CyanogenMod 7 Hacked Onto Kindle Fire

Many announcements have been occurring with the new work of Cyanogen team, even some versions of CM9 starting to pop out for the Nexus S and Galaxy S. But now we want to let you know about the latest CyanogenMod ROM 7 for the Kindle Fire; XDA member JackpotClavin posted a couple of images showing the Gingerbread-based ROM booted up on his 7-inch Kindle tablet, he is not giving the code for download yet because there are still a lot of bugs to work out.

With source code and root firmly in hand it was only a matter of time before someone got a custom ROM up and running on the Kindle Fire. Judging from the pictures it seems that WiFi is working but if you are not a power user we recommend waiting for something a little more polished before risking your shiny new Kindle.

[ROM] CM7 for the Kindle Fire

Howdy everybody! I just got CM7 to boot for the first time on the Kindle Fire. As of right now, I believe the touch screen is off 90 degrees. I know there’s a fix in the source code, I just forgot where it is but I’ll look. It might actually be an edit to the build.prop.

Since we can’t navigate to items in Clockwork, we have to bring the items to us. Basically what I did was I shifted the entries of Clockwork so the “Install update.zip from sdcard” was listed first, not the Reboot system now option. That way, we can just press OK (The power button) and it’ll install the CM zip. I also changed it so you don’t have to scroll all the way down to the “Yes” option to confirm install as I pushed that to the top also so we can just press OK. In the update.zip I included the wiping of system, data, and cache because we can’t navigate to mounts and storage to wipe those things in Clockwork, so we have to do it automagically.

T-Mobile Galaxy S6 Battery Woes

I've been using a T-Mobile Galaxy S6 since the device launched with T-mobile's service. However, over this past holiday weekend I knew I would be in an area without reliable T-Mobile service. So, I opened up T-Mobile's default "Device Unlock" app , pressed unlock, and placed my AT&T SIM card in the device. Everything seemed to be working fine: strong signal, great LTE, good voice calls - until day 3. On Sunday, my Galaxy S6 felt very hot to the touch and...

Earthquake Early Warning in Your Pocket

Probably all of us reading this have a smartphone in our pocket. For many of us, the smartphone has become our primary method of reading and writing e-mails, messaging, and browsing the web. Though proclamations that "smartphones have replaced the personal computer" typically fall on deaf ears, the statements aren't without merit. Indeed, smartphones have "replaced"—or more accurately, "displaced"—PC's in several areas that they have traditionally been dominant. But how many of you look into your pocket, or on your desk, and...
