Prefer Black Above White? Get a Black Keyboard for your Droid X

One special feature of the Droid X’s software keyboard is the multi touch function. This really helps a lot when it comes to fast typing. However, you might be bored with the standard white ”old-fashioned”  keyboard. Personally, I like white very much – as most of you probably know –  but you might just prefer a black keyboard. XDA member yourfriendwayned created a skin for the keyboard of your Droid X to fit other dark themes. One nice addition is the red Droid eye functioning as the voice level meter.

Alright, so I was bored and feeling productive… as you see that is a good thing! I have redone the original Droid X multi touch keyboard to a better black version with a special Droid Eye style voice level meter (that works so well!) This version only has been tested on the Droid X 2.2 Deodexed Rom so feel free to test it for your own device – I will go ahead and tell you how to load this on your device below….

So, make sure you have a Deodexed ROM with Froyo running on your Droid X before trying this out. The thread contains a step-to-step guide to install the skin, so check it out!

Glimpse Notifications: Easier Lockscreen Notifications

Lollipop brought a revamp to the lockscreen, taking away custom widgets but showing your notifications instead. If you're a fan of that, you might want an easier way to check your notifications as they come in, without losing your current lockscreen. Glimpse Notifications by XDA Senior Member xrad offers just that. You'd normally have to turn your screen on manually to see your notifications. Instead, Glimpse Notifications will do it for you when a notification comes in. That doesn't mean...
