An Overview of the LeeDroid Tweaks Mod Pack
Every now and again, there are is a tweak, a mod or a tool that most users can’t imagine not having. Things like Theme Chooser on CyanogenMod or the Rosie re-map function for most HTC devices, some modifications are so useful that they become common place in ROM feature lists. This is the case with LeeDroid tweaks, a mod pack by XDA Recognized Developer j4n87 that has become so popular that most ROM devs have added the tweaks to their ROMs, and those who haven’t have been urged by their users to do so.
The modification, available for the HTC Sensation and both the GSM and CDMA flavors of the HTC EVO 3D, gives users an application that can apply a very large number of mods from the MIUI battery bar to removing the paginated scrolling from the app drawer. Here’s a list of features available for just the status bar:
hide and reorder quicksetting
hide specific notifications icons: alarm/gps/bluetooth/wifi/data/headset/volume
choose clock color
toggle for hide date on notification pulldown or show clock
center date/clock on notification pulldown
Battery Tweaks with MIUI Battery bar – + transparency!
OWN SIGNAL TWEAKS – choose up to SEVEN different colors for wifi/data/signal bars – DYNAMIC colors, dependent on signal strength – two icons sets to choose!
custom statusbar caption
quick quicksettings toggle: if not notification to clear, show immediatly quicksettings
toggle tabs on/off
That’s just the status bar mods. There’s some for the Rosie, the lock screen and others. The full list of modifications and tweaks is truly long and impressive and it’s very highly recommended that users of the Sensation and EVO 3D at least check it out.
You can find LeeDroid Tweaks in either the EVO 3D GSM or CDMA threads, and for those with ICS on their HTC Sensation, the Sensation thread. As usual, make a backup before flashing, and get ready to enjoy one of the biggest single tweak packs out there.

The beginning of April is dominated by April Fools. There are jokes and pranks everywhere, which are meant to fool people. This news is no joke though, as Google has pushed the shiny red button to send out over-the-air updates to supported devices. Well, sort of, as only a few of available Nexus devices got updates to Android 5.1. Here's a list of OTAs that can be downloaded and flashed by stock recoveries. You can find guides on how to revert...
Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors. I speak, of course, about April Fools Day. As has become their custom, Google launched lighthearted "pranks" for each of their various services (with other tech sites and vendors following suit), and we have done our best to round up the humorous products and tweaks surfacing thus far....
