ParanoidAndroid Hybrid ROM Ports for One V GSM and CDMA

Paranoid Android is one of the more colorful ROMs that has been making its way around the forums in recent months. We’ve brought you news of the hybrid ROM coming out on several devices already, but the ROM seems to be heading everywhere. It is a very unique ROM, the first truly hybrid phone / tablet ROM experiences for most devices. Unlike ROMs that have tablet mode, ParanoidAndroid uses P.A.L. and P.A.D. (Per-App-Layout and Per-App-Density, respectively) to allow users to set each application’s DPI and layout.

The latest devices to get this unique ROM are the CDMA and GSM versions of the HTC One V. The first of the two versions to get it was the GSM version, posted by XDA Senior Member 1ceb0x, with the help of a few others. From there, XDA Forum Member salvy512 ported it to the CDMA version with the help of other members and devs.

Both ROMs are quite stable, with only a couple of issues. For the CDMA version, the only two things that don’t work properly are Bluetooth—which doesn’t work at all—and a notification light bug that only happens while the device is charging. For the GSM, the only issue is the Bluetooth issue. The reason for the Bluetooth issue is because it happens to be a bug on the local CM9 port, upon which the ROMs were based. Once CM9 gets Bluetooth fixes, the ParanoidAndroid ROMs should join the Bluetooth party as well. If you can handle not having Bluetooth, the ROMs are stable enough to use as daily drivers, and anyone who wants to check out the unique hybrid mode should definitely do so. It is pretty cool.

For additional info, check out the CDMA thread or the GSM thread.

Google Photos ‘Unlimited’ Storage Reportedly Being Capped

When Google Photos was announced, many of us thought very highly of the idea. It seemed like Google had taken what they learned from G+ Photos and added some extra touches to polish the experience, making it something that more people were likely to actually utilize. Now however, the much-lauded 'Unlimited Storage' element may not be quite what it seemed. Here's what we can gather so far...   Reports have come in from multiple G+ and Reddit users who have attempted to back up a...
