    Let me give you a piece of advice. Stick to opinions and do not nag other people. If Kalpik wants a bloody desire . He will get one when he bloody pleases. Its not like hes borrowing money from you for the damn phone anyway so drop it and give it a rest already.

    If you want to go ahead and make my day. Try nitpicking him once more.

    Froyo looks like a significant upgrade and Google have just announced that they are changing their N1 sales strategy. Never know...India may get lucky so better to wait and watch before sinking that hard earned money.

    Guess Froyo's release is this week?

    What about the application thread?? Any progress??? Even I'm looking for some good apps so creating one would be helpful na :)

    For now I need an alternative for Locale, since the beta stopped working and the paid one is $11. I'm looking at alternative apps to manage my profiles automatically. Any Suggestions!

    Can you suggest any good site to follow android news

    Re: Overclocking CPU

    If you guys have rooted the phone you can try overclocking the CPU. I have done it and phone does feel snappier. Its a simple two step process:

    1) Download latest setcpuxx.zip , unzip and install using any installer.

    Once you have installed setcpu the first screen would look like this (Select your appropriate device):


    [​IMG]

    Magic processor by default has been clocked to 528Mhz:

    [​IMG]


    2) After installing setcpuxx.zip; do this; Copy update.zip into SD card & flash using a recovery ROM (just like you would flash any ROM). Reboot and go to setcpu and refresh the values

    New overclocked values (in my case) will look like this:

    [​IMG]

    Don't forget to check this XDA thread before you start OCing.

    Enjoy! :)

    And I thought the Magic would die out after 2.1 . If 2.2 comes out on Magic Ill be quite happy lol.
    I guess I've been slacking off for some time now. Will get to it as soon as possible .

    It is not a universal app. you need to install the native "update.zip" for your device. I think it exists for Spica too. Though front end application (setcpu.apk) is universal. I had kept phone overclocked for a day and realized that the phone had become very unstable. Too many force closes I had to clock it back to native freq. of 528Mhz :(.

    My guess is Froyo should be available for old Android devices too; devs. are waiting for source code to be released. Rubbing my palm in anticipation :)!

    From Cyanogen's Tweet:

    Inevitable Apple bashing after Froyo's launch. I love it ;).

    How much does N1 cost anna?? Desire looks bland, yet that looks like a good VFM option.

    I'm buying the N1 tomorrow, keeping in mind its gonna be well supported by Google and the hacker community in terms of updates. I enquired 2-3 places and the price seems to be around 28-28.5k.
