April Fools Day is once again upon us and as usual, tech companies everywhere have not failed to keep us entertained. With a trove of fantastic faux product launches and even some real product launches that were taken as April Fools jokes, people have been busy releasing their hilarious ideas. With many of these jokes being nostalgic and some even being functional it's easy to appreciate the spirit behind them. Samsung Galaxy Blade Edge In a reference to the Galaxy...
Use Your XT720 Milestone’s Red Eye Prevention LED as a Flashlight!
So, you come from a different device into the world of the Milestone XT720 and you find out that you cannot annoy your friends with the flashlight app that you are so used to using for this. As it turns out, because the type of flash in the XT720 is a Xenon lamp flash, the lamp itself works differently than other regular LED flash lamps found in other devices. Luckily, XDA member easye420 has come up with a solution for this short coming. LightXT, as its name suggests, is a flashlight application that will work with the XT720’s Xenon lamp to give you flashlight capabilities. Very few, if any, apps out there will allow you to do this with this device (or any other device equipped with such technology). So, now you can go back to that dark stairwell with the confidence that you will not trip on some unseen cable.
Please leave some feedback for the dev as this app is in beta stage and he is currently looking for bugs.
Alright guys here it is. LightXT its pretty self explanatory. This does require you to be rooted. This is V.1 so there might be bugs but I haven’t found any so you should be fine. This has only been tested on US XT720 running Khalpowers miui themed V3 but technically it should work on all models of this phone with the auto focus led.
You can find more information in the application thread.

The beginning of April is dominated by April Fools. There are jokes and pranks everywhere, which are meant to fool people. This news is no joke though, as Google has pushed the shiny red button to send out over-the-air updates to supported devices. Well, sort of, as only a few of available Nexus devices got updates to Android 5.1. Here's a list of OTAs that can be downloaded and flashed by stock recoveries. You can find guides on how to revert...
Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors. I speak, of course, about April Fools Day. As has become their custom, Google launched lighthearted "pranks" for each of their various services (with other tech sites and vendors following suit), and we have done our best to round up the humorous products and tweaks surfacing thus far....
