CyanogenMod 10 Released on HP Touchpad and Wildfire S

At this point, it just wouldn’t feel like summer unless we spent a little time talking about Jelly Bean. With releases coming out for seemingly everyone at this point, the devices with ports almost outnumber devices without. As the march continues, two new devices have managed to get some Jelly Bean—one of which becomes the second device to get Jelly Bean that wasn’t released as an Android device. They are the HP Touchpad and the HTC Wildfire S.

For the HP Touchpad, the unofficial CyanogenMod 10 port was developed by XDA Forum Member jcsullins, but posted on XDA by XDA Senior Member BIGSimon. For the Wildfire S, XDA Recognized Contributor benjamingwynn posted the unofficial CyanogenMod 10 build with credited help from about 10 other members. As should be expected, both ROMs do have their issues. The Wildfire S port is in its preview stage, meaning that it’s just for testing and shouldn’t be used unless you’re willing to help with testing and development. Of course, the HP Touchpad isn’t too much better, as the number of issues far exceeds the number of features working. The HP Touchpad does have the disadvantage of not having run Android from the outset, but that hasn’t stopped the HTC HD2 developers either.

Even so, it’s a beginning and both ROMs are currently under active development. So users just need to exercise a little patience, and both of these ROMs mat soon be stable enough to use. For more info, check out either the HP Touchpad thread or the Wildfire S thread.

There are so many Power Banks out there. However, they are not all the same. Some sacrifice weight for capacity. Others do the opposite. Some come with two ports and some come with more, while others come with less. Some are just batteries with a case around it, but others have some unique features. In this episode of XDA TV, Producer TK reviews the RAVPower RP-WD02 Wireless Filehub & Portable Travel Router. This device is the successor to the RP-WD01...

A Look at the Telegram+ Situation

Most of this article doesn't only apply to Telegram+ -- it just happens to be an example that got a lot of coverage elsewhere, with many authors or commentators putting the full blame on Google, Telegram, the Telegram+ developer or even WhatsApp Inc (eh?). In this article, we'll try to look at the different aspects to provide a clear view of what actually happened, and what can (and hopefully will) improve with regards to developers in general and the Play...

Multi Boot: The Fall of Nandroid?

Ever since custom recoveries and roms became popular, nandroid backups have been the fall back method for all android enthusiasts, irrespective of their confidence levels. They allow easy backup and restore in case things go wrong, which happens invariably when a modification is being tested. With that being said, how relevant are Nandroid Backups to this day? Back in 2011, when the world of Android was being awed by the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S2, a little modification made its appearance...
