CM10.1 Nightlies for the TF300T, Pre-Alpha for the Huawei Ideos X5

With Android 4.2 development in full swing, devices old and new, big and small could be seeing CM10.1 or similar AOSP-derived offerings in the near future. Let’s face it, if the HTC HD2 can run Android 4.2, pretty much any modern device can. Now, there are CM10.1 ROMs available for the ASUS Transformer TF300T and the Huawei Ideos X5 U8800.

XDA Recognized Developer XpLoDWilD of Team Hacksung is doing the work for the TF300T CM10.1, while the Huawei Ideos X5 is being worked on by XDA Forum Member gleb_grid. Nightlies are available for the TF300T now, whereas the Huawei Ideos X5 has a pre-alpha that needs a lot of work.

The TF300T Nightlies are actually quite stable. Among the issues reported is rotation not working correctly and a Superuser bug. If you don’t rotate the tablet very often, the rotation bug won’t be too annoying. And to alleviate the superuser issues, you can simply download SuperSU. Otherwise, the ROM appears to be working quite well.

Unfortunately, the Huawei Ideos X5 build is pretty rough. The ROM has been set up for development, but none of the issues have actually been fixed yet. At this point, a developer—or team of developers—will have to get their hands dirty making it work. At least it’s a start!

For more details, check out TF300T thread or the Huawei Ideos X5 thread.

The beginning of April is dominated by April Fools. There are jokes and pranks everywhere, which are meant to fool people.

Google’s Prank Roundup for April Fools 2015 [Updated]

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.
