Android full versions

 

What is your android version? Are you current, or near-current? To find out what Android version you are on, simply go to your phone’s settings, tap on about and you’ll see your version number. It’ll be one of the listed ones below.

Android has come a long way since it’s introduction, and still has a long way to go. At least until we run out of alphabets.

The first commercial version, Android 1.0, was released in September 2008. Android is continually developed by Google and the Open Handset Alliance (OHA), and has seen a number of updates to its base operating system since the initial release.

The most recent major Android update is Android 6.0 “Marshmallow”, which was released in October 2015. Since April 2009, Android versions have been developed under a confectionery-themed code name and released in alphabetical order, beginning with Android 1.5 “Cupcake”; the earlier versions 1.0 and 1.1 were not released under specific code names:

Android, no doubt is the most popular mobile platform, powering more than 50% of devices on the market. With this number, it’s a great deal for businesses who want to expand to more customers. Imagine having all your customers accessing your services and products using an android app. The possibilities are endless. Android is open source. This has greatly helped in the vast number of users they have currently. Also, most mobile device manufacturers ship their devices with android pre-installed, with some customization.

And since Android is owned by Google, you can bet it’ll most certainly get better and better.

This also paves way for developers to market their apps as well, since majority of users will have access to their published apps (provided they market it well).

So in short, what do you think is the future for android? Will we see another giant taking over? Apple is probably behind in this category. But since Apple is Apple, their mobile OS will run on their own devices for sometime to come. Unless……

Based on the list above what’s your android version? Let’s see how many of our readers are into the android “game”.

How To Root An Android Phone in Less Than Five Minutes 730 340 geniustechhub

Yes. You just need your android phone and an internet connection. This is how to root most android phones, the easy way.

Android is a widely used mobile operating system, running on more than half of all smartphones currently on the market. Due to the open source nature of the operating system, developers tend to develop more apps for it than other brands.

But most of these apps require root access to function. Rooting simply means giving your smartphone deep level access to the operating system. It has it’s “good” and “bad” sides. The good side outweighs the bad side (in my opinion). For instance you have to have root access in order to be able to use the he powerful Titanium app. This app allows for you to backup and restore your apps, messages and a whole lot. It even allows you to remove unwanted apps that come bundled with your device.

But to get all these goodies, your phone needs to be rooted.

 

Ok enough talk already. Follow the simple steps below to get your phone rooted in under five minutes.

  1. Open your phone browser and go to this site (https://towelroot.com/)
  2. Tap/click on the Lamba sign to download the app (rooting app)

  3. Install app, then open it after installation. Tap on the Make it Ra1n button and wait for it to do its thing.
  4. You should get a success notice, that’s it. You’re rooted!
  5. Now head over to the Google Play Store and download these two apps: Super SU and Root Checker app.
  6. Super SU will handle any app that request for root access. The Root Checker will verify if the phone is properly rooted.
