Very recently, the CyanogenMod team released CM10 final to the community. However, many developers are still trying to get CM10 ported to their devices.

CM10 Lands on the Samsung Wave I and Wave II

Now onto something different, but not quite different: our mandatory serving of news coming from the pseudo forgotten areas of XDA. No, we are not talking about Off-Topic General, but rather the section for the infamous Samsung Wave and Wave II. Due to the ever increasing popularity of Google's Android OS, other smaller players essentially fall short in terms of expectations and support. Development costs become a financial burden, as opposed to a profitable venture. This was the case with...

CyanogenMod Hit by Rogue Team Member

Recently, the more astute among you may have noticed that the CyanogenMod project has begun to use the cyanogenmod.org domain rather than their previous .com version---a seemingly incongruous change, unfortunately driven by a malicious team member (turned rogue). SatanR1, to use his username, bought the .com domain name for CyanogenMod via his company, Metserve Enterprises, when they started their own site to host builds and infrastructure such as their build system and distribution network. At some point in the past few...

Development Galore on the HTC Explorer

The HTC Explorer was never one of the most popular smartphones to grace the pages of XDA. The Explorer is a low end device that was released in late 2011.

First up, XDA Senior Member oblikas brings us TWRP. The popular touchscreen driven recovery system allows you to do...
