Soft Key Enabler for HTC One X Running Jelly Bean

Most development work as of late has revolved around getting Jelly Bean onto various devices. As the rush of new Jelly Bean releases slows down, there are more and more mods for Jelly Bean being released. Granted, most of these are patches or fixes to issues on ROMs, but there are a few out there that contain theme elements or other miscellaneous tweaks. Now, HTC One X users running Jelly Bean have one to enable soft keys and disable capacitive buttons.

Created by XDA Senior Member kibaa12 with some help by Recognized Themer mattmanwrx, the mod is currently only compatible with CyanogenMod 10. It comes in the form of a custom recovery-flashable update.zip. Those wishing to revert simply need to flash the second file, which undoes all changes. Not all is perfect, though. As kibaa12 states:

HEADS UP: This Will Disable the Extra feature added in settings>system (tho once u have on screen why would you want to modify the hardware keys)

Glitch: pressing the disabled Capacative keys while trying to use touch on screen becomes unresponsive reverted the second you un touch the cap keys

These aren’t very big problems though. The screen freeze issue only occurs while the capacitive buttons are physically pressed, and it stops as soon as you stop touching the button. Otherwise, users have reported the mod working quite well.

For more details, check out the original thread.

Galaxy S6 Shipping with Different Camera Models

One of the Galaxy S6's most flaunted features is its spectacular camera, its 16MP with an f/1.9 aperture performing excellently in well-lit shots as well as low-light ones, with most reviews concluding that it trounces the camera on the iPhone 6 as well. However, all may not be right in Monde de la Samsung, as earlier today, XDA Member Bananaz came across a surprising detail about the shooter on the S6, and while the revelation is not necessary groundbreaking, it...

No, Android Apps on Windows Mobile Isn’t a Good Thing

As Symbian and Blackberry OS gradually gave way to Android and iOS towards the turn of the decade, the former leviathans found themselves struggling to hold their ground and when all seemed lost, they were forced to resort to extreme measures. While Nokia gave in to an acquisition by Microsoft, RIM's plans were more out-of-the-box and one of their efforts to save the platform whose existence was nigh on end was to build a runtime that allowed Blackberry devices to run apps built...
