Previously I talked about the Pebble Time Kickstarter, and why I thought it was the most practical smartwatch to buy in 2015, and that I decided to be an early backer on Kickstarter. Well as of this morning an interesting development has come from my - currently - favorite smartwatch company. They will release the Pebble Time Steel variant alongside the regular Pebble, instead of say a whole release cycle down the road. The accompanying announcement along with the Steel,...
Extreme Road Trip 2 Ported to ARMv6 Devices
One of the most annoying things about the smartphone industry is when there is an awesome game for one platform that isn’t available for your own platform of choice. Perhaps even worse though, if you own Android, is when a game is made only for devices with the ARMv7 instruction set, and you still have an older and less powerful ARMv6 device. For Extreme Road Trip 2 fans, at least, it is a problem no more.
XDA Recognized Contributor and Themer PulseDroid has modified the Extreme Road Trip 2 APK to work on ARMv6 devices. This was done after PulseDroid saw that the game was available for iOS and Android, but not the Samsung Galaxy Ace in particular. Here is the compatibility list and features:
Note:-This app should now support all HVGA/Armv6 Devices!
Yes, the game does lag, but if you are using CM7, with your clock speed at 800MHz you should be fine! Also, the graphics isn’t quite perfect, I am working on that.
So if you have an older ARMv6 device and you don’t mind a little lag, this could be a pretty fun game to check out. As mentioned, since it was designed for much more powerful devices, it’s recommended you’re running the best ROM possible for your device. Furthermore, a little overclocking couldn’t hurt performance either. But most importantly, keep your performance expectations a bit in check.

The LG G Pro Lite D680 is a budget phone that was released in 2013 alongside the LG Optimus G Pro, LG's 2013 flagship device. Unfortunately, it hasn't received much development attention so far… but XDA Recognized Developer laufersteppenwolf has now released an unsecured boot.img along with a CWM recovery. This is despite the bootloader being locked (which means there's no need for you to void your warranty!), and marks the first step towards custom ROM and kernel development for...
Samsung's latest and greatest, the Galaxy S6 Edge, is drastically different from any Samsung flagship that has come before it. The Korean giant took a very different approach when designing this little beast, creating quite the debate among android enthusiasts about whether this is really the next big thing or not.
