Summary: AT&T One X buyers who were fortunate enough to grab one of these devices before the customs ban soon faced disappointment when they brought them home hoping to start flashing custom ROMs. While some shipments of these devices have started to trickle back into the U.S., it was discovered that HTC and AT&T had placed some new restrictions on the bootloader which would not allow a quick unlock using the HTC bootloader unlock tool. Fortunately, the dev community doesnt let such paltry things stop them and a quick edit of some hex code can trick your device into thinking its Canadian for the purposes of unlocking the bootloader. http://goo.gl/0hlTj AOKP is at it again. Build 37 for the TF300t is out, released by HillbillyHacker over on our forums. This is a blind unofficial build, as none of the members of Team Kang have a physical device to play with. http://goo.gl/JN06z Marty Eich brought up a great topic in his Friday's Big Question feature: Is the VZW Galaxy Nexus experiment a failure? In his article, he writes how the Verizon Nexus is still sitting on 4.0.2, while the GSM version has been updated to 4.0.4. http://goo.gl/8dPDi Google announced that they have added in-app subscriptions to their Google Play Store in-app billing feature. This feature will allow developers to charge a subscription fee for services such as magazine or music subscriptions. This new feature will add convenience for users interested purchasing such subscriptions. We've launched our latest contest in conjunction with CruzerLite! Today is the last day to submit your design, so you'd better head over to RootzWiki.com and check the rules. I've also posted all of our submissions so far in our Site News forum! http://goo.gl/uJ5GC Thanks to Swappa for sponsoring today's podcast, check them out at www.swappa.com for the very best way to buy or sell gently used Android devices.
