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.
Well, there isn't much to say about this yet due to the fact that nothing works. The ROM hasn't been uploaded either but the dev from XDA by the name of AngioNicholai has ported the Rachael UI to the Magic.
A member of the xda-developers forum called yrreP claims to have received an email at work that outlines the schedule of the Android 2.1 update to the HTC Hero/T-Mobile G2. Most readers of this article seem to believe that it is true.
The XDAndroid project, for Windows Mobile devices with (W)VGA displays, has progressed to a fully usable port of Android to a Touch Pro 2. Past ports haven't been as successful as this one, there were too many bugs and the build was not user friendly. That's now a thing of the past and maybe now all WinMo phones with a WVGA display will be able to load Android and use it like it was the native OS on the device.
is a method of converting bytecode into native machine code, rather than Android’s Dalvik VM simply interpreting the bytecode. This speeds up apps and overall performance drastically. Cyanogen’s Nexus One build Beta 3 included JIT and has set the top speed on BenchmarkPi; OpenEclair 1.0.1 included JIT and absolutely flew.
