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.

New AOSP Branch Details Potential Build System Upgrades?

While there are frequent unexplained changes and pushes to Google's AOSP repositories, an interesting-looking new branch has been pushed out recently, called "master-soong". Taking a look at the changes made to the manifest repository (which is used to specify the repositories to be downloaded when building Android), it appears there are some new repositories making an appearance. Of note here are new prebuilt repositories for Go, and Ninja. Go is a programming language, created by Google, which compiles to produce...

Send Links to Any Nearby Device with CaastMe

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...
