who needs android 2.1 when we have all the apps from it already? (ok that was a pretty ridiculous statement!)
in all seriousness, it’s been nice to have most of the major apps from the nexus one and android 2.1 on our 2.0.1 phones well before we’ve actually received the mysterious and official update from motorola or verizon. (which is still in limbo by the way!)
2.1 clock app:
the newest application to have been ported over is the clock app which can also function with your multimedia docking station. (for those of us with docking stations!) very fun app with a couple of changes that once again, makes it worth installing for everyone.
check out the video…(instructions to follow)
quick tips before installing:
-install the genie news and weather widget from 2.1
-install the flan gallery from 2.1
-if you do not have these installed, there is a chance it won’t function correctly.
steps for installation:
1. go into settings -> applications and check the “unknown sources” box.
2. visit this post from your phone’s browser.
3. tap and download this file onto your phone: DeskClock.apk (alt link)
4. tap on the downloaded application once it has finished.
5. install it and tap “open” when finished.
6. you can also drop in your docking station and choose “clock.”
-if you want weather to show up as fahrenheit you need this version of the genie weather widget.
-unfortunately, this version sucks as a widget and force closes, but will pull up the correct weather if installed.
