Motorola releases Moto G5S Plus kernel source code

Thursday, September 21st, 2017

Just yesterday, Motorola uploaded the Moto Z2 Play's source code to GitHub. It seems like the Lenovo-owned company has been working hard on getting these kernel sources out, as it today released the source code for the Moto G5S Plus, which has the odd code name of "sanders."

The Moto G5S Plus sits at the upper end of the mid-range smartphone offerings, thanks to its dual rear camera setup, metal construction, and 5.5" 1080p display.

Motorola uploads Moto Z2 Play kernel source code to GitHub

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017

Motorola may not be great with updates anymore, but at least it's pretty good at getting kernel sources for its new devices out in a timely manner. The Moto Z2 Play (albus) is the latest Lenovorola device to have its source code uploaded to GitHub.

In case you didn't know what the source code is used for, it greatly assists developers in getting custom ROMs like LineageOS fully functional. It's still possible to develop a ROM for a device without the kernel source, but it's significantly more difficult.

OnePlus 3 closed beta group receives 8.0 Oreo update with 3T and 5 builds coming soon, public beta slated for end of September

Thursday, September 7th, 2017

OnePlus has always been praised for having clean, near-stock software, and a big advantage of this is that updates are much easier to push out. Case in point: the OnePlus 3 has already received Android 8.0 Oreo via the closed beta group, with the newer 3T and 5 receiving it soon as well. Plus, OnePlus is hoping for an Oreo public beta by the end of September.

The Shenzhen-based company is reportedly aiming to be seen as "quick to update." It's a bit strange how the OnePlus 3 is receiving this beta before the newer 3T and 5, but hey, it's pretty nice to see this much support for an older device.

Qualcomm has no plans for a Snapdragon 836, despite Pixel 2 rumors claiming otherwise

Tuesday, September 5th, 2017

We've been hearing for some time now that the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL would have either the Snapdragon 835, Qualcomm's current flagship chipset, or a slightly more powerful Snapdragon 836. However, it turns out that there was never a Snapdragon 836 in the first place.

Speaking to a source familiar with Qualcomm's plans, we can confirm that there are not, nor have there ever been plans for a 'Snapdragon 836,' as has also been reported by XDA Developers.

Android Oreo feature spotlight: Rollback Protection, a new part of Verified Boot, won’t allow you to start a downgraded OS

Tuesday, September 5th, 2017

This flew under our radar back at I/O, but it's big news. On compatible devices, the new Verified Boot changes in Android 8.0 Oreo will prevent a device from booting should it be rolled back to an earlier firmware. The new feature is called Rollback Protection. So if your phone is flashed with older software, you (and your data) are protected from whatever potential security vulnerabilities may have been present in earlier versions. 

For 99% of users, the new Rollback Protection is great news.

LG V30 camera app gets ported to G6, adds nearly all of the V30’s modes and features

Saturday, September 2nd, 2017

One of the biggest reasons people flash custom recovery or ROMs is so that they can add features from newer phones onto their older devices. Case in point: after less than a week of the LG V30 being officially announced, its camera app has already been ported to its little brother, the G6.

This port, done by Fulmics ROM and Team Venom developer xpirt, brings virtually all of the V30's new camera features, save for the "Cine" mode.

Canary Flex camera is unable to be set up with Oreo devices, but a fix from Google is on the way

Saturday, September 2nd, 2017

With every new OS release, there are bugs that will need to be worked out, and Android Oreo is no exception. One of these bugs is completely preventing Oreo devices from setting up the Canary Flex security camera. Fortunately, Canary and Google are both aware of the situation, and a fix is on the way.

This issue comes courtesy of our dear leader Artem, who's been testing out the Flex and has run into some classic #artemsluck.
