Touch Pro Gets the Gingerbread Treatment.

While not really a part of the XDANDROID project, it is good to see that Android ports for the TP and the Diamond have not stopped. XDA member e334 points us to a thread by Neopeek, who apparently has managed to get a working port of Gingerbread for the Diamond. Needless to say that the title of the thread is pretty self explanatory and the rom is in alpha stage, so it is expected to have plenty of bugs. However, the dev states that many of the necessary functions (like wifi, voice calls, and more) are functional, so it mae only be a matter of ironing the bugs a bit here and there.

If you do decide to have a piece of this OS in your device, make sure that you leave some feedback behind.

Before continuing be aware of: This is an Alpha release and now it seems usable (on my HTC Diamond it is!)! So before you do anything I suggest you to make a backup of your data / files! So read everything careful now :

You can find more information in the port thread.

Open War for Open Android: Antitrust for Cyanogen?

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...

What Do You Do with All of Your Old Photos?

Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us.

Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
