Motorola XOOM Unlocked for Flashing by TheFredElement

First of all, we must do the customary compliment on the username. There clearly isn't much better an element than the Fred element. Then, let's have at it- unlocking the Motorola XOOM like we said you could, truthfully quite the easy task. They didn't make this machine to stop you from doing so, but doing so will VOID your warranty. Keep that in mind. Another good thing to keep in mind is that the following method will ERASE your tablet.

Atrix bootloader gets locked down, no custom ROMs

The back and forth between Motorola and XDA Developers has undergone a new chapter as the bootloader for the Atrix 4G phone has been locked down to prevent any installation of custom ROMs. That means that for now, there's no way to remove MotoBlur, or add any custom work to the phone. When it comes to adding custom ROMS Angry users already know the score target="_blank" via Twitter: "@tdcrooks if you want to do custom roms, then buy elsewhere, we’ll continue with our strategy that is working thanks."

Froyo for Motorola Milestone XT720 Today

Everything you know about updates is wrong! It turns out that this lovely bit of device we all call the Milestone will today be getting Android 2.2 Froyo, an update that Motorola themselves said would never again be updated as far as the mobile OS goes. Of course, this version of Froyo hasn't come from Motorola, it's come from an XDA hacker by the name of Dexter_nib, a ROM for you all to get your tasty treats on.

Gingerbread Ported to Motorola Milestone

So you've still got a Motorola Milestone lying around, yes? How would you like to upgrade to a much nicer phone without having to toss even a dollar out of your billfold? You can right now if you hang a left over to the thread on XDA Developers made by edgardastro, an avid developer of hacked items. This brand new ROM of Android 2.3 Gingerbread that edgardastro has baked up is based on AOSP, and there is still quite a bit of development going on, so don't expect a perfect build quite yet.

NOOKcolor Receives Android 3.0 Honeycomb

Ever since we first laid eyes upon NOOKcolor, we knew it'd perform well for the world - once it was rooted, of course. That was a few weeks ago. A couple days ago, an SDK of Android 3.0 Honeycomb was released. Today Honeycomb has been ported to NOOKcolor. What a wonderful system we've got here.

Samsung Says They’re NOT Charging Carriers for Froyo Android Update

If you'll take a look back at this post: Galaxy S No-Froyo Explained by Samsung Update Fees? you'll know what the heck is going on here. In reply to that post, a post in which an unnamed fellow posting anonymously in hopes of not being identified let loose a torrent of possible facts about Samsung, including the idea that they're charging carriers for pushing Android updates, Samsung says no way!

Meizu M9 (iPhone Clone) ROM ported to HTC EVO 4G

It's come to my attention that quite a few people didn't quite know what the Meizu M9 was, first of all, so lemme quick explain it. It's a Chinese phone that's basically a clone of the iPhone, but made with an Android OS. Simple, right? Here's where it gets weird. Now that clone has been re-cloned (at least its insides) into a ROM and has been ported to the HTC EVO 4G. Why would someone do that? Because they COULD do that, that's why.
