The Weekly Q&A: Week 33

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 ‘What’s the difference between the ‘Mashup’ and ‘Nightly’ CyanogenMod ROMs?’

A The Nightly ROMs are temporary, experimental builds with minor fixes. Often these ROMs are not completely stable. The Mashup ROMs combine the several fixes from the Nightly ROMs, being released in a stable ROM.

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

Q ‘How can I bring my HD2 back to factory state?’

A The software that comes with a phone when it is bought is called the ‘stock’ software. This software comes directly from the manufacturer, and has not been enhanced by third parties. Many people flash custom ROMs and Radio’s to their phones, for several reasons. However, sometimes it is necessary to return to the stock software, for example for warranty purposes. To return to the stock software, so to bring it back to factory state, all you have to do is to flash a ‘stock ROM’ from your SD-Card. You can find lots of stock ROMs on shipped-roms.com. For more information on how to flash a ROM, or to revert to stock using the other method, continue on to the flashing guide.

  • Q&A originally posted in the HD2 Q&A Forum thread.

Q ‘What does it take to become a Senior Member on XDA?’

A When you have more than 3o posts, your status will change from Junior Member to Member. More than 100 posts will give you the Senior Member title. The Senior Member title does not give you any privileges. Becoming a moderator depends on your attitude, helpfulness and experience, and has nothing to do with the quantity of posts.

  • Q&A originally posted in the About XDA Forum thread.

Q ‘Is it possible to install Windows Mobile on my HTC Desire?’

A No. Due to the fact that Windows Mobile is not open source, it is not possible to install it on any device that is running a different operating system. So, if you want Windows Mobile, you will have to buy a phone that has it pre-installed.

  • Q&A originally posted in the Desire Q&A Forum thread.

Q ‘Is there a way to wake up my HTC Aria using the optical sensor button?

A Yes. There is a special mod available which should allow you to wake up your Aria from standby by a single touch of the optical trackpad. You need to have Clockworkmod Recovery installed, and to know how to use adb commands. For the guide and download, visit the post.

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

If you have a burning question, make sure to search the forum first before posting. If you didn’t find the answer, you can post your question in the appropriate forum.

There are a handful of OEMs that design phones completely different from one another, so chances are you'll find something that suits your needs perfectly. Furthermore, Android itself is very open and customizable, giving users full control over their devices. With Google IO right around the corner, we'd like to know: Which manufacturer and device brought you over to Android?

Frustrated by the lack of a Kickstarter Android App, Grzegorz Oksiuta and Outline have collaborated to design an MD themed Kickstarter app. While Kickstarter has put an end to hopes of a release, the concept looks spectacular and if not for an overly cautious legal department "could be released tomorrow".   "Last year, to keep up with what’s great, I switched from iOS to Android.
