Cyanogen Banned From DroidForums.net For Calling Out BlackAndroid – Drama Ensues

Today seems to be the day of drama in the wonderful Android world that we live in. It’s no secret that people rip apps off the Android market and post them elsewhere for free. It’s also no surprise that with Open Source material, people base their apps/Roms off others' work and with that, you always give credit where credit is due.

However, a certain someone, named The BlackAndroid, over at DroidForums, would rather take people’s work, mod it and call it his own.

Like Stealing Candy From A Baby Phone: HTC One Mini 2 Will Not Be Updated To Lollipop

In response to a question posed on Twitter, HTC announced that the HTC One Mini 2 will not be updated to Android 5.0.

Sony To Release New Bootloaders That Allow Devices To Boot From Recovery, Making Custom ROM Development Much Easier

Sony has recently been among the friendlier companies for custom ROM developers, but their devices still had a major hitch. They could not be booted from recovery, which meant third-party software had to modify the build system and if things went wrong, it was a lot more difficult to fix. To address this issue, Sony will begin releasing new bootloaders to allow booting from recovery.

This was first reported at FXP, home to developers who work exclusively with Sony devices to bring custom ROMs like CyanogenMod to end users.

OnePlus Finally Begins Open Sales Of The One, No Invite Necessary; Co-Founder Teases 'OK OnePlus' Voice Activation Feature

A little less than one year ago, I called the OnePlus One "the best flagship phone you can't buy" in my initial review. The phone had some impressive hardware at an amazing price, and in many ways it still does, but the system of invitations and qualifications built around actually buying the One made obtaining the device an exercise in frustration. It's taken them eleven months (and what seems like dozens of separate promotions and half-measures), but you can finally order a OnePlus One without an invitation of any kind starting today.

[Weekend Poll] Are You Using A Custom ROM On Your Phone?

Surprisingly, we haven't asked this one more than once! Actually, I don't think we've ever asked it exactly like this, and it'll be an interesting one to watch. We did, however, ask you about six months ago whether your device was rooted. A full 63% were in the "yes" camp - let's see how this poll's results compare.

Eventually dubbed OxygenOS, the company has been working on getting the software out the door for several months. OnePlus promised to have it done by March 27th (today), but that's not happening.

Root Method Now Available For Verizon's Motorola DROID Turbo - With Some Big Drawbacks

Pity the poor Verizon customer, whose options for user-moddable Android phones are more limited than any other US carrier. It's particularly cruel, then, that Verizon tends to get some awesome Motorola exclusives in the DROID line. 2014's entry is the DROID Turbo, which is basically the Nexus 6 crammed down into the 5.2-inch body of the second-gen Moto X, plus the usual DROID Kevlar styling and an enormous 3900mAh battery.

Microsoft Partners With Samsung, Dell, And Other OEMs To Preload Office And Skype On New Android Phones And Tablets

It should come as no surprise that Microsoft wants to have a larger footprint in the mobile market. So the company is taking one of its flagship products and having it shipped preloaded on a significantly larger number of phones and tablets. No, silly, not Windows. I'm talking about Office.

Microsoft has announced that it is partnering with a good number of OEMs to have Office shipped out of the box on a plethora of hardware over the next year.

OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei stated on Twitter early this morning that the company's One and only phone will be receiving its CyanogenMod 12S update (read: Lollipop) in "mid to late" March. Pei also implied that a similar timeline was in place for the company's in-house-ish Oxygen OS ROM.
