Unofficial CM10.1 for the Samsung Galaxy Ace and Mini
As the official and unofficial builds of CM10.1 continue to roll out, yet another two lower specced devices, which some may have dismissed as not being capable of receiving such an update, are now running unofficial builds. Never let it be said that such devices aren’t well supported here at XDA. The Samsung Galaxy Mini and Samsung Galaxy Ace can both now be updated to the latest version of CyanogenMod thanks to XDA Senior Members AntiBillOS and Wayland_ACE, respectively. Both ROMS are still in their early stages, so there will be bugs. However, there don’t seem to be too many deal-breakers.
The version for the Galaxy Mini currently suffers from a some graphical and tethering issues involving both USB and WiFi tethering. Everything else is listed as functional, but be sure to read through the thread first to avoid any possible surprises. The version for the Galaxy Ace is struggling with video playback, and multi-user support is also disabled. Again, be sure to check the relevant thread thoroughly before flashing.
If you feel like updating your device to CM10.1 and seeing what all the fuss is about, you can find the Galaxy Mini version here and the build for the Galaxy Ace here. Happy flashing.

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
