Previously I talked about the Pebble Time Kickstarter, and why I thought it was the most practical smartwatch to buy in 2015, and that I decided to be an early backer on Kickstarter. Well as of this morning an interesting development has come from my - currently - favorite smartwatch company. They will release the Pebble Time Steel variant alongside the regular Pebble, instead of say a whole release cycle down the road. The accompanying announcement along with the Steel,...
Horizontal CM7 Boot Animation
We have seen very cool and original boot animations as of recently, coming from the depths of our forums. This time, XDA member adam2010 brings us something refreshing for CM7 addicts… I mean users. Aside from a very smooth and blue-ish animation, which is classic for CM7, the boot animation actually is in landscape, so it actually makes better use of the screen’s real estate than their portrait counterparts. This is yet another way to show your love for your current rom. For those of you that are on the other immensely popular AOSP rom known as MIUI, adam2010 states that he is currently working on a horizontal one for that ROM as well.
Please share your thoughts about it and some feedback for the dev if you have any issues with it.
It’s time to show off your bootanimation to your friends and make them jealous of your android phone. May be it’s just me; I haven’t seen any horizontal bootanimation so far. Why should we have a small animation and ignore the rest of the screen?!
No matter what size screen you have, the NeoGlass bootanimation can fit it perfectly and it doesn’t lose quality. I have highly optimized the images and made the animation as smooth as possible. I hope you guys experience the same thing.
You can find more information in the boot screen thread.

The LG G Pro Lite D680 is a budget phone that was released in 2013 alongside the LG Optimus G Pro, LG's 2013 flagship device. Unfortunately, it hasn't received much development attention so far… but XDA Recognized Developer laufersteppenwolf has now released an unsecured boot.img along with a CWM recovery. This is despite the bootloader being locked (which means there's no need for you to void your warranty!), and marks the first step towards custom ROM and kernel development for...
