GSM and CDMA HTC One V Receive Unofficial CM10 Ports

Very often, devices have multiple releases. It is not uncommon for the variants to have hardware differences, as is the case on the international HTC One X and the AT&T version. Often times, devices also feature different radios than their sibling device, as is the case with GSM and CDMA variants of the same phone. And since you generally can't just flash one device's development work on the other, there can be a gap at times between developer support on...

Unofficial CyanogenMod 10 Port for the HTC G1

Some devices simply refuse to die, and the very first Android phone---the HTC G1---is one of them. It originally shipped with Android 1.0, and while it didn't get an official update after Android 1.6 Donut, it has been running every version that the developer community here at XDA has been throwing at it. And now, the device has CyanogenMod 10-based Android 4.1 Jelly Bean ported to it! Porting Jelly Bean to this device is a truly remarkable feat when you...

CyanogenMod Compiler Updated for CM10

XDA-Developers is about development and the free sharing of knowledge. Nothing else makes us happier than when a new developer steps out of the ranks of the user and seeks to contribute positively to the overall nature of the site. As we have said before, we strongly encourage that users follow the Cyanogen's advice on how to become an Android developer the right way. Too often we see users seek to take the quickest route towards "development," and that is ultimately a...

Unofficial CM10 for the ZTE Blade, Galaxy Ace, and Gio

It's always nice to see older and lower spec devices brought up to date and in line with the heavyweights. Those with ARM v6 devices such as the Samsung Galaxy Ace, Galaxy Gio or ZTE Blade, might not have ever expected to see your device running Ice Cream Sandwich, let alone Jelly Bean. That, however, is not how things work here at XDA. There's always somebody out there who refuses to accept that their device will not run the latest version...

CyanogenMod 10 Preview for the International Galaxy S II

It's here! Are you an international Galaxy S II owner watching in slight jealousy as your peers are given official preview builds into the next version of CyanogenMod? If so, that's understandable, as Jelly Bean certainly lives up to all of its buttery hype. For those with short attention spans, the international Galaxy S II has already seen some Jelly Bean action, but that experimental release lacked much functionality, and many users simply prefer running builds based on CyanogenMod. Luckily,...
