Pre-Rooted Jelly Bean Leak for the Sprint Galaxy S III

The last time the Sprint Samsung Galaxy S III saw some Jelly Bean leak love, it came from T-Mobile’s leak in the form of a port. Recently a real Jelly Bean leak for the Sprint Galaxy S III was found, and owners can now use a leak meant for their device.

XDA Recognized Developer freeza shared the goods. The leak contains Jelly Bean 4.1.1 and it can be flashed like any other ROM. Freeza also took some liberties with the leaks to make them more flasher friendly. There is an odexed and a deodexed version available. Additionally, there have been a few other changes, including:

-Added Jelly Bean boot animation
-Modified kernel to adb shell @ root, bootanimation support, and a few other tweaks.
-Fixed root.

This should be safe to flash if you’re looking to keep root. So far, users have reported various minor issues with things such as MMS. However, aside from minor complaints, the leak is stable and no one has had any major issues with it. So if you want to try out Jelly Bean, here’s your chance. Here’s hoping the official release isn’t far behind.

For more details, check out the original thread.

[Thanks goes out to XDA Recognized Themer zanderman112 for the tip!]

But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
