[MOD] TrackballWake and TrackballSkip for Nexus One

The Nexus One’s trackball is becoming the most valuable and customizable feature of the device, and our members are getting the fullest out of it. This new modification was created by metalhead8816 in our Nexus One forum, and it is not the first trackball tweak to spring out of there.

This one does more than the others. This one is made for those people that listen to music on there devices. It allows them to either use one of the mods to use the trackball to wake up the device or to change your music.

I think this is just about the coolest mod of them all, and the feature list shows you why.

1st Mod: (TrackballWake)
– Allows the user to wake the screen using the trackball (No extra apps its built-in to OS)
– Option is under the System Settings -> Sound & Display -> Trackball Settings -> Trackball wakes screen
– Option is off by default

2nd Mod: (TrackballSkip)
– Allows the user to skip to the next song if music is playing and the screen is off.
– This is done by double-tapping the trackball while the screen is off.
– A double-tap is two consecutive presses within about half a second.
– Option is under Music App -> Settings -> Use trackball to skip
– Option is off by default

Two different versions now:
1) trackball-SuccessW-WSv01.zip – This includes the Successive Notifications v0.4
2) trackball-NoSuccessW-WSv01.zip – This does not include Successive Notification v0.4

You can mod your device with the file from the application thread

Android M Code Name: Macadamia Nut Cookie

While the official name for the latest iteration of Android has yet to be revealed, the code name used internally by Google has been seen to be Macadamia Nut Cookie (MNC). This will almost certainly not be the final name for the release with rumors so far leaning towards milkshake, much like Key Lime Pie became Kit Kat and Lemon Meringue Pie became Lollipop. The acronym MNC has now also started to appear in several locations in AOSP, just look out...

Sunday Debate: Are Smaller Bezels Better or Worth It?

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience.   With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
