More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative. However, there are still a few OEMs (we're looking at you, Samsung) that have preferred to keep things a bit more traditional. Tell us which way you prefer and why.
LG P350 and Optimus 3D Receive CM10 Ports
If developers have proven anything since the release of Android 4.1, it’s that it can run on just about any device. Recently, two LG devices have gotten the port. The first is the LG Optimus 3D, which is a dual-core device. The other is the much older LG Optimus Me P350, with it’s 600 MHz single-core processor.
XDA Senior Member keyur2maru released the unofficial CM10 port for the Optimus Me P350. The Optimus 3D received an official release from the CM Team, announced by Ricardo Cerqueira. The thread is maintained by XDA Senior Member mivv.
Both ROMs work fairly well. The official release doesn’t have a working or not working list, but users are reporting some occasional network loss, some issues with root, and a few other minor issues. The CM Team is releasing nightlies, so expect the issues to lessen over time. The P350 port is a little more rough around the edges. The current list of things not working includes:
Not Working or Partially Working:
Reboots When End Button is Pressed [We’re Trying] Sensors [Will be Fixed] Panorama
Native Usb Tethering – use an external app
Reboots When End Button is Pressed
Panorama – It Captures But it is Blank Image
So it’s not daily driver material yet, but it’s getting there.

While there are frequent unexplained changes and pushes to Google's AOSP repositories, an interesting-looking new branch has been pushed out recently, called "master-soong". Taking a look at the changes made to the manifest repository (which is used to specify the repositories to be downloaded when building Android), it appears there are some new repositories making an appearance. Of note here are new prebuilt repositories for Go, and Ninja. Go is a programming language, created by Google, which compiles to produce...
There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...
