Instant GPS Fix – US & International

smart-phone-gps-300x256

How many of you are having problems with the default GPS application on your device? I bet there are several of us having some issues. XDA member AngelDeath took upon the task to work on current GPS issues and got a script that will improve your actual location. It´s available for 62 countries around the globe and promises to make satellite locks much faster. The developer mentions that the results you get with this script may depend on your ROM, which can make a big difference, as well as your location, and weather. This is working for several devices like Inspire 4G and not only the HD2.

Please let us know whether is working or not for you. This will be helpful to fix bugs.

Q&A img

Welcome to week 44 of our weekly Questions and Answers article. We select five questions that might not be of help to you, but it might still be interesting to read or to pass on to someone who might be looking for that answer.

Q: Does Screen Filter app really work to lower battery usage? Or is it just a placebo effect? Can I set my screen to 100% and use the filter to save batt?

A: Depends on the screen, but you can still benefit from Screen Filter because it will make your screen not as bright to your eyes, which is good if you need to use it at night and don’t want to be blinded/wake up your spouse/whatever.

duskkb

Are you a Windows Mobile user who has grown tired of the lackluster looks of the stock onscreen qwerty keyboard? Luckily, you are able to try different layouts. However, if you’ve ever tried to download a keyboard theme, you have surely found that most only modify the QWERTY layout.

Luckily, XDA forum member aedon has created a theme that modifies every layout. This theme is available in three versions, all of which deliver a much needed touch of love to the aging OS so many still swear by. In the words of the developer:

 So you’ve tried looking for keyboard skins before and were excited about the great new look it gave your phone right?

So, Whose Fault Is It Anyways?

whoft

For as long as we have been here, we have always been faced with difficulties, lack of support, faulty hardware, and seemingly locked-beyond comprehension devices. Nine times out of ten, all the blame will go against manufacturers, you know… those multi-national evil corporations that do nothing else but to bring us the very products that we seem to spend our money, time, and energy on. Apparently, these faceless entities have everything in their control and will give nothing in return to us mere mortals. That is a world wide perception of facts in this technology world of ours, but is it the right perception?

The world as we know it is a global economy with many companies closely tied up in their operation. . . READ ON »

my-phone-microsoft-02

Today is a sad day for Windows Mobile users because Microsoft decided to put an end to Windows Mobile Marketplace and MyPhone services. Many threads are surfacing throughout XDA about the same topic and this is because people who were using those services are being notified by a diplomatic e-mail.

Basically, both services will stop working as per the following schedule:

My Phone back-ups stop 7 August, 2011
My Phone web site closes 6 October, 2011

You may want to backup some of your data because Microsoft will provide automatic migration/backup only for:
