SGSII i9100 Joins i9100G, Gets Jelly Bean
Jelly Bean is seemingly spreading like the plague—no matter what you do, someone finds a way to give it to your device. However, unlike the plague, we actually look forward to Jelly Bean spreading.
We told you a few days ago how the Galaxy SII i9100G (OMAP) had received Jelly Bean. Now thanks to XDA Forum Member kalgecin, the original, Exynos-bearing variant of the Samsung Galaxy S II is now welcome at the Jelly Bean party.
So far the ROM is in the early Alpha stages of development and features:
[-] Bluetooth (reconnects sometimes)
[-] H/W accelerator
[-] ADB debugging doesn’t start automatically if switched on with cable pluged in
As always when using an Alpha stage, source build remember that there are unexpected bugs that will creep up and cause problems. Also, as this is not a daily driver ROM, the developer request that you submit logcats and know how to use ODIN (or Heimdall) in case the ROM fails to boot.
If you’re a developer looking to contribute and get this bad boy fully functional or a user looking to be a tester, head on over to the original thread and give it a go.

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this. But a particularly...
The first gen of Android One devices to be launched in India in September 2014 were decent starter smartphones, featuring budget specs and a promise of fast updates. However, the phones did not pick up as big a response as Google hoped. Now, as per a report by The Economic Times, it appears that Google is rethinking their strategy towards Android One in India. The first gen Android One devices focused on first time smartphone users, but were flawed in...
