EternityProject Brings Moto RAZR GSM ICS Update and Different Method to Flash Firmware

EternityProject head developer, and also XDA Recognized Developer, kholk and his crew have brought a few really great things to the Motorola Droid RAZR in a relatively short period of time.

For starters, they’ve posted the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the GSM version of the RAZR, available immediately, in their thread about it here. Along with the download links is instructions on installation and screen shots. As stated, this is for the GSM version of the phone only, so those toting the CDMA model will have to wait just a little bit longer for theirs. Also, if you plan on checking it out, make sure you fulfill all the requirements before flashing.

Additionally, the team has brought an alternative to flashing official Motorola firmware that does not include the usual RSD. The process is pretty simple:

1. Copy the FastBoot package into the ROM you’ve extracted
2. Boot in AP FastBoot Mode
3. Connect your RAZR to the PC
4. Execute “FlashME.bat” (Windows) or “FlashNIX.sh” (Linux)
5. Enjoy!

You can find the download links for FlashME.bat and FlashNIX.sh in the original thread. Kholk and EternityProject say that this method will work with all bootloaders although it is aimed toward those who have the 0A.6C bootloader. So users can just download and go if they want to.

New AOSP Branch Details Potential Build System Upgrades?

While there are frequent unexplained changes and pushes to Google's AOSP repositories, an interesting-looking new branch has been pushed out recently, called "master-soong". Taking a look at the changes made to the manifest repository (which is used to specify the repositories to be downloaded when building Android), it appears there are some new repositories making an appearance. Of note here are new prebuilt repositories for Go, and Ninja. Go is a programming language, created by Google, which compiles to produce...

Send Links to Any Nearby Device with CaastMe

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...
