xda-developers177,465For the last 10 years, XDA-Developers has been a central pillar in the world of mobile device development. What started as a shared idea of a few enthusiasts, hackers, and developers, has evolved into a massive online community with members and developers from across the globe. Despite the size of our community, our ethos still stands strong: to advance the technology we use by means of research and collaboration.XDA:DevCon is all this but taken a step further by tearing down the virtual walls and closing the distances that separate our community members from each other. The main objective of the conference is very simple: to take what we normally do in our forum and bring it live to maximize the experience and to learn from the very best. Most importantly, we aim to do it while having fun, just like the hobby this is meant to be. We’ll learn, laugh and have fun in the true spirit of XDA – collaboration.Join us in honor of our Tenth Anniversary at our first Developer Conference – for developers by developers.XDA:DevCon 20132013-08-09 15:00:0064G+

Harshit Gupta0Hey all, try this long ago +Robert Scoble shared circle of techies....it's what can get you started here on g+2012-07-11 14:48:57243112CC G+
Kyle Beck66So, I know a lot of my friends who have joined +Google+ wonder "What's the point? I have a Facebook." Well that comparison was flawed from the beginning, although many people made it while trying to describe G+. There are similarities, but one of my favorite features in G+ has been the ability to share Circles with others. In fact I'm not sure I would see the point if I hadn't been shared this very circle by +Robert Scoble (IIRC) early on in my G+ membership. It has proven an invaluable source of up-to-the-minute Tech News over the past year and really showed me how G+ is very different from FB.See, when you visit FB the information you receive is solely from your family and real-life acquaintances. This can be great for keeping up with people you don't see regularly, etc., but it is very hard to reach out to new people who share your interests through FB. Not so on G+. You can create and share groups of friends and pages (Circles) to organize your social interests. In effect, this creates dynamic communities where you can choose who you interact with.Anyways, I hope you will consider adding this Circle, packed full of Tech Enthusiasts. If you don't really use G+ or wonder what the point is, that goes double for you!2012-06-30 00:28:364881003CC G+
Karl Hughes7,360Geeks, Designers, and Interesting PeopleThis is my most watched circle, so I figured I would share.  These people tend to post the stuff that I read and respond to most often, so if you like technology, you should add them.Enjoy!2012-06-13 14:22:22446124CC G+
Alister Macintyre7,115Some people appear to be well informed on many topics, and like to share what they have figured out.  Here is a circle of prolific writers about tech topics.  You might want to put some of them in separate circles, to avoid being washed away in combination streams into a roaring torrent of information.2012-06-09 23:29:01244010CC G+
Scott Ayres6,421Saw +Robert Scoble share this circle earlier. Full of bloggers, tech oriented people and etc. All are great Gplusers and will add a ton of value to your stream.2012-04-11 20:35:35500011CC G+
Robert Scoble1,146,151Here are 500 of my favorite Tech Journalists, bloggers, and pundits. I'm sharing this since I am seeing lots of new people coming over and I'm sure they are looking for some great people to circle here. Unfortunately I can't share everyone that I have in this circle (I have 575 in this circle on my screen, but Google+ only lets me share 500 with you). Lots of interesting tech bloggers and journalists here. Hope you enjoy. This is the circle that starts my morning every day.Speaking of Tech News, I'm off to +VMware. They are announcing new Cloud Foundry stuff this morning. So, you'll probably see some tech news from the folks in this circle.2012-04-11 16:01:035005737104CC G+
Robert Scoble700,661Yes, it's a ghost town of TECH INDUSTRY JOURNALISTS AND BLOGGERS. Pay no attention to anyone from the Wall Street Journal who snuck onto this circle. Yes, this is 500 people, but they are almost all active.2012-02-28 03:05:115005538103CC G+

Robert Scoble152,040This is the best circle for Apple tech news tomorrowThis will be the best circle to watch for info on Apple tomorrow (it's of 250 of the best tech journalists/bloggers/thought leaders on Google+).

Plus, I'll be live on +Shira Lazar's show starting at 10 a.m. tomorrow with live reports.Anyway, if you want to see how the tech press covers this, follow this circle (make sure you put these in a new circle of your own so you can delete them if they get too noisy for you).I'm watching thousands more, too, and will share anything good.You will be flooded tomorrow with Apple news. If you can't handle this, just unfollow for the morning and everything will calm down pretty quickly after noon.Robert Scoble shared a circle with you.2011-10-03 21:26:3925067127124CC G+

SuperSU v2.00 released

I've just uploaded v2.00 to Google Play. v2.00 not because this version is something special, but because we ran out of v1.xx numbers.

The changelog ( http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=23427824&postcount=3 ) is long. If you're checking that link, note that v1.97 was also never released on Play, so if you haven't followed the development releases, the changes listed there are also relevant for you.

The flashable ZIP is available from my own server as usual: http://download.chainfire.eu/supersu

The discussion thread on XDA-Developers can be found here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1538053

There are actually still a couple of known issues with the very latest AOSP builds, and a large number of points on my to-do list, but you have to release at some point ...

There is currently an $18,000 bounty available for root/unlock on the VZ & ATT Galaxy S5. Pretty incredible, there is clearly a huge demand for this at least in the dev community.

Just a heads up for webmasters out there. If you are going to intentionally or unintentionally rate-limit Google crawlers, make sure to do it with a 5XX error instead of a 4XX error. I decided that a 429 response (aka "Rate Limited") was better than a 503, but Google now lists them long-term in webmaster tools as "Other Errors." If I send a 503 then it is reported as a "Server Error" and Google will try that url again shortly rather than putting it in the long term "Other" category. Needless to say I switched our rate-limiting error back to a 503. Perhaps this should only be used as a response to an API rate-limited error.

All of that graduate degree work in sensor networks finally paid off, I'll be attending the #projectara  conference in April! Is anyone else coming to this event? Trying to figure out the best way to take advantage of being there in-person; I'll be doing some posts and videos for +xda-developers but also evaluating the technology overall. Looking forward to it!

"All we can say is: Wake up USA! How on Earth did a country, which we Europeans have always seen as “The Land of Opportunities”, become a replica of Rome in its last days. Completely systematic, bureaucratic and oblivious to opportunities."

KitKat will make your SD Card completely useless: per the Android API specification, apps can no longer write files to your SD card.  And Samsung is following it.

This only applies to dual-storage devices, i.e., devices with a user-writable internal flash storage AND a removable SD card.

From http://source.android.com/devices/tech/storage/index.html:

"The WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE permission must only grant write access to the primary external storage on a device. Apps must not be allowed to write to secondary external storage devices, except in their package-specific directories as allowed by synthesized permissions."

If your device has user-accessible internal flash storage, your SD Card is a "secondary external storage device".

What this means is that with KitKat, applications will no longer be able create, modify, or remove... more »

Just received a Galaxy Note 12.2. The multitasking capabilities are really impressive. Android tablets are becoming more and more desktop-like! The screen estate on here is incredible. A+ would recommend.

This is such a horrible deal for consumers. Since Comcast invests heavily in FCC commissioners, offering many high paying jobs after they leave the board, the cynical me says they will get the approval.

Since net neutrality is now off the table, expect even more of a chokehold consumer 'rights'. TV/Internet is often an effective monopoly or duopoly in many markets already.

Really intrigued by new systems set up to compensate open-source developers fairly. Here are two recently-launched systems which aim to solve this problem:

https://whispersystems.org/blog/bithub/
http://tip4commit.com/

Overall I think the idea is a huge one, and possibly a game-changer when it comes to open source development. Bitcoin is used so there is no overhead for fraudulent transactions and also minimal fees for transferring funds.

Here is my main question: How is a pull-request valued? You can have good commits or bad commits. You can have a 20k line commit which adds to the codebase but does not add much functionality. Or you can have 20 lines that change the world. Or you can add a few characters to fix a security bug. How do you value those contributions? Peer review is one way but then you have a lot of overhead and contention regarding how... more »

Just bought a mini-helicopter on Overstock with Bitcoin!

The transaction was flawless. I paid via the Bitcoin client on my phone using the QR code that popped up. The transaction was accepted right away and my order is 'confirmed.'

Although this is great news for Bitcoin, I wouldn't expect a ton of movement on BTC prices. Overstock is likely converting the transaction right over to USD which essentially dumps the BTC right back onto the market when you sell it. Though, perhaps they are saving some of it...

Either way, this is a huge step for the Bitcoin economy in general, great job Overstock!

Is that Europa Universalis running on SteamOS? #shutupandtakemymoney

I really like this idea but it all comes down to 

a) Control system. Keyboard? Mouse? Gamepad? 
b) Software. Can it play movies? What kind of games will it have?
c) Hardware. Is this made for HTPC hardware?

Linux has been missing it's '10 foot interface' for a long time, I'm really curious what they have come up with!

I remained silent about the whole Focal relicensing troubles for now. There was a lot of drama between the app being GPL, and the fact Cyanogen Inc wanted to use it, which drove some frustration between me, some CM contributors, and CM leaders. As a result, to avoid any problem, Focal has been removed from CyanogenMod. I think you deserve explanations and “behind the scenes” view on how all of this happened, and to know it’s not just a last-minute decision or ragequit.

This is the true, fully-featured story of the “Focal drama”. It's not a rant about how Cyanogen Inc is bad or anything (and it can be a good thing, with a few conditions, see at the end of the post), but just an insight on how this all happened, and how some people were and are feeling.

Flashing latest Ubuntu Touch on the Nexus 4 (mako). It has been a while since I've checked out the alpha version and it sounded like they are approaching release, so wanted to give it a spin and see what it can do. Using a Virtualbox Ubuntu install with USB passthrough. It utilizes a CWM based recovery to flash the OS.

Finally have a moment to sit down and share my experience at #xdadevcon13 . All I can say is, wow! What a great event in an awesome location (Miami). After interacting with so many from the Android community online it was great to interact with and learn from so many IRL. 

As far as the conference itself goes, there were some great presentations on a wide variety of topics. From the +Ubuntu Touch project, to NFC tags from +Pearl Chen and an Android security talk from +Justin Case, all the presentations were great learning resources. From the sponsor side, the +OPPO team was there in force (all the way from China!) demoing the Find 5 and other phones (I ended up buying a Find 5 - more on that later) and the +Sony Xperia team was also demoing some neat hardware. +Michael Hall presented a workshop for developing on Ubuntu (touch/desktop) and wrote an app to interact with the XDAForums.... more »

Statusupdate 26th May

- This update includes the beginning stages of a complete design overhaul, getting HALO closer to Google's NOW/Keep/future Android 5 style. This may contrast honeycombish Jellybean a tiny bit but so what, so do all new Google apps by now.

- Tons of UI bugfixes and tweaks, markers helping you to task better.

- Googles anti overlayprotection that blocked the install button is temporarily fixed in this one.

-Small style changes to PIE.

- Changes to Launcher2, probably bugfixes

This is still an alpha due to some remaining low level blemishes that affect HALO.

Lack of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) support in AOSP is becoming a major issue to purchasers of Android devices. Looks like I may need to buy my wife an iPhone so she can use her Polar H7 heartrate monitor. Fitbit flex and many other auxiliary devices are using this protocol. Demand for this is pretty strong in the community (https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=33371) - what's the holdup?

Here's my SimCity gameplay experience video. Fun, am I right?

Purchased the physical version of the game, partially because I know that launch day server issues frequently cause problems with downloading. But with EA's "You Must Be Online At All Times" DRM, it makes it impossible to play without them keeping up their part of this bargain with satan.

Proud to announce a project I've been working on the past few months. XDA is now using Swappa as it's official marketplace for buying, selling and trading phones. Buying OR selling on eBay has its pitfalls, and this was simply a better option. So happy to be working with these guys.

Just when you the think the mobile phone OS landscape has solidified between iOS and Android, multiple promising new operating systems leap onto the landscape. And I'm not talking Windows Phone OS ;). It is great to see Linux (and BSD) underpinning so many of those, from Sailfish to Ubuntu Phone and Firefox OS.
