[Update: Survey closed] Google wants experienced developers to go to Mountain View and give feedback on Android

The vast majority of companies use some form of market research to communicate with their customers and ask them what they want. Google is no different, but this latest attempt is pretty cool: the company is asking for Android developers to fill in a form describing their experience with the operating system. Google will then choose a few select applicants to go to Mountain View to discuss their thoughts on Android development.

The form asks interested devs to list their apps and what categories said apps are in, if they develop for Android for a living, and how long they been 'with Android.' Google says "Your participation will directly impact our product roadmap and plans for 2017," so the chosen few may be pretty influential on Android development and everything that encompasses.

VentureBeat posts first live photo of the Galaxy S8, claims massive 5.8" and 6.2" displays, March 29th announcement

VentureBeat has just posted what is believed to be the first photo of a real, live Galaxy S8. Two of them, in fact. Samsung's unreleased smartphones have seen rumors hit a fever pitch in recent weeks, and these photos confirm a number of key details about the devices, which are expected to launch to retail some time in April.

Blass's photo would seem to confirm our own suspicions that the fingerprint scanner has been moved to be adjacent to the camera module, an odd location to be sure, but there's no doubting what that thing off to the right is. We also see a USB Type-C port (I know, it looks a bit uneven, that's just camera distortion), 3.5mm headphone jack, and a bottom-firing speaker.

Official root .zip package for LineageOS available for flashing

So, LineageOS has been out for a few days now. As promised, .zip packages for rooting the ROM have been put up on the community project's site, as it is not pre-rooted when flashed.

Interestingly, this uses Superuser rather than SuperSU to achieve root. Either way, root is achieved through flashing this package once the main ROM has been flashed. It also needs to only be flashed once; subsequent updates will keep root privileges. There are different packages depending on whether the device is 64-bit or not, and also packages to remove root if you so wish.

Of course, this is only the official (and recommended) root package.
