CM10.1 Official Released for Nexus 7 3G, Unofficial for ZTE Blade

Android 4.2 AOSP development has been pretty widespread. Despite the busy holiday season, developers have found ways to get Android 4.2 AOSP ROMs on devices of every shape and size. Recently, two more devices have been given some Android 4.2 goodness—the ZTE Blade and the Nexus 7 3G.

XDA Senior Member eak1080 has released an official CyanogenMod 10.1 build for the Nexus 7 3G. Given that the Nexus 7 is a Google-controlled device, the CM10.1 build is pretty much complete. All of the main features work, with only a couple of ROM features not working properly. If users want Picasa Sync, there is a fix they’ll need to flash; and the Quick Settings Toggles are a work in progress. Otherwise, the ROM should be pretty stable and usable.

The ZTE Blade port was actually built by MoDaCo’s KonstaT, but posted to XDA by Forum Member android@sam. Even though the ZTE is not a pure Android experience like the Nexus 7, the ROM is still pretty complete. There are only a few things wrong, including:

Bluetooth (& bt-tethering)
Wifi tethering (use an external app, e.g. WiFi
Tether for Root Users)
USB-tethering (use an external app)
FM radio

Despite the small number of things wrong, KonstaT has stated that this ROM is really only for developers, advanced users, and testers as it is not yet a complete ROM. So this probably isn’t 100% ready for daily use, although it could be used that way if Bluetooth is not needed.

For additional details, check out either the ZTE Blade thread or the Nexus 7 3G thread.

Samsung Galaxy S6 To Receive Major Camera Update

When the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were launched, they became the prime focus for all discussions as Samsung took a break on their traditional design philosophy and opted for something that their flagship lineup hadn't seen before. But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
