myp

MyPlayer was one of my favorite application back in the days of Hulu support, but even without this, users can still enjoy some BBC shows. The popular Windows Mobile application has now gone Android thanks to XDA member FryWalker, and it still keeps some of the good features we all love, without the bugs we all have grown to hate.

This is a light-weight application that provides access to the BBC iPlayer service directly – eliminating the requirement for a (flash-enabled) mobile browser.
myPlayer is also available on the Windows Mobile platform
** This application requires an Internet connection based within the UK **

Features:
> Extensive BBC iPlayer integration

bapscreen

Having an awesome boot screen on Android devices is becoming a very hard task with all these available packages, but this Windows application is here to help. Made by XDA member camalot, this application sets out to give you access to your boot files, allowing you to see the animation. This way, you’ll know what looks the coolest before you load it all up.

This is a tool for windows that will allow you to preview a boot animation (bootanimation.zip) file before applying it to your device. If you have the SDK in your environment path, it will also allow you to apply the boot animation to the device. I have tested about 50 boot animations and only had 2 that wouldn’t load, and they didn’t load because t

33770450-2-440-FT-2

Android Eclair updates for both the GSM and the CDMA (Sprint) Hero variants have been promised for months, but again and again these only seemed like empty promises.

However, and much to everyone’s surprise, Sprint and HTC today announced the availability of this mysterious and wonderful update from the moulding, old Cupcake build with which the Hero was released to the shiny and delicious Eclair version of Android that we’d started giving up hope for.

The ROM update is available on the official HTC’s website, as opposed to being over-the-air like other phone updates have been. Unfortunately, there’s been nothing yet announced with regard to the GSM version. You can expect to see . . . READ ON »

Superuser App Gets Refreshed

su-2.1-1

So XDA forum member ChainsDD decided it was time the original superuser app written back in 2008 got a new look and some new features.

Originally written by XDA member Koush, the Superuser app allows specified applications to get root when authorised. The program works with any application that uses su – no special code or support needs to be written.

ChainsDD has given the Superuser app a complete refresh making it more easy to read showing each permission by it’s name rather than it’s UID.

Originally posted by ChainsDD:

  • Many translations (Spanish, German, Czech, Greek, French, Italian, Dutch and Danish).
  • Optional notifications.
  • A dialog that shows details of each permission includ
