Team EOS Brings AOSP ICS to the ASUS Transformer via Nightly Builds

Team EOS has done so much for the Motorola Xoom over the past few months when it comes to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and now they bring their work to the ASUS Transformer. Enlisting the help of XDA Senior Member Roach2010 back in November of 2011, a ROM was built with AOSP as its base but no hardware support was available. After ASUS released ICS for the Transformer on February 24th, the team had all they needed. The developer released a basic preview of the ROM on the 25th, and two days later these nightlies came to fruition.

The developer states that the only real bugs right now have to do with the proprietary dock functions, and he is currently working to work out the compatibility kinks. However, flashing a nightly build always carries an inherent risk of instability. As such, these builds carry the usual disclaimer:

A quick note on Nightlies: NIGHTLIES ARE DEVELOPMENT BUILDS. They are automatically generated once every 24 hours and represent the compilation of the latest commits to the code repository. While every effort is made ensure that the commits that are accepted are stable and do not have a negative impact to the overall performance and function of the builds it is not possible to test every aspect of a commits impact to the overall repo prior to it’s inclusion in a given build. As a result it is entirely possible that instabilities may be introduced as a result of a given days commits. That is the nature of the nightly system, and the risk that is taken using the latest code changes to the project. 

EOS is an AOSP based rom. It is developed and maintained by Team EOS and is the culmination of our own in house development efforts.

Those interested should continue to the ROM thread.

Glimpse Notifications: Easier Lockscreen Notifications

Lollipop brought a revamp to the lockscreen, taking away custom widgets but showing your notifications instead. If you're a fan of that, you might want an easier way to check your notifications as they come in, without losing your current lockscreen. Glimpse Notifications by XDA Senior Member xrad offers just that. You'd normally have to turn your screen on manually to see your notifications. Instead, Glimpse Notifications will do it for you when a notification comes in. That doesn't mean...
