CyanogenMod disables root access by default, now requires user configuration

Friday, March 16th, 2012

CyanogenMod disables root access by default, keeps it as an optionHoly crap! CyanogenMod, the custom ROM of choice for many power users, will no longer offer root access upon first install. Now before you panic, let’s make this part clear: everyone so inclined may still enable superuser access — for ADB, apps or both — from the Developer Options menu. The biggest change, in fact, is that CyanogenMod is making a significant departure from the majority of custom ROM developers, which offer root access to all users by default (and often without their knowledge). The move is an attempt by CyanogenMod leaders to make the platform more secure, and given the number of ROMs that are based on CyanogenMod (or glean its packages), we wouldn’t be particularly surprised to see this feature become more commonplace amongst other custom Android ROMs. To learn more about the rationale of the project leaders, be sure to hit up the source link below.

Nokia N98 leak validated by N8, is there a QWERTY slider brewing up in Espoo?

Sunday, May 2nd, 2010

Just gaze upon those curves up above and tell us what they remind you of. Yes indeed, the Nokia N98 — which seemed so futuristic we were inclined to dismiss it as the product of a hyperactive imagination — is today looking all too credible thanks to the obvious design similarities it shares with the officially released N8. Starting with the distinctive tapered edges with contrast coloring, moving through the black bezel-sporting display, and jotting down to the positions of the Nokia and N00 logos as well as the Options menu, the viewer can’t help but be convinced that this February leak came with no small portion of truthiness to it. Now, we don’t live anywhere near Espoo, so we can’t tell you whether this was just a precursor to the N8, which lost its physical keyboard and N9x naming scheme to become the beastly media phone we know today. But wouldn’t it be lovely to believe Nokia’s working on all cylinders and planning to introduce a 4-inch QWERTY variant of its new flagship?
