Nokia Lumia 800 Gets First Custom ROM!

A while back, we told you about the Lumia 710 getting its first custom ROM. Well today we have even bigger news: the Nokia Lumia 800 (the 710’s more expensive sibling) has received its first custom ROM, courtesy of XDA Forum Member lucifer3006. Known as RainbowMod and based off of Windows Phone 7.10.8773.98 (Tango), the ROM promises such exciting features as:

Full Unlock from UltraShot
Removed OEM applications (Nokia Drive, Maps, etc.)
Search key remapping
QuickLaunch menu for quick switching state of WiFi, 3G, Flight mode, Power save, etc.
Ability to access file system via WiFi/USB
Integrated Live ID, DppImplant no longer needed, but new key can also be banned
Orientation locker
Added many color themes (screenshots)
Easy installation xap from browser or file manager

The developer has made it extremely clear that this ROM is for devices with Qualcomm bootloaders only, and that failure to follow directions could very well result in your phone becoming an expensive paperweight. Also of note is that the developer created this without actually owning the device.

If you’re looking to get in on the action, head over to the original thread and let the good times roll.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Drop Test

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are already proving to be amongst the head turners of 2015. From favoring their inhouse Exynos 7 SoC over the Snapdragon 810 SoC (which ended up causing issues to its main rival); to ditching the removable battery and micro sd card slot in favor of a more "premium" device, the flagship duo have a lot going on for them at this stage.
