Never Loose Track of Your Friends with GPS to SMS App

Well, I don’t know about others, but in this Country we need something that can instantly share the location with another person and since not everyone uses the internet connectivity all the times, there is a need for such an application that can send the location to another person, but with the help of an SMS. There are certain places and conditions that leave us with nothing but the SMS and if we have something that can let us share our Location with other person, or opposite, with the help of a single SMS, then there is nothing better.

GPS to SMS is an app that does the job and it does it with much smoothness. Instead of you taking a snapshot and then uploading it to any Messenger and then typing the message, with this app you can just tap the send button and use any third-party messaging app like WhatsApp, Messenger, Viber or any other messaging service to send the location. The best part is that you can save the location to SD Card for further use, and this app even works offline. It doesn’t run in Background. It supports Multi-Language. So many of us will understand what is written. The theme is set to Material Design, so it will look good no matter which Android version you are using.

How To Unlock Bootloader of Nexus 9 and Root it

Nexus 9 is the latest Flagship tablet from Google, one of the most awaited and most demanded tablet of this year was finally available for both developers and Users. As anticipated, it won’t take long for anyone to root the device, unlocking bootloader is a piece of cake, but no one actually thought that it will be Chainfire himself that will root the device at the first place. For all those who are wondering who is Chainfire, he is the genius behind the Rooting method, both the Super SU and CF-Auto Root is the invention of this person. Well Nexus 9 was available only a few days ago, and today on the XDA the rooting method is available for Nexus 9 along with the bootloader unlocking script, which is by far the same for all the Nexus devices.

You are going to unlock the bootloader sooner or later, so don’t make my type of Mistake and unlock is right now while your device is still empty and you don’t have much data in it. I unlocked the Bootloader of Nexus 5 when it was full of data and it was such a sad moment for me, despite that I had a back-up of all my data. Rooting is your choice, whether you want to do it or not, but it is not that difficult, you should give it a try. We are not going to use CF-Auto Root for rooting, because for now, the 64-bit firmware is not supported, we are going to use the Old Super SU method, which might brick your device, so if you are not sure or not ready to do this, back off and do something else, you just can’t because there is nothing to do instead checking out this device. Without further ado, let’s continue towards the method.

Early Preparations:
