Experimental CyanogenMod 10.1 for the Samsung Galaxy SII i9100G

Android 4.2 may have only been released a short time ago, but already this latest version is finding it’s way onto numerous devices thanks to the development community and its plain unwillingness to wait for official OEM updates. The latest device to be graced with a build of 4.2 is the Samsung Galaxy SII i9100G, and it comes in the form of an official version of Cyanogenmod 10.1.

XDA Elite Recognized Developer codeworkx wasted no time in getting an experimental build of CM10.1 up and running on the device. The key word there is experimental. In the developers own words “Use it like it is or leave it.”  This is probably not daily driver material yet, so unless you absolutely must be on the absolute bleeding edge, you may want to hold off flashing for a while. Who am I kidding? Of course you’re going to flash it. Just make sure to read the thread beforehand, so you know what issues you’re likely to encounter.

As mentioned above, this is for the i9100G and the i9100G only. That’s the Galaxy S II variant sporting a Texas Instruments OMAP CPU and PowerVR GPU. This ROM is not suitable for flashing on other Galaxy S II variants, so those of us with such a device will continue waiting patiently for now. For those of you who do own this device, all the information you need can be found in the original forum thread.

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...
