Samsung Rugby Pro Gets Official TWRP, Rugby Smart Gets CM9, CM10

Even the less popular devices need some lovin’ too. The Samsung Rugby Pro and Samsung Rugby Smart aren’t the most well known smartphones on XDA. However, that hasn’t prevented developers from hacking then and releasing some good stuff. Now, the Rugby Pro has official TWRP, and the Rugby Smart has CM9 and CM10 ports.

XDA Senior Member kemonine96, who has done much work with XBMC, has released various treats for the two devices. The most recent offerings are TWRP for the Rugby Pro, and CM9 and CM10 for the Rugby Smart.

For the Rugby Pro, it’s been accepted by Team Win as an officially supported TWRP device. That’s pretty good news for a lesser known device. With TWRP, users can flash whatever they want in style. For more info, check out the Rugby Pro thread.

The CM9 and CM10 ROMs are both still in their alpha stages, but have a surprisingly small number of things wrong with them. Currently, CM9 has the following issues:

Untested
Device encryption

Current issues
Display auto-brightness toggle — Is not possible, the Rugby Smart lacks a light sensor
2G data only toggle does nothing
No device serial number shown — prop:ril.serialnumber

And for CM10, the issues are as follows:

Untested
Camera Panorama
Tethering (BT/USB/WiFi)

Current issues
SD Card swap (CM10 Limitation)
Orientation sensor

So while there are issues, all of the biggest features like camera, Bluetooth, and WiFi actually work. So these could be used as daily drivers. Both ROMs are being actively worked on, so issues will be fixed in future releases.

For more details, check out the CM9 thread and CM10 thread.

CloudPlayer: DIY HiFi Music Streaming Solution

In our Helpful Guide to Music Streaming Services, we mentioned several different services that offer ways to stream catalogs of music directly to your device. While each service has their benefits and drawbacks, the common theme among them is to give you access to a vast library of music without the need to store your own, and charge you a monthly fee for the privilege. But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...
