    Skype V2.0 Hacked Version; Now Works on More Devices


    Video-chat via Android smartphone became a reality yesterday for many folks running a few Gingerbread powered phones, thanks to Skype's newest version 2.0. Unfortunately, it only worked on a small few devices. Luckily, however, the amazing Android community of developers decided to do something about that. Thanks to the "mad skillz" of Android modder, 0mie, we can now use the video chat features of the new Skype on many more Gingerbread powered devices. Here's a list of the "currently known" usable devices, with the newest ones bolded:
    • Google Nexus S (but not the Nexus S 4G)
    • HTC Desire S
    • Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo
    • Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro
    • HTC Thunderbolt (with Gingerbread only)
    • HTC Sensation
    • HTC EVO 3D
    • Samsung Galaxy S II
    • Motorola Droid Charge

    As far as the reports say, this new hacked version should work on any Gingerbread powered device that also has a front-racing camera. We are witnessing the humble beginnings of true video-chat. Isn't digital technology incredible?

    Here's the download link if you want to try it out: AndroidPolice Download Mirror for Hacked Skype 2.0

    I've heard people saying this but was never able to get it for myself. I just got it working last night.

    Yes, there has been Skype out for a bit now. The first leak had security issues so it was recommended not to use it

    The original leak only worked on the Thunderbolt and only with the original and MR1 radios (both of which are official). The leaked MR2 radio update that works with leaked Gingerbread ROMs won't work with this new leak. It WILL work with this new leak.

    Secondly, this new release works on a lot of phones other then the Thunderbolt. Which is why it's a big deal to non-TB users.

    Can this be modified to use the rear facing camera. I know this that the Iphone3GS version of skype does this and it annoys me when my friends show off their iphones for that

    On my DI2 I get forced landscape mode when trying to make an outgoing video call and force closes when trying to receive an incoming. I'd love to get this working without rooting my phone though. Any tips?
