This wonderful Geek-Christmas time of the year is back once more, promising a lot of exciting reveals from big manufacturers such as HTC and Samsung, but also some pretty gems teased by other smaller OEMs. What kind of exciting products will we see? While we've got a lot of leaked information from the highly expected S6 and M9, there is still a lot to learn about both - and about everything else that will be shown. What kind of trends will...
Camera Fix for ICS ROMs on the Xperia X10
Some may have noticed that often times, many source-built ROMs seem to have that one annoying issue that keeps them from being perfect. Solving this issue can take months and include a number of developers, testers, and contributors. However, when that fix finally does come, it’s awesome. In most cases, the annoying issue is usually something like Bluetooth, Camera, or in the case of Sprint phones, WiMAX. For the Sony Xperia X10, the camera was the issue. Now, there’s a fix.
XDA Forum Member scritch007 has released a fix that should help the camera start working on AOSP-derived ICS builds. As scritch007 explains:
I took the sources from Sony, and removed all the specific parts, face recognition, scenes and so on.
Used missing defines from Zte blade Ics repository.
I’m now testing with FXP CM9.1 and the default camera App
I’m running a FXP-kernel 140 or 139 but they are nearly the same.
I’m mostly using App Camera Zoom for taking picture (because it bought it when it was the one app that worked with htc wildfire ICS camera ) but the default app also takes pictures.
Not bad for the first post scritch007 ever had on XDA. The fix is confirmed working in all camera modes, including 8MP and 6MP. To install the fix, simply download the binaries and flash via ClockworkMod Recovery.

Last week, I wrote about the best apps to unleash the raw photographic power of your Lollipop smartphone. All four of those cameras generate lossless DNG images with pounds of potential for apps like Photoshop to unlock, but what if you’re looking to edit or view those pics on the go? QuickPic, Google Photos, and the other mainstays treat raw images like they don't exist. This rundown seeks to fill the void and give you full control over your precious pictures....
While the majority of the top apps have already incorporated Google's newest design language, there are still very many apps that are in need of some Material Design love. Which apps do you think are most desperately in need of an update?
