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.

Desire HD (aka HTC Ace) Rom Dumped and Ready for Development
Well, it really didn’t take too long. The rom for the awaited Desire HD aka HTC Ace has been dumped and thrown to the wolves (I mean devs), courtesy of XDA member dealer75. The rom shows some rather impressive features such as the whooping 56 fps that can be observed in the screenshot attached. According to the dev, the uncompressed dump is roughly 300 MB. This dump can (and will be) used for development purposes on other devices, like… oh, I don’t know… the HD2! So, if you are using shu8i’s or darkstone’s roms and thought they were good, wait until they can get this puppy up and running!
Please note that there are no roms as of yet using this, so asking if this could be used in your HD2 as it is right now is out of the question. If you happen to use this for your work, please make sure that you thank the dev who made it possible.
FINALLY GOT IT!!!
Uploading to multiupload.com right now, stay tuned!!!

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. You can find guides on how to revert...
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....
