Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy S3 Unsecure Bootloader Released

by: Derek RossAugust 15, 2012
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 TouchPad gets Android Jelly Bean via CM10 Preview Release

by: Derek RossAugust 13, 2012
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.

CyanogenMod 9 stable release is out for the Galaxy Nexus

by: LucianAugust 9, 2012

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 least a couple dozen phones will support it, they will announce it.

Reaching the stable version of CM9 is a very big deal for the developers that have been working on it for so long, because it has been a huge project. When they started porting ICS over, they’ve had to basically [...]

HTC G1 gets unofficial Jelly Bean port

by: AdrianAugust 9, 2012

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dual-core smartphone might not get an official Jelly Bean upgrade, due to the software not “being supported” by the “outdated” hardware?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 (aka T-Mobile G1) is the device that started it all, being the first ever Android running phone in history. Back in September 2008 (man, we’re old!), the Dream was introduced powered by Android 1.0, which quickly turned into 1.1 and then into 1.5 Cupcake.

The last official software update [...]

4G LTE Galaxy Nexus gets another Jelly Bean custom ROM courtesy of XDA user mmuzzy

by: AdrianAugust 8, 2012

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 matter of weeks, but if you feel that you simply can’t wait anymore, you do have a few options to help you perform the upgrade yourselves. For Verizon’s 4G LTE-enabled Nexus, the latest such option comes from XDA senior member mmuzzy, who has posted an AOSP build of Jelly Bean on this forum thread [...]

No updates past CM 7.2 for Nexus One, HTC Desire, Legend, Xperia X10 and others

by: Mike AndriciAugust 2, 2012

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 support for Cyanogen Mod 9+, namely almost all smartphones that are based on the first generation Qualcomm Snapdragon processors (this translates into “all smartphones using a QSD8x50, MSM7x25, MSM7x27 or MSM7x27T SoC”). Some of the most popular smartphones based on the Snapdragon S1 are the [...]

First unofficial CM10 build for Nexus 7 already available, seems to be working great

by: AdrianJuly 26, 2012

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 out something different too.

What better alternative than a CyanogenMod 10 port, slightly modified and supposedly working like a charm? Before getting overly excited, you should know that everybody’s favorite independent dev team hasn’t yet released an official CM 10 [...]

CM10 has a Jelly Bean Easter Egg

by: Derek RossJuly 23, 2012

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 away.

Not to miss out on the fun, it seems our favorite Android modding team, CyanogenMod, has joined in on the Easter egg game with CM10. In a similar fashion to the stock Android Easter egg, you tap on the CyanogenMod version and you’re greeted with Cid’s [...]

Galaxy S3 CyanogenMod 10 (Jelly Bean) preview builds for AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile available

by: Chris SmithJuly 17, 2012

There are plenty of CyanogenMod fans among Android fans, and plenty of them must have surely purchased a Samsung Galaxy S3, the most important Android handset of the year, at least thus far. They’re certainly waiting for CyanogenMod 10 to be released for their recently acquired device and we have good news for them – CM 9 is already available for all U.S. versions except for Verizon’s.

Steve Kondik, the Android guru behind the CyanogenMod firmare has released CM 10 preview builds for three of the available four Galaxy S3 versions including AT&T’s, Sprint’s and T-Mobile’s. And we’re not really surprised to see them come [...]
