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?

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.
