-l337 HAXX0R SK1LLZ
Tap “make it ra1n”If you device DOESN’T reboot, your fine. If it reboots, try THIS version of towelroot.3. 
-Root it . All that towelroot does is allow you to install/inject a Superuser application.
-I would suggest to use and recommend SuperSU. Install it now (from google play).After it installs, open it and let the magic happen. Reboot when it tells you to.

 4:

This step is entirely optional. You don’t need to do this if you just want root.

-Continue if you want to make full nandroid backups, or install custom
software to your device.

-Download Flashify.
This  allows you to flash boot.img’s and recovery.img’s without an unlocked bootloader!

 

Find and download a custom recovery for your device.Custom recoveries such as, TWRP, CWM, and PhilZ, all need to be
built for a specific device. This means that you can’t just find one and
install it on just anything. You need to find one specifically for your device.For this you need to head to google, so search in this format:<device> <recovery> xdaI recommend that you use TWRP, it’s my personal preference, they are
all about the same though.

The “xda” is there so that you’ll be directed to the xda-developers forums. They
are THE SOURCE for anything regarding android mods.

 

– Install that recovery!Once you have downloaded the recovery file, open Flashify.
Tap on Recovery Image, tap on “Choose a File,” navigate to “Downloads” then tap the recovery that you downloaded.

How to Root the Samsung Galaxy S5

galaxy-samsung--644x362 I. Before You Begin

1. You must be using a KitKat device. There are a bunch of ones that work, but nowhere has a good list of  them all so I’d suggest giving this a go and if it doesn’t work, there’s no harm done (it’ll just fail). We DO  know, though, that (at least at the time of writing this) it for sure works on any Galaxy S5 from AT&T and  Verizon.

II. Root the Samsung Galaxy S5

1. Go to Settings > Security > and check Unknown Sources ON to allow us to install third-party apps.

7. Tap Install.

8. Pull down the notification shade by pulling down from the top of the device.

10. Tap on the Make it Ra1n button and wait for it to do its thing.

III. Install SuperSU

To stop unauthorized apps from using the new found root access, we’ll install SuperSU.

1. Go to the Play Store on your device.

2. Search for SuperSU.

3. Tap on the one by Chainfire and install it.

4. Once done, tap the Open button.

Apple earnings boosted by strong iPhone sales

Analysts were focusing on iPad sales, as overall tablet shipments slowed for the first time in 2014

Apple has reported quarterly profits of $7.75bn  – up 12% on the same period last year.

The company sold 35.2 million iPhones from March to June, an increase of 13% from the same time in 2013.

The company is seeing strong growth in BRICS countries – Brazil, Russia, India, South Africa, and especially China where iPhone sales rose by 48%.

However, sales of its iPad tablet computer fell for the second quarter in a row, down 9% to 13.3 million.

In a statement, Apple chief executive Tim Cook said he was “incredibly excited” about new operating systems for iPhones and computers as well as “new products and services that we can’t wait to introduce”.

New phone

There is much interest in the tech world about Apple’s next iPhone model.

For the last two years the company has launched a new phone in September and this year analysts are expecting phones with bigger screens.

The iPhone is crucial to Apple’s success as it generates more than half of the company’s revenue.

There was some surprise among analysts that sales remained strong in the most recent quarter, as often buyers hold back if they suspect a new model will be released in the near future.

How to Install ClockworkMod Recovery on the Pantech Breakout

The Pantech Breakout has been around for quite a while now and, with its 1GHz CPU, 512MB RAM and 4-inch display, can now be termed as a low-end Android smartphone.  But if you are thinking of milking some more out of this aging device, rooting it and installing a custom recovery is the way to go and the guide below will help you get past one of these two steps – Installing a custom recovery (ClockworkMod Recovery in this case).

I.  Before You Begin

1.  This procedure is known to work with the Pantech Breakout running Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread.  If you are running anything other than this, try it at your own risk!

2.  People have reported problems running this procedure on Windows 7 64-bit systems, as the drivers seem to not take properly; so make sure you try this on a Windows 7 32-bit operating system.

2.  Charge your device to 75% or more.

3.  Back up everything you feel is important before you begin.

II.  Necessary Downloads

BreakoutAllinOnePkg.zip [Link available under the Downloads section of this post]

III.  Installing ClockworkMod Recovery

1.  Extract BreakoutAllinOnePkg.zip to a folder on your desktop.

2.  In the extracted folder, go to the Driver subfolder and run Motorola_End_User_Driver_Installation_5.2.0_32bit.exe.  This should install the necessary drivers required for the procedure.

3.  Enable USB Debugging on your device.  To do this, go to Settings > Applications and tick the USB Debugging checkbox.

4.  Connect your device to your PC via a microUSB cable.  If there are any drivers being installed at this point, let Windows 7 do so.

5.  From the extracted BreakoutAllinOnePkg folder, run RecoveryAIO.bat.

6.  Type in 1 and then press the Enter key.

7.  Wait until the process is complete.

8.  Once CWM is installed, pull the battery out of your device, put it back it and immediately press and hold the Search and Power buttons until the splash screen is finished loading.  [This will prevent the device from overwriting the custom recovery with stock; if this happens, you’ll have to go through the whole process again!]

You should now have ClockworkMod Recovery installed on your Pantech Breakout!  To enter recovery, hold the Search and Power buttons when the device is off and once in recovery, use the Volume Up/Down keys to navigate and the camera button to select.

Google launches Nexus 5 handset with Android Kitkat

Nexus 5Google has officially unveiled the latest incarnation of its flagship Nexus smartphone.

Made by LG, the handset is smaller, slimmer and lighter than the Nexus 4 but its 4.96in (126mm) touchscreen is bigger.

The Nexus 5 has been developed to show off the capabilities of the new version of the Android operating system.

Called Kitkat, the software has been designed to work well on both high-end smartphones and cheaper feature phones.

The alliance with Google has helped bolster LG’s fortunes even though, according to statistics from Gartner, it is still a long way behind rivals Samsung and Apple. Read more of this post

Apple’s shares fall on emerging market concerns

Apple’s shares fell more than 5% as investors worried that the firm’s latest iPhone models may not help it increase its share in emerging markets.

It launched two models on Tuesday, the iPhone 5S and a cheaper iPhone 5C.

But the basic 5C model, with 16 gigabytes of storage, has been priced at £469 ($740), which analysts said was still expensive for emerging markets.

Apple has found it tough to boost its share of those markets against competition from firms such as Samsung and Huawei.

“Investors were put off that Apple’s price point didn’t go low enough to attract a new market,” said Mark Luschini, chief investment strategist at Janney Montgomery Scott. Read more of this post

Could iPhone’s fingerprint sensor help kill off passwords?

It’s a barely noticeable stainless steel ring, embedded in the new iPhone’s home button.

But the fingerprint sensor built into Apple’s latest smartphone, which was unveiled on Tuesday, could signify the beginning of the end for the pesky password.

The Touch ID feature will allow users to access their phones with a press of the finger, without the need to remember complex sequences of letters or numbers.

Biometric technology, which uses the body’s unique features as an identification technique, has been around for a while.

Scotland Yard used fingerprints as early as 1901, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle knew enough about the distinctive features of the human ear to work it into one of his Sherlock Holmes stories. Read more of this post

New iPhones: The internet reacts to Apple’s launches

iPhone 5C

Apple’s annual iPhone update.

Yes, the high-end 5S handset gets a fingerprint sensor. Yes, there’s a new cheaper version, the 5C, made with plastic back which comes in colours. Yes, both come equipped with Jony Ive’s revamped iOS7 which is now ready for launch.

But perhaps the biggest surprises were over what was not included.

No NFC (near field communication) chip to turn the handsets into digital wallets. No boost in the number of megapixels on the camera. No option for 128 gigabytes storage and no bigger screen. Read more of this post
