‘Mind-Bending’ Portal 2 Boot Animation

Now, don’t think I’m being generalistic here, but chances are the majority of you are gamers, and quite avid one’s at that. I love a good ol’ game myself, especially on Steam. All of Valve’s source games have been fantastic, from the release of the heroic Half-Life with Gordan Freeman to the mind-bending adventure, Portal. If you’re a fan of the original Portal, you may enjoy this boot animation from the highly anticipated sequel, Portal 2, by XDA member JamesC_.

The animation itself features the lighting up and glowing of the Portal 2 setting logo, Aperture Laboratories. It will work happily on any 480×800 devices, but you will require a rooted device.

To save yourself the trouble of navigating the animation through your file system and placing it in the correct directory, you could even use the Bootanimation Utility that I wrote of the other day, which will allow you to back up your original/current animation easily.

If you’d like to download this awesome animation, support its creator, or both, head on over to the original thread.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
