Unofficial CM10 and 10.1 Ports for the Galaxy Player 5 and Straight Talk Galaxy S II

CM for Straight Talk SGS2 & Galaxy Player 5

Lately, several devices have been getting Jelly Bean in form of CM 10 and CM 10.1 ports. Recently, we brought you unofficial CM10.1 ports for the Nook HD+ and Samsung Galaxy Fit. Now, the Galaxy Player 5 and Strait Talk Galaxy S2 have joined the club, thanks to unofficial ports by XDA Forum Members Mevordel and mr-cook, respectively.

Galaxy Player 5.0 Gets Pre-Alpha Jelly Bean and 3.0 Kernel

SGP5

We recently brought you news of some ICS development on the Samsung Galaxy Player 5. For those who don’t know, it was Samsung’s first five inch screen device. It appears as though devs aren’t done yet making ICS all it can be on the Galaxy Player 5, as most AOSP ICS ROMs are still riddled with issues. The most recent fix solves the issues with Bluetooth. And with the camera issue being a work in progress as well, it seems as though ICS will be running perfectly sooner rather than later.

Enable Tablet Mode on ICS ROMs on the Galaxy Player 5

Galaxy Player 5

While the most popular five inch device in the forums is the Samsung Galaxy Note, Samsung’s first five inch offering—the Samsung Galaxy Player 5—is still alive and kicking. Due to the ambiguous screen size, determining which layout it receives can be a real question. Now, owners of the device can make that choice for themselves.

The modification is courtesy of XDA Senior Member Supermaster34 and comes in the form of a patch that changes any ICS ROM from phone to tablet mode by replacing the services.jar and launcher files. Some features and info for the patch include:

Tablet Apps can be used
