Yes, you read the title correctly. Thanks to elite, recognized XDA developer Adam Outler, the Verizon variant of the Samsung Galaxy S3 can now join the ranks of other SGS3’s with a fully unlocked bootloader. This is an amazing achievement for the entire community, allowing Verizon users to root their device, flash the unsecured bootloader, and opening the device for complete customization.

HP Android

If you were lucky enough to get an HP TouchPad this time last year during their “fire sale” for $99 (16GB) or the $149 (32GB) your Android luck hasn’t run out yet. Remember, Android first came to the HP TouchPad via CM7, Gingerbread. A few months later, Android 4.0 came to the HP TouchPad, bringing a true tablet UI to the 10″ popular slate. The CyanogenMod development community continues to grace the HP TouchPad, this time with Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean showing up via an unofficial CM10 preview release.

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...

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.

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).

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...
