HTC Universal Gets Android ROM With CyanogenMod 7!
If you are impressed with the HTC HD2 in terms of the developments that have been possible here at XDA, here’s another case of great development happening on legacy hardware. For those of you too young to remember HTC Universal-in 2005–was the first 3G device ever released with a VGA 3.5″ pivoting screen. It came originally with Windows Mobile 5.0.
Now thanks to the terrific efforts of XDA member notime2d8, and some other members involved, Android arrives with the CyanogenMod 7 for Universals with 128Mb (shame for those with 64Mb). According to Dev, everything is working except for the WiFi and the modem/phone functions.

Everythings working except for the wifi and the modem/phone functions.
The file “sdboot.zip” contains all of the files that need to be placed on the root of your memory card and the folder “sdcard” has each of the individual files.
Continue to ROM post, please read all before proceeding.

QuickPic, Google Photos, and the other mainstays treat raw images like they don't exist. This rundown seeks to fill the void and give you full control over your precious pictures....
While the majority of the top apps have already incorporated Google's newest design language, there are still very many apps that are in need of some Material Design love. Which apps do you think are most desperately in need of an update?
