Here on XDA TV we have a series we like to call Must Have Apps. These are apps that we think are so great and useful that you must have them. We’ve given this title to such programs as Pushbullet, Light Flow, Helium, the AROMA File Manager, ROM Toolbox and Pocket Casts. But today we have an app that surpasses them all. Former XDA TV Producer Adam Outler offers up a must have application. In this video, XDA TV Producer...
CyanogenMod 10 Final for Various Devices
There comes a time in life, when everything must evolve and better itself. This does not happen overnight and certainly not by itself. Apparently, this seems to be the case for the infamous CyanogenMod ROM. The latest installment, known as CM10, is finally getting to a point where the CM team has deemed the release as highly stable and almost bug free. This is great news for anyone using AOSP-based ROMs. as many of them share parts of the CM code as well.
The best part about this is that it allows anyone to try Jelly Bean 4.1, despite not being able to due to lack of updates coming from device manufacturers or because the device may no longer be supported/ineligible for updates. They can now enjoy the improved experience that is offered by the newly revamped OS. Having said that, and going back to the ever evolving nature of our devices’ firmware, you may want to keep an eye out for newer versions of CM (10.1 maybe?) because as of yesterday, 4.2 source code was released to the AOSP, and it comes loaded with all the goods we talked about earlier.
One last thing worth mentioning is that, while the list of supported devices under the CM umbrella is huge, it does not mean that every device supported will receive CM10 final just yet. Only a few of the most popular devices have gotten the green light to label the release as “Final,” including most variants of the SGS3, several variants of the SGS2, HTC One X, Motorola Xoom, and of course the Nexus devices, as well as a few others. So, keep your eyes peeled to see if your device is in the “chosen” list.
You can find if your device is included in the list or not by visiting the CM downloads page, and by visiting your local device forum here on XDA.

OnePlus has been teasing a new product for a while now, hailing it as a game-changer which isn't a tablet or a smartwatch. While speculations were rife about what this game-changing device could be, the company did confirm that the product was indeed a drone in their recent AMA. A tweet and vine from OnePlus shed some more light on this product, which was confirmed to be named as DR-1 (dr-one, get it?) and was to reach stores "next month". In a...
