Just like every other device that hits the Verizon networks, the Galaxy Note 4 also comes with a locked down bootloader, which makes gaining root access and flashing custom ROMs on it a challenging task.

Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP), one of the most popular custom recoveries, is now available on Motorola’s new Moto X, giving users the ability to install custom ROMs and tweaks. Not every Moto X handset will be able to take advantage of it, though.

Sony’s new Xperia Z3 Compact, the pocket-sized flagship that was announced at IFA 2014 in Berlin last month, is finally on sale in the U.S. Customers can buy the device directly from Sony’s online store — so long as they’re willing to buy the device outright for $529.99.

T-Mobile has today become the second U.S. carrier to confirm that it will be offering the Sony Xperia Z3 this month. Unlike Verizon, however — which has its own customized version of the device — T-Mobile will offer the original that was first unveiled at IFA 2014 in Berlin last month.
