HTC Makes The Extremely Leaky One X9 Official In China

HTC doesn't have to worry about the One X9 leaking anymore, because now it's official. It has a lot in common with the One A9, but the unibody metal design veers slightly away from the iPhone clone vibe of that device. The phone was announced in China yesterday, and that's where it's going to stay for the time being.

XDA Members Breathe New Life Into The ADT-1 With Android 6.0.1 'Pure Nexus' ROM

The ADT-1 was never released to the public, but handed out to developers after Google I/O 2014 as a test device for the new Android TV platform. It didn't get much attention from Google past Android 5.0.2, which was its last official update. However, developers are an unrelenting bunch and if they have an Android device lying around, you'd bet that they'll try to cook up ROMs for it as long as that's remotely feasible. (Exhibit A.)

So a few XDA members were tired of seeing the ADT-1 get shunned from OTA updates and decided to take care of the situation.

Activision Re-releases 'Call Of Duty Black Ops Zombies' Under A New Play Store Listing, Past Purchases Be Damned

Merry Christmas everyone! This jolly message comes to you courtesy of your beloved Activision Publishing developer who has decided to grab a few bucks from your stockings because you've been a bad kid this year and you deserve to be punished for liking Zombie games and causing virtual mayhem.

For some reason, Activision has decided to re-release Call Of Duty: Black Ops Zombies under a new listing on the Play Store. The first-person shooter that puts you at the line of defense against hordes of zombies dates back to 2012 when Liam called it "interesting" in his review. It has been stagnating on the Play Store with no updates since December 2013 with plenty of reviewers complaining about compatibility, bugs, and overall sluggishness.

Motorola Releases Android 6.0 Kernel Source For The Moto X Pure 2015

Motorola's Moto X Pure, codenamed Clark, is feeling super this Christmas. The device has begun receiving its Android 6.0 Marshmallow update toward the beginning of the month and now tinkerers and developers can delve into what this update is all about.

The kernel source files for the Marshmallow software have been released on GitHub. If you're a regular user, this has very little impact on you, but if you like to install custom ROMs or, even better, if you like building them, this source code should help everyone get more stable ROMs a little down the line.

This is the first non-Nexus Motorola device to see its 6.0 kernel source released, even though many Moto devices have already gotten their Marshmallowy OTA goodness.

A Closer Look At The More Product-Centered Google+ On Android (And, Yes, The Bottom Tab Bar)

Many a double-take were... taken? when the brand new Google+ redesign was unveiled. Not because the design didn't look great, or didn't perform well (as we know, the website is highly responsive and super speedy), but because of an interface element that appeared on the new Android app - the bottom tab bar.

Not since the days of holo have we seen the split action bar in Google's apps (unless you count the bar in Keep), so it seemed odd to find a bottom tab bar so prominently featured on almost every screen of Google+ in 2015. But there's more to the tab bar than just its unfamiliarity on the platform.
