CyanogenMod 10 Preview for the US Galaxy S III Variants

Jelly Bean has been flying around the forums at speeds approachable only by certain science fiction spaceships. With numerous ports ranging from SDK ports to unofficial CM10 ports and source-built AOSP ROMs, XDA has not been short on Jelly Bean since its debut. There’s even been talk of official CyanogenMod 10 being readied for release. For the US variants of the Samsung Galaxy S III, official preview builds are now available.

How official are these builds, one might ask? Well, the big man himself, XDA Recognized Developer cyanogen posted CyanogenMod 10 for the AT&T and T-Mobile versions himself. Heading up the Sprint version is XDA Recognized Developer noobnl.

Although the versions are 100% official, they are still considered preview builds, which means that there are some issues. The AT&T and T-Mobile versions seem to have the same issues, as posted by cyanogen:

* Overlay for UI (extra butter)- We’re waiting on CodeAurora to publish, UI is a little janky.
* Camera preview turns green during animations and may crash.
* Audio sometimes dies completely
* All the things.

The Sprint version has many of the same issues, posted by noobnl:

* Overlay for UI (extra butter)- We’re waiting on CodeAurora to publish, UI is a little janky.
* Camera preview turns green during animations and may crash.
* MMS downloading doesn’t work but sending & retrieving does work, use a 3rd party SMS/MMS app that can download them.
* All the things.

As CM10 gets more complete—and as more features are merged from CM9—users can expect these ROMs to get really good within a respectable amount of time. Cyanogen has stated that he actually does use the T-Mobile version as his daily driver. So despite the errors, the ROMs appear to be stable enough for daily use. That said, there’s still a lot of work to be done.

Xiaomi Finally Releases Kernel Sources

If you are familiar with Xiaomi, you might have heard that they are not the most compliant when it comes to the General Public License that makes the core of Android open to us. The terms of the GPLv2 state that since the Android kernel is based on the Linux kernel, which is licensed under GPL,v2 Android has to be open-source for everyone to study or modify, and those that modify the Android kernel have to make their sources immediately available for...

The History of Flagships: Part III – HTC

A few months ago, we came up with the idea of presenting the history of flagship devices released by some of the major Android OEMs. In this, we've had the pleasure of bringing you the stories of Sony (Ericsson) and Samsung. Now, it's time for our third and final installment. This is a very special episode, as the OEM I will talk about was heavily connected to Android and the beginnings of XDA as a whole. Yes, I'm talking about HTC, the...
