Learn to Compile CM9 on the HTC Amaze 4G

CID

Compiling a ROM from source—or compiling anything from source—is often considered the first real development that aspiring developers do. There are ROM kitchens out there that will compile source for you, but the experience of doing it on your own is simply more gratifying. While the tutorial is written in the HTC Amaze 4G section of the forums, the instructions are pretty basic and should work for many other devices.

The tutorial, written by XDA Recognized Developer sportsstar89, was created to help generate interest in building ROMs from source and to help inspire more ideas. Of course, when it comes to AOSP development in general, the more the merrier.

Official CyanogenMod 9 Nightly Builds for the Galaxy S III

czZs6

Back when we took a quick look at the Samsung Galaxy S III at Samsung Unpacked 2012, we immediately knew that the device’s proprietary software would surely be appreciated by the community. While we’ve seen various parts of the TouchWiz-laden UI ported to other devices, some lucky SGS3 owners actually prefer vanilla AOSP over Samsung’s heavily skinned variant.

For those who haven’t been following development progress on the device, XDA Elite Recognized Developer Chainfire first rooted the SGS3, sight-unseen, about a month ago. Not too long after, he released CF-Root and an unofficial version of ClockworkMod for the device.

Official CyanogenMod 9 Nightlies for the Galaxy S II I9100G

Codeworks

The good news just keeps coming for the I9100G variant of the Samsung Galaxy S II. The OMAP4-based device just received an official dose of TouchWiz-laden Ice Cream Sandwich goodness a few short days ago in the form of the Android 4.0.3-based XXLPQ update. However, no matter how much you may tolerate or perhaps even enjoy a particular OEM skin, there are many out there who have one quest with new Android devices—loading an AOSP-derived ROM.

This is now possible on the I9100G, and it comes in the form of official CyanogenMod 9 nightlies for the device. The developer responsible for this achievement is none other than XDA Elite Recognized Developer codeworkx of Team Hacksung. As of now, the ROM appear. . . READ ON »

HTC ChaCha Receives Unofficial CM9 Alpha

HTC ChaCha

Who could have possibly anticipated this? While many, more popular devices still don’t have an AOSP-based ROM, development seems to be moving right along for the HTC ChaCha. The device, which wasn’t scheduled to get ICS in any form, has received an update to Google’s latest and greatest courtesy of an unofficial CyanogenMod 9 port.

XDA Recognized Contributor Alex C. has posted a thread on behalf of XDA Recognized Developer adlx.xda for the alpha releases of the build that are, admittedly, pretty rough. However, a booting AOSP ICS build is better than no AOSP ICS build at all. Given the Alpha nature, the problems are quite plentiful:

1. Camera is not working (front/back)
2. Volume panel s

TF300T Gets First Custom ICS ROM Courtesy of CM9

CM9

It was bound to happen sooner or later. With the Asus release of the unlocker tool for the TF300T, everyone could probably guess that development on the modest, yet still awesome tablet would start picking up, as developers now have no obstacles blocking their path. And now thanks to the official release of experimental CyanogenMod 9 builds, Asus Transformer TF300T owners now have access to the popular AOSP-derived, multi-device aftermarket firmware.

XDA Recognized Developer XpLoDWilD of Team Hacksung has released an experimental build of the popular ROM for users to try out. And frankly, for a ROM labeled as experimental, it’s surprisingly functional and doesn’t have a lot broken.

BBQLog Brings CM Nightly Changes Straight to You

BBQlog

Change logs are definitely one of the most important parts of any release. Be it an app, ROM, kernel, mod, tweak, script, you name it; releasing a change log with each new release allows users to see what you’ve changed, fixed, added, and subtracted from prior versions. Often, it’s the very first developer-to-user interaction, and a well thought out change log can ease the minds of the cautious and give users compelling reason to upgrade. Fans of CyanogenMod nightlies probably know the value of the change logs even more so than most other ORDers, as they receive substantial updates rather frequently.

Enter BBQlog. Released by XDA Senior Member peterperfect along with the team behind the pre. . . READ ON »

Extremely Alpha CM9 Arrives for the Droid X2

motorola-droid-x2-group-550px

Now that Motorola has confirmed that it will not release an Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Droid X2 (much to the dismay of many X2 users), it stands to reason that some clever developer would whip together an ICS build for the device. XDA Recognized Developer dragonzkiller has done just that, and released an extremely experimental ICS build for the snubbed device. Even without an official Motorola ICS kernel, the build is on it’s way to being totally functional. From the release thread:

Working:

  • WIFI
  • Bluetooth
  • Data/3G (see known issues)
  • *Maybe* tethering, but I doubt it (turns on, but haven’t tested)
  • HQ and LQ Youtube (used to be a problem)
  • And a lot of little things

Known Issues:
Besides a whol
