Honeycomb SDK Ported to the HTC EVO!!!

Well, they said it couldn’t be done due to hardware requirements. However, devs in the hacking scene have done it yet once again. XDA member spyderdreams is working together with a few other devs in a little project that is already seeing fruits on its labor. This build of Honeycomb, which is taken straight out of the SDK, much like the one for the Nook Color, is a rather incomplete build as many things don’t work. However, it was believed that because Android 3.0 was meant only for Tablets, that it would not even be able to boot on a smaller device. Slowly but surely, the OS boots on the EVO without any major issues (at booting). Many members are reporting that even though a lot of functionality is missing, the OS is rather stable with a few scattered random reboots here and there.

Remember, this is in very, very, very alpha stage, so unless you know what you are doing, please don’t flash it. If you do flash it and can help in development, please be sure to leave your feedback for the devs.

You flash it at your own risk. Backup everything.
Many things are broken like
SD card
Music player
Radios
Audio
camera
wifi (working on fix)
4g
App drawer(works but needs resizing)

You can find more information in the port thread.

DexPatcher: Patch Android APKs Using Java

You've probably seen or installed modified applications, be it a patched dialer for your resolution or a custom WhatsApp version with added features. How do developers do that, though? A lot of the time, the applications' source code isn't even available, so how does it all work? We'll see that first, then take a look at a new tool that aims to make the process much easier, and finally compare it to the popular Xposed framework to see how they...

M9: Is Throttling a Non-issue? Can’t We Trust Benchmarks?

When the first reports of the M9 overheating came to light, many forum users began a collective joke-round calling the phone a popcorn machine, a grill, and other unoriginal remarks that we’ve seen with every device that presents sign of overheating, from gaming consoles to graphics cards. In this sense, the internet is not very inventive, and the cycle of rehashed jokes re-surfaces on different products every year or so. This time it was the M9’s turn and it was...
