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:

WORKING
[-] Boot
[-] Bluetooth (reconnects sometimes)
[-] GSM/DATA

NOT WORKING
[-] Sound
[-] WiFi
[-] 3G
[-] Camera
[-] 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.

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...
