Jelly Bean Lands on the Motorola Droid

The Motorola Droid, an iconic device, with it’s sliding QWERTY keyboard and D-pad. With it’s now measly 550MHz CPU and 256 MB of RAM, it’s one of those everlasting old school devices that never seems to disappear completely. Thanks to XDA Senior Member kfazz, the Droid once again get’s a refresh. This time with a custom Jelly Bean ROM.

Based on CyanogenMod 10, Jellybean for Droid is a functional build of Android Jelly Bean. Of course, as with all these older devices running the latest flavour of Android, there are a few minor issues, but the ROM is functionanl and usable, and gives Droid owners a taste of Jelly Bean.

If you want to invigorate your Droid with some of that sugary Jelly Bean sweetness, head on over to the ROM thread.

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
