Featured: Top 10 Best Custom ROMs, Monthly Power Rankings – April 2013


Friday 19th of April 2013 / androidheadlines.com
There are so many different custom ROMs available out there. So how do you pick out which ones are good enough to be ran on your phone or tablet? That’s where the Custom ROM rankings come into play. Every month we rank the top ten custom ROMs available. Now these aren’t all ROMs available for all devices, but most of these are available for at least 5 devices. Finding ROMs available for every device is pretty hard to do.As always, you probably won’t agree with our rankings, but that’s what the comments down below are for. So feel free to let us know what ROMs you think should or shouldn’t be here.10. EuroskankEuroskank is basically just a kang of CyanogenMod, but they do bring in new features and newer versions of Android quicker than CyanogenMod, which is why they are on the list. For the most part it’s stock Android, with a few cherry picks from CyanogenMod 10.1. And available for a slew of devices, which all downloads can be found on their website.Nexus 4Nexus 7Galaxy S3 (i9300, d2att, d2spr, d2tmo, d2vzw)Galaxy Nexus (Toro, Toroplus, Maguro)Ne

How to Update HTC One X with MIUI v2.5.18


Monday 21st of May 2012 / android.gs
The HTC One X is maybe one of the fewest handsets released on the market that can compete with the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S3 super smartphone, though it can never win this fight. Its performances are indeed high end, the One X being an appealing Android powered device that can easily impress the audience. Anyway, for properly enjoying its capabilities you will have to make some changes into its system. And the best way to do the same is by learning how to get and install a custom ROM on your HTC One X.There are many versions of unofficial updates and custom ROMs available for your phone, but not all are working as it should. Most of them are having major issues and bugs, so before adventuring in applying an update, first check if its features are what you need, or if it’s suitable for your handset. But thanks to those of MIUI we now have a more stable version of the same custom ROM. The latest MIUI v2.5.18 custom ROM firmware can now be safely installed on your HTC One X, this being what I will be showing you during this step by step guide.In the end, you will be able to enjoy the

Need info abt HTC Evo 4G LTE Rooting Process before purchase


Wednesday 04th of July 2012 / forums.androidcentral.com
Hello, I, like so many others am trying to decide between the Samsung Galaxy S3 & the HTC Evo 4G LTE. One thing that I definitely want is to be able to root and flash ROMS on whichever phone I get. I know that root has been achieved on both phones but I'd like thoughts on developer support between the two, and which one (or both) can be set back to an original state where it's not known it was rooted for warranty purposes. I know HTC lets you unlock the bootloader but unless there's a workaround it'll say relocked on the bootloader allowing anyone savvy enough to check that it's been rooted. Wondering if current root versions are S-on, S-off or either with the owner choosing. Or perhaps S-off is a must in order to truly relock the bootloader so it says locked instead of relocked. I also read in my research that you can trip a counter on the S3 the counts how many ROMS have been flashed... Although I also read it's possible to root without tripping the counter but if anything goes wrong, you can't reset the counter. Now, it seems like the S3 would have the most dev support since

Full Screen AVI DVD MKV to Galaxy S3


Wednesday 06th of June 2012 / androidtablets.net
So you picked up a brand new Samsung Galaxy S3 phone, and figured that with such a nice screen, it would be great for watching movies on it. Unfortunately, there are not that many options to actually obtain movies for it. Of course you can watch videos from YouTube, but for new-release movies, you are tied to Google Video’s limited collection, or you have to wait a bit before you can access them through Netflix, which only works when you have an internet connection. Digital Copies you get with some DVDs either do not work, or are streaming-only, movies purchased/rented through Apple iTunes and Amazon also don’t work, so how can you maximize the use of your Samsung Galaxy S3 for movies and TV shows?This guide will show you how you can put your own movies (DVD, AVI, MKV etc) onto your Galaxy S3 so that you can watch them when- and where-ever.eBook versions, ePub, Mobi and PDF, of this guide, with a bit more detail, can be found here: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/170349What do you need:* Your Samsung Galaxy S3. While you don’t need it for the actual process, o

Saturday 22nd of September 2012 / androidcentral.com
The unlockabledeveloper version of the Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3, which just went on sale yesterday, already is on backorder. That means it either was popular as hell, or there weren't all that many available in the first place.Both the 16- and 32-gigabyte versions are no longer available. There's no telling for how long, but the good news is if you just can't wait, the retail version can be hacked open pretty easily.More: Verizon Galaxy S3 forums

iPhone hurdles to get Samsung Galaxy S3 fully fuctional


Sunday 02nd of September 2012 / androidforums.com
I've been an iPhone user since 2008 and nobody could tell me anything when it comes to comparing an android phone and an iPhone. I thought the iPhone was best thing since slice bread and I still do think it's a great phone, but I now realize why so many android fans hate it. You are in a long time commitment when you have an iPhone and you have no flexibility to do any personalizing your iPhone unless you jailbreak it. So I'm just saying, I get it now. Here's a few things I could use help with.1. I have a few movies and that are protected by DRM. I've seen several types of software, but none that were totally free. The free versions have watermarks and they are only a few minutes long. Is there any suggestions so I can get my movies to my Samsung Galaxy S3?2. Also, I have purchased some books, any clue how I might can get those converted over so I can use with the kindle app or some other recommendation.That's all I can come up with for now, buy if you can think of something else that would be helpful from a former iPhone user that's switching to android, please reply. I need all the
