[How To] McGyver Your Android’s Battery

Before we begin, remember that the first person to do this was a fellow by the name of Sorensiim, aka the McGyver of Android, so don't be surprised if you can't do it on the first try or you end up making your device explode into a ball of fire all over your face. WATCH OUT because not only is this a hardware hack, it's dealing with live wires which can give you a bit of a zap. Now that we've got that out of the way, lets talk about what Sorensiim did. It began when he was installing a System Recovery app - he clicked the recovery boot button and found that once booting, he got a message that said "Battery low - cannot program." This is what he did.

Android Tablet with Phone Function by ViewSonic to be Showed Off at CES

ViewSonic is expected to bring forth a phone-tablet hybrid sort of device that might very well support 4G at CES next week. It could very will be a doozie. The device will have a four-inch screen, capable of making telephone calls, and will be running some version of Android (seems kind of like everything else so far, right?) Sources speaking with Ian Sherr of Down Jones Newswires said they'd rather not be named since the company is not yet sharing details with the public, but they did let loose that ViewSonic would also be releasing an additional two MORE tablets at CES as well. Tablet rain!

Tired of Read Only? MAGLRD for HD2 Lets you Boot Directly to Android!

Holy crap! A team of Android and WP7 developers and coders by the name of DFT has found a way to allow you to boot directly to Android, straight from NAND memory! What does this mean? It means that the entire OS is now writeable or otherwise easily modifiable. When you're messing with ROMs, you're in Read-Only, requiring that you flash to modify. When your OS is on NAND, you can modify entirely without a recovery flash. What MAGLDR is is a bootloader for HD2 that lets you boot directly from NAND - the ROM available for you to test out now!

Samsung Aims for Number 1 Spot in Mobile, Decides to Replace Nokia in 3 Very Short Years

That's rather presumptuous of them, yes? Not if they've got the phones to back up their hopes and dreams it isn't. Nokia currently holds the top spot for mobile phone manufacturer in the world, but Samsung officials have said that their next 12 months will be very important since they're aiming to outpace Nokia in three years time. The Korea Times reports that Samsung intends to have smartphones and other "premium products" account for over half of its mobile phone production targets in the future - can you say Android?
