DROID DOES Android 2.1 on video
DROID DOES Android 2.1 on video
It probably comes as no surprise that someone would port over the tasty Flan goodness of Android 2.1 to the Motorola DROID; after all, the DROID DOES everything and with the Nexus One powered by the 2.1 version of Google's open source OS, well, why not give it a whirl on Verizon's flagship device. Of course, in exchange for being the first on your block with a DROID on Android 2.1, you do lose some functionality like the Drooooiiiiiid sound when you start up the device. And because 2.1 is not yet supported by the DROID, well, the whole thing is full of bugs at the moment. Porting over Android 2.1 to your handset is something that has plenty of risks involved. You can void your warranty, brick your phone or even take 2 years off the Mayan calendar. Check out the sourcelink for all of the gruesome warnings.

I am a little more interested in performance related improvements. Graphics are cute, but that doesn't sell phones.

And it's not even 2.1, it's just the boot animation. No one has gotten the ripped image built into a rom that works on the Droid yet! What crappy reporting. But I guess that's what happens when you scan other sites and regurgitate the crap they put out.

Slow day phone arena? I love reading news normally, but flashy load screen videos aren't really news. They're filler. You used to be cool PA, what happened? =P

Why does everyone here complain so much about phone arena. If you don't like the website why do you keep coming back. There's 100 different websites with mobile news.

I use Wondershare video converter, it could between all popular Video formats ( AVI, MKV, MP4, WMV, FLV, MPEG etc.). I spent ages looking at best Android video converter, tried loads and finally settled on this because it is quick, and most of all its best at batch jobs. Great when I wanted to convert my family guy, DS9 and farscape in one sitting. For Christmas special offer, it's 30% off now. http://www.dvd-ripper-copy.com/guide/video-to-android-phone.html#195
