HTC One V ROM Ported to Desire HD and Desire S

The HTC One V’s similarities to its older brother, the Desire S, make  it ideal for developers to port ROMs between the devices. XDA Forum Member proxuser has come up with an Android 4.0.3 ROM sporting HTC Sense 4.0 for the Desire S and also the Desire HD.

One would assume that this ROM could be much heavier and less stable than stock because it is built for a more powerful device, but the developer assures us that this is simply not the case. In fact, he conjectures that this is the fastest and most stable ROM for the two devices. However, the ROM isn’t quite flawless. Fortunately, the list of things that work is much longer than the things that don’t. Currently, the main issues are the camera, WiFi hotspot, and SD card mounting functions.

Overall, the ROM seems to be good enough for day-to-day use for most people. Visit the Desire HD and Desire S threads for all information and download or check out a hands-on video to see how it looks.

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...

New Cyanogen Partnerships Bring Privacy Concerns

New Privacy concerns have emerged regarding Cyanogen’s latest announcements, primarily the inclusion of email app Boxer and that of a multitude of Microsoft apps, including Bing services, Skype, OneDrive, OneNote, Outlook, and Microsoft Office. The concerns arise when you look at both announcements together. At face value they may appear to be the beginning of Cyanogen’s plan to “take Android away from Google,” however there is certainly something more nefarious occurring. Along side the partnership with Microsoft, Cyanogen also recently announced...
