Working HD2 Green Mango With Working Marketplace

Ports on our devies are simply brilliant projects. They are, for the most part, dreams come true. For instance, having Windows Phone 7 running on a much older device was deemed by many as an impossible feat. However, after lots of collaboration between devs, the project got successfully completed by our friends over at DFT. As it is customary with Microsoft, the new updates of the OS roll out filled with bugs, bug-fixes, and new and improved security updates. Now, translating that into plain English, security updates stand for patching loopholes and exploits that allowed hackers to do more fun stuff with the device and the OS. The case is here for Mango as well, which our friends at DFT ported once more. However, as it was the case for the original port, Market does not work with the new version, or at least it didn’t until earlier today when XDA member elfinlazz released his first rom, which happens to be loaded with a Market enabler tool that he coded himself. Being connected to Live services will allow you to have the full experience that you can expect from Windows Phone 7.

Please go ahead and try it out and let the dev know if there are any problems with it.

What’s Next for Samsung and Its Flagships?

If we were to say that the Galaxy S6 was a leap of faith made by Samsung, we wouldn't be too wrong. After all, the device marked a definite change in how Samsung perceived the market and its own place in it, as it stood amongst the signs of decline which started with the critical reception of the Galaxy S5. To recap, the Samsung Galaxy S5 was criticized heavily for feeling more like a toy, rather than a premium flagship...
