CyanogenMod Compiler Updated for CM10

XDA-Developers is about development and the free sharing of knowledge. Nothing else makes us happier than when a new developer steps out of the ranks of the user and seeks to contribute positively to the overall nature of the site. As we have said before, we strongly encourage that users follow the Cyanogen’s advice on how to become an Android developer the right way. Too often we see users seek to take the quickest route towards “development,” and that is ultimately a detriment to the community at large. The “pool” becomes muddied by multiple derivatives of the same release, making it difficult for users to find actual new development  through the layers of placebo fixes, themed stock ROMs, and 15 versions of the same release based on someone else’s work. This led us to the decision to create Original Development sections on all new flagship and popular devices.

With that being said, many times we come across tools which help users create their own personal and non-distributable versions of their favorite distribution, and we want to let you know about them. A while back, we told you about the CyanogenMod Compiler from XDA Recognized Developer lithid-cm receiving a GUI to complement its command-line interface. Now, there is more news to report. Lithid-cm has added CM10 support to CMC GUI and released the update to the repositories for you to download. He also provides specific information about compiling your own personal CM10 build with this tool:

Building jellybean/CM10
Please understand that cm10 is still under very heavy development. This means even the few working devices will have issues compiling cm10. This is mainly for reasons of setting up the device trees with proper files to extract proprietary files. You may need to implement this yourself if you wish to compile cm10. I will make some notes if people come up with quick fixes to devices properties, you can also look at the cm9 branch for the extract-files.sh and put it into the device folder, that would allow the CMCompiler to extract the files for you. Just please keep that in mind.

If you wish to make your own version of CM10 for personal use, visit the original thread for more information.

Send Links to Any Nearby Device with CaastMe

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
