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.

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!

Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich will be available in January for hacked devices

Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich will be available in January for hacked devices

If you're unaware of the the term CyanogenMod 9, you'll be more than a little bit surprised that the most well-trafficked hack for Android will be bringing Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to a whole barrage of smartphones in the first month of 2012. What the team at CyanogenMod do is manufacture and develop a ROM, essentially the clothing and innards of in this case an Android device, allowing users who are daring enough to hack their smartphones or tablets to add their customizations for free. What they've done is to create not some flashy wild interpretation of Android that'll blow your socks off, no, instead they've taken Android and tweaked it to a more perfect state - and come January 2012, we're going to be tasting Ice Cream Sandwich.

HP TouchPad gets CyanogenMod Android first boot [Video]

HP TouchPad gets CyanogenMod Android first boot [Video]

HP's $100 fire sale of the TouchPad led to the webOS slate dropping into the hands of several developers, not least the CyanogenMod team, and they've been hard at work getting their customized version of Android running on the tablet. Already there's a video demo (which you can see after the cut) of Android booting on the TouchPad, and the team says it's hoping to release a multiboot ROM which will allow the users to choose between webOS, CyanogenMod and potentially other platforms too.

Cyanogen Hired by Samsung, Will Continue Work on CyanogenMod for Android

Hardware company Samsung today has been revealed to have acquired one of the single most notorious names in Android modification, that being Steve Kondik, aka "Cyanogen" of CyanogenMod 7.

How exactly this will affect how Samsung will operate is not yet known - the next most important question, about what's going to happen to CyanogenMod now that Cyanogen himself is working for Samsung, we've got a bit more insight on that side of the situation.

Behold, the day has come when the great one, mister Steve Jobs himself, will be releasing an official biography of his whole entire life. This book will be called "iSteve: The Book of Jobs," and will be blasting out on shelves (we're assuming it'll be printed on paper too,) inside 2012. Between that and Photoshop integration famous art software into the iPad, I think we're pretty much set for news today. Oh you'd like a whole lot more?
