XDANDROID Project Update Released

If you thought that the XDANDROID project was coming to an end, think again. XDA moderator babijoee and his team have just released an update for this multi-device port of Android for WM. The update addresses a few issues with layout as well as some functionality issues that may be annoying you at the moment. The most noticeable one is the work being done on the light sensor for the automatic brightness adjustment.

A few other updates include newer applications, like Google apps. If you are using this port, make sure that you go through the whole change log in case modification to something is needed.


  • The following bugs were fixed:
  • Talk.apk missing
  • Buttons cut off in the open call menu.
  • OpenWnn IME selected by default
  • Google Apps updated to 20101020.1
  • Transitioned to hdpi graphics and fonts
  • Ambient light sensor and hardware auto brightness for RAPH and RHOD (WisTilt2)
  • Debug output for battery service emergency shutdowns (by request of camro)
  • Data roaming off by default (can be dangerous for international users) (emwe)
  • armv6j instruction support from cyanogenmod

You can find more information in the project thread.

New AOSP Branch Details Potential Build System Upgrades?

While there are frequent unexplained changes and pushes to Google's AOSP repositories, an interesting-looking new branch has been pushed out recently, called "master-soong". Taking a look at the changes made to the manifest repository (which is used to specify the repositories to be downloaded when building Android), it appears there are some new repositories making an appearance.

Send Links to Any Nearby Device with CaastMe

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end?
