Official Jelly Bean Rolls Out to the International Galaxy S3

Owners of Samsung’s flagship device have been metaphorically pacing back and forth along the hallways of XDA in anticipation of an official Jellybean release for some time now. Well it seems that as of this morning, the wait is over, and an official update to Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean for the Samsung Galaxy S3 began rolling out to users in Poland. It’s now online and available from a stock firmware thread maintained by XDA Recognised Developer faryaab.

As this release is intended for Poland, be warned that flashing it will alter the CSC of your device if this is not your default region. Installation is performed via Odin as you’d expect, and it’s being reported that existing root methods such as CF Root will work on the update. However, a pre rooted version has also been made available if you are so inclined.

While this is undoubtedly great news for I9300 owners, some of the responses to this release seem to suggest that it isn’t particularly polished for an official release and contains many of the bugs present in the last leaked version. Lacking an international S3, I cannot comment on that, but I’m sure a few bugs won’t stop many of you flashing this.

Head on over to the original thread for more details.

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.

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...
