Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet Finally Rooted - Here's How To Do It, And Install ClockworkMod Recovery

Owners of the Lenovo Thinkpad tablet have long been waiting for a way to root their devices... in fact, the situation is so dire that there is a $785 bounty for root. Or was, anyway: Dan Rosenberg has figured out a way to root the device, and Justin Case and utkanos have managed to get ClockworkMod Recovery (CWM) up and running without a hitch. Luckily, both rooting and installing CWM are quite simple (though you do need an SD card to install CWM).

CyanogenMod 9 Music App Officially Released For Download, Coming To Market Soon

All-around awesome guy Andrew Neal has released the result of his project in recent months: a new music app that will be coming soon to CyanogenMod 9. The good news is that you can download it now, before it's merged, and install it on your device. The (pretty major) bad news: it's only available for phones running Ice Cream Sandwich. So unless you've got a Galaxy Nexus, ICS-running Nexus S, or any phone rocking CM9, you're pretty much S.O.L.

Hulu Plus App For Android Hacked To Work On More Devices

Quite a few of us were overly excited when Hulu Plus landed in the Android Market last year, only to be crushed when we realized only a few select devices were compatible. While Hulu has been bringing support to more devices since the release, it's just moving entirely too slow. Many of us are blue in the face from holding our breath while waiting for support, and frankly, I gave up the wait a long time ago.

iZac Becomes The First Android-Powered Bartender – Fun, Ingenious, And Open-Source

You might remember this video, which cropped up earlier this month, showing off an Android-powered contraption that mixed drinks automatically. Well, it would appear that the device, lovingly named iZac, (after a barbot from the popular show Futurama) has made its official debut, mixing real cocktails for patrons at the Creative Sandbox in Sydney.

Right now, iZac can handle dispensing up to six liquids, and the Android interface includes an "I'm Feeling Lucky" option, which ostensibly creates a totally random concoction for those feeling bold.

[App Mod] Krad+ Brings Inverted Colors To The Google+ App

If you've been using the Google+ Android app for any amount of time, then you've probably noticed one thing: there's a lot of white. The majority of the screen - especially on a tablet - is blanketed in with a white backdrop consistently throughout the app. This is, of course, hard on the eyes (especially in a dark room), and can negatively impact battery life on phones with AMOLED displays.

To the rescue comes XDA forum member santiemanuel, offering his own themed mod of the G+ app, simply called Krad+.
