Popular Shipped ROMS website now in suspended animation

shipped-roms

After compiling and posting ROMs for hundreds of smartphones — from HTC, RIM, Motorola, and more — Conflipper is throwing in the towel and no longer updating his popular Shipped ROMS website. The decision is part of a compromise negotiated with HTC following a Cease and Desist letter from the handset manufacturer over these publicly available ROMs. As part of the agreement, Conflipper is permitted to keep all current ROMs on his site but is forbidden to upload any new ones. Rather than go head-to-head with the handset giant, Conflipper announced, in a blog post, that he is begrudgingly accepting this agreement and leaving the PPC community to pursue other interests.

HTC Footprints makes its way into cooked ROMs and Manila2D

HTC Footprints

Courtesy of the folks over at xda-developers, those sporting a variant of the HTC Touch who have a penchant for flashing ROMs can now try out HTC’s new geo-tagging Footprints feature. A new Beta ROM from NFSFAN includes a version of Manila2D with Footprints and is available for Alltel, Bell Mobility, Sprint and Verizon Wireless Touch handsets. If you don’t have a Touch and want to try out HTC Footprints, herg62123 et al has released a new version of the standalone Manila2D – a sweet Iolite version that features a Footprints tab. As always exercise caution when flashing but if you do take the plunge, boast about your success in the comments so we can all be green with envy
