Compile Android 4.2 for the At&T Galaxy S II Skyrocket

As many may have noticed, we here at XDA have spent quite a bit of time over the last couple of weeks talking about Android 4.2. It’s everywhere now, including the SDK and its release to the AOSP. So now comes the time when ROMs should start appearing. For AT&T Galaxy S II Skyrocket users, you could have one sooner than most.

XDA Senior Member sk8erwitskil released a tutorial that helps users compile the newly released revision of Jelly Bean. However, instead of making people start entirely from scratch, this tutorial is more of an add-on from the popular method to compile Android 4.1 for the Skyrocket. As sk8erwitskil explains:

Im in the process of compiling android 4.2 for the skyrocket right now. i wanted to share the changes i needed to make to get it to keep compiling.

With that said, the overall process isn’t complete yet. That means you can’t follow this and have a perfectly running ROM. However, it is fairly close to being completed, and members of the Skyrocket community have been helping figure out the problems and fixes. It shouldn’t be long before fully functional source-built Android 4.2 ROMs start churning out for the Galaxy S II Skyrocket.

For more details, or if you would like to help out, check out the original 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....
