A lot of users have been sending me in messages lately for a guide on how to root a Samsung Galaxy S with Android 2.2.1 Froyo. The one click root method doesn’t work anymore so you have to put in a little more effort to root your phone now.

Download Samsung Galaxy S i9000 firmware
Also remember to back up your data before you do this. Disable any lag fixes. This is best done on a clean installation of the OS so if you can, back up your data and do a factory reset to avoid [...]
Version 3.5 of HTC’s custom Android UX Sense was leaked a few days ago and today, a custom ROM featuring Sense 3.5 – based on Android 2.3.4 “Gingerbread” – has been released which works on the HTC Desire HD.

Google recently introduced video and voice chat on their Google Talk app for Android.

HTC has finally launched an official Desire Gingerbread update, which will update the HTC Desire to Android 2.3.3.
There’s a pretty big catch, though. This is not your traditional “over the air” update that’s all nice and easy. Instead, users have to download and install Android 2.3 on the HTC Desire manually.
Also, HTC has issued a lengthy disclaimer alongside the Desire 2.3.3 update, in which it claims this is a slightly hard thing to do and that it is “not for general public use” and that the company “disclaims liability” should anything go wrong.
