Flashing Ubuntu on your phone will wipe your phone completely, including all your app data and media.
If you already have a custom recovery installed, skip the first 3 steps; just reboot into recovery and start from step 4.
Transfer the downloaded Phablet armhf package, and the device-specific zip file to the internal storage of your device (not in any sub-folder). Once the Phablet armhf package has been installed, use the same method to install the device-specific zip file (the one with maguro, mako, grouper or manta in its name, depending on your device). On a phone such as Galaxy Nexus or Nexus 4, simply swipe leftward from the right edge, and you’ll land on the home screen. Connect your device to your computer via USB, and put it into bootloader mode using the same method you used when installing Ubuntu. Now transfer the backup you had taken on your PC back to your device, taking care to keep the folder structure the same. Next, flash a custom recovery using the same method used above, and reboot your device into recovery. After the backup has been successfully restored, reboot your device into system, and you should have everything back the way it was. UPDATE: Our detailed review of Ubuntu Touch Developer Preview is up, so don’t forget to check it out!
How well would it work on the sprint version, i mean, the phone is pretty much the same other than maybe the radios.

Just like the rumors speculated, the Fire Phone features a 4.7-inch display with an HD resolution.
Amazon added dual Dolby stereo speakers to the Fire Phone for surround sound while watching videos on the device. Even though the Fire Phone’s display may not be Full HD or Quad HD, Amazon wants you to watch as much Prime content as possible with the phone. Amazon clearly hopes that the free trial will inspire Fire Phone users to join Prime if they haven’t already.
Firefly is a great new feature that helps you find the products and objects you encounter in the real world, online.
If it’s not a product you’re looking for, but rather information on a painting, tourist site, or something else, Firefly will hook you up with a Wikipedia page on the subject.
The Fire Phone has a dedicated button for Firefly, so you’ll be able to find and use the feature easily. Prior to the launch of the Fire Phone, everyone was talking about the brand-new 3D effects that would revolutionize how you will use Amazon’s smartphone. Amazon is calling its 3D effects “Dynamic Perspective.” In essence, the new feature merely allows users to interact with images, Web pages, and other content like maps, in a different way. With a simple tilt of the Fire Phone, you can change the point of view you have of each image, map, or 3D-enabled app you are looking at on the device. Bezos also spent a lot of time detailing how it created the 3D effect and accurate head-tracking software. In order to accurately track users’ head motions, Amazon added four front-facing cameras, placed at a 120-degree angle on each corner of the device.
Amazon finished up its explanation of the new feature with a call to developers to convert their Android apps into better ones that work on the Fire Phone. The 32GB version of the Fire Phone will cost $200 with a two-year contract, or $27 per month if you choose a Next plan. Internally, the Chromebook pixel comes with a dual-core i5processor, 1 Terabyte of Google Drive cloud storage, and up to 64 GB of built-in storage.

Google’s changed the way Android looks, created their own new launcher, made the dialer much smarter, further consolidated their messaging services, given the Email app love, and added many new features for app developers to take advantage of.
You can easily install the Google Experience Launcher on any Android device running Android 4.1 or later.
Whenever you get a phone call, Android can now query Google’s servers to provide caller ID information for you. The most immediately noticeable change is the shift from the Tron-like neon blue of Android’s Holo interface to a new, neutral gray color. There’s a new Process stats option on the hidden Developer Options screen that displays more information about each running process and its memory use.


DID YOU KNOW?Most birds are tetrachromats, they see colors in four channels instead of the three channels humans see; this super-color vision is believed to assist them in food gathering and mate selection.

A Linux based OS running PC is not everyone’s cup of tea and it’s hardly fair to install or even dual boot a new OS only to be able to install a new one on your mobile device – and one that is already highly experimental at this point.
AddictiveTips will not be liable if your device gets damaged or bricked during the process. If you are using another recovery such as TWRP, use its own backup method to perform a full backup. This step is important because the next steps will wipe everything from your device, including the backup you just took from recovery. If you are using another recovery such as TWRP, use its own wiping method to perform the same three wiping operations.
If you are using another recovery such as TWRP, use its own installation method to flash this file. You can either use the Guest account without any password, or one of the preconfigured accounts using the first name of that account (in all lowercase letters) as the password. Let’s get the latest version of Android up and running on your device, and restore your backup to take everything back to the way it was.
You will probably need to extract the contents of the extracted file again, to get a folder. If you are using TWRP or any other recovery, use its own backup restoration method to restore the backup you took before Ubuntu installation.
We review the best desktop, mobile and web apps and services out there, in addition to useful tips and guides for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS and Windows Phone. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos says the Fire Phone is optimized for one handed use, even though it has a larger display. As an incentive, Amazon includes a 12-month membership to its Prime service with the purchase of a Fire Phone.
To help new Fire Phone owners make the most of Prime’s video content, it added a feature called Second Screen.
Amazon says that the camera shutter will stay open longer to ensure that even low-light shots look stunning (while this would be fine for static shots, we aren’t sure how this would affect action scenes). The ultimate show-rooming tool, the feature uses the one of the cameras on the front of the Fire Phone to recognize books, DVDs, phone numbers, QR codes, CDs, games, and all other kinds of media. Amazon says that it can recognize more than 100 million items, including 240,000 movies and TV shows, 160 live TV channels, and 70 million different products.
Bezos finally showed off the 3D effects during the June 18 event and it doesn’t appear to be hokey or silly, like we feared it would be.
For example, when you’re looking through a rack of dresses online, you can move through to the next one by tilting your phone to the right or left. Infrared sensors and a great algorithm were also needed to make Dynamic Perspective work perfectly.
For example, if you’re late to a meeting, the calendar app will alert you and you can send a quick message telling everyone to start without you. Buyers will also get 12 months of Amazon Prime for free when they buy the phone; current Prime subscribers will also get 12 months for free if they buy the Fire Phone. On Android 4.4, the Google Experience launcher has a partially transparent status bar and navigation bar on the home screen, showing off your wallpaper and hiding those black bars. The battery, Wi-Fi, and cellular icons on Android’s status bar, for example, are now gray.
For example, Netflix’s red app will look better with gray system icons than blue ones.
It’s a built-in system feature that supports both Google Cloud Print and HP ePrint by default, but developers can add support for new types of printers using the API. For example, you can tap the menu button in Chrome and tap the Print option in the menu to print a web page. This file picker supports both local, on-device storage and cloud storage services like Google Drive. This means that apps like games, video players, and eBook readers could use the entire screen for content.
When immersive mode is enabled in an app, a swipe from the top or bottom edges will reveal the hidden status bar and navigation bar. The Mail app now looks almost like the Gmail app and shares many of the same navigation features and settings.


This should give developers more information they can use to optimize their apps’ memory use.
According to the invite, company CEO Tom Moss and Shankar Parasaram, Head of India Operations will also be available for an exclusive meet at the event. Luckily, there is an easier and much more more familiar way to get Ubuntu Touch up and running on your Nexus devices, irrespective of the OS on your PC. Even though we’ve already heard about most of the specs, the device, once revealed, is still impressive, particularly the MayDay, Firefly, and Dynamic Perspective 3D features. With Second Screen enabled, you can then use the Fire Phone to learn more about the content you are watching by pulling up info via IMDB (Amazon calls it X-Ray, which also works when playing music or reading books). When you hit the Mayday button, a helpful tech expert will appear to solve all your problems. Once Firefly figures out what you’re looking for, it searches for that product in its database and finds a version that you can buy on Amazon. In the maps app, he took a look at the Empire State building from several different angles. Amazon created a brand-new Shopping app, which lets you view products from every angle imaginable. One of the coolest Dynamic Perspective features lets you access app menus more easily, too.
Another feature lets you set your ringer to silent for a set amount of time, in instances when you really don’t want to take any calls. The options in the quick settings panel are also gray, as are the accents on the official Google Keyboard. In the near term, this means that any device with NFC should be able to use the Google Wallet app.
This means Android should perform much better on low-end devices and any manufacturers still using Android 2.3 Gingerbread on their cheapest devices should finally be able to upgrade.
Nextbit Robin is the first of its kind smartphone to use cloud technology to free up space from the internal memory of a smartphone. Amazon will also offer unlimited photo storage, so users can take as many pictures as they want without worrying about storage constraints. To view the menu on any app, all you have to do is tilt the phone to the left and it will pop up. It was initially launched on Kickstarter and easily managed to surpass its crowdfunding goal in just two days.
Whenever you use the file picker, you’ll be able to choose a file from any local source or cloud storage service. The company had listed India in its initial pre-order and it will be worth watching how the device is priced here. For example, when you’re in the messaging app and you want to send a picture, tilting your Fire Phone right will give you access to all your photos, so you can pick which one you want to send.
Nextbit Robin's selling point here is the intelligent cloud-based system which backs up unused app data to cloud storage.
With the Nextbit Robin, you will never run out of space as the phone backs up to the cloud when it is connected to Wi-FI.
And it will never put you in a situation where you have to delete something, to download a new app or click a photo The phone comes with 100GB of cloud storage free and users can buy more space if needed. Users also have the option of pinning apps, which won’t be removed in case of a space crunch.
Nextbit wants to create an experience that is as close as possible to pure Android and push timely updates.
As for specs, Nextbit Robin comes with a 5.2-inch Full HD display with Gorilla Glass 4 protection on top. The handset is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 SoC which was also used in Google's Nexus 5X and Motorola Moto X Style. Nextbit Robin's power button is at the right hand side and it also doubles up as fingerprint scanner.
