Old But Not Dead – Rhodium And Raphael Get Complete Froyo Ports

xdandroidthumb

It looks like this has been some week for Windows Mobile devices in terms of getting back on the spot light. Just as you were thinking about going back to Android goodness on your Sensation, members that have been here for 2 years or more will certainly realize that this is indeed a piece of good news, good enough to unbury your old Raphael and your not-so-old Rhodium. It looks like XDA member arrrghhh and his team have finished adding the final touches to their Froyo ports for both aforemention devices. The porting projects of Android onto Windows Mobile devices is nothing short of a fantastic proof of how far our devs can go if they put their minds on things. In this case, the dev states that this port can be used as a da. . . READ ON »

Turn Your Android Device Into a Mouse With Mr. Mouse

mrmouse

We have seen some apps before like Blueput Droid, which can alow you to use your Android device as a touchpad, and this can be quite useful if you are out on the road with a laptop. However, there are many people who can’t stand touchpads and for the most part need a mouse. What if I told you that you could use your Android device as a mouse with the help of the sensors and camera? If this does sound interesting, let me introduce you to XDA member MM32 who has created an app to do exactly this. It is currently only available for Windows PC (sorry Linux and Mac users), but the app seems to work quite well. As stated before, it uses the camera, OpenCV, and the sensors to track your movements in space, which get translated in. . . READ ON »

Do You Hate Adding Events On Your Calendar? If So, Try This…

quickEvent

Since the dawn of mobile devices, one of the most widely announced functionalities that they carry is a calendar/organizer built in, which is supposed to help you be more organized in your daily activities. However, having to fill out a bunch of fields can be a more tedious task than trying to remember the activity oneself. Do you not wish that your calendar could just schedule something by typing a simple message as it if was your own personal assistant? If your answer to this question is yes, then you must check out Quick Event for Android by XDA member roee88. The app will allow you to simply type in a small description of the event and it will go ahead and automatically fill out all the fields for you. No more scroll. . . READ ON »

Collision Physics On Your LWP With Motion Timer for Android

collidion

There is no better way to show the capabilities of a phone equipped with an accelerometer and a fair bit of graphics power than with physics simulation programs. Having the simulations continuously running in the back of your home screen is also the best way to show other people that there is more to be done with your background than just a static picture. So, if you are the kind of people who likes to show off, then you should try out this LWP created by XDA member Juan Kerr. If you are unsure of what the LWP actually is, the dev has posted a video in Youtube, which shows how smooth this runs. Basically, you can add up to 32 balls on your home screen, which will move up and down based on the position of your device. All this whi. . . READ ON »

All In One Galaxy Hack Pack

HackPack33hackingtools

Our devs spend countless hours and tons of blood, sweat, and tears in the process of gathering information and knowledge so that they can make our devices better. This is no easy task as you have to remember that manufacturers don’t always provide the documentation required to do half of the things that we normally do on our phones and tablets. In many rare occasions, the tech representatives from the manufacturers will have nothing themselves. So, where does one go to get this information? To answer your question and save you a ton of search time, XDA Recognized Developer AdamOutler has put together what he calls the “Galaxy Hack Pack”. The dev, as you may know from some of his work, has spen. . . READ ON »

Multiboot Option for X10 Mini

multiboot for x10

It seems that most people cannot make their minds about what to run on their devices. Some like roms that are stable and reliable even if it means going back a version or 2. Others lean towards the bleeding edge that comes out almost daily in this site. If you are among these poor souls, you should definitely check out the mod created by XDA member nobodyAtall for the Sony Ericsson x10 Mini. This will allow people using CWM to boot into different images that are stored in the SD card of the device. According to the dev, you must have a a fairly quick storage card with plenty of space as each image will take over 400 MB of space.

This is still very experimental but the dev has provided a good set of instructions, which should m. . . READ ON »

One-Click Unbrick For Samsung Captivate

oneclickunbrick

By this point in time, if you have been a member of this site for longer than a couple of years, you have witnessed rather complicated processes such as rooting and flashing, turned into easy 1 click procedures. These are normally fool proof and will let you get the most out of your devices while saving you a few hours of reading. However, there is always a risk of bricking your device. This is a time for you to sit down with a good cup of coffee and start reading because unbricking is a fairly complicated procedure that may require special hardware to get it accomplished (JTAG). It looks like this is a thing of the past for Captivate owners because XDA Recognized Developer AdamOutler just released a 1 click unbricking . . . READ ON »

LG Optimus Black Forums Added

logo

We hadn’t added anything in a while, so after much deliberation and tons of requests, we have decided to give LG Optimus Black owners a little spot to play, hack, develop, and do everything that is normally done on XDA. The device seems a bit on the medium to low end side, considering some of the other higher end devices that LG has been putting out lately. However, it still packs quite a punch with  a 1 GHz OMAP 3630 processor from Texas Instruments, 512 MB, and a few other features including a very slim profile, the “now” mandatory 5 MP camera, and a few other perks. The only downside of this device is that it comes loaded with Froyo 2.2.1, which is likely the more reason for so many people requesting . . . READ ON »
