An Android, iOS and C# developer by day and a Linux enthusiast by night. I also enjoy web development (mostly Python), video games, chess, soccer, and voiding warranties.

I currently own a Nexus 5, a Nexus 10, and a Nook HD. I generally run a slightly self-modified version of CyanogenMod on my Nexus devices.

Unfortunately, you can't do this.

comment Using Apple Lossless with Google Play Music
From a business perspective it seems like it's not really in Google's (or Apple's) best interest to support this kind of interoperability. They both want you using their respective music stores. I wouldn't be entirely surprised if there is no easy way to do this.

comment How is it that Rooting is always possible?
I have to agree with Ryan - you seem to be equating the size of a company with some kind of infallibility. Until the perfect human being is born bugs will always exist, as they inherently stem from programming mistakes (and everyone, no matter how skilled they are at some given task, will make mistakes).

comment How is it that Rooting is always possible?
Not really, no. A quick Google search shows sources having a record of at least 200+ kernel vulns found in Linux (since the data started being recorded). The most recent one I see on this site has activity about 2 weeks old (the "Bypass" one). Android ones may perhaps linger longer since carriers are slow to update, but the fundamental answer to your question still seems to be "code has bugs, some are exploitable". Vulns may exist outside the kernel as well.

Linux isn't exempt from privilege escalation exploits. Code has bugs, and even desktop Linux exploits get discovered periodically. What kind of answer are you looking for here?

comment How do I enable USB tethering on a JellyBean device?
@Chris: The Nexus 7 doesn't support it. It's only available on devices with cellular data chips (3G/4G). What you want is more like this: android.stackexchange.com/questions/3134/…
