Unofficial CyanogenMod 10.1 For the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1
CyanogenMod 10.1 (and thus Jelly Bean 4.2) has been making its way around the forums recently, and users couldn’t be happier. Moreover, it’s being released for devices that otherwise have little to no chance of receiving official Android 4.2 from the OEMs. Now, there are unofficial CyanogenMod 10.1 builds being released for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1.
CM10.1 for the Tab 2 10.1 was released to the forums by the legendary XDA Elite Recognized Developer codeworkx. These are early builds, so there will likely be some issues. There isn’t a running list of issues, but users have reported things like the gesture typing not working, some apps like YouTube not working, and the occasional lag. Another interesting issue is the reformatting of the SD card to prepare for multiple users. This is exactly the same issue experienced on the Galaxy Nexus. There isn’t a fix for it yet, though, but it has been determined that an updated ClockworkMod Recovery will help prevent the formatting issues.
Finding workarounds for most of the issues isn’t very hard, and many users are running this as their daily driver. In fact, many have posted their solutions to the issues they’ve had to help make it easier. However, if you’re looking for 100% stability, you might want to stick with another build for the time being.

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...
