April Fools Day is once again upon us and as usual, tech companies everywhere have not failed to keep us entertained. With a trove of fantastic faux product launches and even some real product launches that were taken as April Fools jokes, people have been busy releasing their hilarious ideas.

CyanogenMod-6 (Nightly) Now Ported for the Touch Pro
XDANDROID project has grown a lot over the past few months. The devs have been doing a fantastic job in trying to iron out all the bugs in the ports to have better, more stable Android OS on devices not meant for it. On the other side of the coin, you have the infamous CyanogenMod Android roms, which are rated among the best for multiple devices. The time has now come to marry these two fantastic developments. XDA member vatoloco has just released a port of a CM-6 Froyo – Nightly build for the Touch Pro (aka Raphael). While it is still on experimental state, there have been good reports about it so far. However, if you are adventurous enough to try it, bear in mind that it will have some bugs. Other builds have also been ported in this project, such as Myn’s Warm Donut for the Vogue/Polaris/Kaiser, which seem to be more stable as well.
The developer is currently looking for testers, so hop into this project and help out the devs in completing this great port.
So here we go now for CM6-Ports:
The following CM6-Ports are available now:

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.

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....
