New FRG33 ROM Leak for N1 Rooted

News of a leaked ROM for the Google Nexus One was posted tonight on XDA by member Football.

With the code name FRG33 there has been speculation that the ‘G’ might signify an early version of Gingerbread, but XDA members who have flashed the new ROM have subsequently confirmed that this is an updated FroYo ROM.

It has also been confirmed that the Radio is 5.08 – the same Radio that was in the previously leaked Korean ROM.  It appears that FRG33 provides some bug fixes, new base FroYo code and some members have reported that the ROM runs faster – noticeable with WiFi.

Other members have stated that the one-click-root method/app does not appear to work with this ROM.  No fear though, as XDA Senior Member (and Modaco’s) paulobrien has already downloaded and rooted the ROM!

The dev has posted a link to Modaco in the discussion thread here where you can find a rooted version of FRG33 with the radio update, an unrooted (stock) version with the radio update and an unrooted version (stock) without the radio update.

To find out more and flash the ROM yourself, head on over to the discussion thread.

Samsung Galaxy S6 To Receive Major Camera Update

When the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were launched, they became the prime focus for all discussions as Samsung took a break on their traditional design philosophy and opted for something that their flagship lineup hadn't seen before. But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
