AOSP and CM10 Jelly Bean for the Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1

Two weeks ago, Jelly Bean source code was released. Since then, it’s been a frenzy on XDA as developers have worked hard to get the newest version of the OS ported to their devices. In that time, over two dozen devices have received Jelly Bean to some extent, and many more are bound to follow. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 are among the latest to get Jelly Bean. However, unlike many devices, the Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1 actually have two Jelly Bean ports. One is pure AOSP and the other is CyanogenMod 10.

Despite some early release jitters, all four ROMs actually work quite well. XDA Senior Member safariking posted the pure AOSP build, while XDA Senior Member kallt_kaffe posted the CyanogenMod 10 for the Galaxy Tab 8.9. XDA Senior Member MapleSyrup posted both Jelly Bean ROMs for the Galaxy Tab 10.1. Also, all four ROMs have had heavy developmental help from XDA Recognized Developer pershoot.

For the Galaxy Tab 8.9, there isn’t a running list of what’s working on the CyanogenMo10 port, aside from how 3G works. That said, it is listed as preview, so users should expect bugs here and there. The pure AOSP ROM seems to be more stable, as the only things reported not working are the camera and Google Now. Of course, so early in the development, there could likely be more broken features that have not yet been discovered. For the Galaxy Tab 10.1, the CyanogenMod 10 port seems almost stable, with the only thing listed as not working being the camera. The AOSP build seems a little more rough as 3G, 4G, and AGPS are listed as not working for some models.

All in all, these ROMs are quite usable, but users should note that these builds are far from complete. For download links, additional details, and more, check out the corresponding links below.

Galaxy Unpacked: What is Samsung Going to Unveil?

Amidst all the hype of the OnePlus 2 and the rain of Moto 2015 news, Samsung tried stealing the limelight back to itself by announcing their next "Galaxy Unpacked" event, which will be held on August 13th 2015. Samsung took to Twitter to reveal a very cryptic gif associated with the event, which probably has some clue on the device(s) to be launched. The hashtag "#TheNextGalaxy" does indeed point that the event will be the launchpad for a Galaxy device,...

Arrow Launcher: Good Effort Without Direction

Microsoft’s Android expansion has been well received on the productivity front, but not so much in terms of original applications. While their Office suite managed to bring some of the document-editing excellence to mobile, attempts at entering one’s interface through apps like Picturesque proved to be pointless failures. But even then, some apps like Hyperlapse redeem the computing giant through great quality. Microsoft seems to be approaching Android with brute, misdirected development and plenty of unorganized output, and if they want...
