Droid Incredible 2 launching April 28th

Droid-Life is reporting that the Droid Incredible 2 is launching on the 28th of this month. The specs for this 3G phone are not too bad with the standard 1Ghz CPU (second gen Snapdragon) and Super LCD screen. If you’re still stuck in non-4G land or in an area that will never get it, this…

Cyanogenmod 7 Nightly adds battery percentage

The latest Cyanogenmod (CM) 7 Nightlies have added a few notable updates to the latest builds. One of the more requested ones (at least for me) is the battery percentage in the status bar.

Flashing kernels should be standard

After being on a Droid X for about month, I felt something missing. Only after I went back to a Droid Incredible today did I realize it was the ability to flash kernels. I happily loaded up KingKlick’s BFS#5. With overclocking speeds built in, interactive governor, loads of speed increments, undervolting and a slew more…

[Warning] Droid Incredible OTA update stops Unrevoked root method

If you are thinking about rooting your Droid Incredible, do not install the latest over the air (OTA) update. Reports are showing it stops the Unrevoked rooting method. You can opt to root first, then install a custom rom that has the OTA update incorporated if you are itching to be updated.

Droid X 2.2 overclocking

It looks like there’s really nothing that a locked bootloader can hold back. A few days ago, a method to overclock the Droid X was released and it works perfectly. This has been tested and it does indeed overclock your Droid X’s CPU. I’m currently running at 1.1Ghz with undervolting. That’s right, not 0nly am…
