Froyo Ported to HTC Vogue
Although, it is only in very early stages of development, XDA member dzo is in the process of porting the latest Android OS to the Vogue. Based on the AOSP released by Google, he has managed to get a booting version for the Vogue. The build is still not complete and many features needed for everyday use are probably not functional. However, this is a huge step in the life of a device which simply refuses to die.
I’ve been having a look at Froyo and have built a very basic install image.
All I did was compile the latest aosp master branch and add the ril. Audio compiles (after a few changes) but doesn’t work yet. HW3D works and the network probably works too. Calls and sms should probably work but it’s not really ready for use yet. This is a very minimal image without any google apps just to show that it works.
You will need the 320×240 eclair kernel from today to test this because it does some new things with the 2D graphics driver.
You can find more information in the port thread.

When the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were launched, they became the prime focus for all discussions as Samsung took a break on their traditional design philosophy and opted for something that their flagship lineup hadn't seen before. But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...
The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....
