Make Your Galaxy Tab More Versatile Thanks to USB Host Functionality

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA

We all want one thing with our devices, and that is that they become an ultimate electronic Swiss Army knife. One feature that only certain devices are privy to is the ability to use their USB ports as hosts in order to accept external devices such as input hardware like keyboards and mice, as well as memory devices like thumb drives and others. Thanks to the efforts of XDA member punkgeek, the owners of the original Galaxy Tab can now enjoy the benefits that USB host capabilities bring with it. The dev seems to have included the required modules into a kernel, which he has shared with the rest of the community.
Please be sure to try it out in tour tab and make sure that you leave feedback as well as what types of devices yo. . . READ ON »

PowerBubble – Quality Bubble Level, Great Graphics

SC20110817-103837

There are many spirit level applications around – for all OS’s, probably because it’s a good type of application for developers to have a first go at – and XDA forum member go goad‘s Bubble Level is just that.

The dev states that it is his and a friend’s first try in the Android Market, but that the focus is on quality so Bubble Level should be quite polished.

The app has ads, but they can be switched off from the settings menu, and is available for free in the Android Market.

Features include:

  • Slick graphics
  • Nice physics
  • LCD display that shows numeric angle with or without decimals
  • Ease of use (tips are shown on LCD)
  • Independent calibration for all four sides of the phone
  • Angle lo

screenshot_epic_3

XDAer Metastable‘s Epic Audio Visualizer collection of sound-receptive live wallpapers has been enjoyed by many users since its release back in June. Correspondingly, Metastable has added several new wallpapers since, along with bugfixes and various optimisations across the wallpaper collection.

Recent additions include Falling Object, Laser and Galaxy style visualisations. As with some of the stock Android live wallpapers, these have been designed to respond to changes in audio output from the device – expect to see the pattern change as a song your phone is playing progresses.

Follow the Creation of a Live Wallpaper

wydey

Metastable, creator of the Epic Audio Visualizer live wallpaper collection, has recently decided to share some of the knowledge behind the developer’s ingenious creations through a thread in which the steps of creating a new live wallpaper are detailed.

While designing and creating a live wallpaper reproduction of Canadian musician Deadmau5’s current concert set, Metastable thought the XDA community would be interested to know what really goes into masterminding an example of one of the most popular cosmetic features of the Android platform.

By following the thread, users can read the code that is required for various effects and observe the direct outcome of tweaking such information. . . . READ ON »

Motorola Triumph Forums Added

logo

A little late of an announcement but worth pointing out for those of you who have not noticed this. Late last week, we added Motorola’s latest member of the droid family to our forums. The Motorola Triumph is a step in the opposite direction for Motorola. It was likely released as a mid range phone, while it has rather good hardware, it really does not offer anything that one could call breaking. However, for those of you who are just getting started on Android, this is a pretty good device as it comes loaded with Froyo, which is nice and stable. Most of the regular features in the Motorola Droid family are present such as a 4.1 inch WVGA screen, 1 GHz processor, and a HD out port capable of putting out up to 720p video. . . READ ON »

Give Your Samsung Continuum the Gift of Leaked Froyo!

froyo

While the Samsung Continuum is capable of some quite impressive feats that no other Android phone can do, one thing it cannot do is upgrade past Android 2.1 Eclair. Well, that was true until XDA forum member imnuts provided us with the leaked Android 2.2 Froyo build that Verizon and Samsung have yet to share with us.

Alleviating the pains of the seemingly forgotten stepchild in the Galaxy S family, the EC03 update improves upon the previous DL17 update substantially by ushering in the JIT compiler among other notable changes. Currently, there are no customized kernels to go with this release, but you can be sure it won’t be too long before something pops up on XDA.

 Here is the update that everyone ha

Do You Have A Sidekick 4G? Would You Like To Cook Your Own Rom? Then, Read This…

sidekick4g

We have several devices on our site that are seemingly abandoned due to the low interest of some devs to look into them. One device that almost falls into this category is the Sidekick 4G from T-Mobile. If you are bored with the device and wish there was something cool to do to it, then you may want to check out the guide posted by XDA member Revolution. The dev is the chef for the Revolution HD ROM for this device and decided, after being asked quite a few times, to teach our members how to fish. The guide is complete and even includes a video in case something is not exactly clear. There will be a few tools that you will need but you don’t need to worry ad they are all free.

If you have a Sidekick and would like to make your . . . READ ON »
