Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...
Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G Gets CyanogenMod 9 and 10, Exhilarate Gets CM10
The last time we brought you news on the Samsung Galaxy Blaze 4G, it was getting root and recovery. Since then, developers have been working to make it a more fun to device for flashers. After a few months, the Blaze 4G not only received CM9 but also CM10. On the same day, no less.
XDA Senior Member erikmm ported CyanogenMod9 to the Blaze 4G. Despite it being a first release, it is perfectly stable with the only known issue is that rotation is a bit laggy. Anyone looking for AOSP-based ICS on the Blaze 4G now has a good ROM to try out.
For unofficial CyanogenMod10, XDA Senior Member dr4stic did the heavy lifting. Unlike its CM9 sibling, CM10 does have quite a few issues. This includes some random rebooting, CM Updater freezes, and a reboot bug that is triggered by notifications due to a non-CM driver being used for the Blaze 4G buttons. Most of these issues are slated to be fixed in future updates, but for now this probably isn’t daily driver material due to the reboots.
Consequently, the CM10 port to the Blaze 4G also works on the Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate. Also developed by dr4stic, the ROM just needed a couple of kernel tweaks. Presumably, the same number of things are wrong since it is essentially the same ROM for both devices. XDA Forum Member ktempleton is maintaining a thread specifically for the Exhilarate folks here.

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
All of us here at XDA appreciate just how far Android has come. The incredible flagships of today come packed with bleeding edge technology and are hard to complain about, but it wasn't always like this. Tell us about the worst Android phone you've ever owned, and what made it so dreadful.
