A quick thought about the Android system

One of the key differences between the Android system and other smart phone systems is that it is open for modification. That enables the opportunity to change and enhance the smart phone experience based on our preferences. Thus the creation of many versions of Android phones.

The world is becoming connected, in the most basic form of handheld communication and sharing. Phones are becoming like computers, and soon we might use them for all kinds of functions. Management of businesses could even be carried out using a moderately sized handheld computer, with plans and functions being executed from a beach far away. This is where Android technology is taking us, and it’s looking good. 😀

A great guide to root your Android phone

It’s been a year since I purchased my Android phone and since then I always wanted to root my HTC Desire. However, I never managed to actually do it and you can see how long has it been. It’s not about time issues; it’s just that I never bothered at all with it because I was worried about the warranty. After a year, I think it’s time to actually try do it!

Rooting my HTC Hero Android Phone

While HTC, as of today, still hasn’t released the latest stable version (2.3 Gingerbread) for their smartphones (only in the 3rd quarter of this year) I’ve been dependent on its official build updates. The impatience has grown into me and recently I’ve been doing some research about rooting Android phones.

Today, Lifehacker published a great guide (The Always Up-To-Date Guide to Rooting Any Android Phone) with all the explanation and information for us, noobs, to root our phones. The article looks like an awesome introduction to root (and will always be up to date!).

I don’t have anything planned this weekend so I’m going to follow it and try to see if I can manage it. I’ll update the blog with the experience I got from it 🙂
