Nexus One – The First Phone to Receive a Honeycomb Full SDK Port

honey N1

I am sure you have been following our dev’s every step for the last week or so as Android’s newest sweet treat was ported to a few devices including the Nexus One, EVO, Desire, and Desire HD, among others. As of a few days ago, our devs were able to replace the “preview” SDK that they were playing with by the official, full blown SDK for Honeycomb. As our devs don’t like to waste any time, XDA member bypass23 who was the author of the Nexus One port has updated his port with the official SDK, thus making this the first official port of this official SDK. According to the dev, the port was not as simple as just replacing the boot.img. About 95% of all libs and apps were replaced, and even the ram. . . READ ON »

Android Honeycomb Ported to the Nexus One!

nexus-one
It’s only been weeks since the official announcement of Honeycomb, the latest edition of Android, and we’ve already seen developers here at XDA manage to run it on existing devices. However, its recent port to Google’s Nexus One is probably the most interesting of all, as this is arguably the most popular device that the tablet-oriented operating system has been shown to work on.
With the help of other developer, XDA member bypass23 has used the Honeycomb SDK to compile a booting ROM for his phone. Of course, with development at such an early stage, you should not expect much (if anything) to be working if you do choose to flash his work. Nonetheless, it is very interesting to see how quickly Ho. . . READ ON »

Answer and End Calls Using the Nexus One Trackball

Nexus_One-trackball-540x358

Although the Google Nexus One has been available since June January 2010, and many new phone models have been released since then, the development community is still very active. This hack, made by XDA member Nushio, is another example of that: it allows you to answer and end calls with a simple click on the trackball. It also includes many other small but very useful features to make it a complete software add-on that – in our opinion – really increases user experience.

If you’re one of the few people that miss having an ‘answer button’ on the Nexus One, you’re in for a treat. Unless you’re using a Sense-based ROM

New Hack for Desire and Nexus One: data2ext

snap20101114_130345

Because of the low amount of available memory for user data, developers have been trying to enhance the way Android handles OS-specific data and applications. They do this by referring to the SD card instead of the main memory itself. This makes it possible to install many more applications. This hack is called app2SD, which is widely known by many Android users across various devices.

Now, XDA member ownhere has come up with something new: data2ext. What this hack basically does is changing some partition settings (loopback) to increase write performance and to saver power. Originally created for the HTC Desire, it delivers some huge improvements and it really is a must-have for the Desire. The benchmark sc. . . READ ON »

Get the HTC Typing Experience on your G2

2

If you hate the G2’s soft keyboard, you can sit back and relax because it was found that the HTC keyboard hack for the Nexus One works correctly on the T-Mobile G2. This keyboard, which is an enhanced version of the stock HTC keyboard, has some pretty nice features built-in. It’s made by XDA developer jonasl, and the features are endless – almost literally. It’s amazing to see how much work has been put into this keyboard – it’s been updated more than 25 times now, and many of them contain new features –  and it’s great that it’s also compatible with the T-Mobile G2. Yet the developer is planning to discontinue it for now:

The Weekly Q&A: Week 11

Q&A img

Every week, we select five questions and answers, found on the forums. Even though some of these questions and answers might not be of help for you, they might still be interesting to read.

Q ‘Is the screen of the HTC HD7 the same as the one found on the HD2?’

A Yes. Some people stated that the HD7 sports a Super LCD screen, but it is just a ‘normal’ TFT LCD screen. Not really normal though, compared to the new screen technologies these days, we’re wondering why HTC chose to include this somewhat outdated screen technology.

  • Q&A originally posted in the HD7 General Forum thread.

Q ‘Is Android really secure to bank on? ‘

A No, it is not completely secure. Especially a roo. . . READ ON »
