    Today the CyanogenMod team made Release Candidates of CyanogenMod 7 available for the Nexus One, T-Mobile G2, myTouch 4G, and Evo 4G. CM7 is based on the Android 2.3 Gingerbread AOSP source, plus a bunch of tweaks, additions, and improvements. A Release Candidate (RC) is just that, it's a release of the code that could become final if no bugs are found. Generally a CM build will go through two or three RCs before it's finally released. RCs should be usable as your daily driver, and in my experience, there's no reason not to use CM7 RC1 on your phone. There are a few things to keep in mind ...

    If you have a Sprint HTC EVO and you've flashed a custom ROM, you may be having problems with your Wi-Max. The problem may not necessarily be with your custom ROM, it may be due to corrupt or missing keys. If this sounds like a problem you're having and you have root permissions with busybox installed, XDA developer joeykrim may have a solution for you. He's come up with a small app to determine if your RSA keys are still where they're supposed to be. Head over the thread at XDA-Developers and download the .apk if you think this might be the cause of your Wi-Max headaches. Of course, ...

    Plenty of smartphone users buy protective cases for their expensive phones, to spare them from any incidental damage the world may kick up in the phone's direction. Apparently the phones are willing to reciprocate, as one HTC owner found his phone protecting him, deflecting an incoming bullet. John Garber is employed as a valet at an Atlanta night club, where he was working one night when some disgruntled patrons of the club fired shots in the building's direction. One of those bullets passed through Garber's jacket, connecting with the smartphone he kept in his left chest pocket. Instead ...

    There are so many variables at play when it comes to evaluating phone battery life, that it can be extremely difficult to get accurate results. Everything from which apps you're running, to the quality of the network reception you're getting, can influence those results and make extrapolating a useful conclusion all the trickier. Some of the tinkerers over on the XDA-Developers forum wanted to see just what impact changing a phone's kernel can have on its battery life, and found some pretty drastic differences in energy consumption. Looking at the Evo 4G, one user tried running as close as ...

    The HTC EVO 4G is a beautiful phone. CyanogenMod is an awesome custom ROM. What happens when you combine the two? It's nothing short of amazing -- with a hitch: WiMax doesn't work. Thanks to the tireless efforts from the XDA-Developers community there is now an Alpha build of CyanogenMod that includes WiMax support! "Alpha" means there will be bugs, problems, and who knows what kind of other issues, but it's a functional step in the right direction! Head over the to see how to get the ROM and start enjoying WiMax again. Source: XDA-Developers Via: Talk Android

    This is what we wait all year for, friends: the chance to pick the single best phone in all of 2010. Sure, we could break it up by category, by platform, by carrier, by something, but we'd rather pit the Droids against the iPhones against the BlackBerries in a winner-take-all cage match that will crown the one true champion. We thought about including a poll here, but we don't want to limit your choices even one bit; if you think that the Sanyo Zio was the best that the industry had to offer in 2010, by all means, cast your vote in the comments and tell us why you made that pick. A few of ...

    Developers behind the CyanogenMod ROM have reached a milestone, working out how to let 4G-enabled phones establish a WiMAX data connection. Without native WiMAX support in Android, owners of phones like the Epic or Evo 4G who want to run unofficial builds of the operating system have been forced to put up with 3G speeds. The problem is that the code that manages the WiMAX connection is a custom addition to Android applied by the phone's manufacturer. Without the source to that add-on, developers couldn't easily access the high-speed network when running their ROM of choice. There's no new ...

    The port of Android 2.3 Gingerbread over to an HTC HD2 has opened the floodgates for other hacked Gingerbread ROMs, with versions now available for the HTC Droid Eris, Evo, Wildfire, and Hero. These releases are each home to their own assortment of bugs and hacked-together workarounds, so don't expect a sleek Nexus S experience out of Gingerbread on any of them. On the Wildfire port, for instance, only the most basic input and phone functionality is implemented. Most everything else, from the camera, to wireless data, to Bluetooth, is broken. Some of these release are more functional than ...

    HTC has just received Wi-Fi Alliance certification for a device with model number PG05100, which may end up being in the same product line as the rumored HTC Knight (pictured), an allegedly Froyo-powered QWERTY slider whose model number is said to be the similar PG06100. Like the Knight, the PG05100 supports 802.11 b/g/n, but unlike the former device -- which we know from FCC documents to be WiMax-capable, making a Sprint appearance likely -- this newest handset both adds in WMM Power Save features and has been CWG-RF-certified for specific cellular/Wi-Fi convergence requirements. It has ...

    Remember the mysterious "third tab" in the Android Market app as seen in the Gingerbread video from earlier today? Turns out it's a new recommended-app feature that is rolling out right now, in advance of Gingerbread. Users of various Android 2.2 devices have been reporting that the Android Market app has automatically updated itself on their phones to include the new tab. Exactly what it's labeled varies from device to device; sometimes it's "Similar", sometimes "Related". The new tab apparently offers suggestions of other apps you may be interested in, based on how they relate to the one ...

    While the wait for a white iPhone 4 drags on, Sprint customers have had their headlining smartphone, HTC's EVO 4G, available in white since Best Buy started carrying the alternate color this past July. Though initially exclusive to the store, Sprint has now announced that white EVOs are available through other retailers, as well as the carrier itself. Originally, the wider availability of the white EVO was supposed to kick in sometime during September, with the Best Buy exclusivity expiring in August. While that arrangement ending up lasting longer than expected, the reigns are now off and ...

    HTC's EVO 4G for Sprint was a huge success and it would normally feed brains in HTC's R&D and Marketing departments in the direction of a follow up, even though no indications so far referring to this aspect were seen or heard. Looks like HTC has filed for trademark to what seems to be an HTC EVO 4G refresh. The filing refers to "HTC EVO Shift 4G" coming just after a similar trademark filing for "HTC EVO 4G Shift" -- which could indicate that a final naming for the handset is not set out yet. This could mean many things but most importantly it could mean that not only HTC is preparing a ...

    Android handsets were rated to be the best smartphones on each of the four major US carriers in Consumer Reports' latest evaluation. Out of the 41 models reviewed by the publication, four stood out as tops: the Motorola Droid X on Verizon, Samsung Vibrant on T-Mobile, HTC EVO 4G on Sprint, and Samsung Captivate on AT&T. Notably, Verizon's Motorola Droid 2 scored nearly as well as the top finishers, half of which are Samsung Galaxy S variants. In fact, 11 of the 20 phones recommended by CR are Android-powered, with BlackBerry holding down three spots, both Windows Mobile 6.5 and webOS two ...
