LG G2x Gets CM10-Based ROM, Pure AOSP 4.1.2 ROM Compiled for HTC One X+

While the momentum on Android 4.1 has slowed and focus has shifted to Android 4.2, it hasn’t stopped developers from bringing it to devices that didn’t have it before. Even if the device already has ICS or Jelly Bean, many users prefer the vanilla flavor of Android. If it doesn’t, then it’s a welcome update they’d probably never get otherwise. Two new devices have gotten AOSP Android 4.1 recently: the T-Mobile LG G2x and the HTC One X+.

XDA Forum Member adampk provided the release for the G2x. It’s based on CM10 and It’s pretty stable. Most of the major issues have been solved such as camera, hardware acceleration, and WiFi. However, there are still some issues being worked on, including RIL and battery indicator. It’s had several updates, and users haven’t reported much else wrong other than what’s listed. However, the big news is that adampk won’t be releasing any more CM10-based updates. Starting with the next update, the ROM will be based on CM10.1. This is great news for G2x users who don’t want to be left behind. It may bring some new issues, but at least it’ll be fully up to date.

XDA Recognized Contributor and Developer Lloir has released a pure AOSP ROM for the HTC One X+. This is actually a very simple ROM because it doesn’t have any influences of other AOSP-based ROMs. How basic does Lloir make this ROM? It doesn’t have any add-ons whatsoever. This even includes Superuser. If you want root, or any other mod, you have to add it before you flash it. Currently, the only thing not working is Bluetooth with headsets, so this is actually a pretty stable release for One X+ owners.

If you’d like to check out the G2x ROM, go to the G2x thread. For One X+ users, head to the One X+ thread.

RAVPower RP-WD02 – Android Accessories Review

There are so many Power Banks out there. However, they are not all the same. Some sacrifice weight for capacity. Others do the opposite.

In this episode of XDA TV, Producer TK reviews the RAVPower RP-WD02 Wireless Filehub & Portable Travel Router. This device is the successor to the RP-WD01...

A Look at the Telegram+ Situation

Most of this article doesn't only apply to Telegram+ -- it just happens to be an example that got a lot of coverage elsewhere, with many authors or commentators putting the full blame on Google, Telegram, the Telegram+ developer or even WhatsApp Inc (eh?). In this article, we'll try to look at the different aspects to provide a clear view of what actually happened, and what can (and hopefully will) improve with regards to developers in general and the Play...

Multi Boot: The Fall of Nandroid?

Ever since custom recoveries and roms became popular, nandroid backups have been the fall back method for all android enthusiasts, irrespective of their confidence levels. They allow easy backup and restore in case things go wrong, which happens invariably when a modification is being tested. With that being said, how relevant are Nandroid Backups to this day? Back in 2011, when the world of Android was being awed by the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S2, a little modification made its appearance...
