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.

Sony’s Electronics Division is not in its best days, and its smartphone products are seemingly an important cause of this. The Japanese giant’s Xperia line has been on the decline in terms of sales, and these past few months have been particularly damaging to the company due to the Xperia Z4’s market performance. Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
