If you are new to using ROMs, make sure to follow the instructions carefully, so you don't brick your phone.

The moment you, MyTouch 3G and G1 users, have been waiting for is here! Only minutes ago Cyanogen announced the availability of CyanogenMod 5.0.7 ROM (v. Test1) which brings Android 2.1 to MT3G and G1:

Early Android adopters will soon be able to use Android 2.1 on the G1 and MyTouch 3G thanks to Cyanogen, with the release of CyanogenMod 5.0.7.
The latest version of the ROM should be available to users in no time at all, with a public beta arriving at some point today according to Cyanogen’s tweet:
Some compromises may need to be made to allow Android 2.1 to fit on the G1 and MyTouch 3G due to limited available space on the devices - in fact, this is what is causing the delay before the release is live. Read More
Details are being kept internally between team members right now but what we do know is that the CyanogenMod has been ported onto an iPhone 3GS.
Everyone is pretty tight lipped for now but this seems so far to be legitimate, as one of the team members has confirmed the port is working via twitter.
It was only a few days ago when reports surfaced of the Android OS having been ported onto the iPhone 2G which was crazy enough to hear but now the advent of CyanogenMod on the 3GS is almost downright insane. Read More
A few moments ago, Cyanogen announced version 5.0.6 of his ROM for HTC Nexus One and Motorola Droid. This release contains a whole plethora of bug fixes and enhancements for the Nexus One and a few for the Droid.
The release follows the drama with Cyanogen and the Ultimate Droid ROM creator The BlackDroid, which you can read about here and here, which explains the note at the bottom of Cyanogen's announcement that reads
"PS: Expect Ultimate Droid v11 soon!
If you were following the news at all yesterday regarding anything to do with ROMs and the Android dev community, then you might have heard or read about what has been going on between Cyanogen and DroidForums.net (and The BlackAndroid who developed the Ultimate Droid ROM).
In short, Cyanogen, a well respected, if not the most respected, Android ROM developer, called out another developer by the name of The BlackAndroid for ripping part of his code without giving credit. Read More
Today seems to be the day of drama in the wonderful Android world that we live in. It’s no secret that people rip apps off the Android market and post them elsewhere for free. It’s also no surprise that with Open Source material, people base their apps/Roms off others' work and with that, you always give credit where credit is due.
However, a certain someone, named The BlackAndroid, over at DroidForums, would rather take people’s work, mod it and call it his own. Read More
Android's storage management has steadily improved over the last few years, with a storage manager added in Marshmallow and adoptable SD cards as well. The next small, iterative improvement arrives in Android 7.1 Nougat, with System now separated out into its own entry in the storage management screen.
This means that, when viewing the storage that has been used, it will now show System storage and how much has been taken up by the System - on my 6P running 7.1, System takes up 4.57GB. On my Wileyfox Spark, which runs Marshmallow (albeit Cyanogen OS, but still) ... I can't tell because there's no System entry. Read More
There are numerous video players available on the Play Store, each with its own strengths. MX Player, one of the more popular ones, has just received an update that adds a few great features, such as multi-window support for devices running Android 7.0 Nougat, a new decoder, and screen-off playback.

Huawei’s budget sub-brand Honor is the subject of increasing chatter in phone geek circles of late. In January, the Honor 5X introduced the “company” (insofar as they operate as a separate business unit) to a Western audience with a very affordable, metal-bodied phone.
The device, though, seemed to land on deaf ears, at least among enthusiasts. I can’t speak to how the Honor 5X did in US sales channels, but initial launch buzz quickly wore off once reviews went to press, and the phone itself really was pretty mediocre in retrospect. Its dazzle, its allure really came from looking the part of a $300-400 phone while costing much less. Read More
