POSTS TAGGED: Motorola Milestone
Posted July 8, 2012 at 07:00 am by FallenWriter
Motorola has a long history of locking down their Android devices in order to prevent customization. From the eFUSE debacle surrounding the original Droid X to their general lack of interest in listening to the developer community, they have proven time and again their willingness to bite the hand that feeds them. Regardless of this, many users have a preference for the high level of hardware build quality provided by their Motorola overlords, and as such continue to purchase the locked down devices.
However, thanks to the efforts of XDA Recognized Developer kabaldan, locked down Motorola devices like the Milestone and the Defy can now enjoy fully functional hardware acceleration.

Since HP announced the release of the webOS source code, the recently abandoned operating system has grown a rather loyal following. Progress has been made in homebrew development and in custom builds for webOS native devices. Many forum members have been clamoring for a port of webOS to Android devices for several months now. Initial ports were expected to appear for the Motorola Droid or its GSM counterpart, the Milestone, since the devices share the same OMAP3 3430 processor with the Palm Pre (the very first native webOS device).

It is not usual for us to write about roms, but in this case, it looks like Gingerbread just hit a Milestone (pun very much intended). We have seen a lot of devices jumping into the Gingerbread bandwagon, leaving behind a fully stable version of Froyo for those not ready to make the switch. For those of you adventurous enough, it seems that the latest device to be graced with a working rom of Android 2.3 is the Motorola Milestone. XDA member edgardcastro brings us this brand new rom based on AOSP. As this is a first release, there is still quite a bit of active development going on with this rom, so you may encounter bugs and some instability. So far, the only thing that is reportedly not working is the GPS, which is a common o. . . READ ON »

Many reviewers have been positive about the changes HTC made to its custom Android UI, HTC Sense. Especially the htcsense.com service, which offers many features to keep track of your lost or stolen phone, is well received. However, because HTC doesn’t update its older phones to have this new version of Sense – which is a bit odd in our opinion – you will have to buy either the Desire Z (Vision) or the Desire HD (Ace, we will be calling these devices by those names in this article). To solve this, some developers ported the ROM from one of those device to other phones. This means that you can enjoy all the goodies of the Sense HD on your own phone!
To make it easy for you, we’ve created a list w. . . READ ON »

Yesterday, we talked about the ROM leak of the HTC Desire HD, or internally called the HTC Ace. This leak contains the new HTC Sense, with many new features which are described in the previous article. We aren’t even one day further, and the developers already managed to get it working on the HTC HD2 – which ironically, is originally running Windows Mobile. A Youtube video (which has been removed for unknown reasons) shows the Ace ROM running quite stable on the HD2. Unfortunately, the HD2 ROM port is not available for the crowd yet. Motorola Milestone owners are luck though; XDA developer Dexter_nlb managed to port the ROM to the Milestone. This ROM is called MotoIncred and the download can be found i. . . READ ON »

Having the best home screen includes having a great looking wallpaper, a good design, and now includes being able to launch applications right from there. The launcher was not made but rather recommended by XDA member iamdarren. He says the launcher is great, fast, stable and offers many options for customization.
The one i am using at the moment, is very very fast with alot of options check it out.
Launcher Pro Beta.. its on the market
Very snappy screen switching!

Although the Motorola Droid and Milestone’s build quality is very good, there are some hardware shortcomings to the devices. One of them is the fact that the sliding mechanism could scratch the back of the display pretty easily.
Forum member dproldan has found a pretty good solution for this by simply sticking some tape on the back of the phone.
Fortunately, he shared this mod with us, and made a nice little guide which illustrates the procedure very well.

A few pictures showing what I did to avoid the scratches that appear behind the display because of the slider mechanism.
I’ve used a couple of pieces of black vinil cut to 10×27 mm. Any other kind of adhesive tap

Although they were recently incorporated, the new forums for the Milestone and Droid already gathered some useful information. XDA member iamdarren made a thread pointing to a thread in the Android Software Development section where XDA member miragu provided an app that lets you overclock your Motorola Milestone/Droid with Android 2.x.

This project consists of a kernel module for Motorola Milestone/Droid with Android 2.x to unlock any processor frequency/voltage combination and a companion graphical app to ease the configuration. The phone must be rooted so that the kernel module can be loaded.
You could overclock to 1.0 GHz before a browsing or gaming session an

Better late than never! …that’s what I think about the new forums for the Motorola Droid and Milestone. There’s so much healthy development surrounding these devices that the admins decided to add a new forum for these phones.
The forum is further divided into five subforums:
We hope this will stimulate more development and developers to come to xda-developers! Enjoy!. . . READ ON »
