Meizu MX’s Flyme OS Ported to the AT&T Galaxy S II

When the Meizu MX was first released, many talked about its unique FlymeOS. It’s an OEM skin similar to Samsung’s TouchWiz and HTC’s Sense. It has several fun features and a very nice looking interface. Unfortunately, it was only available on the Meizu MX. It has now been ported to the AT&T Samsung Galaxy S II.

XDA Senior Member estabien has begun porting Flyme OS to the AT&T Galaxy S II. It’s a slow process, as it usually is when porting OEM skinned ROMs. There are a few things working, but many bugs as well. Here’s the list of things working and not working:

What works:
Wifi
Data/etc.
Both cameras
SMS
Most everything

What doesn’t work:
Cannot hang up on call (Have to reboot in order to hang up)
Some system settings FC
Doesn’t read SD card
Music Player doesn’t display music
Please report if anything else doesn’t work!

The essentials (data, signal, SMS) do work, but there are a lot of things that still don’t. So this likely won’t be anyone’s daily driver right now. It’ll definitely be fun to test. But for many, it may be best to wait a few more updates for some of the bugs to get squashed.

If this looks like something you’d like to try out, go to the original thread.

Open War for Open Android: Antitrust for Cyanogen?

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...

What Do You Do with All of Your Old Photos?

Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us. Furthermore, since our smartphones are always with us, the majority of us end up taking tons of photos throughout the lifespan of our devices. But what happens to all the old photos you take? Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
