Jelly Bean Alpha for the Sensation and Amaze 4G

The march of Jelly Bean 2012 is in full swing. In the last week, we brought you Jelly Bean-related news on such devices as the ASUS Transformer TF300T, the Acer Iconia A100 and A500, and an XDA Developer TV roundup. The pace is truly awesome. The latest devices to the latest and greatest version of Android are a couple of T-Mobile HTC devices—the HTC Sensation and the HTC Amaze 4G.

XDA Forum Member sahil_lombar with the help of others, brings Jelly Bean AOSP to the Sensation. HTC Amaze users get the goods thanks to XDA Recognized Developer sportsstar89, who actually brought AOSP in the form of CyanogenMod 10. Both ROMs are alpha releases, which means there’s a pretty decent list of things working and not working. For now, things not working on the Sensation include:

Radio
Wifi
Audio
Google Now
Camera
Light Sensors
Button and Notification lights
and many other things

And for the HTC Amaze:

* Wi-Fi (Got borked again)
* GPS
* GSM
* Camera

The developers for both ROMs are working to get the issues resolved, so users only need to have patience until the work is completed. While both ROMs are stable enough to play with, neither one is ready to be used a daily driver just yet. Until then, though, sit back and enjoy the development.

For full feature lists and more details, users can either head to the HTC Sensation JB thread or the HTC Amaze 4G JB thread.

Best of Matias Duarte – “Ask Me Anything” Summary

Matias Duarte, VP of Design at Google, is perhaps one of the most prolific software designers of recent times: Material Design, the highest exponent of Android beauty, is Matias' own brainchild. Without him and his creation, the biggest Android update of all time wouldn't have been what it was and our favorite platform would still carry a look that many deemed outdated even before Material Design was shown. With an internet following that spawned several internet memes and even a weird community,...
