Droid X gets a new lease on life via CM11

We’re not hating on the Droid X – we think nobody who knows his Android history would ever be able to do that to the phone which at its peak was the “for real” iPhone killer. But just four years after its release, it is already considered ancient – such is the pace of technology today. Lo and behold, XDA senior member “Aaahh” has given the old phone a fitting swan song, by successfully installing CyanogenMod’s Android KitKat-based OS on it.

Customizable Quick Settings considered for Android L

If you’re a true blue fan, this piece of news might just get you thanking whatever Android gods you subscribe to (Cyanogen?), as Google has indicated that it is actually considering a customizable “Quick Settings” feature in the upcoming Android L, scheduled to launch within the year. And we can tell that if you have been using Android for a while now, this may just increase the value of keeping a stock version of the OS rather than a tweaked one.

OnePlus teases with ‘promised’ wooden StyleSwap covers

The OnePlus One smartphone might probably reach “urban legend” status because of the one issue that prospective buyers have against it – availability.
