April Fools Day is once again upon us and as usual, tech companies everywhere have not failed to keep us entertained. With a trove of fantastic faux product launches and even some real product launches that were taken as April Fools jokes, people have been busy releasing their hilarious ideas. With many of these jokes being nostalgic and some even being functional it's easy to appreciate the spirit behind them. Samsung Galaxy Blade Edge In a reference to the Galaxy...
ASUS Transformer TF300T Gets 4.1.1 AOSP Jelly Bean
Jelly Bean has been rolling out across XDA at a fervent pace. Between it being released for the latest Nexus devices and developers releasing it for a variety of other devices, Jelly Bean is quickly making its way everywhere.
One of the most recent devices to get a fresh taste of Jelly Bean is the ASUS Transformer TF300T. Developed as a preview for the much anticipated CyanogenMod 10, XDA Recognized Developer XpLoDWilD got Jelly Bean 4.1.1 working on the TF300T until CM10 was complete enough to compile from.
As is to be expected for early builds of Jelly Bean, the ROM is a little rough. About half of the main features work, and about half don’t work. The current list of working features include:
– Audio playback
And what still needs fixed:
– Audio volume (is stuck at either 0 or 50%)
– Audio recording likely
– HW Video playback (but software playback works)
XpLoDWilD has asked that users with a little bit of testing experience be the ones to flash it, as it is a rough build. The installation process is a little unique as well. Users looking to flash the ROM will have to flash it over custom recovery then flash a boot.img through fastboot before rebooting, so be sure to read the instructions carefully.

The beginning of April is dominated by April Fools. There are jokes and pranks everywhere, which are meant to fool people. This news is no joke though, as Google has pushed the shiny red button to send out over-the-air updates to supported devices. Well, sort of, as only a few of available Nexus devices got updates to Android 5.1. Here's a list of OTAs that can be downloaded and flashed by stock recoveries. You can find guides on how to revert...
Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors. I speak, of course, about April Fools Day. As has become their custom, Google launched lighthearted "pranks" for each of their various services (with other tech sites and vendors following suit), and we have done our best to round up the humorous products and tweaks surfacing thus far....
