Jelly Bean Lands on the HTC EVO 4G

Jelly Bean is everywhere. Coming down from Google like sweet, jelly bean-like raindrops all over XDA, the newest version of Android is being enjoyed on devices as old as the HTC HD2 and as new as the Samsung Galaxy S III, and its US Variants. Now, the now legendary HTC EVO 4G is getting its own taste of Jelly Bean. This adds yet another old timer to the list of devices running Jelly Bean.

The EVO 4G Jelly Bean ROM, which is an unofficial CM10 port, comes to us from XDA Recognized Contributor Mazda along with the rest of Team Dirt and quite a number of other contributors. The ROM is surprisingly stable with only a few known issues, including:

NO Camera
– NO 4G (did you really expect that to work???)
– NO Netflix, Hulu Plus, HBO or whatever you guys watch….is not working!
– “System” in settings FCs (possible fix in v1.2)
– A few other things, just let me know

Given that 4G has been a problem on EVO 4G AOSP ROMs since the days of CyanogenMod 6, that issue was more than expected by EVO 4G users. The rest are typical of the various Jelly Bean ports going around on different devices. If you can live without camera, video playback, and 4G, then this ROM could perhaps be a daily driver. If not, it certainly won’t be too long before these issues get fixed.

What’s Next for Samsung and Its Flagships?

If we were to say that the Galaxy S6 was a leap of faith made by Samsung, we wouldn't be too wrong. After all, the device marked a definite change in how Samsung perceived the market and its own place in it, as it stood amongst the signs of decline which started with the critical reception of the Galaxy S5. To recap, the Samsung Galaxy S5 was criticized heavily for feeling more like a toy, rather than a premium flagship...
