Motorola RAZR M and the RAZR HD both rooted

As expected by the Android community, root exploits for the Motorola RAZR M and the RAZR HD are available. An XDA member by the name of Dan Rosenberg posted yesterday the exploit to root most of Motorola’s new Android phones.

The root exploit works on the Atrix HD, and is claimed to work on the RAZR M and RAZR HD, as well as the Photon Q and RAZR i. If you’re considering buying any of these phones then this should help tip the scales. The instructions are simple and straight forward.

[How To] Facial Unlock on Samsung Galaxy SII

Android 4.0 has great functionality, design format and some very cool tools and gestures, making it easily the most stylish and smoothly running Android operating system of all time. But I didn’t really need to tell you guys that. However, one of the operating system’s most talked about features can now be used on the Samsung galaxy S 1 and 2.

The Facial recognition Unlock Feature gives the owner of the phone the ability to unlock their phone just by quickly looking directly at the front camera. Very cool in principle, but the system is a little flawed. Using a picture of yourself will also unlock your phone, giving anyone with a photo of you the ability to unlock ...
