Jelly Bean for the GSM EVO 3D, Xperia Play and Optimus GT540

The spread of Jelly Bean across XDA would be alarming if it weren’t so wonderful. Devices old and new alike are enjoying the latest and greatest from Google to some capacity. Some of the more recent devices to get Jelly Bean are the GSM HTC EVO 3D, LG Optimus GT540, and the Sony Xperia PLAY.

While the GSM EVO 3D is following its CDMA sibling and the Xperia PLAY is following its X8 and X10 siblings, the Optimus GT540 is perhaps the lowest spec’d device to get Jelly Bean thus far. With a 600MHz processor, 156MB of RAM, and just 139MB of user-available storage space, getting Jelly Bean on the Optimus GT540—which also has a smaller development atmosphere than most, if not all, other devices we’ve covered that got Jelly Bean—is truly an impressive feat. For the GSM EVO 3D, Jelly Bean was posted by XDA Senior Member Ubuntuz. The Xperia PLAY was the work of nickholtus with some help and the Optimus GT540 was done up by XDA Forum Member DevSwift1.

As you might have guessed, these builds are all on the experimental or preview stages of development. With bugs on all 3 ROMs ranging from camera and WiFi issues to data not working and broken hardware codecs, none of these ROMs are quite stable enough to use as an everyday ROM. That is not to say that they aren’t fun to play with. They make it easy to check out some of the features of Jelly Bean. Just make sure you have a Nandroid backup handy.

Samsung Galaxy S6 To Receive Major Camera Update

When the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were launched, they became the prime focus for all discussions as Samsung took a break on their traditional design philosophy and opted for something that their flagship lineup hadn't seen before. 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...
