Social Jogger – Extracted From The Acer Iconia

It looks like most vendors are having their creative teams of programmers and designers working on visually appealing, trademark apps for their devices. Acer seems not to be the exception as they have come out with their very own Social Jogger, which is basically a social network app with plugins for your favorite sites like...

Motorola Atrix 4G Bootloader About To Be Unlocked

Many of us were saddened to find out that the bootloader in Motorola's powerful new Atrix 4G is just as locked down as other recent devices from the manufacturer. However, thanks to some sleuth work care of XDA forum member dasmoover, we may be one rather large step closer to solving that problem. Interestingly enough (I don't know...

Use Your EVO 4G As A Desktop (Yes, Your EVO As Your CPU!!)

So, when you bought your HTC EVO 4G, you probably thought to yourself "I am ditching my PC the moment I get my hands on this." There have been various tools out there that would allow for some PC-like functionality on your EVO, but nothing major and most of them are scattered throughout XDA and...

Viewsonic GTab Overclocked to 1.6 GHz (And Scaled Down to 1.4 Later)

Ahh... the Viewsonic G Tablet. So far, one of the only true contenders to the Motorola Xoom (until the Transformer comes out, that is). This $300 dual core, 10.1 inch tablet has taken the world by storm, particularly because most of its competitors with similar hardware are charging twice as much for their products. In...

Android Spotted Running on a HD7

As much as we hate to admit it, we have been dupped before with stories that are too good to be true (Motorola RSA keys cracked anyone?). However, the good people from xda.cn have provided us with a few real surprises in the past. This time, they share a video of  a HD7 running a...

AR.DRone Unofficially Coming For Android

This is not exactly a XDA development, but as it is becoming available for Android, we figured we would share it with the rest of the community, particularly with those of you not aware of its existence. XDA member nebenezer found this little gem floating around in the Android market and decided to share it...

ShootMe Mod for Higher FPS

Not too long ago, there was an app in the Android Market called ShootMe. This app basically allows you to not only take screenshots of your device but it also allows you to do screencasting, which basically translates to doing video of your screens. The original app was rather limited though as it only allowed...

X10 Bootloader Bypassed

Due to the proximity of the date, we were unsure whether this was a very clever April fool's joke or a real development. After reading up a bit, we have now confirmed that this is the real deal. X10 owners can finally rest in peace and rejoice because the long, much awaited development of the...

Remove Sense LockScreen On Your Thunderbolt

If you're not a big fan of the HTC Sense LockScreen that comes default on your new Thunderbolt, XDA forum member Master™ has posted a simple script to remove it from your Android device. It's a simple script for ClockWorkRecovery that removes the HTC Sense LockScreen files, so that you can use the stock AOSP LockScreen....

Multitouch Enabled on the Huawei Ideos C8150/U8150

While this device does not exactly have its own forum on XDA, this does not stop it from having at least some development made on it. XDA member tj_style just told us that he has been working on this device and among other things, he was able to get multitouch working on this device. You...

Control Everything With BlueputDroid for Android

You may remember about 1 month ago, we wrote an article about an app called BlueputDroid. This app was used to control a PS3 via the Android device and could be used as a touchpad or a keyboard to make things like typing on the PS3 a little bit easier. Well, it looks like its...

Thunderbolt’s Kernel Source Code Released!

Looks like many of our beloved phone manufacturers are beginning to realize that the true development for their devices does not happen in their labs, but rather as soon as they hit the streets. As a result of that (and GPL licensing requirements), we are seeing that many companies are releasing the source code for...
