Samsung Wave (Bada) Gets a Taste of Froyo
Thanks to XDA member AndroBada, we see that the BadaOS section was not added in vain. As it turns out, the Android appeal seems to be gaining momentum all across the mobile platforms. This time, we see that a project has been started to port Android to the Samsung Wave, which is a device running strictly Bada. Apparently, there has been quite a bit of progress and there is now a video posted in the OP of the thread, showing the Wave running Froyo. It is slow and laggy, but the fact that it is working more than makes up for the few functionality glitches. It is just like with every port, once the OS boots, it is then time to start focusing on the minor stuff (like functionality of sensors, radio and such)
The project seems to be hosted on a Polish site, but the devs are also members of XDA. So, if you have any experience and think you can help the project move forward, please leave some feedback.

Close to the heart of XDA is the Xposed Framework by Rovo89. Most of us will have used it but you may feel that the module repository is missing something. We have the solution with several guides aimed at getting you started to build your own modules, something that may be daunting but can open an entire new field of development with a little time and effort. Where better to start than at the beginning? Rovo89 has created a straight forward tutorial for getting started with development for Xposed....
We recently did an in-depth review of the Asus Zenfone 2 but one of the things people may not be aware of is that ASUS has actually created a line of accessories to compliment the ZenFone, or any other Android device. The Lolliflash is a Lollipop-shaped external flash and the ZenPower is a thin 10,000mAh external battery. In today's video, Jordan shows off the Lolliflash and the ZenPower Accessories. Additionally, ASUS and XDA have teamed up to give away 5...
