HTC Sensation Gets Unofficial Alpha CM10.1
Jelly Bean seems to have found its way to many/most devices on XDA. Since not too many manufacturers are willing or able to provide us with the most recent updates due to a slew of reasons, we need to get somewhat creative in order to stay on top of the fast paced and never-slowing tech world of ours. The time for CM10 has come and gone, with many devices running almost perfect JB AOSP ROMs, but what’s next? What else do we have to look forward to?
Well, as you may be aware, Google has released an incremental update under the same code name, which takes the OS to version 4.2, and very recently a minor bug fix release, which takes it to 4.2.1. Good folks in our forums, like XDA Recognized Developer bruce2728 have decided to take the plunge and start off on the next best thing: CM10.1. This new ROM, which was ported to the HTC Sensation is based on 4.2.1, and as you may have noticed from this article’s title, it is in a very alpha stage. What this means is that you will likely experience tons of bugs and non-functional features. The dev states that so far, camera, Bluetooth, and audio are missing in this build, but you should be able to get most other things working properly, such as WiFi, GSM radio, SD card access, touch screen, and more.
Again, please do not try this unless you are ready to live / cope with bugs that are yet to be fixed. Having said that, if you do take it for a spin, please be sure to share your feedback in the shape of bug reports, logcats, etc. with the dev. Happy flashing and welcome to the future yet again.
This is an early build of CyanogenMod 10.1 Android 4.2.1 for the HTC Sensation

Did you watch Apple's VP draw on his wrist during the Apple Watch announcement and wonder "why can't my Wear watch do that?" In typical XDA fashion, one enterprising forum member has brought similar functionality to Android Wear with a twist; it works on phones and watches alike, with other platforms on the way! The app is called Pinsy, and its release debut is a strong proof of concept with plenty of room to grow. You may remember the developer behind this project, XDA...
Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
