CM10 Makes Its Way to the Amaze 4G (At Long Last…)
Some devices are lucky enough to get unofficial updates to the latest Android builds in no time at all, others have to endure a little bit of a wait. Some devices however, such as the Amaze 4G, are left hanging just that little bit longer than most. Fortunately though for Amaze owners looking for CM10 on their device, the wait is now over.
XDA Recognized Developer sportsstar89 posted an unofficial build of CM10 for the device, which has all the major functionality you’ll need for daily use covered. Things such as WiFi, data, Bluetooth, GPS, audio, camera, CPU management, and so on work. However, as with any new build, there may be bugs. If you do happen to find that something isn’t working quite like it should, this is where your logcats come in handy. That said, there doesn’t seem to be anything too serious that would prevent you from enjoying CM10 on your Amaze. The usual rules apply: recovery, flash, flash GAPPS, and you’re good to go.
If you want to check this out for yourself and give your Amaze 4G a new lease of life, take a look at the original development thread and see how it runs.
Update – It seems that since I wrote this the build has been given approval by the CM team and is now oficially official.

Google Drive for Work, Google Apps for Work (paid edition), Education and Government customers will not be affected by these changes and can continue using...
One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
