Apps are at the front and center of any smartphone experience, and with over a million apps on the Google Play Store and new apps being submitted to our forums every day, staying up to date on the latest apps and games can be a hassle. At XDA, we don’t discriminate apps - if it’s interesting, innovative, original or useful, we mention them.

Unofficial CM10 for the Toshiba Folio 100
What do you do when you’ve got an old tablet that shipped with Froyo and want to run the latest version of Android? If you’re a developer here at XDA, you simply port Jelly Bean to it. Even better, you share the fruits of your labor with the rest of the community as well. That’s exactly what our developers here at XDA did with their Toshiba Folio 100 tablets.
Brought to us by XDA Member Aheros, this ROM is based on the CM10 Alpha port by XDA Senior Member DerArtem and XDA Member nopy. While highly functional, the ROM isn’t entirely bug free yet, as some users have reported issues with Bluetooth, HDMI audio output, USB 3G dongles, and lag when using with a mouse. It is still in active development, so all of these are in the to-fix list.
Can’t wait to install it on your Folio? Head over to the forum thread where you can download the ROM and keep up with the progress.
