tagged , , ,

Titanium Backup, one of the best Android tools for rooted devices has gotten a major update. The software update called version 4.8.4, brings numerous bug fixes, here’s a complete changelog of what the new update brings.

  • Improved app freezer to be ICS-friendly by default. This resolves the problem where apps couldn’t be defrosted on Samsung ICS devices. The freezing method can be changed in Preferences -> Troubleshooting settings.
  • Improved “Power defrost” which is fully compatible with ICS now. This allows Samsung ICS users to defrost anything, including apps that were frozen by previous TB versions.
  • Fixed incorrect display of apps that were disabled by ICS.
  • Fixed FC in case of connectivity problems while uploading backups to Box.
  • Minor bugfixes.
  • [PRO] Added support for syncing backups to Box (Box.net) cloud storage.

Full Box.net support is something that’s sure to raise more than a few eyebrows. While Box.net support is more than enough reason for you to use the latest Titanium Backup update, but keep in mind— it’s only for the paid version at this time. The update is available in the Play Store, in both free and paid flavors. So if you’re on a rooted device, go grab it today by hitting on the link below or scanning that QR code below.

Root Explorer update features tabbed interface, cloud storage support, and improved notifications

by Aditya Thawardas on
tagged , ,

root_explorer_updateRoot Explorer is one of the top file management apps around for Android users, due in large part to its straightforward approach and simplified style. Still, the user interface was a bit dated until today’s update. The app has added tabs for easy navigation, as well as a few extra interface tweaks including a new action bar and fully customizable list icons. Looks aren’t the only thing that has changed, as Root Explorer now syncs with Dropbox, Google Drive, Box.net, or any standard SMB server. In addition, processes can now occur in the background, with notification alerts to let you know what’s happening.

You can find the change log after the break, as well as a download link for the updated app. » Read the rest

Titanium Backup Pro Now Syncs To Google Drive

by Ed Caggiani on
tagged , ,


For root users, there’s no question that Titanium Backup has been the preferred backup app of choice. Its ability to sync your backups to Dropbox and Box.net has helped it become a must-have app. With its latest release, the paid version, Titanium Backup Pro, has upped the ante and added support for syncing to Google Drive. But how have they pulled this off since there is still no Android-to-Google Drive API yet? Apparently, the devs were able to use the “old” Google Docs API to get things working. Clever lads.

Google Drive support isn’t the only new feature. Hit the break for the full changelog and download link.

Google’s Drive Cloud Storage Service Nearing Launch

by Jack Holt on
tagged , , , , ,

Step aside Dropbox. Google is close to launching its own cloud-storage service. Like its soon to be rival, Google’s Drive was created in response to the growth of internet-connected devices such as smartphones, tablets and media players.

Drive will take advantage of the rise in “cloud computing” by storing files like photos, documents and videos online. They will sit on Google’s servers and will be able to be accessed from any web-connected device. This will allow folks to easily share files with others. For example, if a person wanted to send an email containing a video shot from their smartphone, they could easily upload the video to through the Drive mobile app then email folks the link rather than the file itself.

Drive is one of a few recent attempts by the Search giant to gain lost ground from smaller internet start ups that are doing well in hot new areas. Others include their fledgling social network Google+, mobile article reading app Currents to take on Flipboard, and developed services that include buying business-reviews company Zagat to take on Yelp.  » Read the rest

Get 50GB of Storage Through Box.com/net Without Root With This Sneaky App

by Jack Holt on
tagged , , , , , ,

If you are the owner of a Sony Xperia Play or any one of the various LG smartphones then you should be aware of the deal where Box is giving away a 50GB upgrade to its cloud storage service until  the end of this year. This means that you have until the day after tomorrow to get in a 50GB lifetime storage limit. This deal however, did leave the rest of us out in the cold. Perhaps the reason for this was some sort of promotional deal between, Box, LG, and Sony as a way to make their phones more marketable, but alas, I do not know for sure.

But fear not if you aren’t the owner of a Xperia and LG smart phone as the folks over at XDA have created an app that will give any Box account the 50GB upgrade. Thanks to redphx you can do this without needing to root and editing your build.prop or even witchcraft. All this program requires is the ability to log into your Box account.

tagged , , , , , , , , , , ,

A new partnership with Motorola has secured a spot for Box.net’s cloud storage app as being preloaded on future Xoom Android tablets worldwide. The announcement was accompanied by news of additional partnerships with VMware, Ping Security and Salesforce Chatter also, however its mobile strategy seems to make perfect sense as Box’s service offers companies and individuals a cloud structure that keeps everyone connected with great ease from anywhere.

Box’s on-going relationship with HP, which made Box the only preloaded app on the TouchPad (with 50GB of free lifetime storage) looks to be going strong as well. HP’s Vice-President of Strategy and Operations announced this week that their business PCs will start shipping the Box app preloaded beginning with SMBs in North America with a future intent to go global.

Even if you haven’t had the opportunity to try Box’s services out yet, with the way they are expanding their market, chances are you’ll meet soon enough.
