Unofficial CM10.1 Now Available on the Galaxy S III I9300

CyanogenMod10.1 has been making its way around the forums as of late. Granted, they’re mostly unofficial builds, but any step forward is a step in the right direction. Now, CM10.1 has made to another device, the Samsung Galaxy S III I9300.

Like the build announced earlier today for the Galaxy Tab 2, XDA Elite Recognized Developer codeworkx took the reigns on this unofficial release as well. It’s a pretty early build so there are some issues, including:

- UI: Apps like NHK are broken
– Camera: Recording effects broken
– Camera: Touch 2 focus issues with enabled flashlight
– Bluetooth: audio streaming sometimes becomes laggy or stops at a distance > 1m
– FM Radio: unsupported
– TV Out: unsupported, will never work (proprietary, undocumented)
– Lots of missing and yet unimplemented features
– and a lot more

So if you’re looking for AOSP Jelly Bean 4.2 and you want it to be stable, you’re going to have to wait a little bit longer. That’s expected, though, as 4.2 is still pretty new. In a change from the norm, codeworkx requests that no one who flashes this submit any bug reports because the legendary Team Hacksung knows them all already. So simply relax, sit back, try it out, and watch the developers develop.

If you’d like to try it out, go to the original thread.

Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...

New Cyanogen Partnerships Bring Privacy Concerns

New Privacy concerns have emerged regarding Cyanogen’s latest announcements, primarily the inclusion of email app Boxer and that of a multitude of Microsoft apps, including Bing services, Skype, OneDrive, OneNote, Outlook, and Microsoft Office. The concerns arise when you look at both announcements together. At face value they may appear to be the beginning of Cyanogen’s plan to “take Android away from Google,” however there is certainly something more nefarious occurring. Along side the partnership with Microsoft, Cyanogen also recently announced...
