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.

Sunday Debate: Are Smaller Bezels Better or Worth It?

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience.   With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
