You just have to love the things created by the hardworking developers in the XDA Developers community because they’re continuously improving our lives and end-user experience. Take, for instance, what XDA Developers member vicino has done to make the Recent Apps switcher look and function better on the Galaxy Nexus. The native Recent Apps switcher in both Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean allows you to see what recent apps are running in the background and also preview their respective app screens.  But, vicino has taken it further and styled it. The modification is easy to…

Google Nexus 7

European folks, you can stop booking plane tickets to London to grab the Nexus 7 –if you can find one in physical stores, that is — as Google has announced that the Asus-made tablet is now on sale in more countries in the region.


We’re getting closer and closer to that Galaxy S3 Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update that’s rumored to be rolled out on August 29, shortly after the Galaxy Note 2 event, which we’ll be attending live, and we hear there’s one more leaked Jelly Bean build for the handset out there. After versions I9300XXDLH4 and I9300XXDLG4, dated August and July, respectively, it’s now time to look at version I9300XXDLH7, that’s available to install on the Galaxy S3 right now. While this is a leaked Android 4.1.1 build for the handset, originating from Samsung, we’re definitely not advising you to flash it…


So Adobe have chosen not to release the Flash player to Jelly Bean devices and are discontinuing it as a whole. Poor move, frankly. This encompasses everything from the Nexus 7 to the custom Jelly Bean builds released by AOKP and CyanogenMod. However as usual XDA members are here to save the day. If you want to get Flash back on your device so you can watch Flash animations, videos and other content in your browsers, here is all you need to do.

Jelly Bean

XDA-Developers has tracked no less than four Android 4.1-based custom ROMs in its forum threads and, while neither of these is yet fully functional and stable, you can’t possibly say no to all of them. That is if you want to taste some Jelly Bean goodness on your EVO 3D, of course.

Motorola Razr Ice Cream Sandwich

Jelly Bean is still just a fantasy for most devices out there, especially the ones that could run Android 4.1 but are yet to receive the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update. Such is the case with Canadian Motorola RAZR users that are still waiting to officially taste ICS on their handsets. However, there’s good news for them as Mobile Syrup is reporting that Motorola Canada mentioned on its Facebook Page an “early September” rollout of the RAZR ICS update: “We wanted to share with you that the RAZR ICS upgrade will rollout in early September. We’ll have more details…


Do people care that they have a new follower? Do they need an alert every time someone responds to something they posted? Do they care that there’s new content available? Do they want to know about free trials? Do they want to be pestered for reviews? Are push notifications getting out of hand? How many of the notifications that app developers set up do you really want to receive?


The hottest Android handset in town, the Galaxy S3, is about to receive the latest Android version, Jelly Bean, in the near future. We have seen rumors that suggested the device will get Android 4.1.1 in the third quarter of the year, only to be followed by new reports offering a more specific roll out date, August 29. We then saw a bunch of Jelly Bean test firmware leak for the Galaxy S3, alongside proper installation instructions and we figured it was only a matter of time until Samsung and its carrier partners released the update. Now we hear, via…
