Blog

I thought a good thing would be to make a blog, since twitter has a 150 character limit on a tweet, and on XDA I have to be kind of ontopic. Here I will post all my progress in real time, as well as on twitter, and also Android and HTC roumors, news that may interest you as HTC Hero + VanillaEclair fans.

As I said before, you can still follow me @Twitter or XDA-Developers.

That being said, let the show begin 😉
