Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...
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.

Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us. Furthermore, since our smartphones are always with us, the majority of us end up taking tons of photos throughout the lifespan of our devices. But what happens to all the old photos you take? Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.
Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
