POSTS TAGGED: CyanogenMod 10.1
Posted February 6, 2013 at 07:00 am by jerdog
When in the course of developing from source, it can become quite cumbersome to find that specific code reference or symbol that is either causing you problems or is the one thing you’re missing. You often find yourself browsing through line after line of code, hoping you don’t miss that snippet you’re looking for. This can get frustrating, and very tiresome, to say the least. With a new set of websites, your life might just get a little simpler.
BBQSauce is a website that allows you to search (and browse) the CM source tree for just about anything. Let’s say that I am working on telephony in CyangoenMod 10.1 and I want to find all instances of the TelephonyProperties string. I would go to t. . . READ ON »

Anyone who has spent time on XDA, or in the Android community at large, knows that when a device receives inclusion in CyanogenMod’s device tree, it is a beautiful day. This is because CM support ensures that the device will have a longer-than-manufacturer-intended lifespan. This of course depends on the manufacturer providing the tools and documentation necessary for development to occur. In many cases, OEMs do a pretty good job at publishing the documentation for instances in which they deviate from the reference design of a device’s board. Other times, however, manufacturers seem to go into brain fart-mode when it comes to this.

Lately, several devices have been getting Jelly Bean in form of CM 10 and CM 10.1 ports. Recently, we brought you unofficial CM10.1 ports for the Nook HD+ and Samsung Galaxy Fit. Now, the Galaxy Player 5 and Strait Talk Galaxy S2 have joined the club, thanks to unofficial ports by XDA Forum Members Mevordel and mr-cook, respectively.
The Straight Talk SGS2 port is based on Android 4.2.1, and should work fine as a daily driver. The developer also provides several other useful goodies in the thread, including ClockworkMod recovery, stock and AOSP modems, and the stock factory image and flashing instructions to get a clean start.

As the official and unofficial builds of CM10.1 continue to roll out, yet another two lower specced devices, which some may have dismissed as not being capable of receiving such an update, are now running unofficial builds. Never let it be said that such devices aren’t well supported here at XDA. The Samsung Galaxy Mini and Samsung Galaxy Ace can both now be updated to the latest version of CyanogenMod thanks to XDA Senior Members AntiBillOS and Wayland_ACE, respectively. Both ROMS are still in their early stages, so there will be bugs. However, there don’t seem to be too many deal-breakers.
The version for the Galaxy Mini currently suffers from a some graphical and tethering issues involvin. . . READ ON »
Huawei U81xx Gets CM9.1 and CM10, Samsung Rugby Smart Gets 3.0 Kernel, and Rugby Pro gets CM10 and Official 4.1

Update: It has come to our attention that inappropriate credit was given for the Huawei U81xx releases. The builds for the U8160/U8180 are actually based on original work by XDA Recognized Developer psyke83 in this thread. Similarly, work on the U8120 ultimately comes from XDA Senior Member joilaroi in this thread, and work on the U8150 comes from XDA Recognized Developer tilal6991 in this thread. Please refer to those threads for the original works.
Despite not having their own forums, there are a lot of obscure and unpopular devices with outstanding developer support. It’s generally assumed that the big name devices will get updates and AOSP, but when lesser known devic. . . READ ON »

In most cases, users are just happy to get an AOSP-based ROM on their devices. Which flavor of AOSP is usually inconsequential, as just having a vanilla experience is more important than which specific vanilla experience. After all, most people consider true Android to be far better than any OEM skin. The HTC One X+ now has not only Android 4.2 AOSP, but also CyanogenMod 10.1, and Android 4.2-based AOKP.
XDA Recognized Contributor and Developer Lloir has released the CM10.1 and pure AOSP ROMs for the One X+. Presumably because much of the same source and proprietary binaries are shared between these releases, the number of things wrong with both ROMs is pretty much the same. As Lloir states:
