Jelly Bean for the Epic 4G Touch and Flyer / EVO View 4G

It would be redundant to mention yet again how prolific the spread of Jelly Bean has been over the last month and a half. With devices old and new, low spec’d and high spec’d alike, getting usable ports, it seems like almost any device is capable of running Google’s latest and greatest. To add to the already long list of devices, the HTC Flyer and EVO View 4G along with the Samsung Epic 4G Touch now have their own Jelly Bean ports.

The EVO View 4G and Flyer ports were both created by XDA Senior Member Dexter_nib with the help of several other members and developers. The Epic 4G Touch port was made by XDA Recognized Developer Sbrissen, who also helped out with AOSP ICS. Despite being early releases, both ROMs are surprisingly stable. For the EVO View/Flyer release, the following has been reported as not working.

- Bluetooth
– Videorecorder
– video hardware accelerated playback (use included MX player for most compatibility issues)

That’s not that too bad, and if you’re not a huge user of these features, then this actually could be used as a daily driver for you. The Epic 4G Touch release is equally as impressive as there are also only a few issues:

- LOS (this is kernel related and I am still trying to track it down)
– Random screen wakes
– Camcorder effects cause FC

Aside from these minor issues, this could also be used as a daily driver. Early adopters of the Epic Touch should be more than used to LOS (Loss Of Signal) problems by now, as that has been a bug since the device’s release. It is nice to see some more stable Jelly Bean builds being released, allowing  users to better experience the latest version of Android.

For more details, head on over to the EVO View 4G thread, the Flyer thread, or the Epic Touch thread.

Send Links to Any Nearby Device with CaastMe

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...

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
