Compile CyanogenMod 10 for the Galaxy S
Since the Jelly Bean source was released, we’ve brought you news of a very large number of official and unofficial CyanogenMod 10 ports. Now, as new releases are beginning to wind down, various developers are writing up guides to show others how to do it. One early guide on compiling Jelly Bean from source was already covered on our Portal not too long ago. Now, more device specific guides are beginning to slip through the cracks, including for the Samsung Galaxy S I9000.
Posted here by XDA Senior Member pmos69, the guide builds on existing guides that teach how to compile CM9 from source—all fully credited, of course. It starts with the very basics, including installing Ubuntu packages, Android SDK, and Java. Then, it goes through that now familiar task of installing the repository.
After the set up, pmos69 walks users through how to compile the ROM and flash it to their devices. It is a very elementary guide, but perfect for those looking to start out and want to do so on the latest version of CyanogenMod 10. Additionally, there are tips on how to update the repository. While some may want more topics explained, it is quite easy to follow for even the most novice of users.

As of late, Microsoft has been making a subtle but widespread play into the Android ecosystem, with small apps like Bing Torque being the foreshadowing of the larger ones to come, and as it stands, Skype and the three popular office apps - Powerpoint, Excel and Word - are thriving on the Play Store following their public release earlier this year, prior to which the Office suite remained in beta.
