Skyraider Athena 1.2 [Sense(less)/CM6]


This is the ROM that I’m currently using. If you have an Incredible, I highly suggest testing it out. It’s rather amazing what the creator has done. Click here to be directed to more information about Skyraider Athena.


Honeycomb…Way Better Than Cereal

So, I watched the Verizon keynote from CES 2011. You know the one, where they demo a Motorola XOOM running Android 3.0 (Honeycomb). It’s hard for me to list all of the things that I loved about what I saw, but there are plenty.


For example, I’m loving the completely redesigned home screen. The 3D effects were quite nice. I’m also loving the enhanced interactive widgets. But most of all, I love the video calling on the nice big screen.


I could bore you with more, but it might be better for you to just watch this:

Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) on the Incredible

It certainly doesn’t take the hackers long to post a new mobile operating system to a smartphone these days as the latest OS out of the Google camp, Android 2.3 Gingerbread is now playing nice on the HTC Droid Incredible.

According to an article over on Engadget by Vlad Savov, the guys over at XDA-developers seem to have an Android 2.3 Gingerbread ROM virtually ready for the Android masses after sorting out a couple of issues and have released a video of the ROM running on the HTC Droid Incredible.

The Android 2.3 Gingerbread running on the HTC Droid Incredible video demo lasts almost five minutes and delivers a nice look at the new ROM. Apparently according to the changelog this version 4 fixes several issues and enables the 8 megapixel camera.

So all you need to do now is head on down, click the play button and check out Android 2.3 Gingerbread running on the HTC Droid Incredible smartphone and then wonder why it is HTC or Verizon can’t seem to push out an update as quick as these guys…enjoy.

Hey Everyone,

Welcome to the new Android Excedio blog.  In the past I would just add my Android related posts to my Linux blog, but lately I have noticed that some of the thing s I wanted to talk about, were not related to Linux on the Desktop. So in an effort to keep things clean and organized, I’ve created Android Excedio!

Here I will talk more about Android and my experiences with Android. With any luck, there will be something interesting here for you to read about. 🙂

If there are things that relate to both Android and Ubuntu/Linux together, then I will post on both sites. Enjoy! 😀
