The Kindle Fire Gingerbread tablet is for sure on fire! Earlier we covered a guide on how to root the Kindle Fire and that has paved the way for what may be endless possibilities for the awesome tablet. Google Apps along with the much important Android Market, have now been ported to the tablet, making sure that the device is a huge hit amongst Android fans, and possibly hope to take on the iPad 2 considering the price difference. However, Google Apps and the Android Market can now be installed on the tablet and we’re here to show you just how you can do that! Of course, credits to Jolleyboy

Those of you who just bought the latest Atrix 2 from Motorola, are in luck. The device running Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread has been successfully rooted. This has been made possible thanks to MyDroidWorld forum member p3droid
. Even better the rooting method involved here gives you the single click option without needing you to manually input commands via ADB. While the guides purpose is to prioritize the use of the single click method to root the Atrix 2, but we’ll mention the manual method as well, just in case the single click method fails to work for you.
Since the rumors and videos of Sense 3.5 being leaked on the Internet, HTC’s latest Sense UI has begun finding its way onto HTC Android devices through way of custom ROMs. The Droid Incredible 2 has just recently received an Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread custom ROM with Sense 3.5 thanks to XDA-Developers forum member newtoroot
. Named HTC Bliss Beta
, the ROM in fact is a port of T-Mobiles version of the Sense 3.5, hence called mySense 3.5.
The RCTeam continues to bring us the best of ROMs for our Android devices, and those who don’t know about them, they have been here from the days of the HTC Hero.

There have been news circulating across the Internet about a Gingerbread leak for the Motorola Cliq 2 for quite a while now, including a screenshot. While we could only speculate, if and when that would actually hit the device for mass users, guess what? It is here. Yes, the Gingerbread leak has been released on the Internet and is up for download and installation. Credit for making all of this happen, goes to the Eccentric Vision Development Team which consists of XDA-Developers forum member tattedman
. Please do note, that right now there is no root access available for this firmware, so if that matters to you, you would be better off if you waited out till root access is achieved. Otherwise, the ROM seems to be functioning as it should.
The HTC Incredible may have been superseded by the Incredible 2, but the former still packs a punch, and continues to receive the latest ROMs as they happen. Developers loyal to the Incredible are not about to let the phone go down without giving it a chance of tapping into its true potential. Pure Shooter 3

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.
