Frustrated with the poor battery life of your HTC Desire? Well, we all are. Even the Nexus One users are going through the same.
HTC Desire posted a rather ridiculous (but working) trick long back on how you can boost your HTC Desire’s battery life. The same goes for the HTC Evo too. It’s ridiculous, because it involves charging your phone, then turning it off, then again charging and then turning it on and then again charging – Weird, eh?
Sprint has announced that they will be releasing Android 2.1 Eclair update for Samsung Moment and HTC Hero by the end of this month.
An HTC forum member mentioned that the expected release date for Android 2.1 for HTC Hero could be 26 March, who spoke to HTC executive to troubleshoot his HTC Hero and had a conversation about the release date for the new firmware to fix issues related to HTC Hero.
Yes, you read the title right! You can now use your Android phone as a mouse and keyboard.
RemoteDroid turns your phone into a wireless keyboard and mouse with touchpad, using your own wireless network.
Today I finally received my Google Nexus One! Yes, now you can expect some nice experiments and more Android app reviews.
In my last 12 hours with the phone, I’ve been able to transfer and set up the entire phone as I used to have it on the HTC Hero. Check here for the Nexus One and HTC Hero side-by-side photos.
Before getting my own Google Nexus One, I got another Nexus One from another place which I was able to unbox and compare it with my HTC Hero.
HTC Hero is one of the best smartphones of 2009, but the killer looks of the Nexus One really makes it look ancient. See some photos of both the Android devices kept side by side.
Google Nexus One is the first Android phone that includes live wallpapers. This phone runs on the Android 2.1 OS. HTC Hero, Motorola Droid users will have to wait for the Android 2.1 software update to get the live wallpapers feature.
But the wait for HTC Hero is over. A developer at xda-developers forums has released CKDroid ROM for Hero (GSM version) which is based on Android 2.1 and includes live wallpapers.
If you thought Modaco is done with the Hero ROM updates, then check again. He now has something new in the works called as MoDaCo Custom ROM 3.1 Kitchen for Hero.
Hero Kitchen will allow users to bake (create) their own ROM with the choice of applications they want in it. This would be easier for thsoe who want their ROM to be light and won’t have to use tools to free up space.
In my ongoing ROM exploration, yesterday I found another ROM for the HTC Hero. So far, MoDaCo 3.0 is the only ROM that I have found stable and worth using. Infact, I’m using it as my primary ROM.
A developer at XDA Developers, AychTeeSee, has modified the MoDaCo 3.0 ROM and released a Vanilla version of it. This ROM is a modified version of Paul’s (mostly) without HTC features/bloat.
Yesterday I wrote a tutorial about how you can install Android 2.1 on your HTC Hero. I used Lox’s HERO21 ROM in that tutorial that ROM was slow and quite buggy, so here’s another ROM I tried by Hik@Ri.
This ROM looks much more stable and faster than the previous one I shared. Here’s the tutorial so you can also give it a try.
