Let’s face it, Android can be a bit fragmented at times. But who says we need to rely on carriers to push updates? Android is much more than a closed OS, ran by carriers. Thanks to the developers modifying Android, we can choose who we …
We knew it was only a matter of time for the Galaxy S III to get some official Cyanogenmod love, and here it is: the first official Cyanogenmod 9 builds from Teamhacksung have been rolled out to Samsung’s new flagship. The buglist is noticably short …
We already knew this was coming, but we couldn’t say for sure when the first unlock solution would go online and which handsets would be supported. The Motorola Droid RAZR is the first Motorola handset to offer a bootloader unlock solution but if you live …
Ice Cream Sandwich may not yet be available on any device other than the not yet released Galaxy Nexus, but the oldest of the Nexus family has already received an taste of Google’s new dessert thanks to an SDK port. It doesn’t run perfect, but …
WebOS may be discontinued but the hardware it’s running on, the HP Touchpad, is still very, very alive. The Cyanogenmod team has released an alpha of Cyanogenmod 7 for the Touchpad. As for bugs — it’s an alpha so there will be a lot of …
It’s kind of become a rite of passage for new Android devices to get their own custom ROMs. Every major Android tablet and phone has gone through it, and it looks as though the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is joining the club. This comes just 9 days after the Moto Xoom got its own custom ROM.
Well it’s been quite a wait, but finally the first custom ROM for the Motorola Xoom is available. You’ll have to head over at the XDA developers forum to grab it – thank member bigrushdog while you’re there. Team Tiamat (the same guys that brought …

Sunday, April 10th marked the day of the Stable release of CyanogenMod v7.0.0. This release has made a huge splash in the Android community already. According to the CyanogenMod statistics page there are over 100k unique installs across the many devices supported by CM7. The …

No, you can’t have Gingerbread on your Xperia X10 yet and it’ll probably take a long time before you can, but you can apply a custom ROM with a Gingerbread theme. I’ve made a mod of the AOSP ROM we’ve talked about earlier to make it look like Gingerbread.
Rejoice folks, you don’t have to rely on vague ROM makers anymore, because a couple of months ago, CyanogenMod has added the HTC Legend to their officially supported devices list.
This might be the perfect moments to sit down and sigh: “Finally…” After almost half a year of ridiculing Sony Ericsson for its hard-to-crack bootloader and speculating and dreaming about custom ROMs for the Xperia X10, it’s finally here. Some heroes on XDA have managed …
