Official CM10 Preview for the International Galaxy S III i9300

Jelly Bean source was only recently released to AOSP, and now we’re beginning to see Android 4.1.1 ports popping up on some popular handsets, with even the venerable HD2 receiving a port. The CyanogenMod team recently made a statement on Google+ regarding their efforts to import Jelly Bean into their code repositories, and stated that CM10 would be coming in the future to most, if not all, devices that could run ICS. And now, as luck would have it, CM10 is now available for a few devices in preview form, including the Samsung Galaxy S3 i9300.

TeamHacksung has released a preview build for the i9300 that gives users a little taste of CM10 in its infancy. XDA Recognized Developer XpLoDWilD posted this disclaimer:

This is a PREVIEW : CyanogenMod 10 is nowhere near ready to be used as a daily driver (lots of features still have to be merged), and same is the device support. CHECK THE KNOWN ISSUES LIST BEFORE THINKING ABOUT POSTING.

Those known issues are as follows:

- FMradio, heh!
– Camera is unstable, though taking pics should work
– Wi-Fi tethering is semi-broken

The steps to flash this preview, if you are of a mind to do so, are pretty standard for any CM build with a few minor exceptions:

- Make sure to run CM9 so you know you have everything
– Download the zip
– Download Gapps
– Install the update zip from recovery
– Install gapps
– WIPE DATA/FACTORY RESET
– Reboot

Visit the original thread to read more about the effort and jump in!

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.

New AOSP Branch Details Potential Build System Upgrades?

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...

Send Links to Any Nearby Device with CaastMe

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...
