Halo Reach Bootscreen for Android Devices

Here is the perfect compromise for people who are hardcore Halo fans and Android fans. Animated bootscreens can be plain, dull, or good looking, but XDA member Crackanug‘s creation is on a league of its own. The dev has put a lot of time and effort in creating this wonderful clip of Halo Reach. You can see how the character is on a mission to take down the “Apple” center with an Android bomb, which proves to be a bit more complex than what he probably bargained for. Keep in mind that this is a long duration bootscreen, but it is well worth the extra time.

The file has been put together as a flashable package, but you can always download the original files and push it via adb if you feel a little “old school”. Please leave some feedback for the dev.

After almost 4 weeks of putting together storyboards, computer crashes, time constraints with the animation, testing, starting over, finally settling on a storyboard, more testing, editing, a broken car that won’t start, being stranded at home for 2 days due to the weather, I am PROUD to give you Halo Reach Android Bootscreen. I hope you all enjoy, I am currently rocking it on my rooted EVO. Be aware the animation is a little longer than what most are used to for a bootscreen.

You can find more information in the bootscreen thread.

Open War for Open Android: Antitrust for Cyanogen?

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...

What Do You Do with All of Your Old Photos?

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
