    I added a few videos to my Sensation, they are in the .avi format and are over 100mb each and I play them using the MX video player from the market. The pictures lag badly and doesn't keep up with the sound, is there any way to get around this?
    The decoder for HTC's are usually crap, I use Vplayer (probably the best imo), but Rock Player is also good.

    Yes, I am aware of that - and I'm using it, but I was just wondering if there was some obvious reason you couldn't use the widget also/instead.

    On a phone or browser? On google chrome use the app store and get the gmail app It looks neat.

    I don't think there is.

    Also Google recently severely restricted outside access to the Gmail app (Launcher Pro can no longer show you the number of new emails on it's icon, for example) so I don't think you'll see a gmail widget unless Google adds one itself.

    Hey guys, how much do you think I could get a Nexus One for? Pre-owned of course! I have had my Hero for just over a year, and today in particular I feel that I should upgrade lol

    I like the trackball and the fact that I can stick with my current favourite dev and my Hero is still in really good condition, so maybe I could make most of my money back

    Thanks in advance!

    Thanks. I found one on the market called MoboPlayer and it's working a lot better.

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/forumdisplay.php?f=1031 - See the threads in here, it happily gives you the tools needed to unlock the bootloader if your device is S-ON.

    EDIT: More specifically: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1186401 - you'll need to S-OFF BEFORE root if not done already.

    EDIT 2: Just be warned about the eMMC chip frying on you - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1225064

    ARrgh I remember having his problem after doing S-off. I fixed it but can't quite remember how . It was something to do with the phone/card being mounted on the computer?
