The HTC One X hasn’t even gone on sale yet, the device will be available withing a couple of weeks, but Android developer Paul O’Brien from MoDaCo has already cracked the HTC One X’s software.
He has also released a tool that will let you root the HTC One X, called Superboot which writes a boot image to the device, and that is used to root the handset.
Superboot is a boot.img that when booted, will root your device the first time you boot (installing su and the superuser APK). No need to flash any partitions, no need to mess around with ADB, no messing with the contents of your data partition, no overwriting the shipped ROM on your device, just boot the boot image using the instructions below and you’re done!
You can find out more details over at MoDaCo.
All work and no play makes even the hottest smartphone downright dull. It’s with this in mind that Samsung is showcasing Rovio’s latest creation, Angry Birds Space, running on the Galaxy Note at SXSW in Austin, Texas. We took a moment to get our feisty paws on the demo, which showcases the weightless, space-like trajectories that players must contend with in the game. Exclusive to the Galaxy Note, users will find a bonus level of play, in addition to the free Danger Zone add-on — a collection of 30 levels that’ll be available to the masses as an in-app purchase. If you haven’t been keeping score, the game will make its official debut on March 22nd. So what’re you waiting for? Hop the break for the PR and watch as we take revenge on those fiendish pigs!
Cupertino would like to formally thank you for your interest in iWork.com, but before the summer’s through, it’s hoping you’ll be stuck with your head firmly in the iCloud. Apple sent an email notice out this week, letting iWork.com users know that, as of July 31st, it’ll no longer let users publish or share documents through the service. Moving ahead, the company’s focused on making iCloud the document sharing iService of choice. For more information on how to tie up those iWork.com loose ends as the deadline draws near, click on the source link below.
Let’s say you’ve just landed on home soil and happened to meet a charming partner during your stay abroad — yet your unrequited love is separated by a nasty language barrier. Sure, it didn’t seem to matter in the moment, but now that you’ve moved onto — you know — communication, you could use a bit of an assist. Thankfully, the folks at MyLanguage seem to have a worthwhile solution with the new Vocre 2.0 app for iOS. The software allows two individuals to engage in video chats in their native tongues, and the app removes the language barrier by providing translations (both text and spoken) on-the-fly. While Vocre 2.0 is currently in private beta, it’ll debut as a free, ad-supported application. Further, users may take advantage of paid, premium services that include on-demand human translation. You can follow a similar story of two young lovers in a video after the break. Think it’ll work out for ‘em?
