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.

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...

Optimize Battery Life with This Useful App

Battery life is an important aspect of your smartphone, especially if you use it for more than just calls on the go. Since you're on XDA, you probably do and want to get the most out of your battery. Now, you can't magically expand its size but no matter how much its capacity is, you should make sure it's not draining faster than it should be. Your phone's processor runs at different frequencies when you're using the device. The CPU...

The OnePlus 2 & The Year of Smartphone Compromises

We are very close to entering the last third of 2015, and we have now seen many of the biggest flagship lines issue their latest iterations. Phones like the LG G4 and Galaxy S6 were some of the most anticipated devices in smartphone history, and the hype surrounding the M9 and OnePlus 2 had us discussing for weeks. But for the most part, the awe has vanished.   There is a feeling that virtually all of us at the XDA office...
