Gravity Home: A Live Wallpaper and Home Launcher in One

We all love the live wallpapers on our Android phones right? They allow us to do cool things like fly through space, play duck hunt, or even float through the clouds right on our phones home screen. Today I have something really unique and quite fun to show you. It's called Gravity Home and it is a live wallpaper and a home replacement launcher like ADW or LP but at the same time. Yup it replaces the home launcher with a live wallpaper and adds in some physics that makes your icons float around, neat huh?

LG G2x Overclocked to 1.5 Ghz, scores almost 4600 in Quadrant

I know we talk about overclocking and benchmarks quite often, but it is a little exciting you have to admit. Seeing what the amazing developers and kernel builders can squeeze out of these devices, all that extra power they can unlock and keep the device stable. Today I have some benchmarks I have done myself this morning on my T-Mobile G2x running at 1.5 Ghz on a EXT4 kernel by Morfic, and I was getting some pretty huge benchmark results.

The gang at XDA has done it again, this time, "CapyChimp" has managed to port the HTC Pyramid Rom to the HTC Desire HD ... and it only took 24 hours. Now granted, with such a slap dash effort to get it ported and out, there's some more work to be done. A LOT of work, in order to iron out the bugs. But it does give users a chance to poke around the neighborhood some. Let's take a look ...

HTC Concept Phone called the New Eden

Today I have a little treat for you all to cap off the day. This is a beautiful and extremely well designed concept phone from an XDA member by the name of Jason Wang. He is not one of the very well known concept designers but I have a feeling after everyone starts to see this latest creation he will be. This is about as clean and elegant as a phone could come.

Android 3.0 Honeycomb gets a Screenshot App

For those that use these kind of apps or have been around lately to notice that we didn't have one. The Motorola Xoom and any Android 3.0 Honeycomb device in general could not take screenshots with an app. There is drocap2, ShootMe and many other screen capture apps for our Android phones and apparently none of them worked on Android 3.0 but now a developer from the XDA forums named ftgg99 has fixed this issue for us. He has developed an app called Screenshot ER.
