The list of devices officially announced to get Android Jelly Bean soon might not be very long, but, if you want to take the latest mobile OS version for a quick (unauthorized) spin, you can... already do it on a bunch of gadgets.

The Tegra 3-powered versions of the HTC One X and the Samsung Galaxy S3, as well as Sprint’s and Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus, have all been treated with...

Nexus Jelly Bean

The latest (and hopefully greatest) Android OS version, 4.1 Jelly Bean, is only a couple of days old, but independent developers have already done a magnificent job of porting it to some of... the most popular smartphones around.

The GSM Galaxy Nexus might not have needed any unofficial hacking work, as it was the first phone to get an official OTA update to Android 4.1, but the Ver...

Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean

The Android 4.0 ICS rollout to older devices has been and still is grueling, but the first signals for Jelly Bean’s evolution are promising. The Galaxy Nexus has already received an official... OTA update to Android 4.1, while the list of devices already announced to be getting upgrades in the near future include the Nexus S and the Motorola Xoom.

The official efforts to bring Jelly Bea...

aokp-rom-TFPrime

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 wa...

Samsung-Galaxy-S3

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.

InfectedROM Eternity HTC Thunderbolt

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...

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...

htc-one-x

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...

Nexus add-on 2

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, th...

GALAXY-S-III-TouchWiz-UX-Launcher-on-GALAXY-S2

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...
