Try Froyo on your PC

Ok we have now Gingerbread around for our devices, but what about testing Froyo on your computer? XDA member tomlogan1 let us know about a way to do it, of course some coding language knowledge is needed but nothing that will completely confuse you. You will need to download VMware, a desktop virtualization software that will let you install Froyo on your PC.
You can try this to show off with your friends but not as a replacement for your every day OS. This is no doubt fun to try. Please leave feed back whether it is working or not for you.

Continue to the original thread to know more about this.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Drop Test

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are already proving to be amongst the head turners of 2015. From favoring their inhouse Exynos 7 SoC over the Snapdragon 810 SoC (which ended up causing issues to its main rival); to ditching the removable battery and micro sd card slot in favor of a more "premium" device, the flagship duo have a lot going on for them at this stage. Regarding the premium redesign which replaced plastic with metal and glass,...
