Jide Technology shifting away from consumer market, Remix OS discontinued

Monday, July 17th, 2017

There have been plenty of attempts to make Android a desktop operating system, with most of them not being very good. Jide Technology burst onto the scene with a Surface Pro clone running the company's own 'Remix OS' ROM in 2015, and later released a small desktop PC as well as a version of Remix OS for standard x86-based PCs.

Jide has posted a statement to its various social media profiles, explaining that the company is shifting away from consumer products:

Over the past year, we received an increasing number of inquiries from enterprises in various industries, and began helping them build great tools for their organizations by leveraging Jide software and hardware.

[Deal Alert] This hosts file modifier is free on the Play Store right now, and it doesn’t need root

Saturday, July 15th, 2017

If you do any kind of web development work, you've probably had to modify your computer's hosts file from time to time. If you're not familiar with it, the hosts file is a list of IP addresses and their assigned hostnames. Modifying the actual hosts file on Android requires root access, but this tool uses Android's VPN API to achieve the same functionality. And for the next week, it's free on the Play Store.

TWRP released for Snapdragon Galaxy S8/S8+, but not the US models

Saturday, July 15th, 2017

Despite all having the name "Samsung Galaxy S8," there are in fact dozens of different variants of Samsung's flagship phone. But all the S8 devices worldwide have one of two processors - the Qualcomm 835, or the Exynos 8895. TWRP for the Exynos models arrived in April, but now it's time for the Snapdragon variants.

Now before all of you get excited, you still need to have an unlocked bootloader for this to work.

We’re ending support of Google Contributor 2.0 because it’s a huge mess and bad for our readers

Thursday, July 13th, 2017

As you may have noticed, we have been running Google Funding Choices for the past month or so on Android Police. Today, I'm announcing that we're pulling support for it. Funding Choices is riddled with issues, and we get feedback about buggy or just plain awful behavior - like the whole site being blocked - every single day.

Funding Choices and Contributor 2.0 are easily the most beta products I've ever tested from Google, and are not ready for prime time.

TWRP adds support for the OnePlus 5

Friday, July 7th, 2017

One of the better aspects of the OnePlus 5 is that the phone is pretty developer-friendly. There are already a few custom ROMs and kernels available for the device, as well as unofficial builds of TWRP to flash them. Thankfully, TWRP has begun officially supporting the device, so you won't need to use unofficial ports anymore.

OnePlus 5 support is being maintained by Dees_Troy on XDA, and there don't seem to be any bugs with this official release.

Six new Moto Mod concepts announced, including DSLR lens, DirecTV, and “Moto 360 Camera” attachments

Tuesday, July 4th, 2017

Back in 2016, Motorola committed to releasing twelve Moto Mods per year - a rather ambitious amount. However, it appears that the Lenovo-owned company hasn't forgotten about that promise, as it revealed six new Moto Mod concepts a few days ago at an event in Ghana. Moto has shown off Moto Mod concepts in the past (alongside production Moto Mods), but these are new.

This event in Ghana was hosted along with MTN, a large mobile carrier there, and many other existing Motorola phones were unveiled there.

TWRP adds support for the international LG G6, Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 LTE, and Marshall London

Saturday, July 1st, 2017

When we last looked at TWRP, the project had added support for a whopping 17 new devices. Granted, most of those were variations of three Samsung devices, but it's still impressive. Since then, three more devices have been added to the official builds - including the LG G6.

The G6 model in question is 'H870,' commonly referred to as the International model. This is a different variant than the US carrier and unlocked versions (H871, H872, US997, etc), so don't go flashing this on your shiny new G6 you purchased from your carrier.
