Samsung Galaxy S4 on Verizon

Samsung Galaxy S4 on Verizon

It’s finally time for an upgrade from my old Droid Bionic. Locked boot-loaders, delayed updates, etc. are hopefully a thing of the past (although the Galaxy S4 also has a locked boot-loader for now). I’ve also not owned a Samsung device since the smartphone revolution began. So, I’m pretty excited to get the phone that’s sold over 10 Million units in the first month after release. So, we’ll get right to the...

SkyTex SkyTab Gemini

SkyTex SkyTab Gemini

I received the brand new SkyTex SkyTab Gemini 7″ Tablet the other day. At first glance, a very solid feeling (almost heavy) tablet. The Gemini comes with ICS 4.0.3 installed and has an unlocked boot.img so rooting isn’t really required. It doesn’t come with GApps for some reason, but they are easy enough to install. My first experiences with the tablet are that it is sluggish and the graphics are poor. I also have some...

Droid Bionic Gets Close to ICS Release with 6.7.230 Leak

Droid Bionic Gets Close to ICS Release with 6.7.230 Leak

I have successfully upgraded my Bionic to the latest 6.7.230 ICS leak and I have to say it looks pretty much done. I have enjoyed the leak since the .2233 leak appeared and have been pretty satisfied with the stock ICS Motorola experience. Don’t get me wrong, I must be rooted because I can’t stand not being able to remove the applications (Let’s Play Golf) that I don’t use, but after trying a custom ROM for the...

Breakthrough at last! @Dhacker29 and team have had a major breakthrough. With ICS4BOINIC ALPHA6 Preview, they now have working WiFi, CDMA and BlueTooth.

Ice Cream Sandwich for the Bionic (Alpha, anyway)

Ice Cream Sandwich for the Bionic (Alpha, anyway)

Well, a lot has happened since my last post. Thanks to @DHacker29, we now have ICS4BIONIC Alpha 3 Preview (source here).  Can’t use SD-Card yet, no radios, camera, etc. Just look and feel preview. The Alpha 3 is the first really stable (graphics and force-closes are gone) version. If you want step-by-step instructions for installing this on your Bionic, click read more below. Make sure you use SafeStrap from Hash of Codes here before...

Rumor Mill – Ice Cream Sandwich for Bionic???

Rumor Mill – Ice Cream Sandwich for Bionic???

Well, for our first rumor mill post, I hear that some of our favorite developers are at the stage of booting Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) for the Droid Bionic. I must say, it has me salivating because I own one of these! The only non-native port I’ve seen so far is one for the Samsung Galaxy IIs that seemed to disable all radios, so it had a long way to go to actually be useful. It looked really nice though and had the full...
