With the Android 2.3.5 update for the Nexus S 4G up for download on the internet on the servers at Google, users must be flocking onto the download link to get their hands on the update. Considering the update is an official one, it is obvious that you will loose all root access if your device was previously rooted. Chances are, that only users who prefer stock non rooted devices, or users who don’t know much about rooting will get the official update installed on their devices, while more advanced users who prefer a rooted Nexus S 4G, will wait out for a rooted firmware or a rooting method for the 2.3.5 firmware. RootzWiki forum member Pete has just released a rooted, but completely stock Android 2.3.5 ROM for the Nexus S 4G. This was fast for sure. Read More

Just a few days back, CyanogenMod team announced that they will soon begin pushing out the CM7.1 Nightly builds based on Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread for the Samsung Galaxy S II. They have lived up to their word, as the Nightlies have begun showing up on CyanogenMod for download. This is great news for owners of the Galaxy S II since these builds would hopefully and eventually lead to a proper final build for the device, something that the device truly deserves. If you are familiar with CyanogenMod ROMs, you would understand, that Nightly builds are highly experimental and highly suspicable to instability on the device. However, this is not a certain thing and depending on how you handle your device, you may not have much of an issue using it for phone calls or texting etc. If you do, well, it IS a Nightly after all.

The Xperia Arc doesn’t seem to be getting much far in terms of development. Custom ROM’s and kernel are a rarity but there might still be hope thanks to XDA-Developers forum member if2
, who has just released an OC kernel for the Xperia Arc, taking it up to 1.86Ghz
. This kernel is strictly meant for the 3.0.1.A.0.145, 146 or 147 firmware and should not be tried on a firmware other then the three listed. Why overclock? Because we get a higher benchmark score and well, we said it before, we say it again; because we can!
