Android Launcher Saves Time

With the growing popularity of Android on Windows Mobile, this new launcher can save you some time when launching it. The launcher was created by bedoig, and he managed to get a perfect launcher going that does all the work for you.

I like having my backlight auto-adjust in WM, but for the time being we still have to turn that off before launching Haret in order to have backlight control in Android. So… here is a little app that does just that… disables the automatic backlight adjustment and then runs haret. Just install the cab and look for “Android Launcher” in your Start menu (you still need your own Android package on your storage card – including haret).

Also, I had originally intended to write another little program to run at Windows startup to re-enable auto-adjustment, but it doesn’t seem to be necessary. The setting doesn’t appear to stick after the system reboots. Maybe there isn’t enough time before haret runs for the registry to be committed. Not really sure, but I’d be curious if anyone else’s results vary.
Edit – new version configurable via the registry. Change the string value at HKLM\SOFTWARE\AndroidLauncher — HaretLocation to reflect the location of haret on your storage card.
Edit2 – added app to re-enable the auto-adjustment on Windows startup, since the results seemed to be inconsistent. This will ensure that it is back on when Windows starts. If you’ve downloaded previously, you might want to update to this version.

The thread holds the CAB

When a Friend or Family Member Asks for a Phone Recommendation, What Do You Tell Them?

The majority of us here at XDA would consider ourselves power users and Android enthusiasts. Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
