Ice Cream Sandwich Leak for Epic 4g Touch Officially Booting

Samsung has a history with Sprint phones and updates to new versions of Android. Just ask the owners of the original Samsung Epic 4g how long it takes to get a new version of Android.

With the sequel, the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4g Touch, Samsung seems to have learned their lesson and appear to be working quite fervently on getting Ice Cream Sandwich to its entire Galaxy S II line up. While nothing official has come through the channels yet, XDA Recognized Developer shabbypenguin, also of the Android Creative Syndicate, has gotten a hold of a leak dubbed FB09. FB09 has a special quality about it as it is the first evidence of Ice Cream Sandwich for the Sprint phone.

Early attempts were rough, as the ROM was not bootable. However, shabbypenguin was able to fix those bugs and now users can check out a rough draft of what’s to come for the Epic Touch. Thus far, it’s been observed that the MMS app seems a little off and the Samsung Keyboard will force close. There are likely to be other bugs, as this is an early build, but at least users can check it out.

For download links, information and a nifty how-to install video from Android Creative Syndicate guru qbking77, you can find all that and more in their thread over at the Android Creative Syndicate forums. As always, perform a backup before attempting to install, just in case something goes wrong.

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...
