  • Droid X Disassembled & More Android 2.2 News

    It was only a matter of time and we all knew it was coming. The Verizon Droid X has been fully disassembled by the people at DroidX.net. Unfortunately, they weren’t able to see the models of some of the chips without unsoldering the metal casings around them. There’s not much information here, but they provide a detailed walkthrough and video of the process in case you’re interested. In other news, according to some sources, we will be seeing Android 2.2 (Froyo) coming to the Motorola Droid in late July and on the Droid X in late August. There was no mention of the Droid 2 though, so its release might be far enough way that it could ship with Froyo.

  • Google Earth Unavailable on Droid After Android 2.1 Update?

    According to reports that have been surfacing from Motorola Droid owners that have received the update to Android 2.1, Google Earth has not been accessible via Android Marketplace. According to DROID owners, while some can access the application on the marketplace at this time, many cannot after receiving the 2.1 update. This is an interesting occurrence, as previous downloaders of the Google Earth app (Either being a device that was update sooner or was manually updated) can no longer see it on the marketplace, but can still run it locally on their device. Google has commented that the problem is only affecting some users and they are working quickly to resolve the situation.

  • Telus Milestone: Rooted.

    The developer team over at alldroid.org has  managed to gain root access to the version of the Motorola Milestone which was recently released by Telus Mobility in Canada.  At first glance this doesn’t seem like news; both the Droid and Milestone were rooted months ago.  The difference is the Telus version was released with the […]

Here’s some information on getting it to work on the Motorola Droid. Here is some more information and a video of it running on a Droid. Many believe this will be the update that will be pushed OTA, but there’s no word on when that might happen.
