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.

I/O Summary: Google Cardboard Virtual Reality

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
