seen here. Thanks to the HTC Bliss we even received some hands-on video with the new Sense UI. Now all of the developers over at XDA are starting to port the awesome new UI over to all of our favorite HTC phones and the DROID Incredible is up next.
Honeycomb on the HTC Flyer. What happened is a RUU build of Honeycomb 3.2 with Sense UI for tablets was leaked for the HTC Flyer, a device we still weren't sure would even get the update to Honeycomb in the first place. MoDaCo's Paul O'Brien and many others have been working hard and things are developing already.
rooted and achieving S-OFF I'm sure a few of you are eager to see some top quality ROM's for these devices. While there are many over on XDA I just happened to see a video preview of the Sensation 4G (T-Mobile) running CyanogenMod 7 thanks to developer kmobs.
Kernel developer Peter Alfonso has finally come over to the Samsung side to create a version of his Droid build "GPA17" for Samsung's Nexus S 4G. This ROM will be released soon, but for now you'll be adventuring through some nightly builds one by one, helping Alfonso with his developing of said ROM until it's ready for full release. Check out the sweet new flavors!
available now. Back in June Samsung sent a few lucky developers of CM the super phone Galaxy S II and basically invited them to hack it up and get CM7 running on it. The team did just that and as a result we all benefit.
Samsung Galaxy S II you may want some custom ROM love on the device. User pulser_g2 over on the XDA forums has offered up version 1.0 of the VillianROM custom ROM loader for the S II smartphone. The VillainROM 1.0 for the Galaxy S2 smartphone definitely use at your own risk. The author of the software notes that he lacks the smartphone to test his software on.
Samsung Galaxy S II has only been on the market for a short while - and units are still in high demand - but we've already seen one of the first hacks of the smartphone. MoDaCo's Paul O'Brien has come up with a custom GSII insecure boot image that allows for adb shell root and adb remount. The ROM itself doesn't actually root the Galaxy S II, but it will allow owners to push the su binary and Superuser APK required for root. It also disables the flash-recovery script, replacing it with a call to /data/local/custom-scripting.sh. It's not the first root - one method was released at the tail end of April - but we're definitely excited to see more modders turn their attention to the Galaxy S II. While the phone itself impressed us in our review, we also saw plenty of potential as a platform for custom ROMs.
