EOS ICS Sheds Nightly Tag, Brings Joy to All Xoom Variants

About a month ago, we wrote about Team EOS, and the impressive work they have done for the previously neglected Motorola Xoom tablet. Despite already having many “firsts” under their collective belts thanks to their previous releases, their newest offering brings a couple of new highlights not yet seen in the Xoom Development Community.

Thanks to the laborious efforts of XDA forum members SolarnzNusinceBigrushdogGPstarkcrudup, and phokus; the fully open source, AOSP-built, and heavily-modified EOS Ice Cream Sandwich releases have finally shed their nightly tag. Growing up to full release status, this ROM has a few more “firsts” of its own. In addition to offering a nearly fully customizable UI and their usual performance enhancements, they have included user-friendly overclocking support that automatically disables itself in the event that you were a tad over-zealous in your clock speed ambitions. Furthermore, this is the first custom ROM on the platform to support all four variants of the device—no matter if it’s a WiFi-only, 3G GSM, 3G CDMA, or 4G LTE device.

The feature highlights, according to the developers, are as follows:

  • Tiamat 3.0.5 gpu overclocked kernel
  • AOSP 4.0.3 based rom
  • Busybox
  • USB OTG support
  • Automatic mounting of FAT32 thumb drives
  • Automatic mounting of NTFS thumb drives with write support (doesn’t work for everyone)
  • Enable / Disable stock ICS status bar settings
  • Enable / Disable EOS ics status bar settings
  • Enable / Disable Battery percentage text in the status bar
  • Enable / Disable battery icon in the status bar
  • Enable / Disable rotation on the lockscreen
  • User friendly overclocking settings that will detect if the tablet has restarted too often, and disables the overclocking
  • Enable / Disable the automatic brightness to decrease the brightness level
  • Enable / Disable the charging light
  • Define Rotation angles (Full, 90 Deg, 180 Deg, 270 Deg)
  • Face unlock
  • Face unlock retry button on the lockscreen.
  • Last accessed time and date in Browser history
  • Titanium Backup included in the rom
  • Rom manager included in the rom

Xoom owners of all flavors can get their fill by visiting the ROM thread.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
