Fed up of charging your mobile battery and your mobile batterybecomes half even before using it? Now increase Battery life in simple ways.

Being an Android Geek, my mobile battery ends up soon. When I have to travel a long way, my battery ends up in middle. This happens because Google Android and display eats up most of thebattery. Also, using battery too much may reduce the life ofbattery.

Then, finally I found a solution.It is very simple and worked with many of my friends. We can achieve higher battery life by Calibrating Mobile Battery in 2 easy ways. I suggest the first one as it is less time consuming but requires rooting and if you are an experienced ROM flasher you wont find this much difficult and the second doesn’t requires any rooting.

Development for AT&T Samsung Galaxy S2 kicked off as soon as the phone’s kernel source was made available. And the results so far have been awesome! Developers have not only managed to cook a custom stock kernel with root, but there are couple of popular ROM ports available for flashing.

Flashing this System Image will not only give you root access on your phone, but will also unbrick your device if your flashed a bad PIT file earlier.

XXLPQ — Update Galaxy S2 to Android 4.0 Official Firmware Manually

Well, here it comes — the first official Android 4.0 update from Samsung, labeled as XXLPQ. Galaxy S2 users in Baltic, Poland, Hungary and other Nordic countries can use the Samsung’s PC software Kies to update their phone to Android 4.0.

But those of us who are apparently not from that area of earth, but are as much eager as one could be about official Ice Cream Sandwich for Galaxy S2, well, there is the Odin software to install the XXLPQ manually. It’s pretty easy and if you’ve been keeping up with us, you may have already done it countless times — XXKP8, XXLPH, XXLPJ, etc. But this time around, we flash the official Ice Cream Sandwich update for Galaxy S2 — XXLPQ.

Well, there are some features missing from the earlier leaks, XXLPH and XXLPJ, like there is no 3d anim effect in drawer and while swiping home screens, which was present in XXLPH and XXLPJ, but other than that, XXLPQ is cool — no touch lags and it’s pretty fast and fully working rom, with TouchWiz 4 UI of course, hate it or not.

So, let’s see how to upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich with XXLPQ, the official Android 4.0 firmware via Kies.

Compatibility

This firmware and the guide below is compatible only and only with Galaxy S2, model number i9100. It’s not compatible with any other device, including US variants of S2, the Epic 4G Touch, T-mobile Galaxy S2 and AT&T Galaxy S2 along with Skyrocket. Check your device’s model number in Settings » About phone.

Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) Rom for Wildfire in Development

We know there are many HTC Wildfire users who are looking up to internet in the hope of one cool Android 4.0 custom rom port for them, too. Wildfire packs in only 600MHz of processing power, btw, and even Google has expressed its inability to bring the Ice Cream Sandwich love to its 1GHz processor powered Nexus One, so it would be nothing less than a work of genius if somebody does port it over to Wildfire, or any phone powered by less than 1Ghz processor.

Anyway, kaassaus at XDA took the Droid Eris’ Android 4.0 ROM and replaced its boot.img with the Wildfire’s CM7’s boot.img while also editing the build.prop as required, to get the Android 4.0 booting on Wildfire. Well, it’s good to hear that an ICS Rom has booted, but that’s that — the touchscreen needs a fix (it currently shows a mouse pointer) and everything else needs to be done.

No doubt, it’s gonna take huge time, if this dream ever becomes a reality. Continue reading
