Play God With Your Samsung Galaxy S Using Nitrality

Having the ability to control your phone in many ways is fun and helpful at times. Changing things and adding that little extra 'flourish' makes your phone, yours. But sometimes not everything you need is integrated into one app, and most of the time, apps don't 'talk to each other', which can cause issues sometimes. Thankfully,...

Amazing developments are something we're not new to here on XDA, with our amazing community of outstanding developers and friends. But that doesn't mean there aren't surprises around every corner. Today's surprise comes from XDA member anantshri, who has successfully managed to get Backtrack 5 to run on an Xperia X10. Backtrack, based on Ubuntu Lucid LTS,...

For example, if it's raining, a video plays which shows rain droplets hitting a puddle and creating ripples. If you're familiar with the new and upcoming...

‘Mind-Bending’ Portal 2 Boot Animation

Now, don't think I'm being generalistic here, but chances are the majority of you are gamers, and quite avid one's at that. I love a good ol' game myself, especially on Steam. All of Valve's source games have been fantastic, from the release of the heroic Half-Life with Gordan Freeman to the mind-bending adventure, Portal....

Get ADW Launcher 2 in Beta!

When I discovered this thread, it shocked me slightly as to the fact that it hasn't received more 'buzz'. ADW, to me, has always been a pretty dandy launcher. It's always ran quickly, had awesome customising options and rarely crashed (if ever). That's why when I found out ADW has a second version in beta,...

Manage All Your Boot Animations with Bootanimation Utility

Sometimes, for however short amount of time it may be on for, it's nice to be greeted by your phone by a potentially awesome boot animation. Now, that's all well and good, but getting the boot animation onto your phone and setting it to run is usually best done with an app. I'm sure there...
