Considering there’s no official Jelly Bean update coming to the Samsung Galaxy S2 in the immediate future, I’ve put together a step-by-step guide to install Cyanogenmod 10.1 on your GT-I9100 handset.
Developers have ported webOS to the Nexus 7. Currently in Alpha stage, the release has limited functionality, but should be a good project for hackers.
Cyanogenmod 10.1 recently added nightly build support to the Google Nexus 7 (grouper), Samsung Galaxy Nexus (maguro) and ASUS Transformer Pad tablets.
Following up from yesterday’s Samsung security scare, XDA Developer Chainfire has created a fix for the root exploit affecting Exynos 4210- and 4412-based handsets. If you’re running one of the afflicted devices then this is information you can’t afford to miss.
LG Optimus G owners who would like their device to look and feel more like its close cousin the Nexus 4 may be getting closer to seeing their goal realized, but there’s still a lot of work to go.
In the past, Asus has been pretty good about providing updates for the Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T, but if you can’t wait to get Android 4.2, there is a solution.
XDA member itsmikeramsay has released unofficial CM10.1 ROMs for Galaxy S3 owners on T-Mobile and AT&T handsets. Whilst there are still some bugs to be worked out, it’s a great start for users looking to run Android 4.2 on their S3.
It never takes those guys over at XDA Developers long to break into anything it seems, and the Verizson’s Galaxy Note 2 is their latest success. With the bootloader unlocked the Note 2 is now open for more custom ROMs and modifications, so it will be interesting to see what the community decides to so with this technological behemoth.
We’ve known for a while that CyanogenMod 10.1, based on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, is a work in progress. However, seeing as the first ports for Nexus devices have only been made available this past week, we would have never suspected other builds are very close to reaching nightly status.
HTC and Verizon’s Droid DNA was already extremely appealing for the masses, with its quad-core power and gorgeous 1080p display, but for the beast to really reach the hearts of hardcore Android enthusiasts there still remained one detail to sort out – custom ROMs.
