An expandable external storage is really an advantage if you need more storage space on your Android phone or tablet. However, having both internal and external storage can be a problem, as well, since some Android apps are not programmed to read data on external SD cards.  Rather, such apps treat the internal storage as also the external storage; thus, such apps are unable to access the files you’ve stored on your external microSD card. MIUI-based ROMs often exhibit such a limitation.  Some MIUI-based ROMs actually are blind to files (such as music files) on the microSD card, so those…

It’s great if your phone comes with pre-installed applications that you actually use, however most phones such as the Samsung Galaxy S2 Epic 4G Touch come with bloatware. These are applications pre-installed on your device but which you don’t actually (or frequently) use and which you cannot uninstall. The only way around it is through root access. You can opt not to remove such unnecessary applications, however they tend to slow down the performance of your device and consume significant storage and RAM. There is now a way to get rid of them–Calkulin’s Bare ROM Converter, an application developed by…

Galaxy S2 users everywhere were disappointed with Samsung’s recent announcement that the official update for Ice Cream Sandwich will have to be delayed to April. To quell some anxiety, however, an Ice Cream Sandwich leak, firmware XXLPJ, has found its way into the Internet. As it is leaked firmware, bugs are to be expected. Only Galaxy S2 devices with a model number I9100 are compatible with this firmware leak. You can check your device’s model number through “Settings > About Phone.” If your phone does not match the model number, we highly discourage attempting to flash this as it may…

Samsung Nexus S users may just get a chance to try Ice Cream Sandwich with HTC Sense 4.0 on their displays, thanks to XDA Developers senior member swamp goblin. This ROM was ported from the latest HTC Endeavour RUU leak and was rebased from the Sensation port. For comparison, the HTC Endeavour is a quad-core Tegra 3 phone, with a 720p (HD) display, so the ROM may take some work before it can completely function on the Nexus S. The ROM is still in its pre-alpha stage of development, as most parts of this ROM are not yet functional. Though…
