Previously I talked about the Pebble Time Kickstarter, and why I thought it was the most practical smartwatch to buy in 2015, and that I decided to be an early backer on Kickstarter. Well as of this morning an interesting development has come from my - currently - favorite smartwatch company. They will release the Pebble Time Steel variant alongside the regular Pebble, instead of say a whole release cycle down the road. The accompanying announcement along with the Steel,...
Galaxy Note 10.1 Receives First Custom ROMs
A few weeks ago, we announced the creation of the Galaxy Note 10.1 forums. One day later, we announced ClockworkMod had been unofficially ported to the Note 10.1. We can now also announce that the first custom ROMs for the device have made an appearance. At the time of writing, there are 3 custom ROMs currently available in the forums.
XDA Senior Member zedomax brings us HighOnAndroid “TrainWreck” ROM. Based on European XXALG5 firmware, the intention of the ROM is to maintain a stock look. It keeps TouchWiz intact in order to maintain all stock features, such as S-Pen functionality.
Next up, XDA Senior Member safariking has released CleanRom. This ROM is also based on XXALG5 Firmware, but the devs intention is to remove as much of the Samsung Apps and bloatware as possible, in order to maintain a “clean ROM”.
Finally, XDA Member hani1980 has given us DR.AKRIM_ROM. This ROM is based on Indian N8000DDALH1 firmware. The dev has included full RTL Arabic support and Samsung Arabic keyboard.
All three ROMs contain the standard tweaks such as being Deodexed and Zipaligned, as well as each having their own unique tweaks by the individual devs. If you want some custom ROM goodness on your Glalaxy Note 10.1, head over to one of the threads:

The LG G Pro Lite D680 is a budget phone that was released in 2013 alongside the LG Optimus G Pro, LG's 2013 flagship device. Unfortunately, it hasn't received much development attention so far… but XDA Recognized Developer laufersteppenwolf has now released an unsecured boot.img along with a CWM recovery. This is despite the bootloader being locked (which means there's no need for you to void your warranty!), and marks the first step towards custom ROM and kernel development for...
Samsung's latest and greatest, the Galaxy S6 Edge, is drastically different from any Samsung flagship that has come before it.
