Amazon’s Kindle Fire took the tablet market by storm and, soon after launch, became one of the best sold devices in the world. Naturally, we’ve seen several attempts to create Android custom ROMs for this tablet, but many of them were unstable and full of bugs. In general, moders forget a simple fact: the Fire does not pack the power of an Asus Transformer, therefore the ROMs must be light and in sync with Amazon’s philosophy, simplicity. Finally, XDA forum user Hyperrunner got the idea and created our favorite custom ROM for Kindle Fire so far: Simple CM9. Based on Android 4.0 ICS, it has been… Continue to Simple CM9 Custom ROM For Kindle Fire
It’s clear that the Galaxy S3 made a solid impact on the Android smartphone market, bringing a fresh look and an impressive set of technical features. Since its launch, the XDA community has been working hard to bring this ultimate experience to people who don’t own a S3, at least from a software point of view. First, they ported Samsung’s newest “home-made” interface, TouchWiz, on the Galaxy S, Galaxy S2 and on the Galaxy Nexus and lately, on the Sony Xperia Arc (Arc S). Given the fact that it has been proven that it works very well on the former two devices… Continue to Galaxy S3 TouchWiz Launcher For Xperia Arc And Xperia Arc S
Samsung Vibrant has always been in the center of attention when thinking about devices receiving custom ROMs and I think this is because of the similarities it shares with the worldwide known Galaxy S. And as Samsung has not yet released its latest firmware for the above mentioned device, the XDA modders community have rushed to bring the ICS experience to the owners of this popular smartphone. There have been many attempts and today we will focus on the latest one, the RMS ROM, which is based on the Android 4.0.4 IMM76I and a similar custom ROM for the Galaxy S… Continue to Update Samsung Vibrant To ICS 4.0.4, Firmware IMM76I [Custom ROM]
The Galaxy S3 has just launched and one thing is certain, everybody ones one. It has some impressive features, both technical and visual but also it comes with a spicy price. Let’s face it, not all of us will be able to afford one and the XDA community has worked hard in order to offer to us, to the less fortunate, the Galaxy S3 experience on our present devices. Today we are going to talk about ICSGS3, a custom ROM based on the Android Ice Cream Sandwich, built especially for the Galaxy S I9000, which looks similar to the ROM used on Samsung’s… Continue to ICSGS3 - Galaxy S3 ROM For Galaxy S I9000
The Barnes & Noble Nook Color, or the archrival of the famous Amazon Kindle Fire, is without doubt one of the top e-book readers on the market. Some would even consider it a tablet but looking at the competition, I wouldn’t go there. With its TI OMAP 3621 CPU clocked at 800MHz, 512MB of RAM and 8GB of flash storage it has the potential to go into battle against the low end tablets yet it cannot be compared to devices like the new iPad or the Asus Transformer 2.
Face Unlock, aka Face Recognition, is one of the greatest and most desired features brought by the newest Android operating system, Ice Cream Sandwich. By using it, you can unlock your smartphones without remembering complicated patterns, pins or passwords. All you have to do is take a photo of yourself and each time you want to unlock your device, look into the front-facing camera, Android takes care of the rest; it recognizes your face and automatically unlocks the phone. It’s also worth mentioning that some security flaws have been discovered in Face Unlock, like the fact that the device might… Continue to Visidon AppLock - Unlock Apps Using Face Recognition For Android 2.2, 2.3 Or 3.0

Please note this is based on official ROM XWJW4 and can be installed only on a rooted, unlocked Galaxy S I9000.

Galaxy Nexus gets a new official update for ICS 4.0.4, IMM76I, while many other smartphones are still waiting to leave Gingerbread behind. This is normal and in some way expected as Google has made it clear from the beginning that its flagship device will always get the latest firmware way ahead the competition. Some users have already received IMM76I via an OTA update, but for many others the update is still on its way. If you are among the latter group of users, do not panic, you have two options: either wait until you get it automatically (that could take a while) or download… Continue to Android ICS 4.0.4 IMM76I On Galaxy Nexus - Update Tutorial
