Friday 30th of November 2012 /
A drained battery is a common problem Android users face every day. The more cores your top-of-the-line phone has, the more battery power it consumes.

Best free offline Navigation app? I say NavFree over OsmAnd & Navigator (at least for the USA).

Wednesday 05th of June 2013 /
Google Navigation is great if you have a data connection (or if you download some specific map tiles for offline use) but I wanted to install a free offline GPS navigation app for the rare occasions that I'm somewhere far from a data signal-- and for my spare WiFi-only Android phone. I tried three different free offline Navigation apps, NavFree, OsmAnd, & MapFactor:Navigator.

You just hit the "Upgrade" button and then select which state you want to downl

Friday 05th of July 2013 /
I tried rooting my HTC EVO 4G which is flashed to Cricket using these instructions. Phone is still NOT rooted.Then I saw that someone else wanted to see if it worked, but they introduced another step; namely, AFTER STEP 5 [ Went to the root folder and ran the Drivers.exe program (to install the MYHTC drivers).] I tried this also. Phone STILL NOT ROOTED !Does anyone have a way to Root the HTC EVO 4G running Android 2.3.3 Using an Offline method that does NOT wipe out your data like Revolutionary does? The Unrevoked Method does NOT work for this HTC. OR can offer a solution that does not require me to have the phone re-flashed after its rooted ?
