HTC EVO Shift 4G Permaroot by bcnice20 and Pals

The smaller brother of the EVO crew, HTC EVO Shift 4G, has just received its first permaroot. This is thanks to the crew over at XDA Developers Forums, in particular bcnice20 and some dev friends of his or hers (Joeykrim, Toastcfh, scotty2, Guhl, preludedrew, and riggsandroid and Cosine83.) This means that you'll be able to go wild and crazy with your device, hacking it all to pieces and putting it back together again as you see fit.

ShootMe Screenshot App on Android – Root or No Root?

We've been really pumped up and excited about having found ShootMe since we first happened upon it in early December 2010. We added it to SlashApps of course, then noting the fact that although the app said that all users attempting to utilize the app would have to be rooted in order to have it work, it worked for all of our non-rooted phones just fine. Now we've got a bit of a dilemma. There's a brand new version that not only takes screenshots, it captures screen video as well, recording your every move in video form. That's not the problem though, the problem is that we've had many conflicting reports in the forums of it either working or NOT working on non-rooted phones.

NOOKcolor Overclocked to 950Mhz STABLE, 1Ghz CHOKIN

Behold the awesome saga of NOOKcolor. When I first set eyes on the ol' NC first, (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.

Changing LCD Density on a Rooted Samsung Galaxy Tab (Make More Room!)

The brilliant Jenn K. Lee of Pocketables has whipped up several methods for you to make the most of your Samsung Galaxy Tab, in a very visual way. The Samsung Galaxy Tab has, as you know, a 7-inch, 1024 x 600 resolution screen, but it employs a defaul density value of 240. Now, if you're the sort of person who trusts fully in the graphic / industrial designers over in the lab where the Tab was created, then please, feel free to keep it that way. If you're the sort of person who changes the resolution on say, your desktop computer, to as high as it can go, well, then, get to rooting!
