The CyanogenMod team released the RC1 version of CM9 just before Google I/O started. A couple of weeks later, RC2 was launched, and now it seems that CyanogenMod 9 stable is trickling out for... some devices. Well, truth be told, they’ve only released it for the Galaxy Nexus so far, which may be why the team hasn’t made an official post about it yet. I’m sure that once at leas...

HTC G1

Worried that your one-year-old dual-core smartphone might not get an official Jelly Bean upgrade, due to the software not “being supported” by the “outdated”... hardware? Well, that’s bull and you know it! And if you doubted that, we now have the most conclusive piece of evidence possible to prove otherwise.

The HTC Dream (ak...

As quickly as Samsung upgraded the international version of the Galaxy Nexus phone to Android 4.1, we obviously hoped that the Sprint and Verizon branded models were to follow suit not long... after. That hasn’t quite happened, unfortunately, and both phones are still waiting to officially join the Jelly Bean fun.

Sprint and Big Red have both promised to roll out the update in a m...

cyanogenmod nexus one

Although the eager hackers from XDA developers have already launched a Jelly Bean port for the Google / HTC Nexus One, the people behind CyanogenMod have recently announced that the first Nexus... smartphone ever will not be officially compatible with Cyanogen versions beyond 7.x (Gingerbread).

Unfortunately, there are also a bunch of other smartphones that won’t be getting official suppo...

Google’s fresh new Nexus 7 Tablet comes with the latest (and some say greatest) Android version out of the box, but that hasn’t stopped independent devs having their... way with the new gadget’s software. While I’m sure most regular users are more than content with Nexus 7’s Jelly Bean official build, I’ll bet there are people amongst you who are dying to try...

CM10 Easter Egg

We reported on the Jelly Bean “Easter egg” that comes standard with the latest version of Android a while back. You tap 5 times on the Android version number displayed under about... phone or about tablet and you’ll be greeted with a large Jelly Bean. If you then press and hold on said Jelly Bean for a second or two, Jelly Beans fill the screen and you can playfully flick them...

Acer Iconia a500

Usually some of the first devices built from Android source (AOSP) fall to the likes of Nexus devices. Thankfully, developers don’t always play by those rules. Shortly after the source... code for Jelly Bean 4.1.1 was released, the Acer Iconia A500 received a very nice alpha build of Jelly Bean. Over the last few days, XDA Developer randomblame and his team have been tweaking and hacki...

google-nexus-q

When Google first launched the Nexus Q last month at Google I/O 2012 they made it publicly known that the Q had a USB port for general “hackability”. That statement alone and the... limited features of the Nexus Q to some meant that Google wasn’t entirely sure yet what the Q could evolve into.  Since it’s launch, developers have been busy hacking away at the Q, trying...
