AOSP JellyBean Build for the T-Mobile G2x

Jelly Bean has made its way across these forums at a fever-pitch. Practically every day, we report on another device receiving support in some form, and the list continues to grow. Now, thanks to Team EaglesBlood and XDA Recognized Developer doniqcc, T-Mobile G2x owners have received a pre-alpha AOSP build of JellyBean and now can join in on all the hype.

According to EaglesBlood, there will be no support provided for this release, as it is still in development. The guys from EaglesBlood just wanted to give the G2x community a taste of JellyBean and give users the chance to take the latest version of Android for a spin. This is a “barebones” AOSP build, and is not yet fully functional. The developerss are fully aware of what is working and what is not, and ask that users please not report problems or bugs at this time. According to their running list of things currently broken:

*Audio doesn't work

*Data tends to cut off at times. A "hot-reboot" usually fixes it and this is due to audio not working.

*Phone will not enter 'Sleep Mode', again due to audio malfunctioning.

*Mobile Data Network: Data IS working, but you might need to cause the phone to hot-reboot (...easiest way is by connecting to non-encrypted network, which in turn usually fails.) It's due to a SIM-card thing... 

*On cold-boot the SIM card status is not correct.

If you have a G2x and want to get a glimpse of things to come, check out Team EaglesBlood’s ROM thread for their pre-alpha release of JellyBean 4.1.

Device Review: No.1 X1 Rugged Smartphone

We are almost at the end of Q2 for 2015, and we have seen most of the flagship phones for the year already. While flagship phones usually offer bleeding-edge specs and are the most sought after phones, there is a huge market for non-flagship phones. Some offer value, others offer unique differentiating features. Today, we are going to look at the X1 phone by a Chinese company named N0.1. The company promises a truly rugged IP68 Certified phone. The device has a Quad...

When a Friend or Family Member Asks for a Phone Recommendation, What Do You Tell Them?

The majority of us here at XDA would consider ourselves power users and Android enthusiasts. Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
