98 apps that aren’t crucial to the system. Not only does this method save a lot of time and energy, it will also bring you a noticeable boost in performance, and free up about 600-megabytes of storage.

TrulyClean removes everything from S Voice and Samsung Hub to more standard Google apps such as Gmail and Google+. While the standard script removes the stock browser, there is an alternate version that leaves it intact. Their is also a simple tutorial on editing the script to keep certain apps.

Sony ‘Honami’ camera app ported to Sony Xperia Z, ZL and Tablet Z

Honami camera app

Android 4.2.2 and root are required for camera app installation

The rumored Sony "Honami" — Sony's potential flagship phone for 2013 — is said to be a camera-centric smartphone with a 20-megapixel camera and a 1/1.6-inch sensor. While this sounds like it will make for some amazing pictures, software can be just as important as hardware when it comes to digital photography.

Owners of the Sony Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, and Xperia Tablet Z can preview some of this software now on their own devices. Thanks to krabappel2548 of XDA Developers, users on Android 4.2.2 that have a custom recovery installed (i.e. are rooted) can check out the "Honami" camera app in action. Flash and HDR were recently fixed, and a script was added to remove the old camera app upon installation.
