More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative. However, there are still a few OEMs (we're looking at you, Samsung) that have preferred to keep things a bit more traditional. Tell us which way you prefer and why.
In-Call Audio Bug Fixed for CM10 on the LG Optimus 2X
The last time we brought you news about CyanogenMod 10 on the LG Optimus 2X, it was a patcher tool that fixed a myriad of issues. It helped CM10 fans fix a lot of issues with the ROM on the Optimus 2X, but it didn’t fix all of them. There is an audio bug during phone calls that prevents users from hearing people they’re talking to. Now, there may be a fix for it.
XDA Forum Member marsgod has released a patch that should fix the audio issue. As marsgod explains:
As you can see,
1. when the call start, the ril send
LGE_SET_CPATH 1 (if you make the call via headset, it will be LGE_SET_CPATH 2)
2. during the call session, the ril send
3. after ending the call , the ril send
so, I make a fix for the LGEInfineon.java(thank rmcc provide the original code, if I didn’t remenber wrong…), try to simulate this command sequence in it(not very accu, but I think it will be OK).
Unlike most patches that are released to XDA, this one actually isn’t something you can flash. Developers building ROMs from source have to slip that LGEInfineon.java into their source before compiling. Thus, only a few people have given this a try. So far, those who have added it to their build have said the patch is working pretty well, but more testing is needed. To help users test it out, XDA Senior Member lipisak has compiled a quick, dirty build for users to test on their devices.

While there are frequent unexplained changes and pushes to Google's AOSP repositories, an interesting-looking new branch has been pushed out recently, called "master-soong". Taking a look at the changes made to the manifest repository (which is used to specify the repositories to be downloaded when building Android), it appears there are some new repositories making an appearance. Of note here are new prebuilt repositories for Go, and Ninja. Go is a programming language, created by Google, which compiles to produce...
There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...
