Install Official Samsung Market and Apps on Galaxy S Running Ice Cream Sandwich

by: JoseFebruary 7, 2012

The Galaxy S was one of the most successful phones made by Samsung. You could never go wrong with this Android smartphone. With its impressive hardware and stellar performance–the best of its time–success had been easy for this smartphone.

And, while this Android smartphone has been denied official Ice Cream Sandwich goodness by its own maker, the Galaxy S got a nice ICS treatment from the ever-dependable guys at XDA Developers. The CyanogenMod-based Onecosmic RC3Plus ICS ROM, for instance, is getting better and is nearing its perfection. The beta version of the ROM has already received a lot of good reviews from people who have tried it.

Upgrade HTC Incredible S to Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich with Virtuous Quattro ROM

by: Alvin YbañezFebruary 7, 2012

Owners of the HTC Incredible S surely love the phone and its 4-inch cinematic display and surround audio powered by SRS. Aside from having a unique contoured design for a tighter grip, the HTC Incredible S also packs a 1 GHz processor for efficient multitasking and a built-in camcorder for capturing moments in HD–both of which makes the phone superbly appealing.  As if those weren’t enough, the HTC Incredible S now has one more reason to become more lovable–Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich accessible to the device via the Virtuous Quattro ROM.

Directly built out of pure AOSP code, the ROM is expected to bring a pure Ice Cream Sandwich experience to [...]

Upgrade Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 to Official Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread Build DDLA1

by: Ken EastFebruary 7, 2012

The Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 is one of Samsung’s very popular entry-level Android handsets.  When it was first released into the market, it originally came with Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread.  But, Samsung has already released an official update for the device, which will bring the phone’s firmware to Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread.

Also referred to as build DDLA1, the firmware update ties up some of the loose ends in the original firmware build that came with the Galaxy Y when it first came out.  So, even though the new version is not as exciting as Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, it may be worth updating your Galaxy Y with it.

This firmware update build DDLA1 [...]

Install Ice Cream Sandwich on Samsung Captivate with Doc’s Master ICS ROM

by: JoseFebruary 6, 2012

So many are eagerly waiting for and wanting to get Ice Cream Sandwich on their Android phones. It’s like a thirst that hasn’t been quenched quite yet. The sad thing about it is that manufacturers are taking forever to release ICS updates for their devices. Though we have our Android community to back us up with custom ICS ROMs, still they are not quite there yet. Some of us might already have tasted the awesomeness of ICS, but most of the time, satisfaction is partial. Most of the builds are not yet perfect.

If you are getting a bit hopeless about having ICS on your device, the latest custom ICS ROM for the Samsung Captivate will surely cheer you up. This custom ROM is [...]

Install AdyScorpius MIUI 4 Ice Cream Sandwich ROM on Samsung Galaxy S2 GT-I9100

by: Alvin YbañezFebruary 6, 2012

Some owners of the Samsung Galaxy S2 will stick to what Samsung officially throws their way, while some others will prefer to grab the latest (read: Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich) code based on AOSP builds.  But, some others won’t settle for anything less than MIUI 4 on their Galaxy S2 GT-I9100.  And, there’s good reason for that.

MIUI is one of the most well-designed custom ROMs for Android.  It blends Android’s power and flexibility with the polished user interface of iOS (which, arguably is much better than iOS’s user interface).  That is why MIUI, the latest of which is version 4, has a cult of devout fans and loyal followers.  XDA [...]

Upgrade Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 to Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich with MIUI 4

by: Alvin YbañezFebruary 6, 2012

In the light of the latest, more powerful, and heavyweight releases of Xperia phones, the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 would look like it has been overshadowed.  One would think that the Xperia X10 would never see the day when Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich would bless its internals.

The truth, however, is that such a day has come.  Thanks to a modified version of MIUI 4, Ice Cream Sandwich is just a flash away from the Xperia X10.  The ROM, called Oodie Prime ROM, is an alpha version of MIUI 4 for the Xperia X10, so, this is still pretty much unstable.  Oodie Prime is based on the CyanogenMod 9 Free Xperia Project (FXP), and therefore carries all of the issues and bugs [...]
