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.

Sony’s Emergence in The Middle: Is The Price Right?

Sony’s Electronics Division is not in its best days, and its smartphone products are seemingly an important cause of this. The Japanese giant’s Xperia line has been on the decline in terms of sales, and these past few months have been particularly damaging to the company due to the Xperia Z4’s market performance. Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
