Party Time–The HTC Dream G1 is Six Years Old!

unnamed

A few interesting events took place six years ago. In the USA, the biggest chart-topping song was “Whatever You Like” by T.I., while in the UK people were enjoying Kings of Leon’s “Sex On Fire”. The weather was nice as well in September, but probably the most exciting event took place in the city of New York where HTC announced their first smartphone running Android OS. The HTC Dream on T-Mobile was officially presented to public. Today, the G1 is six years old and we would like to wish it a happy sixth birthday!

It all began back in 2005 when Andy Rubin, the CEO of Android Inc., got an astonishing offer from Google, which at the time was most well known for its search engine. Our dear friends from Mountain . . . READ ON »

snap20100710_005208

Who does not like a new set of fresh icons? This time, XDA member newone757 presents Dimunition Icon set for your Android device. All icons are showed in black in the gallery, so you may have a hard time to make them look right on the first configuration, but after that they should look just like in the thumbnail.
This is the first icon set contribution from the developer, so please leave feed back.

Uploading an old set I made but never shared.

Enjoy

Only problem is they show up all black in the gallery. So whatever you use to replace icons (folder organizer, bettercut, etc) you have to use andexplorer or astro to browse by filename and select your icon…

SnapSwap for Android

snap20100531_213807

XDA member Ciela presents SnapSwap for Android devices. This application will let you take a photo and send it to a random person, and you will in return receive a random photo back.
This first version just left the beta stage and some members stated that it runs stable, altough some minor bugs are still present, such as not being able to delete the pictures as it creates 2 duplicate imges, which have to be deleted manually. The developer included the apk file so you can download it and install it.
Don´t worry if application starts with a blank screen as there is no default image yet, just press the menu key to begin.

Another Cool Anti Apple BootScreen

boot2

In this day and age, having a cheerful startup to your awesome device is very important, and to some, it reflects their views. Well, this one spells your views to others. Created by XDA member CyberWalrus, this bootscreen tries to make your device’s startup look, call, and tells your friends “EAT THIS APPLE”. Now, this startup screen is not the best anti Apple boot screen I have seen, but I think it’s just right. Perfect balance with a little hate, animation, and flashy.

Thanks a lot to phaelox, who made the zip attached for you to flash, without him, this bootscreen wouldnt work!
I made this bootscreen because I felt that villainROM is so good it seserves its own bootscreen, and I im kin
