April Fools Day is once again upon us and as usual, tech companies everywhere have not failed to keep us entertained. With a trove of fantastic faux product launches and even some real product launches that were taken as April Fools jokes, people have been busy releasing their hilarious ideas. With many of these jokes being nostalgic and some even being functional it's easy to appreciate the spirit behind them. Samsung Galaxy Blade Edge In a reference to the Galaxy...
Multitouch Enabled on the Huawei Ideos C8150/U8150
While this device does not exactly have its own forum on XDA, this does not stop it from having at least some development made on it. XDA member tj_style just told us that he has been working on this device and among other things, he was able to get multitouch working on this device. You have to remember that not all devices are prepared to support this feature, and many manufacturers and carriers have a tendency to disable certain things in order to discourage savvy consumers and drive them into more profitable sales.
The dev has posted a video of the multitouch display capability in action and has stated that he will release a rom with this functionality as soon as he is done cleaning the code a bit. Please read through the first few posts to learn about what the dev is doing as he is far from done working on this device. If you have any feedback or if you would like to help the dev, please let him know.
What I will explain on this thread:
– Change path of bootanimation.zip from /cust partition to /system/media/
– Change oemlogo.mbn from /cust partition to /system/media/
– Make your own oemlogo.mbn (splashscreen)
– Multitouch support for U8150 / C8150
– Update link for Official Firmware from Huawei

The beginning of April is dominated by April Fools. There are jokes and pranks everywhere, which are meant to fool people. This news is no joke though, as Google has pushed the shiny red button to send out over-the-air updates to supported devices. Well, sort of, as only a few of available Nexus devices got updates to Android 5.1. Here's a list of OTAs that can be downloaded and flashed by stock recoveries. You can find guides on how to revert...
Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors. I speak, of course, about April Fools Day. As has become their custom, Google launched lighthearted "pranks" for each of their various services (with other tech sites and vendors following suit), and we have done our best to round up the humorous products and tweaks surfacing thus far....
