Just a small bit of information today for you Asus Transformer (TF101) fans. If you like the AOKP ROM as much as I do and keep flashing every upgrade, don’t flash Build 39 or 40! Whilst other devices work perfectly fine with these build versions, the Transformer suffers from bugs in both builds. Build 39 Issues This build was catostrophic and wouldn’t even boot. While it was endlessly cycling in a boot loop, I realized I should probably have googled to see if there were any major problems with the ROM. Needless to say there were bug reports everywhere. A little lesson…

For those who have Samsung’s new Galaxy S3 Android super phone but want something closer to the vanilla Android experience, rather than the heavily customized UI provided by Samsung, then here is some good news for you. The S3 is now part of the official CyanogenMod 9 nightly build process and will eventually receive an official stable version of CyanogenMod 9 when it is released. Due to the hard work of XDA Recognized Developer XpLoDWilD, the Galaxy S3 has been added to the listed of supported CyanogenMod 9 devices. Initial reports are that the firmware is stable and highly functonal, however there are a few minor…

With all the recent attention towards models like the Samsung Galaxy S3 or the HTC One X, the HTC Thunderbolt isn’t exactly basking in the spotlight anymore. That being said, there are millions of Thunderbolts still in use today, and they make for a dang good daily driver. Developers know this, and that is why the InfectedROM team are still providing nightly ROM builds to faithful Thunderbolt users. After scanning the extensive list of features, I gave the InfectedROM Eternity a test drive on my HTC Thunderbolt. I was quite impressed.

With all the hype about the Galaxy S3 these days, does it still pay to own the Google phone? Of course it does! Galaxy Nexus owners receive all OTA updates, have gratuitous amounts of developer support, and still own one of the more powerful Android devices to date. Regardless of these facts, many owners are itching to taste some of that GS3 goodness, and we don’t blame them. The device and its software are simply epic. Thankfully, it didn’t take long for the Galaxy Nexus’ developer community to provide loyal owners with a way to do it! What is needed? Now before…

It might not be “designed for humans” and it doesn’t come from the most popular and successful Android manufacturer of the moment, but the HTC One X is one heck of a phone and some even consider it the greatest out there. There was, however, one thing missing to make the One X truly amazing, and that was a custom ROM to tickle the imagination of amateur (and professional) rooters. Less than a week ago, we found out that the phone’s bootloader was finally unlocked, so it was only a matter of time until we could flash some tweaked software goodness on…

The independent developers community has really had a field day with the Galaxy S3’s software, although Sammy’s flagship is yet to be made available to the wide public. The device’s official ROM has been leaked more than a week ago, the S3 has been rooted even earlier, the first custom ROM has appeared almost instantly after, the S Voice app was made to work with non-S3 devices and, finally, the TouchWiz UX launcher was ported to the Galaxy S2. That’s some very impressive work from modders and hackers already, but that’s not all that has been done with S3’s software….

I know that you just can’t get enough of the news about the newly unveiled Samsung Galaxy S3, especially when talking about its software, hacks, custom ROMs, and so on. That’s why we’re glad to tell you that the handheld’s TouchWiz UX launcher has been ported to the Galaxy S2, courtesy of a skilled member of the XDA-Developers forum. The news comes less than a week after the Galaxy S3’s stock ROM has been leaked, a few days after the first custom ROM popped up on the web, and just two days after the S Voice app has been made to work on…

The Transformer Pad 300 might not be the hottest Android-based tablet available these days, but Asus has its ways to ensure the popularity of the company’s products. The 10-incher quad-core tablet has just gotten a bootloader unlock tool, so if custom ROMs are your thing, the “games” can now officially begin! Following in the footsteps of the Transformer Prime, the Transformer Pad 300 has been released last month with pretty much the same tech specs as its predecessor, but with a plastic exterior replacing the sturdy and elegant Prime’s aluminum body. Asus has released a bootloader unlock tool for the…

Samsung’s Galaxy S3 still has a long way to go before its official release, especially in the US or Canada (where it still doesn’t have a precise launch date), but you can already play around with the new phone’s software. A couple of days back, XDA dev Chainfire managed to root the S3 without even holding it for a second in his hands, while just  hours later the official ROM had been leaked, courtesy of another industrious developer, Faryaab. It was only a matter of time before we began to see custom ROMs pop up on the web, so it should come as…
