For the past couple of years, Motorola has become less and less of a big name in mobile phones, but that wasn’t always the case. Before smartphones were widely available, Motorola was one of the biggest names thanks to its popular RAZR lineup. According to a new report, that brand is coming back with a new foldable RAZR smartphone.

It was 2006, you were in high school, and everybody had a Motorola RAZR. At least, that’s how Motorola wants you to remember your life ten years ago, in its latest teaser for the upcoming Moto X (or Moto Z) announcement.
Of course, one year later the iPhone was launched and the entire mobile industry was turned on its head. But for that one brief spell, the RAZR was without doubt the most popular phone around, and it turned heads.

CM13 comes to Wileyfox Swift & Storm and Moto RAZR, Droid RAZR, Droid Bionic, Droid 4
We’ve covered both the Wileyfox Swift and Wileyfox Storm in detail (read & watch our reviews here and here, respectively), and now the two phones—which by default run Cyanogen OS 12.1 based on Android Lollipop—are getting CyanogenMod 13 nightlies (via Android Police). We’ve said that the British-made and well-specced handsets are a great deal for the price if you live in the UK, even though they may not have anywhere near the hype or brand recognition of OnePlus…
You can find CM13 download links for the two phones here:
In addition, it seems a few ancient handsets also just starting receiving their first CyanogenMod 13 nightlies. The Motorola RAZR, Motorola Droid RAZR, Motorola Droid Bionic, and Motorola Droid 4 are all joining ranks among dozens of other handsets. Marshmallow builds for these phones and others have been popping up here and there, but if you’ve been waiting on the tried and true (although maybe not in this case, as these are nightlies after all) CyanogenMod, you’re in luck.

If your Android device is not yet a supported device for Google’s new screen mirroring feature for Chromecast, a new workaround might enable the feature for your device ahead of official support.
Earlier this week Google officially started rolling out support for mirroring Android from a smartphone to a TV via the company’s $35 Chromecast HDMI streaming stick. After tapping a new “Cast Screen” button in the Chromecast app on Android, your entire display will be mirrored to the larger Chromecast connected screen. Unfortunately the feature is currently only available to a limited selection of 14 devices including popular handsets from Samsung, HTC, LG. etc.
Today, XDA-developers point us to a root-enabled app that will trick the Chromecast app into thinking your device is supported: expand full story
