OnePlus has been teasing a new product for a while now, hailing it as a game-changer which isn't a tablet or a smartwatch. While speculations were rife about what this game-changing device could be, the company did confirm that the product was indeed a drone in their recent AMA. A tweet and vine from OnePlus shed some more light on this product, which was confirmed to be named as DR-1 (dr-one, get it?) and was to reach stores "next month". In a...
Lewa, Joy, and Mokee OSes Ported to the Galaxy 3
Not too long ago, we brought you a tutorial on porting JoyOS and LewaOS to any Android device. The process involved using CyanogenMod 7 as a base ROM and then porting the proprietary files, folders and libraries. It wasn’t overly complicated, but it did involve some work. Using that tutorial, XDA Senior Member pratikmore was able to successfully port not only Lewa and Joy OS but also Mokee OS to the Samsung Galaxy 3.
The ROMs are installed as any other ROM. Users simply need to wipe data, cache, and dalvik-cache before flashing the ROM. There are a few quirks that users may need to deal with. As pratikmore explains:
After installation please call from other mobile to your,then you can hear the voice.
Use espier launcher because joy home have blurry and big icons.
Users have reported some calling issues. Occasionally, users aren’t always able to hear the person they are calling and vice versa. This can be a serious problem, but it is not one that everyone is having. Pratikmore is making an effort to find out why this is happening and fix it. The only other bugs flashers will run into will be the inherited bugs of the CyanogenMod 7 base ROM. Despite the issues, it’s new options for compulsive ROM flashers.
For download links for all three ROMs and more, check out the original thread.
