Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us. Furthermore, since our smartphones are always with us, the majority of us end up taking tons of photos throughout the lifespan of our devices. But what happens to all the old photos you take? Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.
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.

Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
New Privacy concerns have emerged regarding Cyanogen’s latest announcements, primarily the inclusion of email app Boxer and that of a multitude of Microsoft apps, including Bing services, Skype, OneDrive, OneNote, Outlook, and Microsoft Office.

At face value they may appear to be the beginning of Cyanogen’s plan to “take Android away from Google,” however there is certainly something more nefarious occurring. Along side the partnership with Microsoft, Cyanogen also recently announced...
