Samsung's Galaxy S will bring an 'evolution' at MWC in February

Samsung intends to bring a Galaxy S successor to MWC 2011 .The company’s turning up the hype machine with an update to its Samsung Unpacked website. There, for the pleasure of your eyes and the tickling of your imagination, Sammy has positioned its familiar super-selling Android smartphone alongside a not-too-cryptic message promising that "evolution is fate." We’re smelling a cute play on words here, similar to what LG did with its Revolution handset, potentially implying that the next Galaxy flagship will have LTE (Long Term Evolution) connectivity built in. That, along with the promised dual-core chip within, should easily outshine the Infuse 4G (which has HSPA+ and a single-core Hummingbird inside) recently announced for AT&T in the States. We’ll get the next dose of our teasing on February 1st, the site promises, before the full unveil in Barcelona on February 13th. Our hearts are all aflutter already.

Samsung to bring a 4-inch Galaxy Player at CES 2011

December 27, 2010 Leave a comment

 

Samsung Hub is reporting this morning that Samsung intends to introduce a new Galaxy Player to the tech gathering known as CES early next month.The Hub’s information details a 4-inch Super Clear LCD display with 800 x 480 resolution, Android 2.2 as the operating system (replete with Sammy’s own TouchWiz layer, by the look of that screenshot above), a 1GHz CPU, 3.2 megapixel imager on the back plus a front-facing camera, and a 1200mAh battery. Android Market access is also in the cards, apparently, but when (or if?) this most worthy successor to the Galaxy Player 50 will make its US retail debut remains a mystery for now. We’ll be sure to ask when we get our hands on the new hardware next week.

How to root Nexus S

December 23, 2010 2 comments

That was fast wasn’t it!!! After managing to unlock the bootloader, some hackers have now managed to get full root access on the Google Nexus S, only a few hours after its public launch.

For those of you who don’t already know, rooting your Android phone gives you full access to the file system. This will enable you to modify the phone’s firmware to whatever you want to have on your phone like skinning the UI, modding, overclocking CPU, flashing custom ROMs and so on.

Here is an image posted by well known Android developer clockwordmod, which shows Nexus S running custom Clockworkmod recovery.

First, reboot into your bootloader/fastboot mode. (Volume + Power Up, or adb reboot bootloader)

fastboot oem unlock

Then, install this recovery:

fastboot flash recovery recovery-clockwork-herring.img

Then boot into Clockwork recovery and install the Superuser zip file (adb reboot recovery, or from fastboot choose recovery):

To install a rooted/insecure boot image (adb has root):

ROM Manager support is coming shortly.

 

There’s a full how-to guide as posted on XDA-Developers.
