ZDbox – All in One Toolbox for Android

I have been using this App since it first turned up on XDA Developers forum.

It has some nice features:

  • APP Lock
  • Battery Info
  • DnD
  • Task Killer
  • APP Manager
  • 2G/3G Traffic

Even though this App is still in beta at the moment it shows a lot of promise to be a very nice all in one toolbox app. I recommend checking it out, as it has made my life little easier.

As they say a picture speaks a 1000 words so I have attached some images of ZDbox 1.2.63 Beta on my HTC Desire running OxygeN 2.0.1

HTC Desire Battery Life

I done a clean install a couple days ago of OxygeN 2.0.1, and to be honest I am getting better battery life than with RC7

Always running is:
3G Wireless
ZDbox – update every 60 sec
Beautiful Widgets – update every hour
System Info Widget – update every 60 sec
SetCPU
NetCounter
Telstra Usage – update every 6 hours

I am sitting on 50% battery usage @ 1 day 8 hours on battery, with above apps etc running and making odd phone calls/sms’s, updates, Facebook, IRC, etc etc.

The only thing I did to prep the battery was fully charge the phone to 100% and rebooted into recovery while still connected to the charger and wiped the battery stats and rebooted the phone and disconnected it from the charger.

Hope this info is some help
enjoy :-)

Slimming Your Android Install

I did this on my HTC Desire running OxygeN 2.0 RC7 ROM, and requires you have a root access to the ROM, and have a knowledge of adb from Android SDK install. As this just a quick how to I am not going to go into how to connect your phone etc, I sure you can Google that info.

Before we start remember to do a NAND backup

YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

Oxygen v2.0 (Gingerbread, totally clean and hack free)

OxygeN 2.0 Finally has been released over the weekend

About Oxygen
Oxygen ROM is an AOSP source built ROM (ie. not a mod of any sense based ROM), it’s minimal, it’s superfast and mostly bugfree.

As Oxygen is not a mod/port of any HTC/CyanogenMod or any other ROM and may not be to everyones liking, it’s minimalistic and basic but I’m open to ideas and suggestions for improving the ROM.

Features
Android v2.3.3 (GRI40) built from AOSP
Linux kernel v2.6.37.1
Minimal Google apps
Superuser
Busybox
Apps2SD

Additional features
Adhoc wifi network support
Advanced power menu with reboot options
Customizable browser user agent
Customizable light settings
Customizable status bar power widget
Download any file type
Full screen browser option

Various other tweaks and features
