Official CM9 Getting Closer for Epic 4G Touch

cm9

With the title of “Worlds Longest Name for a Smartphone” already in the bag, the Sprint Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch (SSGS2E4GT) has become known as the SGS2’s Red-Headed Stepchild. Back when Samsung released the US variants of the SGS2 i9100, the E4GT was the first to appear. However, it has taken the longest to receive official ICS from Samsung. Coupled with taking longer to receive official CM9 love, and you have a device that seems to have been forgotten.

XDA Recognized Developer darchstar has done a great job, with the help of the rest of Team Epic CM, in continuing to work on CM9 for the E4GT without much help, naturally, from Sprint and Samsung. After months of leaks, Sprint sta. . . READ ON »

CyanogenMod 9 RC2 Released for Various Devices

logo

While the XDA Portal has seemingly been Jelly Bean, Jelly Bean, JELLY BEAN as of late, there is still much development work to be done on finalizing and perfecting builds based on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. After all, many would rather have a bullet-proof daily driver than an admittedly awesome preview build, which could potentially be a bit buggy.

As such, the CyanogenMod team has now released CyanogenMod 9 Release Candidate 2. Users can expect RC2 to be quite stable. It also adds support for new devices. As described on the CyanogenMod blog:

This release serves to stabilize CM9 as a product that you’d let your mom use, as well as add support for the following devices:

CM9

Although there’s talk of CM10 around the web, developers aren’t quite done yet getting CyanogenMod 9 on as many phones as possible. With the first release candidate for CM9 released, developers have a great code base to bring an AOSP-derived experience to other devices. One such build is for the Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE.

XDA Recognized Developer and Retired Senior Moderator dsixda is responsible for bringing CM9 to the highly underrated device. Despite not being the most popular version of the Galaxy S II, the port is very well done, with only a few minor issues. The list of current things working include:

- Wi-Fi
– Adobe Flash
– Play Store
– Vibration

Locked Motorola Devices Get Full Hardware Acceleration!

2833-pwned_2-1

Motorola has a long history of locking down their Android devices in order to prevent customization. From the eFUSE debacle surrounding the original Droid X to their general lack of interest in listening to the developer community, they have proven time and again their willingness to bite the hand that feeds them. Regardless of this, many users have a preference for the high level of hardware build quality provided by their Motorola overlords, and as such continue to purchase the locked down devices.

However, thanks to the efforts of XDA Recognized Developer kabaldan, locked down Motorola devices like the Milestone and the Defy can now enjoy fully functional hardware acceleration.

CM9 Alpha for Droid X2 Takes a Big Leap Forward

Droid X2

The development of an AOSP-based ROM such as CyanogenMod is sometimes troublesome on certain devices. The issues, bugs, and missing features sometimes range from broken 4G data or camera issues, down to things like problematic MMS. However, many bugs that have been plaguing CM9 progress for the Motorola Droid X2 have finally been fixed.

The ROM in question is CM9, and while ICS is not the newest OS on the block anymore, it’s still quite an achievement to get it running on older devices that haven’t yet received it. XDA Recognized Developer dragonzkiller has been actively working on the CM9 port, but has experienced a few issues making the camera work properly.

While seemingly a small problem. . . READ ON »
