Sony’s Small Apps debuted on the James Bond’s very own Xperia T, allowing the superspy to do some quick and simple maths calculations and jot down some quick reminders among other functions while having other applications running simultaneously. Useful to many Xperia users who have had received ports to their Xperia devices running stock ICS firmwares such as the Xperia Arc, Xperia P, and Xperia Ion, Sony Small Apps have also been ported to devices from any manufacturer running CyanogenMod versions 9 and 10 and Paranoid Android version 2.55.

Even the less popular devices need some lovin’ too. The Samsung Rugby Pro and Samsung Rugby Smart aren’t the most well known smartphones on XDA. However, that hasn’t prevented developers from hacking then and releasing some good stuff. Now, the Rugby Pro has official TWRP, and the Rugby Smart has CM9 and CM10 ports.
XDA Senior Member kemonine96, who has done much work with XBMC, has released various treats for the two devices. The most recent offerings are TWRP for the Rugby Pro, and CM9 and CM10 for the Rugby Smart.
For the Rugby Pro, it’s been accepted by Team Win as an officially supported TWRP device. That’s pretty good news for a lesser known device. With TWRP, users can flash . . . READ ON »

You may remember we recently talked about the latest addition to CyanogenMod’s own suite of applications, the CM File Manager. This now sits proudly alongside the collection of other unique apps such as CM messaging and Apollo music player.
The file manager itself is pretty straight forward, and does exactly what you’d expect it to. The interface is clean and intuitive, all the functionality you would expect is there. And of course, you aren’t limited to simply browsing through the SD card. Full root access is supported. The only problem that some people have faced with this latest addition, however, is that the application was specifically made for use with CM10 and wasn’t compat. . . READ ON »

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. With only a 600 MHz processor and 512 MB RAM, it was never going to grab any headlines. This is what makes the recent high level of development activity on the device all the more impressive.
First up, XDA Senior Member oblikas brings us TWRP. The popular touchscreen driven recovery system allows you to do much more than flash a ROM. While it does work as intended, at version 22.214.171.124, it’s not updated to the latest version at the time of writing.

The last time we brought you news on the Samsung Galaxy Blaze 4G, it was getting root and recovery. Since then, developers have been working to make it a more fun to device for flashers. After a few months, the Blaze 4G not only received CM9 but also CM10. On the same day, no less.
XDA Senior Member erikmm ported CyanogenMod9 to the Blaze 4G. Despite it being a first release, it is perfectly stable with the only known issue is that rotation is a bit laggy. Anyone looking for AOSP-based ICS on the Blaze 4G now has a good ROM to try out.
For unofficial CyanogenMod10, XDA Senior Member dr4stic did the heavy lifting. Unlike its CM9 sibling, CM10 does have quite a few issues. This includes some random rebooting, CM Updater freez. . . READ ON »

Just a short time ago we brought you news that the Acro S was rooted. As the only Android phone out there that can swim, that’s great news. However, that is not all that developers had in store.
With the device rooted, developers could get started on creating the things that make XDA go ’round, including ROMs, kernels, hacks, mods, and others. As a result, the Sony Xperia Acro S now has CyanogenMod 9. Not impressed? Okay, it also received CyanogenMod 10 on the same day.
XDA Recognized Developer FXP, who regularly brings CM goodness to Xperia devices, released both builds. There are some issues with the unofficial CM10 build related to the camera, and the known issues on the CM9 build include:

A few days ago, we reported on the Motorola Droid impressively receiving a working Jelly Bean ROM. The Droid’s GSM successor, the Motorola Milestone 2 has now followed suit and been given a number of recent updates in the form of CyanogenMod 9 and CyanogenMod 10.
XDA Senior Member tezet started an Alpha version of CyanogenMod 9 several months ago in order to give users a taste of CM9 on their Milestone 2. Though labelled an alpha build, a large number of the standard functions of the phone are functional. However, video functions still remain problematic.

Way back in 2009, HTC released their third Android smartphone, the HTC Hero. The device shipped with Android 1.5 (Cupcake) or 2.1 (Eclair). Yes, that’s how long ago it was! In it’s day, it was a very popular device here on XDA, attracting a good number of developers. But as with all older devices, it has since slipped by the wayside and has become somewhat forgotten. For most people, that is.
Within the last few months, both the CDMA and GSM versions of the Hero have received both Ice Cream Sandwich and, more incredibly, Jelly Bean custom ROMs added to their arsenal.

While CyanogenMod 10 becomes the norm for many cutting-edge device, it appears that CyanogenMod 9.1 still has a trick up its sleeve when it debuts. In an industry first, CyanogenMod (a community-maintained Android ROM that isn’t directly affiliated with the AOSP) has partnered with NFC cloud-based payment company SimplyTapp to produce a new method of paying for real goods and services with NFC-capable devices.
Much like Google Wallet, Google’s NFC payment system, SimplyTapp allows users of NFC capable devices (flashed with CM 9.1) to store payment method information in the cloud. By installing the app and signing up for a card ($0 to $5 depending on the type of card, with fixed amount gift car. . . READ ON »
