Android Wiki Rules
Nothing illegal is permitted to be posted here. Articles are to be written in the third person, and no one user should claim ownership of an article. A somewhat-neutral point of view should be maintained, but since we are not the wikipedia, this isn't crucial. This is a technical wiki - so the most important thing is that the details are technically correct. Anything you download here will be used at your own risk. This is just a central place to find these files, not a proven test ground for them. All downloads were created by a 3rd party and are just hosted here for simplicity.
This wiki can no longer be edited by anonymous users. Due to spam, editing requires registration. That's somewhat of a nuisance, but it's the current reality in the face of spammers.
