Previously I talked about the Pebble Time Kickstarter, and why I thought it was the most practical smartwatch to buy in 2015, and that I decided to be an early backer on Kickstarter. Well as of this morning an interesting development has come from my - currently - favorite smartwatch company.

Port-A-Droid Makes Running and Testing Android Builds a Breeze
The now aging HTC HD2 is still considered by many to be one of the best devices to come out from HTC. Its incomparable versatility (thanks to the efforts of countless people) allows a user to switch between most widely used OS systems including its native Windows Mobile, Android, Windows Phone 7, Ubuntu, MeeGo, and more. On top of that, in order to run Android you have several different methods of accomplishing this task, and one of them is by running from NAND, which basically completely wipes out Windows Mobile from your system. XDA member boonbing has put together a series of scripts based on the work of many people including XDA member DarkStone1337 and his work on RAM roms. In essence, Port-A-Droid will allow users to use, test, and replace Gingerbread roms that should be install on NAND, but that will load from the SD card and run via RAM. In essence, you will get the full NAND experience by still keeping your Windows Mobile OS completely intact. This is a very versatile tool that will provide any user with the means to run everything they want without the hassle that normally goes attached to it.
Please leave some feedback for the dev if you liked this tool.
What is Portadroid SuperRAM GB?
- Portadroid (a.k.a Port-a-Droid) SuperRAM GB is NOT A ANDROID ROM!
- It is a tool whioch I build mainly with scripts that enables SUPPORTED Gingerbread HD2 NAND or HTC Desire ROMs to be booted via SD card into RAM on the top of your stock WM6.5 ROM.

The LG G Pro Lite D680 is a budget phone that was released in 2013 alongside the LG Optimus G Pro, LG's 2013 flagship device. Unfortunately, it hasn't received much development attention so far… but XDA Recognized Developer laufersteppenwolf has now released an unsecured boot.img along with a CWM recovery. This is despite the bootloader being locked (which means there's no need for you to void your warranty!), and marks the first step towards custom ROM and kernel development for...
