Tutorial: Running psx4droid On Your Nexus One
Some of you may have been eagerly awaiting the release of psx4droid by developer ZodTTD. Well, the PSX emulator for Android devices was released to the Market today, and already there have been multiple posts about this by XDA members.
However, there have been reports of difficulty in getting the emulator to work, so XDA forum member ap3604 has helpfully posted a step by step tutorial to get the emulator working on a Google Nexus One. (Note the tutorial may also be applicable for other Android 2.0 and above devices).
The tricky part according to ap3604, is that the ROMs have a different type of ECM file that is not recognised by the emulator. ECM is a compression technology heavily used in many PSX projects, which have an additional layer of compression. Normally ECM’ed games cannot be played until they have been uncompressed from this additional layer. Thankfully, ap3604 has provided the link and instructions to resolve this dilemma.
Note that root is not required.

HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this. But a particularly...
The first gen of Android One devices to be launched in India in September 2014 were decent starter smartphones, featuring budget specs and a promise of fast updates. However, the phones did not pick up as big a response as Google hoped. Now, as per a report by The Economic Times, it appears that Google is rethinking their strategy towards Android One in India. The first gen Android One devices focused on first time smartphone users, but were flawed in...
