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!

The show began with a quiet voice whispering to...
Each year, smartphone makers attempt to one-up each other in features and specs, but time and again these improvements feel incremental rather than revolutionary. Samsung hopes to break this trend with a new hardware and software design philosophy, and press details of the new-and-improved cameras shared by the S6 and S6 Edge show that they are off to a great start. Once you get past the curved displays and wraparound Gorilla Glass 4, the most striking feature on these slabs is the...
