Last week, the HTC Desire HD got Sense 3.5 and now the Incredibles are next in line. A 13 man team over at XDA is giving it their all to successfully port Sense 3.5, and as evidenced by the screenshots they’re off to a good start. The team has got the ROM booting and have squashed a ton of bugs over the past couple of days. The team acknowledges the high demand, but with the project having only been unveiled last week, they haven’t got any ETAs, Beta tests, or download links; yet.

Those of you wishing for Android to come to your brand new $99 HP TouchPad will be happy to know that the CyanogenMod team might make your wish come true. The video below shows the 1st boot of CyanogenMod7 on the TouchPad. Don’t go crazy yet, this is strictly Alpha. We have no idea how long it will take till they get something useable, but one thing that will speed up the process is more TouchPads for the development team.

One-Click Root for Stock Gingerbread (Droid X, Droid 3, Droid X2, Cliq and Cliq 2) [From the Forums]

by Harold Williams on
tagged , , , , , , , , , ,

Earlier today we reported XDA forum member dirbliss had successfully rooted the Motorola DROID 3. Now, thanks to Framework43, krazykrivda, and psouza4 over at rootzwiki, we have an uber simple one-click root method for stock Gingerbread. I have tested this out on my Droid X running 4.5.602 and everything went flawlessly. As per P3Droid, this method should work on the Droid 3, Droid X, Droid X2, Cliq and Cliq 2. Here’s how it goes down, but proceed at your own risk:

  • Motorola drivers need to be installed – 32bit here and 64bit here
  • Download and unzip ‘Droid 3 easy root script v7′ to your PC  from here
  • Turn on USB debugging on your phone by going to Settings > Applications > Development > USB debugging(check box)
  • Plug phone into your computer and select “Charge Only” mode from your phone’s notification drop down (pull down your notification bar and tap USB connection to change).
  • Navigate to ‘Droid 3 easy root’ folder you unzipped to your PC and run ‘Click to root your Droid 3.bat’
  • Now just follow the instructions in the command window and unlock the phone after each reboot

No more SBFing back to Froyo on the Droid X! Thanks to everyone that set this up. Make sure to check the source link below for any updates.

WARNING for Droid X: Previously rooted DX owners who took an OTA update and then lost root should proceed with caution. This seems to only work flawlessly on SBF’d DX’s or fully factory stock ones(read: never been rooted). The problem is with getting Superuser installed because it is already on your phone from when you were rooted previously.

Learn How To Develop For Android Quickly With 200 Free Video Tutorials (About 20 Hours) (Video Samples)

by Joe Sirianni on
tagged , , , , , , , ,

If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to develop for the Android operating system, and we know there are tons of you out there, it’s not going to get any easier than this.  If you’re a visual learner like myself, always preferring diagrams, posters and videos, you might want to check this out.  A series of videos have been put together by TheNewBoston and the folks over at mybringback totaling up to about 200 episodes of non stop code action.  Alright, well I wouldn’t quite make it sound that exciting because lets face it, programming is not exciting.  It’s what comes to fruition that’s exciting.  Think you have the next Angry Birds in you?  A systematic play list has been arranged by ChangingTheUnknown for your convenience and offers easy access and learning.  It doesn’t get any easier than this folks.  Being in the form of YouTube videos, you can watch these anywhere, anytime, and most likely on any device.  Convenience is the key, I always say.

It’s difficult these days to find good quality content like this for free.  So, we tip our hats to these cats for putting this together and encourage you to take advantage of the free education.  There are countless videos showing you more code than you’ll know what to do with.  So, if you’re ready to get your learning on and maybe even eventually make some cash with a hit application, you can head on over to the video series to get started.  We can’t see this type of tutorial appealing much to the experienced developer, but if you’re a newbie who wants to start dabbling in code for Android, this should be right down your alley.  And as always, feel free to let us know what you think in the comments below.  Hit the break to check out a few video samples from the tutorial.
