Atrix 1080p Recording OlympusCamera App

If you’re the lucky owner of a Motorola Atrix, you might want to try out some 1080p recording courtesy of XDA forum member zove.

The OlympusCamera.apk has been modified to allow HD recording and has been tested on firmware 1.8.3 de-odexed.

You’ll need to replace the stock OlympusCamera.apk in the system/app folder and reboot to allow the app to reload into the app drawer.

XDA member mramirezusa has also posted steps required to install the replacement app using Root Explorer. You should back up the original file by renaming before installing the modified apk.

For more information and to download the file, head on over to the modification thread and for full step by step instructions, take a look at this post.

Send Links to Any Nearby Device with CaastMe

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...
