[Update: Maybe sooner] HTC One Android 4.2 update coming in “2-3 weeks,” Google Edition running stock Android also planned

For all the praise that the HTC One has received ever since its launch back in March, one major point of criticism has been the fact that the high and mighty smartphone runs on Android 4.1.2, and owners of the device have been impatiently waiting for the 4.2 update to arrive.

Now, according to Twitter user @LlabTooFeR, known for his usually accurate inside news on HTC, has announced on the social network that the 4.2.2 update for the HTC One could come as soon as sometime in the next “2-3 weeks.” Even an HTC employee has been mischievously tweeting lately that the update is incoming soon, so it seems like the One might surely be up-to-date with the times before the month ends.

But the good news doesn’t end there. Apparently, a “Nexus” version of the HTC One running stock Android, similar to the Galaxy S4 Google Edition shown off at I/O, is also in the works, with LlabTooFeR saying he knows “for a fact” that non-Sense (see what I did there?) One exists. I personally believe that Google is looking at launching Nexus versions of the flagship devices from different manufacturers each year, so while this could turn out to be a rumor, I’m betting it’s true. Actually, cancel that, I’m hoping it is true, as the amalgamation of stock Android with the HTC One’s hardware would be a dream come true.

The HTC One Google Edition is expected to be announced sometime this summer, and I wouldn’t put it past Google to make an announcement after the Nexus Galaxy S4 goes up for sale. For now users can look forward to the Android 4.2.2 update, which would add features like faster switching between apps, lockscreen widgets, quick toggles in status bar, accessibility improvements and more.

Update: Looks like the update might arrive in less than 2-3 weeks. @LlabTooFeR just tweeted this:

 

Hurry up HTC, the wait is killing us.

Download the Moto X Camera App’s APK [Guide]

There’s less than a week left to go before Motorola officially announces their flagship Moto X, and we’ve known pretty much everything about it thanks to numerous leaks and rumors and the like. A few features of the device’s camera were revealed in a leaked video earlier, and now the camera app from the Moto X is itself available for download, thanks to the folks over at Android Police.

The Moto X camera app sports a minimal UI similar to Google’s stock Android camera app. You can take a picture by tapping anywhere on the screen, and tap and hold to take multiple photos, with a number of screen counting the shots you’ve taken. A swipe from the left brings in a circular settings menu, and a swipe in from the right takes you to the gallery. Zooming in on a scene is as simple as swiping up and down on the screen, and everything seems to work effortlessly.

However, some of the features such as launching the camera app from anywhere with a few shakes of the device and slow motion video are currently not functional on non-Motorola hardware. HDR and panorama mode don’t work either, but all the basics such as photo taking, flash modes, geotagging, etc. work fine, so nothing should be stopping you from giving it a go on your device.

The camera will install as a separate camera app on your device (Android 4.1 and above are required), unless you’re on a Motorola device, in which case you will have to freeze your default camera app using something like Titanium Backup. The link to the APK is right below, so go ahead, give it a shot, and find a guide for how to install the APK right after the links (if you aren’t aware with manual app installation on Android).

Download Popcorn Time APK [Alternate Link]

Installation Procedure

  1. Download the APK file using the download link above. If you are using a download manager, the file may have downloaded as a zip file. In that case, rename it to .APK from .zip after downloading.
  2. Transfer the APK to your device.
  3. You’ll need a file manager to access your storage and the APK files. ES File Explorer is a good free option.
  4. Enable manual installation of apps by checking the Unknown sources option in Settings » Security on your device. On Android 2.3 and below, this can be found in Settings » Applications
  5. Open the file manager, browse to where you copied the APK.
  6. Tap on the file to start installation, keep clicking Next and then Install to install the app.
  7. That’s it, you now have the Moto X camera app installed on your device.

Here’s the new Camera App from the HTC One and Galaxy S4 Google Editions [Download]

That Sun Beam live wallpaper found on the stock Android HTC One and Galaxy S4 may be trending, but the new camera app that comes preloaded on those devices, the same one we saw on Android 4.3 on a Nexus 4, is what many were actually after, and now it’s available for download as well.

The new camera app includes an updated interface, with the main difference being that the camera options are now laid out in a half circle that makes them more easily accessible. Google has also added a timer mode, with the option to select between 1 sec to 60 second intervals, and when you take a photo, you get a huge countdown on the screen that looks pretty nice. Oh, and the volume buttons now act as a shutter key, so you can press either volume key to take a picture.

Well, that’s about it for the changes. The camera’s APK can be downloaded from the link below – installing it will replace your current camera and gallery app if you’re using a Nexus device, otherwise show a separate gallery and camera icon. The best part? Anyone can now use features such as HDR mode and the Photosphere panorama mode, the latter of which was exclusive to only Nexus devices till now.

The app has been tested to work on the Galaxy S2/S3/S4, HTC One, Galaxy Note 2, and on a Nexus 4, but it should work on mostly any device out there running Android 4.1 or 4.2. So go ahead and try it out.

  6. Tap on the file to start installation, keep clicking Next and then Install to begin installation. 
  7. Once installation is complete, you can open the camera by hitting its icon in the app drawer. If you’re on a non-Nexus device, it should show up as a separate icon than the default camera shortcut.

Samsung Galaxy S4 (GT-I9500/I9505) Root Guide

Android is an extremely customizable mobile operating system out of the box, which is more than sufficient for most users out there. But for anyone wanting even more control over their device, Android can be rooted, which is basically a method of obtaining privileged access to the system. Rooting allows a variety of changes and functions, including best root Apps for Android but not limited to accessing system files, removing bloatware, blocking ads, making advanced kernel-related changes such as overclocking, and more.

Samsung’s smartphones and tablets are usually the easiest to root (after Google’s Nexus devices, of course), and the Galaxy S4 is no different. It can be rooted using famous developer Chainfire’s CF-Auto-Root tool, and for those new to rooting or just looking for help, we have a step-by-step guide to walk them through the entire rooting procedure.

It’s pretty simple and a quick process, so without further ado, let’s look at how you can root your Galaxy S4.

The guide below is applicable only to the international unlocked of the Galaxy S4, both the quad-core and octa-core variants, with model numbers GT-I9505 and GT-I9500 respectively. Do not try this on any other Galaxy S4 variant.

Requirements

  • First, note down the model number of your Galaxy S4, it will be either GT-I9500 (octa-core variant) or GT-I9505 (quad-core variant). The model number can be checked in the Settings » About phone menu.
  • Download and install the drivers for the phone. Best way to get the drivers is to install Kies, though you can also download the separate driver package from here.
  • Take a backup of your installed apps and other data, such as SMS or Contacts, just to ensure you don’t lose important data even though the procedure is safe. Use apps like Helium or Super Backup.

Downloads

  • Download CF-Auto-Root for your device from the links below. The downloaded file will be a .zip archive. Extract it once to obtain a file whose filename starts with CF-Auto-Root and ends with .tar.md5. The file name may end at .tar, which is normal as Windows hides the actual extension from the file name, don’t worry about it. Ignore all other files.
    Download – GT-I9500 | Download – GT-I9505
  • Download Odin, which is the flashing tool that we’re going to use to flash CF-Auto-Root for rooting the phone. Extract the file you download once to get around 4 files inside a folder named “Odin_v3.07.”
    Download Odin (Odin_v3.07.zip)

Rooting Procedure

  1. Once you’ve gone through the above steps and downloaded the necessary files, turn off your phone and disconnect it from your PC.
  2. Press and hold down the Volume Down + Home + Power buttons until the screen shows you a “Warning!” screen. Here, press the Volume Up button to continue to enter download mode, also called Odin mode.
  3. Open Odin by double-clicking the Odin3_v3.07 file.
  4. Connect your phone to the computer (while it is in download mode.) Wait for the necessary drivers to finish installing. Once Odin detects the phone, the ID:COM box will turn yellow (or blue) and the words “Added!!” will show up in the white box at the bottom left of Odin. If you’re using a desktop computer, try to use the USB ports on the back as they’re more stable than the ones at the front.
  5. Now, hit the PDA button in Odin and select the .tar.md5 CF-Auto-Root file you extracted before. Again, even if it shows up as a .tar file, it’s normal and you should select it.
  6. Make sure you don’t touch or change any other option in Odin, and that the Re-partition option is NOT checked.
  7. Go through the above steps once again and make sure you’ve followed them to the letter, then click the Start button to start the flashing procedure. Make sure you don’t interrupt the phone’s connection to the PC.
    NOTE: If Odin shows a FAIL message or doesn’t seem to be progressing for more than 4-5 minutes, simply disconnect the phone, remove and re-insert its battery, close Odin, then repeat the procedure from the beginning. Also try using a different USB port if possible.
  8. Once Odin finishes flashing, the phone will automatically reboot. CF-Auto-Root will then perform the necessary steps to root the phone and show the associated messages on-screen, and once rooting is complete, the phone will reboot back into Android.

Your Galaxy S4 is now rooted, and you can confirm root access by downloading an app called Root Checker from the Play Store. Whenever an app requires root access, you’ll be prompted to grant it superuser permission, where you can either grant or deny root access to said app. Be sure to leave a comment if you run into any issues during the procedure, and we’ll do our best to help you out.

HTC Sense Camera App Ported to HTC One Google Edition ROMs [Guide]

Without the enhancements of HTC’s Sense UI, the camera app on the HTC One Google Edition (GE) misses out on many useful features while also offering lower image quality, so it’s unsurprising that many owners of the ‘normal’ One haven’t been too keen to try out the stock Android 4.2 ROMs ported from the Google Edition device. Now, that’s an issue that has been partly rectified, as the Sense camera app has been ported to work on the Google Edition ROMs, offering as good image quality as you’ll find on the non-GE HTC One.

If you’re wondering why I said the issue has only been partly rectified, well, it’s because two of the most loved features of the Sense camera – the Zoe recording and the HTC Gallery app – aren’t working on the GE ROMs. However, it’s only because the gallery app is separate from the camera app, with Zoe also a part of the gallery, and the gallery app hasn’t been ported yet. Once that is done though, users will be enjoying the full camera experience while enjoying stock Android on their HTC One, with all the bells and whistles that the stock Android camera doesn’t have.

The camera app can be installed just like any other app, with the APK available for download at the source link. So stop waiting and go get the Sense camera experience on an otherwise Sense-less ROM.

Installation Procedure:

  1. Download the APK file from the source link above. If you are using a download manager on your PC, the file may have downloaded as a zip file. In that case, rename it to .APK from .zip after downloading.
  2. Transfer the APK to your device.
  3. You’ll need a file manager to access your storage and the APK file. ES File Explorer is a good free option.
  4. Enable manual installation of apps by checking the Unknown sources option in Settings » Security on your device.
  5. Open the file manager, browse to where you copied the APK.
  6. Tap on the file to start installation, keep clicking Next and then Install to begin installation. 
  7. Once installation is complete, you’ll be able to access the Sense camera app from your apps menu.

[Guide] Install ClockworkMod (CWM) Recovery on Samsung Galaxy S3 (GT-I9300)

ClockworkMod is a term you’ll surely encounter in the Android world if you’re even remotely interesting in things like root or custom ROMs, and maybe even otherwise. Developed by koush (Koushik Dutta), ClockworkMod (CWM) is a custom Android recovery that makes the installation of custom ROMs and modifications possible, along with other advanced features (wiping data, backing up your phone’s ROM, and more) the stock Android recovery doesn’t provide.

If you’re looking to flash CWM recovery on your Galaxy S3 so you can enjoy all the custom ROMs and other hacks available for it (or just so you can obtain root access), then we have a step-by-step guide to help you through the entire procedure. Just set aside 15 minutes of your time, grab your phone, and you’ll have CWM recovery installed on it in no time.

So, let’s begin with the flashing procedure.

Caution: This guide is applicable only to the Galaxy S3 that has model number GT-I9300, do not try it on any other device. Also, while the steps have been checked to make sure they’re correct, we won’t be held liable if your phone stops working, blows up, or decides to start some other abnormal behavior (though none of that will actually happen).

Requirements

  • First, note down the model number of your Galaxy S3, it has to be the quad-core variant with model number GT-I9300. The model number can be checked in the Settings » About phone menu. Do not try this on any other variant like the dual-core U.S variants.
  • Download and install the drivers for the phone. Best way to get the drivers is to install Kies, though you can also download the separate driver package from here.
  • Take a backup of your installed apps and other data, such as SMS or Contacts, just to ensure you don’t lose important data even though the procedure is safe. Use apps like Helium or Super Backup.

Downloads

  • Download CWM recovery from the link below. Don’t extract the downloaded file even if it shows up as a compressed file.
    Download CWM
  • Download Odin, which is the flashing tool that we’re going to use to flash CWM recovery. Extract the file you download once to get around 4 files inside a folder named “Odin_v3.07.”
    Download Odin (Odin_v3.07.zip)

Install CWM Recovery

  1. Once you’ve gone through the above steps and downloaded the necessary files, turn off your phone and disconnect it from your PC.
  2. Press and hold down the Volume Down + Home + Power buttons until the screen shows you a “Warning!” screen. Here, press the Volume Up button to continue to enter download mode, also called Odin mode.
  3. Open Odin by double-clicking the Odin3_v3.07 file.
  4. Connect your phone to the computer (while it is in download mode.) Wait for the necessary drivers to finish installing. Once Odin detects the phone, the ID:COM box will turn yellow (or blue) and the words “Added!!” will show up in the white box at the bottom left of Odin. If you’re using a desktop computer, try to use the USB ports on the back as they’re more stable than the ones at the front.
  5. Now, hit the PDA button in Odin and select the recovery file that you downloaded before.
    NOTE: If Odin doesn’t show the file for selecting, check the file properties and make sure it has been downloaded as a .tar file. If it says it’s a zip file, rename the .zip part of the file name to .tar (if you can’t see either .zip or .tar at the end of the file name, uncheck the “Hide File Extensions for known file types” option in Control Panel » Folder Options » View tab, then try renaming the file).
  6. Make sure you don’t touch or change any other option in Odin, and that the Re-partition option is NOT checked.
  7. Go through the above steps once again and make sure you’ve followed them to the letter, then click the Start button to start the flashing procedure. Make sure you don’t interrupt the phone’s connection to the PC.
    NOTE: If Odin shows a FAIL message or doesn’t seem to be progressing for more than 4-5 minutes, simply disconnect the phone, remove and re-insert its battery, close Odin, then repeat the procedure from the beginning. Also try using a different USB port if possible.
  8. Once Odin finishes flashing, the phone will automatically reboot. You can now disconnect your phone.

How to Boot into CWM Recovery

  1. Turn off your phone. Turn off the phone. Then, press and hold the Volume Up + Home + Power buttons until the screen turns on, then let them go. After a few seconds the phone will boot into CWM recovery. NOTE: If it boots into Android Recovery instead of ClockworkMod recovery, see the steps below to find out how to fix that.
  2. After a few seconds, the phone will boot into ClockworkMod recovery. In recovery, you can tap on options to activate them, and reboot using the reboot system now option.

What to do if Phone Boots into Stock Recovery (Android Recovery) instead of CWM

If your phone is running a stock ROM, it is possible CWM recovery may get replaced by the stock Android recovery, as a auto recovery restore system on stock ROMs that restores stock recovery. If that happens, follow the steps below to delete the files that restore stock recovery, after which you can flash CWM recovery again to make it permanent.

  1. Your phone will need to be rooted. Use our guide to root your phone.
  2. Download the app called Root Browser (install the one by JRummy Apps Inc if you see many apps called Root Browser) from the Play Store. Run it after downloading, then press the OK/Yes button when it asks if it can download the necessary utilities.
  3. Now, go into the system folder and delete the file called “recovery-from-boot.p.” Then, open the /system/etc folder and delete the “install-recovery.sh” file. It is possible you might not see one of these files, which is normal, just delete the one you do find.
  4. Then, repeat the procedure to flash ClockworkMod recovery on the phone. This time, it will not get replaced by stock recovery after a reboot.

That’s it, ClockworkMod (CWM) recovery is now installed on your Galaxy S3, and you’ll be able to use it to flash custom ROMs, kernels, and make other changes such as making factory resets, and more. Do let us know if you encounter any issues during the procedure, by leaving a comment below.

Google launches Official AdSense App for Android (Finally!)

Considering Google’s main source of income is advertisements, and that a huge number of people out there using the ad platform use Android devices, it’s been odd that an official AdSense app hasn’t been available until now. But that changed today, as Google has finally released the official app to let AdSense users track all their earnings, ad performance, manage site reports, get payment alerts, and also select what kind of ads to display on their website/blogs.

Here’s the official description:

The Google AdSense app provides an easy way to access key data from your AdSense account. Access reporting features anywhere, directly from your mobile phone. The first version of the app gives you access to: the key earnings information, top custom and URL channels, ad units and sites reports, payment alerts.

You might like the 3DS Emulator provided by Nintendo, for more details, you can check 3ds emulator for android

The first version is a bit lacking in features, but now that we have an official app, we can look forward to Google making it better over time. Head to the Play Store to download AdSense for your Android 4.0+ device.

[Download APK] YouTube 5.0 with new UI, in-app multitasking, and more is out

Back in the beginning of July, word got out that Google was prepping up a massive feature update to YouTube for Android, and at long last that major update is rolling out to Android devices around the world, bringing some awesome new features and a brand new UI.

Previously rumored in-app multitasking is present, and will allow you to turn any video you’re watching into a small window that drops to the lower right corner of the screen and continue navigating through the app. On phones the floating video works only in portrait orientation (tablets support both orientations), and sliding the floating window sideways will close the video, while nicely fading out the audio. It all works amazingly well, and there’s nary a hiccup or stutter.

 

There are other changes as well. The UI has received a major makeover – gone are the red texts and accents, and the sliding navigation drawer is in line with other apps, such as Maps and Google+, and allows quick access to history, favorites, playlists, uploads, and watch later. The app icon has changed, the Google+ +1 button is gone, and the HD/HQ and CC options have been moved to the overflow (aka three-dot) menu on the top right (something I didn’t personally like as it takes an extra step to change quality of the video now).

 

However, one feature we were looking forward to is still missing, and that is background audio support. YouTube will still stop playing the video and sound when you go back to the homescreen or another app, but hopefully a future update will add background audio as well, something which third-party apps on other platforms do quite well.

As always, the update’s rollout is gradual and won’t be showing up on most people’s devices for a few days, but thanks to the folks over at Android Police, the APK of version 5.0 is available for manually updating right away (don’t worry, you’ll get future updates from Play Store even after sideloading the new version).

Feel free to hit the download links below to grab the APK, and use our installation guide if you need help with manually installing the update. Android 2.2 and above are supported.
