Milestone 2 Receives Both CyanogenMod 9 And 10

A few days ago, we reported on the Motorola Droid impressively receiving a working Jelly Bean ROM. The Droid’s GSM successor, the Motorola Milestone 2 has now followed suit and been given a number of recent updates in the form of CyanogenMod 9 and CyanogenMod 10.

XDA Senior Member tezet started an Alpha version of CyanogenMod 9 several months ago in order to give users a taste of CM9 on their Milestone 2. Though labelled an alpha build, a large number of the standard functions of the phone are functional. However, video functions still remain problematic.

XDA Senior Member sfc3001 has taken tezet’s ROM as a base and continued the CyanogenMod 9 development with his own creation. Also labelled an alpha build, this ROM has only a small number of outstanding issues that are by no means show stoppers. These include WiFi tether and phone encryption.

Taking it one step further, tezet has also produced a Jelly Bean-based CyanogenMod 10 ROM for the Milestone 2. Development is very much active, with regular updates. Amazingly, there are no major issues that limit the ROM’s functionality.

These custom ROMs, as with all others, are a testament to the great work the developers here on XDA put into keeping these older devices alive with much newer flavors of Google’s Android operating system.

Galaxy S6 Shipping with Different Camera Models

One of the Galaxy S6's most flaunted features is its spectacular camera, its 16MP with an f/1.9 aperture performing excellently in well-lit shots as well as low-light ones, with most reviews concluding that it trounces the camera on the iPhone 6 as well. However, all may not be right in Monde de la Samsung, as earlier today, XDA Member Bananaz came across a surprising detail about the shooter on the S6, and while the revelation is not necessary groundbreaking, it...
