  1. What can you do with chromecast rooted? When is the Xperia Z Ultra forum coming on xda? I have the phone and want to talk roms and roots

  2. lol by reading the tittle I thought someone found a way to take a photo using the proximity sensor AS A CAMERA sensor. Now DAT would be interesting… hhaha 😛

  3. Hey Jordan,

    Ive been a fan since TWIL, and I can honestly say that the Nexus 7 (2013) is AWESOME. I absolutely love it and TOTALLY recommend it if you're still considering it.

  4. sony still hasn't rolled out the 4.2.2 update for unbranded xperia z, yes I can either flash my phone myself or root it to get the update but its sad that they are leaving behind a portion of their users
