Now this is what I’ve been waiting for! For all you ROM flashers out there who want to try out a bunch of different ROMs all at once, Android now has a multi ROM boot application available to do just that. The app is called Boot Manager and will allow you to have 5 different ROMs on your device all at once and switch between them with just a simple reboot. This is great for both the flashaholics and developers alike to have multiple builds or different ROM flavors to choose from at will. You’ll have to be rooted of course and it’s highly recommended you read the manual here before you get started. Boot Manager will cost you a slim $2.99, but this should be well worth it for you flashaholics out there. Grab it from our handy apps database here, by the source link, or by the QR code below. Be sure though that your device is supported before you attempt to use this app.
It looks like everyone’s favorite selling tablet, thanks to its ridiculous price drop, is surely going the way of the Nook Color in that no one ever gave it a second glance as a worthy contender in the “cheap but effective as hell” tablet market. The HP TouchPad has certainly come a long way since its first inception as a possible Android powered tablet. We’ve also recently seen the device running the latest version of Gingerbread 2.3.5 thanks to Team TouchDroid’s blood, sweat and tears. However, the real credit goes to the folks over at the CyanogenMod team, as its original code generators.
The CM7 team states that everything is running on the device smoothly with the exception of WiFi. Now we know that’s big, but if you can remain patient, it’s only a matter of time until that issue is resolved as well. Then you’ll have a cheap as hell Android tablet running one of the most respected ROM’s on the platform today. Once the build is final, you should have no problem sporting this little guy as your daily tablet driver. Check out the video after the break of the team’s progress and don’t forget to let us know what you think in the comments below. Were you one of the lucky users able to get your hands on the device for a mere $99 bucks? Read more
HTC has added to their list of devices available on their bootloader unlocking site following Sprint’s EVO 3D becoming unlockable a few weeks ago. Unbranded EVO 3D owners in Europe and those on Rogers in Canada can join the unlocking party. Remember, even though HTC is offering this web based unlocking tool, you’ll be voiding your warranty by using it. If the thought of losing your warranty didn’t make you flinch, then head on over to the HTCDev website and get your unlock on.
Rocking an HTC Flyer, but want some Honeycomb love? Well it’s looking to be close as a full RUU has been leaked with ROMs sure to follow. Note though, this leaked ROM is not meant to be flashed in its entirety as it’s a vary early beta release. This is only recommended for developers at this time. Keep an eye out as we’ll update you as this continues. Check out the source link for all the details.
The DROID Bionic Eye live wallpaper has been pulled, detoxed, and recompiled to make it work on any device running Android 2.1 or above. The wallpaper is interactive and has a couple of options that control when the wallpaper animates:
- When changing home panels
- Every few minutes
- Each time the wallpaper is shown
- Every time the wallpaper is tapped
To Download: DroidBionicEyeLWbyDL.apk | Mirror
To install, download the .apk file to your phone, tap “Install”, then back out to home and set it as your wallpaper. I downloaded, installed, and set the wallpaper on my DROID X2 and it worked with no problems.

If you’re considering picking up a Droid Bionc, but were worried about rooting it, worry no more. The folks over at MyDroidWorld have gotten the Droid 3 exploit to work for the Bionic as well. This is of course great news for future Bionic owners to see this before the device is even released. Stay tuned, as I’m sure easier methods for the faint of heart will be appearing soon. For full details, hit up the source link below. If you’re excited about this let us know!
Apparently there is an update for the DROID 3 that gives GTalk with Video support along with a new radio that might help battery life. What is interesting is that it has been pulled which means it is most likely a test update, so we have no idea if this build will be the final version or not.
XDA member Scottml has listed the changelog:
- BP upgrade for the Radio
- Talk2 for Video
- Boot.img patch
- Recovery.img patch
- Various patches to alot of system files
- And some stupid bloatware patches as well.

You might already be sick of the DROID Bionic, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some new wallpapers.

Hit our source link and enjoy some sweet designs before anyone else does, or you can head to our apps database for the QR code.

Boy, it has been a long wait for Motorola Xoom owners looking to upgrade their device to 4G LTE. When the Xoom was announced in January, the word was that a 4G LTE upgrade would be available in Q2. Thanks to an Android Central reader, an image of a Motorola Xoom rocking 4G LTE has been captured. We are unsure if this is part of the pilot group we talked about last week, but in either case it looks like 4G LTE on the Xoom is almost here. As you can see above the speeds are an impressive 33Mbps down and 10Mbps up (also catch the 4G icon the the bottom right). Hopefully the wait won’t be much longer, so keep your eyes peeled. Who’s been waiting for this upgrade patiently?
