Not-so-hot on the heels of the firmware rollouts to T-Mobile and Sprint HTC One (M8) variants earlier summer, the AT&T-branded model is finally receiving OTA love in the form of an update to Android 4.4.3, plus an additional few application updates and optimizations.
The changelog isn’t too exciting, unfortunately, unless “security fixes” really float your boat.
Still, who can say no to free updates? (more…)

The Blackhat 2014 conference is taking place this week in Las Vegas, a conference which Dan Rosenberg, the man responsible for exposing numerous security exploits on Android devices, is speaking at. You may recall his previous work that unlocked the bootloader of a number of Motorola DROID devices, something that developers had attempted for years to try and accomplish without success.

The phone isn’t all that old here in the US, but already the LG G3 has been rooted on AT&T and Verizon. For anyone who is still keen on tweaking their phones and throwing on custom ROMs in the future (once a custom recovery is released), this is great news for you. (more…)
When developers work as a team, nothing is impossible. Merely weeks after the Android L developer preview released, a sprightly collective over at XDA has managed to build a working ROM based on the preview for the aging Nexus 4. (more…)
When Google released the Android L Developer Preview last week to the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 (2013), I can imagine that a number of you were disappointed – namely those with a Nexus 4, Nexus 7 (2012) or Nexus 10. While Google still hasn’t released flashable images for any of those devices today, they have pushed Android L code for each to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP),
