Over the last few months, the staff at Cool Blind Tech have attempted their best at providing you with comprehensive information on how various devices can be modified to suit the needs of even the least and most technical among us. As originally pointed out in our First article introducing this subject matter, the legality of this varies considerably depending on your jurisdiction and country, and all of this will void your warranty in some form with your manufacturer and sometimes cellular company. We continued by dipping your feet into Flashing Nexus-based Android phones which provided you with a good grasp on how these devices can be restored to factory settings should anything go wrong. Leo also did a follow up podcast to this where he demonstrated the Nexus root toolkit , which gives you the ability to flash any rom after unlocking and rooting the bootloader of your Nexus.

The Nexus Root Toolkit is a very useful utility which can help you easily root your Google Nexus device. Despite its name however, this utility has much more to offer. It can lock or relock your bootloader, help you flash custom and stock roms, perform a backup and restore of your device among many other things. In this podcast, we walk you through the NRT interface and demonstrate a few of its features. Please keep in mind that NRT relies on ADB and Fastboot in order to work properly.

Join us as we talk about Mac OS 10.11 and how mature the platform might be, iOS 9 and its features or surprises, along with the Apple Watch which is becoming so much more, quicker than people have thought.
