HTC Rezound Gets Pure AOSP Ice Cream Sandwich Port

The HTC Rezound has a number of Ice Cream Sandwich ROMs. Most of them also include HTC Sense or are based on HTC Sense framework (often called “senseless”). However, there isn’t a whole lot of AOSP love going on in the HTC Rezound forums. At least, there wasn’t a few days ago.

XDA Senior Member dmeadows013 has been working, released, and is now actively updating an Ice Cream Sandwich AOSP port for the Verizon’s beastly HTC phone. Based on the HTC Evo 3D port of ICS, the ROM is still only in beta and one can expect to have issues.

Here’s a list of what isn’t working:

-Data
-Phone
-Wifi
-Camera
-Bluetooth
-Texting

So it isn’t quite ready for prime time, daily driver usage yet but seeing a ROM available to flash is always an encouraging step forward for any phone development.

If this is something you want to check out, possibly help with or if you just wanna flash it and check it out, you can find all the information, download links, instructions (but not screen shots…yet) and much more in the ROMs original thread.

But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
