(see those posts here,) I thought she was an OK reader, but she had a lot of potential that was going to waste. Sure enough not 2 days after I sent the NC back through the mail (I was only borrowing it, after all,) we get news that it's been ROOTED. From there, it was a fantasyland of apps, workarounds, ROMs, everything you could want. Except for one thing. Noone had overclocked it, not even a little bit. Well that's changed, and it's changed today.
September when we first got wind of this crazy maniac, then head below to see the brand new video for Beta #5.
MicroMod777, the unofficial ROM supports 3G data and SMS messaging, but still lacks support for WiFi, the camera, sound and SD card access, among other things. It also lacks the official Google apps and USB mounting support. Certainly not the sort of ROM you could live with every day, then; it remains to be seen whether the hacked installs or Google's official Gingerbread 2.3 release for the Nexus One - tipped for release in the next few weeks - comes first.

custom ROM for the Advent Vega Tegra 2 tablet has been released, adding in Android Market support along with Car Home, Calendar, Contacts, Genie (News and Weather), Gmail, Maps with Street View, Market, Talk, Voice Search and YouTube. The handiwork of MoDaCo's Paul O'Brien, there's also an optional "performance pack" which promises to speed up the tablet. PC World has said that they expect more Vega stock by the end of this week, though the tablet is still currently unavailable.
MIUI ROM. Currently wowing with its combination of slick icons, straightforward multitasking and general visual niceness, the new ROM completely overhauls the UI. More information at xda-developers together with download links, and the Android Community guys are already talking about MIUI here. Anybody tempted? [youtube Or-9T44Bt7M] [Thanks Ewdi!]
