XDAndroid Updated Again – GPS Now Functional!
Posted May 13, 2010 at 10:24 am by Ben Elliott
A few days ago you may have read about the Eclair 2.1 update to XDAndroid for the Touch Pro and Diamond (although since then many users have reported the build to be working on other devices under the XDAndroid umbrella). Well, a mere week later, babijoee and company have once again updated the GSM Touch Pro and Diamond-targeted builds, this time adding complete GPS functionality for the first time – developing credits go to phhusson, cr2 and jonpry for this latest addition.
The lack of GPS, Bluetooth and camera functionality has been a long-time gripe over in the main thread. It’s now been a few months since Bluetooth was fixed and with GPS now done away with, only the camera and video recording aspects of the Android port are left.
Builds are regularly increasing in stability and usability, with some users having used Android instead of Windows Mobile for months on end. To check out the newest version, visit the XDAndroid thread.
