Google Now-A Journey From Jelly Bean To Ice Cream Sandwitch

Great news for android fans, a member of XDA developers has figured out the way of upgrading of Google Now from Jelly Bean to Ice Cream Sandwich. For those who don’t know much about Google Now, it’s actually a voice assistant for android devices rival to Apple’s siri.

SmartWidget Keeps Your Apps Handy

In most smartphones, regardless of the operating system they use, there is always a physical or virtual button to bring forth the applications running simultaneously. This feature is called multi-tasking.

But this doesn’t provide the portability of having all your favorite applications in one place on the screen where you can start any of them easily without having to go look for it deep down the folders. In Android devices, however, shortcuts can do this work but what’s the point in having a home screen when it’s all stuffed up with shortcuts?

Modify Your Computer Loading Screen During A Boot

The people over at XDA claim that changing one’s boot animations can be as fun as changing themes, icons, and various other ways of customizing your desktop experience. Although, they admit that modifying boot animations is no easy task.

When you opt to replace that stock Windows loading bar with a customized animation, you may discover that you do not like the new animation and want to flash back to stock, this creates a bit of a time hassle.

HTC Desire With Linux Ubuntu Installed!

If you loved every bit of the HTC Desire, but were hoping for something more ‘desktop-y’, a guy named Bergfex from XDA developers, got the Android phone to boot to Linux Ubuntu, natively. To do the hack, the user must put zip files in specified places (such as the root of one’s SD card and on the desktop). The phone must then be put into bootloader mode. The user is then required to connect his or her phone into a desktop computer and restart it to get the old ROM loading.

So you may be asking, well how does Ubuntu work on a phone, is it buggy?

Flash Player 10.3 Leak, Watch Hulu On Your Tablet

If you’ve ever missed one of your favorite shows, you know you can check out www.hulu.com and hopefully catch what you missed through the episode streaming service. Unfortunately, while Hulu is free on the desktop, tablet owners were not allowed to use the service on mobile devices. Although people can opt to purchase Hulu Plus, who wants to pay $8 a month to watch reruns?

According to XDAdevelopers, the latest Flash Player update (Flash 10.3) exposes a leak in Android, and this time it isn’t a security leak! XDA member bigrushdog has successfully modded his Xoom to allow for Hulu watching on the tablet device.

Verizon’s 4G LTE Is Down Nationwide

Verizon’s 4G LTE network went down late last night, and is still down today. The Verizon 4G LTE outage has occurred through the country and affects the HTC Thunderbolt as well as 4G hotspots. The issue doesn’t affect 3G smartphones on the network, and is limited to 4G capable smartphones. So, if you’ve been holding out on that 4G purchase, yay for you!
