Good News: The Back panel on the Lumia 920/820 Really is Scratchproof

Good News: The Back panel on the Lumia 920/820 Really is Scratchproof

| January 22, 2013 | 20 Replies

One of my greatest issues with the N9/Lumia 800/Lumia 900 was the silver plating on the back that surrounded the camera lens. The fact was that no matter how careful you were with the phone it would end up being scratched in every possible spot; and it honestly hurt to look at. However with the […]

THP never ceases to amaze me. Just when I thought he had out done himself with apkenv, he has brought the Harmattan community Cyclotron. The app (well mod really) takes the swipe to a new level, by allowing the user to swipe diagonally from the status bar to switch between apps. I can’t really do […]

It is not easy for me to say this, and frankly I can’t believe I am. If you follow me on twitter, you would know that I have become furious at my N9 recently. To me, the N9 is one of, if not the most, innovative devices of the last decade. When Marko Athisaari announced […]

Apkenv – Run “some” android apps in Harmattan & Fremantle

| October 22, 2012 | 15 Replies

First we heard that there would be app compatibility layers for Harmattan. Then Nitdroid came along, and like it did on the N900, it gave us a near-complete version of Android to use on our N9/50s. Well, now we have a compatibility layer of sorts, that allows you to run a very small number of […]

Recently got a DC-16 Portable charger, and I must say, it is super cool, and rather funky looking. The DC-16 is a portable charging stick designed to charge mobile phones and devices via Micro-USB connection. It contains a 2200 mAh battery, bigger than any of the batteries on Nokia phones.(The Lumia 920 has a 2000 […]

Video: #N9Hacks: GUI for Multiboot

| September 11, 2012 | 14 Replies

This is something I had been waiting for since the N9 got dual-booting abilities (and then multi-boot). It is still an early version, but the GUI is apparently easily customisable. We may see some amazing and polished dual/multi-boot solutions. I preferred having a boot image for NitDroid, let alone an actual GUI where you can […]

Remember the post I wrote about the various prototypes in production? Well this is the Prototype I was told styled off […]

Review: Nokia Lumia 900 through my MeeGo-loving eyes

It is no secret I love the N9 and MeeGo-Harmattan. It runs such a versatile OS. It may not be the most developed out of the box, but you don’t choose it for that. The possibilities are endless. Enable developer mode, and install a few mods and the device is unmatched (except by the N900). […]

I’ve been using this for the last month thanks to my friend Arie ( @EverythingN9 ). I wanted to bring this to you guys earlier, but the method to install the patch was rather involved for the everyday user. I’ve recently learned that N9 Quick Tweak (N9QT) has this option as part of it’s extensive […]
