Monitor EeePad Internal and Dock Battery With Dual Battery Widget

ss-1280-2-2

EeePad Transformer owners who want to be able to monitor both the internal tablet and dock batteries can do so with XDA Senior Member Flexer‘s Dual Battery Widget. The app has received significant updates since the last time we spoke about it.

The widget displays the status for the internal and secondary batteries in the EeePad dock station. For devices other than the EeePad Transformer, the widget will only show the main battery icon.  The widget is resizable and can be as small as 1 cell on your screen. Advanced options allow you to change the size and positions of the status text, and hide the second battery gauge when disconnected.

Dual Battery Widget is available for free on the Android Market. For mor. . . READ ON »

ASUS Transformer Boasts a 500Gb Hard Drive

IMG_20110902_144838 (Small)

A thing of fairytale, the idea of 500Gb storage on a tablet. Especially on any device we own, it’s something no one has seen or heard of, only complained about.

The ASUS Transformer, for me, really is the peak of progression. It was the product we, in the technology community, had been waiting for for a very long time, and didn’t expect to see it rising over the horizon. The Transformer as a whole is comparable to a Macbook Air or a netbook, because of its design, being the same size and featuring the same functionality. The tablet itself is comparable to the iPad 2, with its aluminium design, mobile operating system, and camera’s, front and back. There is an element of functionality which sur. . . READ ON »

The Weekly Q&A: Week 47

QA-img2

As part of our regular Q&A session here on the XDA-Developers Portal, I’ll be covering some questions and issues frequently seen here in the world of XDA. This week, we’ll concentrate on everyone’s favorite large-screened devices–Honeycomb-powered tablets!

Q: Is it possible to turn the a500 display off when connecting to a TV using HDMI out? If you try to lock the device (hit the power button), it halts the device completely. There is not brightness option for “completely off,” so that’s not an option. Ideally, I’d like to save battery if I’m watching a movie via HDMI. Does this require a 3rd party app, if so, do you know of any? [Question . . . READ ON »

One Click Root Script For Asus Transformer on Linux

one-click-root

We all love simplicity in our lives. This is a concept that has spread throughout the technology world, a concept that is based on the law on minimal efforts (getting the same amount of work done, while reducing the actual input on said task). Rooting is always a fun activity but it can be quite time consuming if you are not sure of what you are doing. So, XDA member rebound821 decided that it was time to give Transformer owners something a bit simpler to get their root going. The one-click could not come at a better time due to the release of Honeycomb 3.2 for the Transformer a couple of days ago. The one drawback at this point is the fact that this only works on Linux (sorry Windows users). However, the dev has provided . . . READ ON »
