If you’re still rocking the the first Android tablet to run Honeycomb and are in dire need for some CyanogenMod goodness, the wait is over. Sure, the WiFi edition of the XOOM has officially had Android 4.1.1 since the end of July, but the LTE variant (Verizon Wireless) hasn’t had much love in the form of Jelly Bean, until now. Thanks to Team Rouge and CyanogenMod, CM10 is now available for both the Wingray and the Stingray for your flashing pleasure. Please remember, nightly builds are to be considering bleeding edge ROMs. There may be a bug or two and…
Until now, every CM version had nightly unstable builds, RC (release candidate) beta versions and finally stable releases. Now a new kind of release has been introduced in order to split the distance between nightly and RC and satisfy the needs of as many regular users as possible.
Over on XDA Developers, a user named “Football” has posted a test only build of Jelly Bean for the HTC One X, identified as 3.00.999.7 with a large 641MB download size. As this is still an unstable build, non-developers might want to steer clear and wait for the official version instead. But if you’re the adventurous type, we have the download link.
Last week Android Authority reported that Android 4.1 Jelly Bean was finally coming to several Samsung devices that are long overdo. You would think that this would also mean Verizon’s version of the Galaxy Nexus – it is a Google flagship device after all.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 sure has had a lot of customization already, with a root arriving long before the tablet even hit the market. Shortly after, ClockworkMod was ported to Note 10.1, and now even custom ROMs have begun to surface. Looking to get your mod on with the Galaxy Note 10.1? XDA Developers forum has some of the first custom ROMs already. There are three different ROMs, each with their own different features and appeal.
We have some excellent news for those of you who aren’t reluctant to flash custom ROMs on Android-based gadgets. The One Xl, One S and EVO 4G LTE have just been added to the list of devices supported by CyanogenMod10 nightly builds.
It’s hard to believe that its been three years since the original Motorola Droid hit the market. Whether you love Motorola or not, it’s hard to deny that the Droid was a significant part of the growth of Android during its heyday. Fast-forwarding today and the Droid still manages to carry on, despite being near-archaic in age for a smartphone. While most Droid users have moved on to newer handsets, one developer at XDA has decided to show just how capable the Droid still is, pushing out a complete build of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
XDA-Developers has tracked no less than four Android 4.1-based custom ROMs in its forum threads and, while neither of these is yet fully functional and stable, you can’t possibly say no to all of them. That is if you want to taste some Jelly Bean goodness on your EVO 3D, of course.
