Android Community App Directory, a simple - but full-featured - way to promote your software. Listings in the App Directory can be as simple or as info-rich as you want, and the whole thing is organized by category with user-ratings and commenting. You can also see which software is getting the most attention or the most feedback. We've got a number of new features planned that should roll out over the rest of this week, again answering some of the more common requests we've had over the past few months. Let us know what you think - we're always open to suggestions!
the DROID by Motorola was bound to get rooted sooner rather than later. And guess what, it has happened. We have word from simms22 in our forums, about this good news. Before anything, let's be clear that, if you decide to go on and root your Android device, you take some risks on doing so. Like always, be very careful and have a back-up plan, just in case. And remember that you do this at your own risk. Below you will find the instructions on how to proceed:
Download the zip file and rename it . Rename it to "update.zip" and copy to your sdcard . Power off your DROID and then power it back on again, at the same time hold down the X key . When you see the "/!\" symbol, press both vol+ and camera and and a menu will appear allowing you to install the update.zip file . Once installed you will be able to run "su" from your adb shell.To find the zip file and everything else, including advice, that you'll need to go ahead with rooting your DROID, you need to click on our androidcommunity forums link here. If you have already done it, give us a shout and let us know how you like it. [Thanks to simms22]
San Francisco Chronicle the Os is still "not there yet." With all the Android handsets and other devices being launched onto the market and the buzz that Android devices are creating it is hard to see where the OS is failing though it still needs a few improvements.
nominate your picks for the Android Community Most Valuable Poster. The winner will receive a limited edition HTC Magic from Google I/O. The device also comes with a month of service from T-Mobile, but the phone itself is unlocked for any carrier (aka T-Mo or AT&T in the U.S). Now we're down to the three top nominations. They are: DrVeronica, Susan and JohnnyLicious. So here's the deal, since all three had overwhelming support from the community, we're having final vote for the top MVP of Android Community. All three of these members garnished some incredible support because of their efforts in the community, and they're all fantastic contributors and members of AC, but we only have one phone to give away. Head on over to the comment section in the forums and vote in the poll!
