Unofficial CM10 for the Kindle Fire and Original Galaxy Tab
We are well into the march of Jelly Bean, and the number of devices that have gotten Google’s latest and greatest is quite staggering. There are so many, in fact, that we are dedicating entire XDA TV episodes to it. A couple of the latest devices to get Jelly Bean—more specifically unofficial CM10 builds—are the Amazon Kindle Fire and the Samsung Galaxy Tab.
The Amazon Kindle Fire was given unofficial CM10 by XDA Senior Member twa_priv, and the Galaxy Tab was given its goods thanks to XDA Recognized Developer cdesai. In both instances, as has become typical for new builds, the ROMs have quite a bit working and quite a bit broken.
No list of things not working is provided for the Kindle Fire, but given that the change log is based almost entirely around adding features and fixing bugs, it’s safe to say that twa_priv is well on the way to fixing everything. Things not working in the Galaxy Tab port include:
Auto-Rotation animation looks weird.
Isn’t really smooth
External sd doesn’t work (isn’t mounted)
Will add more as they are discovered
The Kindle Fire version also features some additional modifications to include features from the SGT7 project. However, one should note that while they are fun to play with, neither of them is really geared yet for daily use.
For additional info, check out the Amazon Kindle Fire JB thread or the Samsung Galaxy Tab JB thread.

Close to the heart of XDA is the Xposed Framework by Rovo89. Most of us will have used it but you may feel that the module repository is missing something. We have the solution with several guides aimed at getting you started to build your own modules, something that may be daunting but can open an entire new field of development with a little time and effort. Where better to start than at the beginning? Rovo89 has created a straight forward tutorial for getting started with development for Xposed....
We recently did an in-depth review of the Asus Zenfone 2 but one of the things people may not be aware of is that ASUS has actually created a line of accessories to compliment the ZenFone, or any other Android device. The Lolliflash is a Lollipop-shaped external flash and the ZenPower is a thin 10,000mAh external battery. In today's video, Jordan shows off the Lolliflash and the ZenPower Accessories. Additionally, ASUS and XDA have teamed up to give away 5...
