It's not often I look at a product or service and say "I really really hope this isn't real, and it's an elaborate fake". Alas, this day has come. It's time for a look at something which cropped up on my radar today, namely a service called FileThis. I won't do them the search-engine-ranking honor of providing a direct link to their site, but a quick search will find them, and their app on the Play Store and iTunes store....
Boot Up To 4 Different Roms With DualRomX2
Flashing roms is always both fun and tedious at the same time, a necessary evil if you will. Choosing between roms, unless you have one absolute favorite, is a constant battle with one self. How would you like to be able to boot up to 4 different roms at any given time without flashing them? If you have a Droid Incredible, then you are in luck because XDA member Conap has released a new version of DRX. In case you are not familiar with it, basically this will load the roms to the emmc on boot, which in turn let’s you load the roms quickly and without flashing. This has been tested with several different types of roms, including Sense, AOSP, CM, MIUI, as well as others.
Please leave some feedback for the dev.
DRX2 is an upgrade from DualRom. You can fit up to 4 roms on emmc(and one on the phone if you want) It uses the phone as an installer. I decided to go towards DHowetts idea of mounting img files on the emmc. Emmc will stay as fat32 the way it comes on the phone. This system is fairly simple and so far has worked with all rom’s tested.

More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative. However, there are still a few OEMs (we're looking at you, Samsung) that have preferred to keep things a bit more traditional. Tell us which way you prefer and why.
While there are frequent unexplained changes and pushes to Google's AOSP repositories, an interesting-looking new branch has been pushed out recently, called "master-soong". Taking a look at the changes made to the manifest repository (which is used to specify the repositories to be downloaded when building Android), it appears there are some new repositories making an appearance. Of note here are new prebuilt repositories for Go, and Ninja. Go is a programming language, created by Google, which compiles to produce...
