ADW Launcher on CM7 Development Playground to test new features

Like we have mentioned a time or two here, the developers over at XDA are always making changes and improving things for our beloved Android phones. Today we have an exciting and simple add-on that makes the ADW Launcher (stock in CM7) even better. It is a development playground that is testing new features to see if they are popular enough to integrate into CM7.

HeLauncher for Android, all home replacement launchers in One

Home replacements for Android have been around since the beginning. The launcher is what launches the main desktop for your device. It's where you rearrange your icons, put your widgets, and everything. There is stock launchers, Home +, with bigger names like Launcher Pro, and ADW EX being some of the more popular ones. These are all great but sometimes switching between them can get cumbersome and irritating. Always having to replace all the icon's and widgets gets old also. We present you with HeLauncher.

Samsung Epic 4G gets Cyanogen Mod

XDA Developers have turned their sites on the Samsung Epic 4G and have released CynogenMod 7 for the Sprint 4G phone. The Gingerbread Mod is still in Alpha release and XDA developers Dameon87, nullghost, and DevinXtreme warn that the Mod is not fully functional. Users who choose to flash the ROM to their Epic 4G are advised that they will likely be able to make calls, send SMS text messages and data via bluetooth and WiFi, but that there are a few other things that aren't working just yet. Users will not be able to use GPS or the Epic's 5MP camera just yet. And hardware acceleration in the UI and in Video is still being worked on so it's out of the mix as well. But hey, it's small price to pay to get rid of TouchWiz, isn't it?

MIUI Developers Weather Beta 1 Free for all

The Android developers better known as MIUI have released a beautiful Weather Widget pack today. Called the Weather Beta 1. It is a nice blend of the Sense UI weather widget, Beautiful Widgets (my personal favorite) and a little iOS all wrapped into one. Although iOS is not cool enough to get widgets, MIUI ROM's do have a certain iOS look to them, and so does the settings for the widget, but that is another story.

Honeycomb Theme for CM7 gets you as close to Honeycomb as possible

Even though Android 3.0 Honeycomb was just released recently, and is a Tablet based OS. It hasn't stopped many of the developers at XDA from porting it to just about as many devices as possible. Here's just a few, Honeycomb port for Nexus One, or the HTC Desire Port, even the all popular EVO got a Honeycomb Port. For some wiping out all of their data and flashing a completely new ROM that may, or may not be fully functioning is out of the question. Luckily for you I have the easiest way to get some Honeycomb. (for CM7 users that is)

Record Calls on your Galaxy S

Like we often talk about, the devs over at XDA Developers are hard at work like they always are. This time XDA member antsm has developed a modification of the Phone.apk that will allow users to record phone calls. This is still very much a work in progress like many things and will only get better with time. He is working on it for the Galaxy S but once it gets working better I'm sure it can be added to many other devices.

HTC Evo gets a port of the Honeycomb SDK

Look what we have here. After many said it could not be done due to some hardware requirements. It looks like those amazing developers we all love over at XDA Developers have done it again. The Honeycomb SDK has now been ported to the HTC Evo. Thanks to the nifty and good work by XDA member spyderdreams, as well as a few others this port is well on it's way. Of course it's only compiled from the Android 3.0 Honeycomb SDK so it is still very much a work in progress. See our photo after the break.
