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.

Droid X Boot Animation Ported, Now with Sound
Recently, a lot of useful things have been ported from the Motorola Droid X. Although, the Droid X boot animation has already been available for a few days, it now also contains the sound file which plays the “DROID” sound when booting. The feedback seems to be very good, and the package should work fine. Thanks to XDA developer drmbdrummer for this animation!

Hey guys. I know this is about and around, but we got the sound working on boot (the “DROID” noise). So here’s how you do it:
- 1. download both files below
- UNZIP the “android_audio.zip” file, put the audio file in your sdk/tools folder
- leave the “bootanimation.zip” file zipped, put in your sdk/tools folder
- go into adb and push both files as follows:
adb push bootanimation.zip /data/local
adb push android_audio.mp3 /data/local
This should work; if anyone has problems let me know.
For download and troubleshooting, continue on to the intro thread.

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....
