MyTouch 3G Rooted, Reportedly Sprouting

There was a report a long while back saying that the MyTouch 3G is impossible to hack, but in the words of Adidas “Impossible is nothing.”  Some crazy hackers (the well known Haykuro and dream_kill) set their eyes on the prize and have officially rooted the MyTouch.  Now, this isn’t an easy task, and the 20 step, or so, process makes it seem overly simple (alas, it is not).  Why root, … [read full article]

Donuts Served to the Masses

As the extending dessert list led us to believe, Google and Android has dished out Donut (well technically, they dropped new code for Android Donut).  Some people over at XDA Developers are reporting that Donut will be stuffed with system-wide multitouch, universal search, text to speech, automated backups, a new camera app, and somehow (supposedly) better performance (sounds yummy).  There also seems to be some CDMA support (for those lucky Sprint and possibly Verizon customers).  The … [read full article]

Android just seems to get sweeter and sweeter with every update, and we now know the names of the next three.  Google will be dishing out healthy servings of Donut, Eclair and Flan sometime this year.  I don’t know about you, but I’m wondering what dessert they pick when they reach “x” (in case you missed it, the updates are named alphabetically and are based off desserts).  Not much has been said about the new updates … [read full article]
