HTC Sensation ROM provides 1.56GHz Overclock

It appears that the developer known as mike1986 has created a lovely new ROM for the HTC Sensation specifically which bumps the device's processor speed up to 1.56 GHz. While this device's original dual-core processor speed was clocked at 1.2GHz, this ROM provides the device with the original stock speed of its MSN8660 chipset, that being 1.51GHz by default, here controlled automatically by built-in O/C Daemon. In addition to this speed boost, you'll find that there's only speed boosts and power optimizations across the board: that means your device will look and feel exactly the same, it'll just be BETTER!

Galaxy S II gets root-friendly insecure boot ROM

The 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.

But it does give users a chance to poke around the neighborhood some. Let's take a look ...

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 gets Gingerbread courtesy of Arc

Sony Ericsson may have abandoned Android OS update plans for the XPERIA X10, but that doesn't mean the modding community is done with the smartphone. Over at xda-developers, TripNRaVeR has fashioned nothing less than Android 2.3 Gingerbread for the X10, based on the version running on the XPERIA Arc. So far, the list of what's working far outnumbers what isn't, though the ROM download is currently offline so that sound support can be added in. Still, network, data, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and Sony Ericsson's Timescape all work as expected.

Android 3.0 Honeycomb hits Nexus One in unofficial port

It'll be Thursday before the first official taste of Honeycomb hits the market - in the shape of the Android 3.0 powered Motorola XOOM - but the quest to put the tablet SDK on all manner of other devices continues with the Nexus One. Google's first Nexus phone has been married up with Honeycomb by the skilled tinkerers at xda-developers, rooted and given a quick tweak to make sure the display works in landscape and that the app drawer is functional. Unfortunately, there's a lot more broken than working right now, so you probably don't want this as your everyday OS. Phone, WiFi, the accelerometer, sound, the camera, Bluetooth and 3D acceleration aren't functional, but if you've been wondering how a tablet-centric OS will look on a 3.7-inch display, now's your chance.
