[How-to] Revert Your Captivate To Stock with Odin3 “One-Click”!

So, you got yourself a shiny new AT&T Captivate.  Great, fantastic device; SuperAMOLED, Hummingbird, blah blah.  As any new Android user, you hop on the interwebs and get to Googling.  Slowly, over time, the inevitable happens; you stumble onto xda-developers.com.  You see the light.  Within hours, you’re on your third rom, the thirst for speed clouds your judgement.  Life is great, your device is flying, multitasking with gusto.  It’s at this point the tech Gods decide to rain on your parade, or, more precisely, your Captivate.  The speaker is dead, the rain markers are clear, time for insurance.  But wait!  You’re running CFW.  They’ll never replace a device that has so blatantly been modified.  In comes Odin3.  With just “one-click” (really a few more than that), you’ll have your Captivate SGS back to factory specifications with none the wiser (it’ll also help in ‘bricked’ devices).  Hit the link for directions and downloads!

Devs working on a webOS port to HTC Hero

In what might be one of the best ports ever attempted, the crew over at XDA-Dev forum are working on porting HP-Palm’s webOS to the HTC Hero. It is not surprising to see this port take place, what is surprising, is why did it take this long with all of the great hardware on the market today? I for one cannot wait to take this puppy for a test drive. If they make this a successful port/build, I might have a to put in a request for a dual-booting webOS/Android HTC EVO4G based build. Maybe HP will now hear the cries of webOS fans all over the world and give us a 4.3″ 1.2 Ghz monster with some serious ROM and RAM.

Super Mario live wallpaper makes anyone envy this platform

Whether you hate, love, despise, or are in a happy middle when it comes to Android, there is no denying just how cool this is. The developer Pikipirs has developed his second application and its a doozy. This new app he developed is a live wallpaper and it is the coolest live wallpaper ever. Super Mario! There is nothing in the world cooler than seeing a pre-recorded Mario running through levels in the background of your phone all day long. The live wallpaper has some settings to customize FPS, behavior, and difficulty of the levels. All you have to do is use your phone like normal and gush at the fact that Mario is living through your phones wallpaper. I guarantee no matter who you show this too, they will inevitably be impressed. See it in action and get it for yourself after the break!

HTC EVO 4G loses 30fps video limit; gets 802.11n WiFi

Oh EVO. How you make me so happy. Not only are you big and beautiful but you keep the devs busy. HTC shipped the EVO 4G with a cap on the graphic output. Now devs decided to take things into their own hands and uncap that little snafu. The guys at xda-developers decided to get their coding mitts on and pump out the needed lines to remove this limit.

Also, HTC didn’t allow 802.11n WiFi when the EVO 4G was shipped. Again, xda-developers decided to give this puppy the needed code to enable EVO to use the band. So if you’re interested in doing both to your EVO, hit the break for videos and links on how to enable both features on your EVO 4G. Read more of this post
