Froyo Spotted Running on the Blue Angel!!!
Long, long time ago, in a galaxy far away, there was once a device spotted in the wild, running Google’s attempt to enter into the mobile platform world. This device, praised as one of HTC’s best devices ever released at the time, was running an emulated version of a new operating system called Android. This device was the HTC Blue Angel. Long left for dead, but not forgotten by many (including yours truly), some development has still prospered even though people have moved on to bigger and better things (no, we don’t mean tablets). After several years in hiatus, this project was picked up again by one of the only remaining devs for the Blue Angel, XDA member d-two. While doing a parallel development for a multi-language WM6.5.5 rom, which is almost complete in its fifth incarnation (RC5), the dev has been working tirelessly into getting one of Android’s latest versions to work on this device. The dev has not posted any download links just yet, but there is a video showing that this indeed is the real thing, booting from HaReT into AOSP’s lockscreen. The dev is also working on what seems to be a NAND boot, for which he posted a video.
If you know anything about kernel porting and development for WM devices, please be sure to stop by the thread and leave some feedback or suggestions to help the dev make this into a fully functional port.

The show began with a quiet voice whispering to...
Each year, smartphone makers attempt to one-up each other in features and specs, but time and again these improvements feel incremental rather than revolutionary. Samsung hopes to break this trend with a new hardware and software design philosophy, and press details of the new-and-improved cameras shared by the S6 and S6 Edge show that they are off to a great start. Once you get past the curved displays and wraparound Gorilla Glass 4, the most striking feature on these slabs is the...
