One Stop Shop for HTC Thunderbolt Modification
Every now and then, it’s necessary for a developer to consolidate all of his or her mods into a single thread. It makes it easier for users to find all their stuff and help showcase their work in a more effective and efficient manner. It also gives that dev a place to put future work without having to make another thread and clog the forums up. XDA Senior Member orkillakilla has opened a thread to showcase a number of mods and theme elements for users of the HTC Thunderbolt using Gingerbread with HTC Sense 2.1.
The mods are easy to install, as they’re all flashable via custom recovery, so they’re friendly for even the novice user. The available modifications range from changing the overscroll glow color and giving you true 6-bar signal icons to removing the recent apps from the notifications pull down. There’s even a nifty mod that will wake the phone upon pressing the volume keys instead of the power button.
For the full list of mods, their download links, all the thank yous and user discussion, head on over to the mod collection thread and grab up what you need.

Google Drive for Work, Google Apps for Work (paid edition), Education and Government customers will not be affected by these changes and can continue using...
One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
