Banned Android Apps store being developed by ClockworkMod maker Koush

Banned Android Apps store being developed by ClockworkMod maker Koush

The same fellow that brought you and continues to bring you the most famous ROM handler on the hacked Android circuit ROM Manager, Koushik Dutta, aka Koush, has been developing an app store for the relatively small number of banned Android apps out in the wild today. Included in this sort of rogue appstore will be not only gaming emulators that've been tossed from the official market, but Visual Voicemail apps, one-click rooting apps, and other such gems that have otherwise found themselves on the short end of the banning stick ala Google. Full fledged ROMs will MAYBE be included in this app store as well, and should it take off, a full collection of flash-ready modifications for your already hacked Android device.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 52 2011

Welcome to the last week of the year, and here at SlashGear an odd week since last week we did not have a wrap-up as such. What we're doing this week is checking out our last reviews, our last featured posts, columns, top posts, and the like.

Developers: an Android 2011 Retrospective

Developers: an Android 2011 Retrospective

When we look back at this year, we'll think of it as the year of the birth of the dual-core mobile super chip, the double CPU processor becoming the status quo for a smartphone or tablet running Android, this the single most important thing to those who use the devices as tiny computers while the term "4G" dominates the memories of the masses, but it's developers that mattered most. There's no thinking about Android this year without recognizing that it's still running alongside Apple's iOS, the iPhone, and the iPad 2 as its primary competitors, and as its own user interface changes drastically, its competitors instead tweak functionality inside their already set-in-stone aesthetic. Then there's the battles between manufacturers, carriers, and Android versions too, but none of this existed outside the underground of hackers, developers, and tweakers galore!

LG Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update schedule dropped

LG Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update schedule dropped

The folks at LG have let known today what and when they plan on doing with their active line of smart devices in regards to the newest Google-made mobile operating system Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. What they've got on the books as of today is a "global upgrade schedule" beginning in the second and third quarters of 2012, followed then by a "global roll out." There is a list, of course, which we're hoping LG will follow implicitly, as they promise that they're "taking all possible measure to offer a smooth OS upgrade in a timely manner." On the other hand, they do not that exact start dates very well could vary by market as each country, carrier, and smartphone model have different requirements.

Android ICS Nexus S update out today for employees only

Android ICS Nexus S update out today for employees only

It has begun for those of you working at Google today running a Nexus S, the update to the official Google-distributed Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4.0 build that you've been waiting for all these … days! Word is that the build sent out today to some (not all) Google employees is an early build of Ice Cream Sandwich, so there's certainly some kinks to work out, but this is no 3rd party street nightly build folks, Google sends out the good stuff right away. For those of you waiting at home, you can also get Ice Cream Sandwich right this moment if you wish, but you'll have to do some hacking to get it. Refer back to our post about the Rocket Launcher hidden in the system to see.
