Android 4.2 Makes its Way to the HTC HD2
The HTC HD2 can be compared favorably to Bob Hope. It’s probably going to be around and reasonably successful for quite some time. Not too long ago, we brought you news that the HD2 continued being relevant when it received a WP8 port. Now, in an act that can only be described as necromancy, the HD2 lives again with an Android 4.2 ROM.

From accurate graphing applications to TI emulators (don't judge me, the real thing costs crazy amounts here!), passing through giants like Wolfram and MATLAB Mobile, there were a lot of tools for one to excel with. In fact, I'd say that without Android I wouldn't have chosen...
XDA Recognized Contributor Albe95 has shared with us what looks to be Galaxy S6 applications. The ones he's provided are the GearManager, the Optical Reader, GeoNews and Kids Mode. The applications are available for download through the links in the opening post, but keep in mind it is likely that they might not be compatible with your device. There's also new information about more applications and system interface features revealed in the same thread: The alleged S6 statusbar and panel are ported to the...
