Unofficial CM10.1 for the Galaxy Note, Official CM10.1 for the Galaxy S

Android 4.2 AOSP ROM development is in full swing here at XDA with a plethora of devices receiving the 4.2 goods. Thankfully, there are no signs of it slowing down, as 4.2 AOSP ROMs are popping up everywhere. The latest devices to get CM10.1 are the Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000 and the much older original Samsung Galaxy S I9000.

XDA Recognized Contributor chasmodo released an unofficial port of CM10.1 for the Galaxy Note. This isn’t the first CM10.1 to be released, but XDA Elite Recognized Developer Entropy512 will be away for awhile and has passed the nightlies builds on to chasmodo. The ROM is in development, meaning there are things wrong with it. The list includes:

– UI: Apps like NHK are broken
– Audio: bugs, missing features
– Camera: Recording partially broken
– FM Radio: unsupported
– TV Out: unsupported, not likely to ever work (there is small hope now but not much)
– Lots of missing and yet unimplemented features
– and a lot more

It’ll likely be some time before this is fully stable. However, development is in progress and multiple devs are working on it.

XDA Recognized Developer pawitp released what is actually an official CM10.1 build for the Galaxy S. In terms of stability, the list of known issues says there are no outstanding bugs, so this actually could be a daily driver. Granted, there may be smaller issues, but the big stuff should be all taken care of. Not bad for a device that is pretty old by Android’s standards.

For additional details, check out either the Galaxy Note II thread or the Galaxy S thread.

Update: As Elite Recognized Developer Entropy512 points out, there have actually been official nightlies for the N7000 for the past few days, with the thread update coming soon! You can find the nightlies in the usual place!

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
