Remember Jeff Sharkey’s screen tool that allowed you to turn off the sub-pixels of specific colours on the Nexus One’s PenTile display, in order to save battery?

XDA-Developers member storm99999 has just published a hack allowing you to apply a different colour calibration profile to your N1’s screen using the very same function. However, rather than switching sub-pixels off completely, this hack changes the voltages and thus the colour balance to suit a particular colour temperature.

No longer should Nexus One owners be jealous of their HTC Desire brethren. We’ve seen High-Def on the N1 before, and thanks to the continued hard work of Charan Singh and Cyanogen over at XDA-Developers, 1280 x 720 recording has finally come to an AOSP version of Froyo 2.2. The update.zip will only work for CyanogenMod versions greater than RC2, but it is expected to be ported to the popular LeoFroyo ROM and, who knows, maybe even the stock version of N1 Froyo in the future.

As with most popular Android phones, a community of developers has cropped up over at xda-developers, who are dedicating their time and leet programming skills to ‘cooking’ and releasing improved ROMs for the EVO 4G.

In this case, developer Avalunchmods has released an overclockable version of Froyo for the EVO 4G, ported from the leaked Nexus One FRF72 release, and it seems like it’s nearly good enough to be a daily driver.

This is a short PSA for those of you who are xda-developers forum fans. I know there are quite a few, considering xda is leading the poll in this post Android Forum Roundup: Where Do You Go For Android Help And Discussion? Vote For Your Favorites.

Xda forum admins have been working on a new skin, to bring an updated look to a relatively mediocre (though so familiar) looking skin.
