Android 4.2.1 Available For The Asus Transformer TF700

Well, here we are. Another day, and yep, you guessed it: Another device is now running Android 4.2. This time, it’s the turn of the Asus Transformer TF700. although admittedly, this particular build has been available for a little bit of time now. While the official update to 4.2 for TF700 owners can’t be far away, there’s no need to sit around waiting. However this is, of course, an AOSP-based ROM. So if you’re a fan of all ASUS stock ROMs, it might be best to hang on a little while longer.

This particular build comes courtesy of XDA Senior Member nycbjr, and is (thanks to some recent audio/speaker related development wizardry) up and running with most of the major functionality we all expect from a daily driver ROM. There are, however, still some issues with the camera and GPS functionality. But how many people actually take photographs with a ten inch tablet in the first place? All the important stuff is working such as WiFi, sound, SD cards, rotation, Bluetooth, HW acceleration, and so on.

Assuming you’re already running a custom recovery, it’s simply a case of flashing the ROM and gapps. So if you feel like sprucing up your TF700 with a touch of 4.2 AOSP, check out the original thread for more details.

T-Mobile Galaxy S6 Battery Woes

I've been using a T-Mobile Galaxy S6 since the device launched with T-mobile's service. However, over this past holiday weekend I knew I would be in an area without reliable T-Mobile service. So, I opened up T-Mobile's default "Device Unlock" app , pressed unlock, and placed my AT&T SIM card in the device. Everything seemed to be working fine: strong signal, great LTE, good voice calls - until day 3. On Sunday, my Galaxy S6 felt very hot to the touch and...

Earthquake Early Warning in Your Pocket

Probably all of us reading this have a smartphone in our pocket. For many of us, the smartphone has become our primary method of reading and writing e-mails, messaging, and browsing the web. Though proclamations that "smartphones have replaced the personal computer" typically fall on deaf ears, the statements aren't without merit. Indeed, smartphones have "replaced"—or more accurately, "displaced"—PC's in several areas that they have traditionally been dominant. But how many of you look into your pocket, or on your desk, and...
