For those of you who are worried about certain tools that sniff your data and prevent you from accessing a wifi network, you can defend yourself with this simple app from XDA forum member gurkedev.
Wifi Protector is an Android security app especially designed to detect and prevent ARP poisoning attacks against your phone in Wifi networks.
The app runs a service on your Android device that continuously monitors network-related parameters. When abnormal behaviour is detected, an alarm is triggered. The type of alarm can be configured and detection and alarms work on non-rooted phones. On rooted phones, it is also possible to reconfigure the phone to make it immune against the attack.

The last time we talked about HP, I presented more evidence that the four known Touchpad devices purchased running Android 2.2 came directly from HP’s production line. Since then, Green, a kernel developer for the Cyanogenmod Touchpad team, was busy working with Ben Maskell of the law firm Roetzel & Andress. Ben Maskell contacted us with a copy of the letter sent Monday, 8 November to HP’s Open Source Program Director, Philip Robb. I produce the CliffNotes version here, but I encourage you to read the full letter.

If you are a fan of adventure side scrolling games on Android devices, then you should not miss out on this wonderfully done game by XDA member TheOneBD. Wind-up Knight somewhat reminds us of Cordy, which is another Android game. In this one, you must guide your character through long levels where he will need to jump, dash, and do everything he can to rescue the princess from the Black Knight. You do all this in a beautifully designed 3D environment that will leave you asking for more, even if the game is about 50 levels long. The game runs rather smooth and it seems that the bardware requirements are for a mid to high end device (Nexus One, Evo 4G, etc).
As it is customary with most Android apps, this is . . . READ ON »

Today is turning out to be a rollercoaster of news for the HP Touchpad. Shortly after last night’s article on how HP installed Android on every Touchpad in order to load the component manufacturers’ drivers for testing hardware, the Cyanogenmod Touchpad team announced the first public release of their CM7 alpha. It was over a month ago that the CM Touchpad team posted footage of Android’s first boot on the Touchpad. The result came at a price of hundreds of hours of volunteered time and tireless effort on the part of the CM developers, and we have nothing but gratitude for everything they did.
As the very first public build, the laundry list of bugs and non-working features is so long, it actu. . . READ ON »

You may recall a few months back that we spoke about a new launcher/UI called Claystone, developed by XDA member claystoneinc. Well, the project didn’t die, and in fact, it got better and better over the last few months. Just in case you don’t recall, Claystone 3D is a panel-type UI, which allows you to put all of your content, running apps, and even your apps drawer, into panels that can be accessed by a few touches and slides on the screen. It looks like the devs behind this decided to make a few major overhauls of the whole concept, such as how you access the panels, addition of more content, etc. One of the major upgrades includes a 3D preview of all your active panels, which looks quite good (think of Se. . .

XDA forum member GameGod72 is an avid user of the Aldiko eBook reader app and recently got himself a tablet. The dev wanted to be able to read his books on both his phone and tablet but could not find anything, and decided to do something about it himself!
Aldiko Sync is the XDA member’s first Android app, which syncs your books and bookmarks across various Android-powered devices.
The app requires Android 2.2+ and root access. Additionally, you’ll need a Dropbox account.

Back in the early 90’s, Curt Johnson cursed the entire world with a game so evil and so consuming that just looking at it would simply force you to spend hours of your busy day just playing it. In case you did not see the header of this article, I am talking about Minesweeper, which is one of the most addictive computer games of the last 25 years. Well, Android is no stranger to this wonderful game but XDA member thiagolr has taken all the necessary precautions to ensure that this never falls out of the popularity charts. MinesSweeper 3D, as its name implies, no longer limits you to a top view, 2D board to play on. This game offers various geometries to challenge your brain and ability to solve the puzzle i. . .

Do you know how sometimes your computer tells you that you are going into an either trusted or non trusted site? Ever wonder how it does this? Well, as it turns out, there are certain certificates that are stored in your computer, which, when provided with the correct keys,will determine if the site is secure or not. Recently, there have been a few incidents where flash cerificates are downloaded to your computer or smartphone which will validate non trusted sites. So, the first thung that would pop in your head would be to try and get rid of said certificates, right? But, how can this be done on Android? To answer this and many other questions, XDA member remzicavdar released a tool in the market that will allow you . . . READ ON »

Well, it looks like development on the Samsung Wave is paying off rather nicely. In case, you haven’t been following the Bada scene, developers have successfully ported Android 2.2 (Froyo) and slapped it on top of Samsung’s proprietory OS in a project called Wavedroid. Well, now that Android is fully functional, tweaking efforts are underway. In this particular case, XDA member ispanecaaaa showed us how to overclock the device to about 1.6 GHz. Most of you Android users will be familiar with this process as it is done with setCPU. However, for this to work properly, a different image must be installed than the original wavedroid one. Also, you need root due to SetCPU being utilized. People have . . . READ ON »
