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.

Unlocking is a process wanted by many and dreaded by most. Luckily we have helroz, from XDA, who has developed an application that will unlock your device for you in just a few easy steps that do not require extensive coding. The application will work with Galaxy S devices that shipped with Android 2.1 and has been throughly tested and confirmed working with these phones. In order to run the app, you will need to be both rooted with BusyBox and have an active internet connection. The process is simple, you just follow the 3 step process and watch as the phone will automatically unlock itself.

Windows Phone 7 Launcher On Android

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.

Lite version include:

  • Pin to front page tiles
  • remove from front page
  • uninstall apps
  • dark and lite themes
  • 4 accent colors (Blue, Green, Red and Orange)
  • limited system messages
