Multi Platform Root Tool for the Motorola Razr i

So, you got your new shiny, slim, and Intel-loaded Motorola RAZR i, and could not be more grateful to Motorola for allowing you to unlock your bootloader simply simply handing them your soul warranty. Your device is now ready to flash anything that comes across your screen, be it a kernel or a ROM. However, not...

Swing and Miss: Motorola RAZR i Kernel Source Almost Here

The newly announced Motorola RAZR i is what many people looking for change have been waiting for. Well, maybe not looking for change, but rather looking forward to Intel's entrance into the mobile handset market. Talk began regarding the Medfield platform, which is essentially an Intel Atom CPU and a PowerVR SGX 540 GPU, which...

Unlock the Bootloader on the Motorola RAZR i

Earlier today, we announced the creation of a forum for the Intel Medfield-powered Motorola RAZR i. As exciting as a new device is, nothing beats the thrill experienced when development work begins. As an excellent first step, let's get started and unlock the bootloader!Motorola devs have always had it hard ever since Android came into...

New Alarm Clock App for That Oft-Hated Moment of the Day

If there's one thing you may hate but may not be able to live without (and no, I am not talking about your significant other), it is the alarm clock. Some people have an internal one and have the uncanny ability to wake up 5 minutes earlier than their alarm; others have one that sits...

Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G Gets CyanogenMod 9 and 10, Exhilarate Gets CM10

HoloNotes Brings Simplistic Styling to Your Note Taking

Given the relative ease in deploying an application to the public in the Android environment (vs. giving Apple your firstborn), there are a large collection of applications which may cause your stomach to go into convulsions when you attempt to use them. So when Google released their Android Design Guidelines, it brought a collective sigh of...

Add Physics to your Homescreen with Node

We have featured several LiveWallpapers on the Portal in the past---everything from Mario dashing through the different worlds in his game and Tetris pieces falling and accommodating themselves to Androids falling on your screen and bouncing around as you move your device. However from time to time, we come across some wallpapers so interesting that...

Get the Latest Walkman from the Xperia S, T, and V on any ICS Device

As we love having different things from different devices on our "non-compatible" phones, we cannot help but enjoy features such as the Sense lock screen, TouchWiz, Blur (riiight), Timescape, and more. One feature that has not gotten a whole lot of press is the Walkman player present in the Xperia S, T, and V devices....

NVFlash for the Asus TF300

The Asus Transformer series share a few things in common with its different iterations: bleeding edge hardware (at the time of release), latest OS, a lousy GPS (someone had to say it), and a special group of developers (including XDA Recognized Developers and forum members rayman, lilstevie, kmdm, apache14 and IEFtm). This peculiar individual is the reason...

Add Actual 3D Wallpapers to your EVO 3D Home Screen

A few weeks ago, we brought you news about an app that enabled 3D on the EVO 3D at all times by XDA Recognized Contributor jmztaylor. In that article, we stated that one of the cool things that one could do with this would be to have actual 3D wallpapers on your screen. However, the process of...

Let Your Fingers do the Running in ShadowRun

We have seen some rather unique concepts on XDA when it comes to indie games. Everything from seeing who can scan the largest number of BT devices to fighting virtual zombies invading your city in a pseudo-AR fashion. After all, slinging birds at pigs can get monotonous after a while. Because of this, seeing new...

Just Like That, Kindle Fire HD 7 Receives the Gift of Root

Just earlier today, we discussed the invulnerable, un-crackable, Kindle Fire HD7 (bootloader, anyway). We talked about how Amazon was trying their hardest to keep you purchasing one important thing for them: content. We also talked about how the device is very well protected at the bootloader level, which means that no custom ROMs will surface any...
