Money Is Time Or Time Is Money!

Have you ever heard the saying, "time is money"? I know I have. I've heard it more than I've had hot dinners. But I've always wondered whether or not the phrase does apply, and if so, how much money is lost at any particular occasion.XDA member Tricky-Design has got our backs on this one. He's...

HD2 ToolBox and Hot Bootloader

Running Linux on mobile phones is something a lot of developers have tried to do and have failed. It's also something a lot of developers have tried to do and have succeeded, on an array of different devices. If you're an HTC HD2 owner, then we have some good news for you. Not only do...

Think You Know Your Flags? Test it With Quizz Flag

Do you ever find yourself coming across country-flags occasionally and thinking to yourself, "I wonder what country that's representing"? I know I do. Sometimes I even come across a collection of them in one place, recognise most of them, but get caught out with at least one. Well, here at XDA we may have found...

How to Make Your Own Boot Animations!

We all like to be greeted by our phones by a pretty little animation which relates to us in some way, is of something we like, or we just generally like the look of. Granted, there is a staggering number of cool animations here on XDA, created by some of the greatest developing minds, ever....

Mariolicious CM7 Theme — Nostalgic Eye-Candy

Do you remember, "back in the day", when the Nintendo was the equivilent of the Playstation 3? You would control your little eccentric 2D Italian man, collecting coins and performing hundreds of acts of animal cruelty. Being now a relic of a time gone by, whenever faced with something as old as Mario, but as...

Stock Kingdom Gingersense 3.0 Ported to Droid Incredible! — Incredible!

This is a highly anticipated development, which will definitely not go without substantual recognition. If you've been keeping up with developments surrounding the new Kingdom Sense 3.0, you'll know that a mission was started more than a month ago to fully port the OS base to any other device that was humanly possible. And after...

Niteowl Sense 3.0 Icons — Grab Some Style

Custom icon packs can be things of absolute beauty. Especially when each pack screams of creativity. One type of icon pack a lot of users have been craving as of late is that which includes the new Sense 3.0 UI style icons. I am glad to say that your search may finally be at an...

MIUI Theme Bonanza!

MIUI is something that I don't feel gets enough attention here on XDA. As an MIUI user, as of yesterday, I now understand what our own Chad Hughes of XDA TV meant when he said "it's as close as it comes to an OS replacement". Disregarding the speed and stability of this type of ROM,...

Market Themes — Every Colour of the Rainbow

If you're an Android user, you probably use the Market a lot. But what if you're not a green person? What if you're more of a red person, or a blue? There are many Market themes on XDA, but rarely do you come across a thread which includes many different colours, as opposed to one.XDA...

3 Second Call Silence in Gingerbread Fix!

Are you happy with your Gingerbread device? Everything on it works perfectly? It's your pride and joy and you'd never give it up for the world? This is what everyone thinks about any piece of technology they own, until something goes wrong. The "thing" going wrong for a lot of people recently is an audio...

Well... actually, so do I.The same goes for XDA member doixanh, who loves the Gingerbread animations, and is looking for a way to let all of you Froyo users get a piece of the action! Several videos...

Atrix Bootloader Almost Bypassed — Like a Boss

Cracking the Atrix bootloader is something man has been on a quest to do ever since it was released. When I say man, I'm of course referring to the fantastically techy ladies and gentlemen in our forums.XDA member kholk has been working very hard to make this a reality, rather than a dream. He's successfully managed...
