Lox of the CyanogenMod developer team that unveiled an alpha release of CyanogenMod 6 for the HTC Hero GSM has now added support for CDMA (Sprint) HTC Hero devices.
Instructions and download links below, courtesy of Lox on the CyanogenMod forums:
- First time flashing CM to your Hero (or coming from another ROM)?
1. Unlock your device and install Amon_RA's recovery image
2. Do a Nandroid backup!
3. Update your radio if necessary
During Google I/O, Google announced Google TV. Yesterday, the Logitech Revue – the first Google TV box – passed FCC approval, and as usual, the FCC was kind enough to provide some pictures of the unit.
The unit sports some pretty decent specs:
- Android 2.1
- 1.2 Ghz Atom CPU
- 4 GB Memory
- 2x HDMI 1.3
- 2x USB
- S/PDIF out
- Ethernet (presumably 10/100/1000)
- IR headers
The Revue plays nice with Logitech Harmony remotes and acts as a WiFi access point for your entertainment devices. Read More
Well, this is pretty exciting. Two ROM developers by the names of Maja and udK over at (where else?) XDA-Devs have ported FroYo to the Desire, and enabled 720p video recording – pretty neat stuff. The ROM (v1.0) isn’t quite ready for mass consumption yet – it’s still in testing (v0.3 is available for now, though). Still, it’s definitely something to look forward to, and we’ll be sure to update everyone once the FroYo/720p ROM is released. Read More
The title says it all: Samsung has sold a whopping 200,000 Galaxy S’ in the first 10 days in South Korea. That may not seem like a lot in comparison to the iPhone 4’s 1.7m in 3 days, but keep in mind that the iPhone 4 launched internationally. South Korea’s population (as of 2009) was just over 50 million people – meaning they’re less than 1/6 the size of the US. Read More
It appears that Android is really hitting its stride, doesn’t it? Seems like we’re writing about a hot new Android phone just about every day. Today, LG has put out a press release to announce some new phones and an Android tablet. Details are scarce, but we do know a few things, including that it looks like they’ll be sporting a pretty slick UI. Other details:
The LG Optimus One will be a budget option. Read More
Though Samsung has already promised the first Android “superphone” with a physical keyboard in the Samsung Epic 4G, some people may still be waiting on HTC – after all, they’ve produced some great keyboard touting Windows Mobile handsets, but as far as high powered Android handsets go, their selection has been a bit anemic. However, it appears that is about to change with some leaked shots and specs of the upcoming HTC Vision. Read More
A few weeks ago, Amzer sent us some sample products to review for the EVO. They included two silicone cases (one red, one black), a Micro HDMI to HDMI cable, and 2 screen protectors (one mirror, one clear).
Amzer is owned by Moftware, parent company of numerous smaller, more specific companies. The company isn’t some dinky accessory maker – they estimate that they sold 250,000 accessories for the EVO alone in the first two weeks after the phones release. Read More
Just like with any rumor, you should take this with a grain of salt… however, unlike some other recent rumors, this one seems fairly plausible. Droid Life is reporting that, according to “reliable sources”, the Android 2.2 update rollout for the Motorola Droid will begin on July 13, just two days before the launch of the Droid X.
When the Droid X was announced, they made it clear that the phone would receive the 2.2 update sometime in late August, while the original Droid would receive the update in late July. Read More
This is an alpha
release, meaning it is likely to be filled with bugs. Just like with any custom ROM, you are installing this at your own risk, and the developers are not responsible for any damage to your phones.
Tired of Nexus One and Droid users gloating their CyanogenMod 6 over you? Well, HTC Hero owners – worry no more. The Alpha version of CM6 (the same version available for said phones) has officially been released for the GSM Hero (this does not include the Sprint Hero). Read More
So, by now, you’ve probably already heard that the Samsung Galaxy S is a beast at gaming – it can produce a staggering 90 million triangles per second compared to the Nexus One’s 22 million. But that is just one spec, and real world tests are what most people care about. Quake 3 has now been ported to both devices, and it acts as a great test of each device's gaming capabilities.
