  • CyanogenMOD on Android ROCKS !!!

    It’s about a month since I rooted my Desire, installing a new rom instead of the stock HTC android OS. Cyanogen went on without any problems and just works. No dramas, looks & feels cool, totally tweakable & great for a serial fettler like me.

    I absolutely LOVE my phone again!

    Also been playing loads of “DragRacing” game (ad supported) lately, got me hooked far more than I ever thought it would.
    Current lick is a heavily tweaked & tuned Aston Martin One, with 1288bhp and 280HP Nitrous boost, running <>9 sec 1/4 miles and 13.4s 1/2 miles @ 227mph !! 😆

    Yes I know it’s not real, but it’s certainly fun & interesting. Busy earning enough to buy the next level up, either Veyron SS or SSC1, both (in standard trim) are similar power to my AM One, but lighter, and I’m sure with some upgrades they’ll really fly!

    All good fun 😀

  • HTC Desire won’t get OS update :(

    Thanks to the Android News RSS feed I’ve added, just found out that my HTC Desire (non HD) won’t be getting the Gingerbread update we’ve all been waiting for *sobs*

    Apparently not down to lack of power, but lack of onboard memory! Figures as that’s always been a low point of the Desire imho. Damn thing was always slowing up cos ram got low, until I discovered Advanced Task Killer any way. A ‘factory reset’ helped enormously once it was really crappy.

    Still gutted I won’t get the update though, stuck with this phone for another year yet, unless a HD appears locally at a fair price anyway.
