Regional Wi-Fi Issues in ICS Gone with WiFi Fix

It turns out that, in some countries, if you have a SIM card in your Android 4.0 device, Wifi doesn’t work like it should. Apparently, there’s an issue specifically with the Wifi country code that causes the problem. Fortunately, XDA Member fardjad has isolated the issue and offers a fix with his free app, Wifi Fix for ICS.

If you have a rooted phone, all you need to do is install the apk and grant the app SU permissions. The app will, from this point, run at startup and fix any issues you might have previously had connecting to a Wifi network when there was a SIM card installed in your ICS device. Several users have already reported an immediate difference in Wifi performance.

Fardjad has stated that he will release updates for the app when they are needed, and asks that bug reports, feature requests, and other commentary happen in his thread.

Taking a look at the changes made to the manifest repository (which is used to specify the repositories to be downloaded when building Android), it appears there are some new repositories making an appearance. Of note here are new prebuilt repositories for Go, and Ninja. Go is a programming language, created by Google, which compiles to produce...

Send Links to Any Nearby Device with CaastMe

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...
