Get a Tablet UI on CyanogenMod9 for the Atrix 4g

For those of us who don’t have tablets, we often find ourselves envious of those who do have tablets. The giant screen, the extra features and the slick user interfaces, to name a few. Sometimes, it’s a little fun to grab up a tablet-like feature just to feel the love.

Well, thanks to XDA Senior Member AndroidON, users who are carrying the Motorola Atrix 4g can experience a little bit of the tablet goodness with a mod that will give Atrix users a tablet UI.

The mod is pretty simple to apply compared to some. It involves overwriting a services.jar file and a couple of build.prop tweaks, then reboot and your home screen should bear a striking resemblance to an Android Tablet. It should help lessen the jealousy, at least. Getting back is no big deal either, as AndroidON explains:

So, If you want to get back,

just change your density to 240 and it will revert to phone UI.

We need reboot between UI change now,

but maybe devs can do some mod after CM9 have all feature

So if you’re looking to add some tablet UI goodness to your Atrix, you can find the proper files and instructions in the original thread. Don’t forget to make a backup, though, just in case something goes awry.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
