Do You Have A Sidekick 4G? Would You Like To Cook Your Own Rom? Then, Read This…
We have several devices on our site that are seemingly abandoned due to the low interest of some devs to look into them. One device that almost falls into this category is the Sidekick 4G from T-Mobile. If you are bored with the device and wish there was something cool to do to it, then you may want to check out the guide posted by XDA member Revolution. The dev is the chef for the Revolution HD ROM for this device and decided, after being asked quite a few times, to teach our members how to fish. The guide is complete and even includes a video in case something is not exactly clear. There will be a few tools that you will need but you don’t need to worry ad they are all free.

This is how i made Revolution HD

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...
