The good people over at the xda-developers not only have developed WP7 themes for Android, but also a new launcher from XDA forum member seraph1024. Perfect for those that like the looks of WP7, but want their Android fix. It seems that it does not work with stock Samsung phones. However, I got the app to work on a rooted Samsung Galaxy S. Just go to the Android Market and search for "Windows Phone Android Lite". There is a paid version too, if you would like to tip your hat to the developer, but as of right now, the applications are exactly the same. Check out a list of features after the break.
XDA Developers has always been the go-to place for all modifications of Android devices, and now, thanks to XDA member mistadman, we now have a specific implementation of Recovery with a "stock look and feel."
I know you all want ice cream, but you'll just have to wait. Everyone on a Epic 4G has what appears to be a test build (better than nothing!) of the Android 2.2 Froyo OS build available to them today on an official tip from Google themselves. Have a peekie at it if you do so dare. [ZIP file] Instructions on what to do with this sweet junk are available via the excellent pack of magicians over at XDA.
Gorgeous! Look at the loveliness that's been brewing in the creation boxes of the conceptual workers working on "Slick UI"! This Slick UI is similar to other apps such as LauncherPro or ADW in that it's a homescreen-replacement launcher made to pretty-up and function-up the homescreen of your Android-based device. It aims to make your whole experience more "silky smooth, functional and highly customizable."
The folks over at XDA Developers are hard at work bringing you XDANROID, a multi-device port dedicated to getting Android running on your favorite HTC devices, and they've got an update for ye. This update shows work done on issues with layout, functionality, the light sensor that brings you the automatic brightness adjustment, and more. Take a peek at the whole change log to see if your favorite grievance has been addressed.
That’s right folks, the EVO can now take advantage of wireless N technologies. Thanks to the great development community the EVO now has this great new feature. Recently, there have been a few complaints that the EVO had problems keeping a strong Wi-Fi connection, hopefully this addition will sure that problem up a bit.
The HTC EVO isn’t out yet and there’s already a few custom ROM’s for it. This time around, Froyo has been customized to run on the EVO. So if you have one now or are picking on up, you can have Android 2.2 loaded a running on your handset.
The Froyo that is floating around may not be the final build but that isn’t stopping Android modders from porting it over to different devices. Yesterday we showed you all 2.2 on an Acer Liquid and today it’s the Desire’s turn. Ahmgsk from the XDA is the mastermind behind this port.
The browser options for Android just are growing all the time. If you don’t like the stock browser or just want a change of pace, hit the market and replace the browser (unlike other unnamed OSX’s). Now you can beta test the upcoming Skyfire browser. The XDA has gotten a hold of this app and has shared it with the rest of us.
Android 2.1 for the Sprint Hero is rumored to be released on April 9th. Why wait when you can have it now (or the official test ROM)? The latest RUU from Sprint has been leaked by a member from the XDA.
