The Galaxy S4 is already available for pre-order in some markets, but it will be a few more weeks until we see it in stores. Even so, it looks like a first root method for Samsung’s 2013 flagship handset is already available.
Xda-developer forums senior member as i9000 has posted instructions that will help Galaxy S4 buyers root their devices once they’re shipped.
However, there’s a small problem with this root version, as it will apparently only work on the GT-I9500, which happens to be the Exynos 5 Octa Galaxy S4 model. Most markets will receive (at least initially) the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 Galaxy S4 version (model number GT-I9505,) which will need its own root. We’ll be back with more details on that version when it’s available.
We’re not encouraging you to root your Android devices and install any custom software on them, and you’ll be the only person responsible for whatever happens with your handsets and tablets during such processes. If you do decide to go the root way, make sure you exercise caution and follow the available instructions (see Source link below,) especially if you’re not comfortable performing such tasks. Backing up the data on the device is also in order before rooting the device.
Will you use the Galaxy S4 as-is right out of the box, or will you root and further customize your experience?

Real Racing 3 finally arrives in the US App Store with fremium model and lots of in-app purchase options0
Its been a long wait for whatever reason but from today, Real Racing 3 has finally shown up in the US App Store. Real Racing 3 was released to other countries over a week ago but for for some strange reason it never showed up in the US App Store. That has now changed and you can now get your hands on this amazing looking driving game.
Hyper-realistic. Pure fun. And FREE. Real Racing 3 sets a new standard for mobile racing games – it really must be experienced to be believed. Trailblazing new features include officially licensed tracks, an expanded 22-car grid, and over 45 meticulously detailed cars from makers like Porsche, Lamborghini, Dodge, Bugatti, and Audi. Plus, racing with friends gets kicked into another dimension with the reality-bending Time Shifted Multiplayer (TSM) technology.
The game is free to download and play but has received a lot of criticsm for its fremium model. Once you have the game you are then faced with a plethora of in-app purchase options which if you are not careful can soon mount up and make Real Racing 3 a really expensive experience. Of course you don’t need to buy any in-app purchases but its hard to resist getting your car a spec bump to help you win more races.
Real Racing 3 is currently compatible with the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch 4th and 5th gen, iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4 and iPad mini; you must be running at least iOS 4.3. The game has also been optimized for the iPhone 5’s larger screen as well as being a universal binary for iPhone and iPad full screen gaming.

Despite Google’s Nexus 7 reportedly selling half the units than Apple’s iPad Mini in 2012, as well as being outsold by the Kindle Fire, the Nexus 7 is expected to sell 2 million more units on top of the unconfirmed 6 million units sold so far by the time the second generation Nexus 7 is released in June 2013, according to DigiTimes. That’s an estimated total of 8 million units sold by June this year.
According to Taiwanese suppliers, the Google Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire HD have set the price cap for mainstream tablets at 9, and thus other vendors have been driven to manufacture 7-inch tablets instead of 10-inch models. Since the Nexus 7 started selling, other tablet makers have launched, or are about to launch, 7-inch models of their own, priced at 9 or even more competitively.
As for the next Nexus 7 tablet, the first rumors have appeared suggesting the device will not come with a NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor, although the product is yet to be confirmed by Google.
Are you buying a 7-inch tablet this year?
Selling 10 million units of smartphones — a feat that LG reached back in December with its Optimus L-series lineup — is nothing to sneeze at. Now, the company has even more impressive news to share.
According to the Nexus 4 maker, an additional 5 million units of the series have been scooped up by customers in the past two months or so. In total, LG’s popular budget range has sold to the tune of 15 million units, with one L-series phone apparently sold every second.
Coupled with the reported brisk sales of the Optimus G and its Nexus twin, no wonder LG is moving up the Android manufacturer ladder. The Korean is showing no sign of slowing down, as it’s aiming to sell 45 million smartphones in 2013.
Helping the company get there is the successor to the L-series models. The new L-series II family — consists of the Optimus L3 II, L5 II, and L7 II — was announced earlier this week by LG, which as expected don’t offer anything too exciting in the specs department. But hey, as long as they’re priced right, there’s no reason why the new models won’t fly off the shelves.
