GSM and CDMA HTC One V Receive Unofficial CM10 Ports

Very often, devices have multiple releases. It is not uncommon for the variants to have hardware differences, as is the case on the international HTC One X and the AT&T version. Often times, devices also feature different radios than their sibling device, as is the case with GSM and CDMA variants of the same phone. And since you generally can’t just flash one device’s development work on the other, there can be a gap at times between developer support on the devices. This doesn’t seem to be a problem for the HTC One V, as both versions have recently gotten unofficial ports of CyanogenMod 10. This is very much like when they got ICS Paranoid Android at the same time.

CyanogenMod 10 for the CDMA One V was released by XDA Recognized Contributor jmztaylor, while the GSM version is being handled by XDA Recognized Contributor Lloir. While there are different developers on each device, they’ve actually been working together along with a number of other developers and members to make the ROMs as stable as possible.

As we’ve been wont to point out, most Jelly Bean releases have been alphas or previews and haven’t been really stable enough for daily use. This is where the One V deviates, as both ROMs are surprisingly stable. Other than a few bugs here and there, the biggest issues reported have been the LCD backlight never turning off and the camcorder not working. Those are also the ones reported on just the CDMA version. If you don’t need camcorder and don’t mind the backlight issue, then these can be used daily. For more info, check out the CDMA One V thread or the GSM One V 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...
