Bash Script for Building CM7 & Make Script For 32bit
If you’re fed up with typing in your commands each time you want to build a new version of CM7, take a look at the bash script that XDA forum member Jazi has put together.
The script edits and updates the build.prop i the zip with the time and your name (you’ll need to replace Jazi with your own). Note that the output directory must be empty for the build to run properly. If this isn’t the case, you’ll need to remove the first two lines of the code.
Some of you may know that a 64 bit system is required to compile CM7 since compiling Android 2.3 from source requires 64 bit. However, it is possible to build 2.3 upwards if a few tweaks are made to the make file and XDA forum member wes342 has helpfully posted his own make script that will do everything on a 32 bit system.
For more information, head on over to the forum thread where you’ll find Jazi’s script in the first post and wes342’s script in post 10.
Original credit also due to nicandris and his shell script.

Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year. Not too long ago we featured a...
HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads. Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
