CyanogenMod 4.1.999 with EnochXtra theme

by on Oct.16, 2009, under Android, Technology

I’ve switched back to Cyanogen’s CM 4.1.999 ROM with my favorite theme, EnochXtra. It’s Donut based and extremely fast.

The Hero ROMs were really fun and very nice but this G1 hardware is just a little too sluggish to push it.  Cyanogen has done some amazing work with his ROM and it’s easily the fastet, most stable Donut based ROM.

Cyanogen also has a OTA, or over the air, updater for his ROMs. When he releases a new version, you get a notification and the Updater will download, reboot and flash the ROM by itself. Although the developers over at XDA did most of the work on the updater.

Below are some screen shots of CyanogenMod 4.1.999 with the EnochXtra theme in all of its glory.

My Favorite Hero ROM for Android

by on Oct.15, 2009, under Android, Technology

Check out these screen shots from KiNgxKxROM. I’ve tried all the major Hero ROM’s and this is my favorite. It’s fast, stable and clean.

I think I’ve finally found a Hero ROM stable enough to use full time.

My favorite features about Hero ROM’s are:

  • Twitter/Facebook Integration
  • HTC Widgets
  • Multi-touch Image Gallery
  • Much Better Browser
  • Much slicker looking

Downsides:

  • Sluggish (especially on the G1)
  • No bluetooth (Hardware issues)
  • Based on Android 1.5 (Cyanogen’s 4.1.x is based on 1.6)
