Unofficial CM10.1 for the Nook HD+ and Samsung Galaxy Fit

The CM10.1 releases have been flying off the shelves in recent months. Porting has begun to slow down a little bit, but there is support for new devices on nearly a daily basis. There is no pattern to releases, as the specifications on a device don’t seem to matter. Now, there are unofficial CM10.1 builds for the Barnes & Noble Nook HD+ and the Samsung Galaxy Fit GT 5670. Once again, there is a new device and an old device receiving the latest Android at nearly the same time. The Galaxy Fit build was posted by XDA Senior Member erikcas. It’s based on the the Galaxy Ace version by XDA Senior Member Wayland_ACE. It is surprisingly stable, but there are a few things wrong including:

Audio routing issue: in some cases audio routes to handset instead of headset Secure wifi AP youtube control buttons

Since that is the running list of issues on the Galaxy Ace, it’s safe to assume they’re also the issues on the Galaxy Fit. It is still a beta, though, so there may be some smaller quirks and issues not reported.

XDA Senior Member verygreen posted the CM10.1 for the Nook HD+. This is a very interesting release because it’s geared to run specifically off of an SD Card. Thus, users don’t actually install this to their /system partition like a normal ROM. Instead, they install it on their SD card and boot from there. Since you can still boot into the regular OS, this means that installing CM10.1 means you’re essentially dual booting, albeit through cumbersome means.

There are some issues with the Nook HD+ ROM, which may make the build unsuitable for some. The /data partition is only 900MB for right now, there are some MTP issues that users should avoid, Bluetooth audio is reportedly awful, and users can’t boot back into the regular OS without removing the SD card.

If you’d like to check these out, go to the Nook HD+ thread or the Galaxy Fit thread.

Google Photos ‘Unlimited’ Storage Reportedly Being Capped

When Google Photos was announced, many of us thought very highly of the idea. It seemed like Google had taken what they learned from G+ Photos and added some extra touches to polish the experience, making it something that more people were likely to actually utilize. Now however, the much-lauded 'Unlimited Storage' element may not be quite what it seemed. Here's what we can gather so far...   Reports have come in from multiple G+ and Reddit users who have attempted to back up a...
