Cyanogen Banned From DroidForums.net Part Deux - Update

If you were following the news at all yesterday regarding anything to do with ROMs and the Android dev community, then you might have heard or read about what has been going on between Cyanogen and DroidForums.net (and The BlackAndroid who developed the Ultimate Droid ROM).

In short, Cyanogen, a well respected, if not the most respected, Android ROM developer, called out another developer by the name of The BlackAndroid for ripping part of his code without giving credit.

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.

OnePlus 2 Review: The Flagships Are Safe For Now

OnePlus came out of nowhere last year with a phone that appealed to a lot of cynical smartphone-using curmudgeons. A device with great specs, capable software, and a reasonable price? What's the catch? Oh, invites. Well, the OnePlus One still managed to win a lot of fans, and now the company's followup, the OnePlus 2 is (sort of) available. This device also has an invite system, and the price is a little higher. Is it worth scrounging and begging to get an invite to buy this one, though? After all, they claim it's a "2016 flagship killer." Let's find out.

[Deal Alert] The Amazon Fire Phone Is $139.99 For 32GB, $159.99 For 64GB On eBay With A Year Of Prime And Free Shipping

Do you want an Amazon Fire Phone? If you do, I'll bet you want it at a discount - even with a free year of Amazon's Prime shipping/video/music service, it's a hard sell at two hundred bucks. It's a good thing, then, that the Fire Phone is so often on sale. The latest discount comes courtesy of an eBay seller, who's getting rid of the phones for as little as $140. That includes free shipping and free access to Prime, bringing the effective price down to $40 for a contract-free phone. Not bad.

That $139.99 price is for the 32GB model.

    Boxer Launches Their Own Calendar App With 'Send Availability' Feature Integration With Email Client

    Boxer, the company behind the slick email client that now ships as the default provider on Cyanogen OS, has just announced and released a new calendar app. The aptly-named Boxer Calendar will offer some useful integration with Boxer Email and will also be pre-loaded with Cyanogen OS 12.1 along with premium features.

    Header_all_devices

    Boxer Calendar isn't exactly reinventing the wheel, but aiming to provide a visually attractive option that plays nicely with their email client. The key differentiating feature in that vein is the ability to quickly send your availability to meet, which only works with Boxer Email.

    For those who do a lot of scheduling, this can potentially fill in a real gap.

    Google Promises A Stagefright Security Update For Nexus Devices Starting Next Week

    So you might have heard about the Stagefright vulnerability that was published yesterday. While there's no evidence of a widely-used hack, the potential for malicious MMS attacks via Android's built-in media handling system (which could theoretically affect the majority of Android devices currently in operation) is certainly cause for concern. As reported on our original post, Google has known about the vulnerability since April and has been working on patches to fix the problem.

    We've received a statement attributed to a Google spokesperson [emphasis ours]:

    This vulnerability was identified in a laboratory setting on older Android devices, and as far as we know, no one has been affected.

    Hands-On With The OnePlus 2: Wood, Fingerprints, And Mute Switches

    I've never used a OnePlus One for more than a few minutes, and I've never really had much of a desire to (hey, just being honest). After hearing Artem's many horror stories about the device, seeing the slow OTA timeline of Cyanogen Inc., and being perfectly happy buying a full-on flagship phone since no-interest financing is readily available here in America, the One never really caught my attention as a product. So, I like to think I'm going into the OnePlus 2 with slightly fresher eyes here, though what that really amounts to in any substantive sense I have no clue.

    Vast Majority Of Android Devices Are Vulnerable To 'Stagefright' Exploit That Can Be Executed Via Text Message, According To Researchers

    In a blog post published today by the researchers at Zimperium Mobile Security, the group divulged an extremely widespread security vulnerability that can be exploited with nothing more than a targeted MMS message. The hole exists in the part of the Android operating system called Stagefright, which handles the processing of certain types of multimedia.

    How it works

    If targeted, the hypothetical hacker needs only to send an MMS message, which in many cases doesn't even need to be read before the attacker gains access to the victim's microphone and camera.

    Startup Nextbit Plans To Launch A Smartphone, Will Offer Details In The Coming Weeks

    Nextbit hasn't been in the news much since its public debut last year, but that's mostly because its services are geared toward OEMs. The last we heard from Nextbit, its Baton multi-device app sync service was entering the testing phase on CyanogenMod. That was last year, but now the company is taking on a new challenge—hardware. Nextbit plans to launch a phone.
