IceColdFeats Collection of Tweaks for Galaxy Tab 10.1 on ICS

With the unofficial release of ICS ROMs on tablets, end users have been treated to some Ice Cream Sandwich goodness much sooner than would be delivered by their tablet OEMs. These ROMs allow us to experience ICS on a larger screen and see if it really is the hybrid tablet/phone OS that Google says it is before we would otherwise be able. So far, so good for most users, but as tablet are still a relatively uncharted territory when compared to phones, there is always even room for even more development.

This is why there are a plethora of mods and tweaks. Thanks to XDA Senior Member tommrazek01, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 now has a collection of previously created user interface mods that help the overall experience feel more complete. The tweaks come in the form of a recovery-flashable update.zip and it offers improvements such as:

Beats Audio (Yes, the real beats audio. There is no icon, but when you listen to music, you will see the huge ()difference. I don’t take credit for this, it is thanks to a Galaxy S Port.) New Wallpapers By Asus Trebuchet! The CM Launcher now availiable for AOSP! (Just remove the /system/app folder if you do not need i) Some performance tweaks (No benchmarks just yet.) Smooth Scrolling

So it’s a variety pack, adding a little bit to just about everything from the CM9 launcher to new wallpapers and Beats Audio. As always, don’t forget to make a backup first, and be sure to follow all the instructions accordingly. To get started, hit up the original thread.

I/O Summary: Google Cardboard Virtual Reality

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
