Team EOS Nightlies Bring Android 4.2 To The Motorola Xoom

There were a couple of reasons that many Motorola Xoom owners, myself included, were concerned we may not see Android 4.2 on our devices any time soon. First, Google decided to drop both the Xoom and Nexus S from the Android Open Source Project—effectively leaving them to live out their final days on Android 4.1, in official capacity at least. There were also concerns about the size of the /system partition. Obviously as the Android operating system evolves, ROMs become larger and begin to approach the limits of system space available on some older devices. All that is now irrelevant though thanks to those stalwarts of Xoom development, Team EOS.

EOS4 Nightlies are based on Android 4.2, and will hopefully, in time, bring the full 4.2 experience to the now somewhat aged Xoom. At the moment, there are still bugs to be ironed out, and some of the newer features are yet to be implemented. These are, after all, nightly builds. However given the track record of Team EOS, you can rest assured that things will only keep getting better. On the whole, things are looking good, but make sure to check the thread so you know what to expect. At the moment, these builds are only for the WiFi only Xoom, the Wingray.

Check out the forum thread for more information.

CloudPlayer: DIY HiFi Music Streaming Solution

In our Helpful Guide to Music Streaming Services, we mentioned several different services that offer ways to stream catalogs of music directly to your device. While each service has their benefits and drawbacks, the common theme among them is to give you access to a vast library of music without the need to store your own, and charge you a monthly fee for the privilege. But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...
