The ICS frenzy is beginning to find more and more devices each day. Many of these actually branch out from the ever popular AOSP ROMs, and more specifically, CyanogenMod 9. While there are no official CM9 releases for various devices, there are devs out there who will put out unofficial CM-derived kangs for devices that may not have made “the cut” for official inclusion by the CM team. The Motorola XT720 Milestone is one such device. With ICS ports hitting other devices left and right throughout the site,  XDA Forum Member mchlbenner decided to try and give the frozen treat to the owners of this device.

So far, the port is actually in a alpha/early beta stage as it has some basic functionalit. . . READ ON »

Use Your XT720 Milestone’s Red Eye Prevention LED as a Flashlight!

flash xt720

So, you come from a different device into the world of the Milestone XT720 and you find out that you cannot annoy your friends with the flashlight app that you are so used to using for this. As it turns out, because the type of flash in the XT720 is a Xenon lamp flash, the lamp itself works differently than other regular LED flash lamps found in other devices. Luckily, XDA member easye420 has come up with a solution for this short coming. LightXT, as its name suggests, is a flashlight application that will work with the XT720’s Xenon lamp to give you flashlight capabilities.

In their own site, Motorola made the statement that the XT720 would not be receiving an upgrade to Froyo and that it would remain as an Eclair-exclusive device. Little did they know that the good old people in the hacker community had been working hard to prove them wrong. Well, it seems that the fruits of the labor put on this project paid of greatly as XDA member Dexter_nlb posted a rom, and kernels to turn your XT720 into the delicious frozen treat also known as Froyo. Everything seems to be functional and the newer releases have many of the bugs ironed out. There are only a few bugs being reported for 1.2, which just proves how advanced this port currently is.

motorola-xt720

A lot of people decided to ask for it, we were getting slammed with requests, so for all of you… here it is. The Motorola Milestone XT720 forums have surfaced on XDA for full fledged development. In case you are wondering why this device was so requested, while it is a mid range device for most specs, the 8 MP camera, which is capable of shooting 720p HD video would certainly more than make up for it. It also has a very modest price tag on it, so it is a very good entry to mid range Android device if you are just getting into this new world of Android and all of its delicious releases.
