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.

T-Mobile Galaxy S6 Battery Woes

I've been using a T-Mobile Galaxy S6 since the device launched with T-mobile's service. However, over this past holiday weekend I knew I would be in an area without reliable T-Mobile service. So, I opened up T-Mobile's default "Device Unlock" app , pressed unlock, and placed my AT&T SIM card in the device. Everything seemed to be working fine: strong signal, great LTE, good voice calls - until day 3. On Sunday, my Galaxy S6 felt very hot to the touch and...

Earthquake Early Warning in Your Pocket

Probably all of us reading this have a smartphone in our pocket. For many of us, the smartphone has become our primary method of reading and writing e-mails, messaging, and browsing the web. Though proclamations that "smartphones have replaced the personal computer" typically fall on deaf ears, the statements aren't without merit. Indeed, smartphones have "replaced"—or more accurately, "displaced"—PC's in several areas that they have traditionally been dominant. But how many of you look into your pocket, or on your desk, and...
