AOKP Receives Massive Update, Including Many New Features

AOKP (Android Open Kang Project) is a popular custom ROM for many Android devices. Their first venture into Jelly Bean was great, but it was lacking some of the features the more developed Ice Cream Sandwich builds had. However, they released a huge update with a ton of new features and improvements. A few of the new features are the inclusion of a… Read more

[UPDATE] Kindle Fire HD 7-Inch Already Rooted!

It’s official: The Kindle Fire HD 7″ has been rooted! No details, procedures, or downloads are up yet, but they will soon! It’s just exciting to see some gaining root so fast, on a fairly locked down device. Stay tuned, we will bring you the details as soon as they come! Do this at your own risk. This could be a dangerous procedure, and we are not… Read more

First Custom Theme For Sense 4 Theme Engine Released

Since Sense 3.0 was released, HTC had its own theme engine built in, using a proprietary format. Why they used a proprietary format no one knows, but they did. Luckily, two devs by the name of Flemmard and Diamondback found a way to crack the format. With Sense 3.5, HTC changed the format (again, why is HTC so anti-modding?), but they managed to crack… Read more

How To: Fix Multitasking On The HTC EVO 4G LTE

What HTC has done to Android multitasking with Sense 4.x has been a big controversy. Some people don’t mind it, and some people (like me) despise it. Every app you use closing after 5 seconds of being in the background is a bit ridiculous: answering a text kills off the previously used app, meaning you lose progress in your paused YouTube video or any… Read more

Jelly Bean Ported To OG Moto DROID

The OG DROID is still a popular device, despite being ancient. And people are still developing for it. Here is proof: An almost fully working Jelly Bean build. Everything but the camera seems to be working, and the camera partially works. Otherwise, it seems fine. Of course, there could be other bugs, but they aren’t known yet. This is fantastic news… Read more

HTC Desire HD Get’s Unofficial Ice Cream Sandwich With Sense 3.6, The Promised Update That Never Was

The developers at XDA Developers have delivered what HTC didn’t: An Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.4 ROM with the Sense 3.6 overlay. It’s basically what HTC promised but never delivered. I would like to clarify that HTC could deliver, but they didn’t for a good reason. The update required a partition resizing, meaning user data would be wiped. HTC deemed this… Read more

Root: Google Now Almost Fully Working On Ice Cream Sandwich!

Google Now has essentially been ported to Ice Cream Sandwich ROMs. This is the full, legit search, including the very natural Jelly Bean voice. I have tested it on my Galaxy S II running 4.0.4, and it works quite well most of the time. Sometimes the app can not show anything on screen, no matter what version I use, but in general it works well and… Read more

[Root] Set Up User Profiles In Jelly Bean

There was a lot of hidden code found in Jelly Bean referencing different user accounts. The code wasn’t finished or at all usable to a normal user, all being invisible. Although, with a quick hack, it is actually usable! Now, this procedure requires root, and may be dangerous. None of us are responsible for any possible damages or data loss, so do this… Read more
