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
Android was created to be a mobile operating system open for third party developing, allowing everyone who’s got the skills or talent to create useful apps or mess with the system settings. This means that you can buy any Android device and find at least a couple of custom ROMs created by users who enjoy modifying stock versions of the operating system, to create ones with all kind of new built-in features.
While some developers focus on bringing new features to operating system, others like to develop tools or hack kits that let you root or flash ROMs to… Continue to All-In-One Kit To Root & Flash ROM For HTC One X / One S
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.
From a software point of view, the above mentioned gadget runs on a customized version… Continue to Root Nook Color Running On 1.4.1 Or 1.4.2 - How To
Just one day before the official presentation event, a photo in which Samsung Galaxy S3 is being showed covers the front pages of many websites on the internet (including ours).

However, many fans are now hoping that this image is nothing but a prototype and has been used by Samsung in order to create a little bit of hysteria over the internet, before the Unpacked 2012 Event.
In another photo, the About menu of the new Galaxy S3… Continue to Samsung Galaxy S3 Leaked Photos And Technical Specs
Read It Later, a very popular iOS app was released some time ago for the Android platform but it failed to gain traction like its Apple iOS counterpart. This happened probably due to its not so great features and pricing, which were not on Android’s user base taste.
Fortunately though, the developers behind Read It Later decided to completely revamp the application and user experience, renaming it to Pocket and making it available for free on Android. Apparently, the reason behind this decision was the fact that users kept saving videos for viewing them later so the app’s name… Continue to Pocket Android App Lets You View Things Later & Offline
