Jelly Bean Leak for the HTC One X

We’ve been keeping you up to date on all of the leaks for the various versions of the Samsung Galaxy S III. Many may be wondering where the HTC love is. Recently the HTC One X received its own Jelly Bean leak.

The Jelly Bean leak was shared by XDA Recognized Developer baadnewz. Unfortunately, it isn’t for your average flasher. Due to an issue with updating HBoot with S-On, the ROM has been released for developers only. So far, a number of members and developers have tested it out and have concluded that a lot of things aren’t working properly. This includes, in many cases, data and cell signal.  Work is being done to find a way to flash the leak without losing the old, unlocked bootloader.

XDA Senior Member shadehh has taken this opportunity to write up a short FAQ on the arduous task of installing it if you really, really want to. Included in the FAQ is information about compatible CIDs and a short pros and cons list on whether updating to the leak is a good idea.

As with any leak, it is only a matter of time before developers sort out the nonsense and custom ROMs start appearing. So if you’re a little iffy on the leak now, you just have to wait until developers can get something more stable released. For more info, check out either the Dev Only thread or the FAQ thread.

Sunday Debate: Are Smaller Bezels Better or Worth It?

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience.   With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
