Moving back from G+ to chainfire.eu
Posted on 2018-11-08, 9 comments, 29 +1's, 5109 views

Several years ago I used to post most of my articles here (and on XDA, of course). When Google Plus became a thing, I primarily posted there, as I quite liked the platform. I was always a bit distrustful of its longevity, but even though many have been openly negative towards it, it still seemed to be used by a lot of people - especially in tech communities.

500 Firepaper v3.00 - 500px to /r/EarthPorn

As you have probably already heard, 500px is shutting down their API mid-June. 500 Firepaper was built around the 500px API, and this would thus spell the end for the app.

Retirement from SuperSU
Posted on 2017-10-03, 320 comments, 1364 +1's, imported from Google+/Chainfire

A little over two years ago I announced SuperSU's impending transfer to CCMT and my eventual leaving the project. Now, at the 10 year anniversary of my first mobile app release (see https://plus.google.com/+Chainfire/posts/8JmUc2EKSsc for a recap of those 10 years), just after SuperSU both turned 5-and-a-half and hit 100 million users on Google Play, the time has come for me to officially announce that retirement.
