ParanoidAndroid Released for the Nexus 10

It didn’t take long for developers to get their hands into the Google Nexus 10. There were bootloader unlocking tutorials and root guides basically upon release. ClockworkMod Recovery and TWRP have also been released for the device. Now, source-built ROMs have started showing up for it, including a favorite among XDAers, ParanoidAndroid.

XDA Recognized Developer jaybob413 has released the popular AOSP ROM for the Nexus 10. For those who don’t remember, ParanoidAndroid is a forked ROM (formerly from CyanogenMod, but now directly from AOSP) with a unique hybrid mode that lets users select per-app DPI and layout settings. Of course, it has Android 4.2 as the base, making it among the first ParanoidAndroid ROMs to do so.

There are some issues, though. As jaybob413 explains:

Before you go any further, 4.2 still has a quite a few bugs that need to be resolved by Google. You can read about some of them HERE
This is a blind build depending on the community for testing, so YMMV. Please make sure you have backups for anything you don’t want to lose.
Caution is advised. No promises this will not eat your device and take over your home.

So while users haven’t really reported any issues, this is definitely a work in progress and there could be issues. This on top of the issues that are already known in Android 4.2.

For the full details, check out the original thread.

T-Mobile Galaxy S6 Battery Woes

I've been using a T-Mobile Galaxy S6 since the device launched with T-mobile's service. However, over this past holiday weekend I knew I would be in an area without reliable T-Mobile service. So, I opened up T-Mobile's default "Device Unlock" app , pressed unlock, and placed my AT&T SIM card in the device. Everything seemed to be working fine: strong signal, great LTE, good voice calls - until day 3. On Sunday, my Galaxy S6 felt very hot to the touch and...

Earthquake Early Warning in Your Pocket

Probably all of us reading this have a smartphone in our pocket. For many of us, the smartphone has become our primary method of reading and writing e-mails, messaging, and browsing the web. Though proclamations that "smartphones have replaced the personal computer" typically fall on deaf ears, the statements aren't without merit. Indeed, smartphones have "replaced"—or more accurately, "displaced"—PC's in several areas that they have traditionally been dominant. But how many of you look into your pocket, or on your desk, and...
