Virtuous Widgets

Its always a good thing to see, when a XDA group branch out into mainstream releases. I have always been one to avoid custom lock screen apps, as they are affected by the phones performance and can lag or not work. The app is very simple to set up, you simply select the lock screen from the long Sense list and then hit Settings.

ARHD 9.1 for the One X

            As soon as most people root a device they jump right in and go with a Cyanogen or a AOKP ROM for their phone. This can be for many reasons; to get rid of the system apps they dont want, to gain more features or to have a crisp version of Android.
