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.[Thanks to XDA Senior Member rezo609 and XDA Recognized Themer zanderman112 for the tips!]

Intel showed its face at MWC 2015 to give the world a yearly update on their upcoming line of chipsets for mobile. While last year the company focused on gathering partnerships and strengthening up their services, architectures and production, now they are revamping their Atom line of SoCs for mobile with a new brand name and a distinctive category format much like that of their i3/i5/i7 line of personal computing processors. The new scheme will be naming the chips x3, x5...
