Unofficial AOKP Lands on the Galaxy Tab 8.9

Even though the wild summer of Jelly Bean is coming to a close, there are still some devices getting Jelly Bean AOSP compiled for their devices. For the most part, we are removed from the pre-alphas and preview builds that saw more issues than features, and builds are actually becoming pretty solid. Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 users now have one such AOKP build.

The ROM was compiled by XDA Senior Member dan-htc-touch and posted for all to enjoy. It’s not a 100% stable build, but users should be able to run it anyway. Some of the features include:

aokp for the sgh i957,
overclockable to 1836 mhz thanks to kernel source from DAGr8
choose mtp or camera connection once connected
paid apps work

And, of course, it wouldn’t be a new ROM if we didn’t have a not working list:

ROM control — vibration menu item FC ROM control
usb devices don’t have an unmount option in task tray
possible connect to computer issue. Adb works fine connects to my linux box fine( have not tried windows)
nfc no work

So unless you’re a frequent user of NFC, require the vibration menu, or really need it to connect to your PC, then this could definitely be used as a daily driver. For additional info, check out the original thread.

Galaxy Unpacked: What is Samsung Going to Unveil?

Amidst all the hype of the OnePlus 2 and the rain of Moto 2015 news, Samsung tried stealing the limelight back to itself by announcing their next "Galaxy Unpacked" event, which will be held on August 13th 2015. Samsung took to Twitter to reveal a very cryptic gif associated with the event, which probably has some clue on the device(s) to be launched.

Arrow Launcher: Good Effort Without Direction

Microsoft’s Android expansion has been well received on the productivity front, but not so much in terms of original applications. While their Office suite managed to bring some of the document-editing excellence to mobile, attempts at entering one’s interface through apps like Picturesque proved to be pointless failures. But even then, some apps like Hyperlapse redeem the computing giant through great quality. Microsoft seems to be approaching Android with brute, misdirected development and plenty of unorganized output, and if they want...
