Unofficial CyanogenMod 10 for HTC Desire Z / G2

Over the last few weeks, we’ve reported on a number of seemingly impossible development stories, such as the almighty HTC HD2 and it’s cousin, the HTC Desire HD, both receiving unofficial Jelly Bean updates. Not to be left out, the HTC Desire Z has gained itself an unofficial CyanogenMod 10 Jelly Bean port, thanks to XDA Senior Member Flinny and the Andromadus dev team.

As expected with most early builds on a somewhat old device, there are some known issues still being worked on:

  • Wake issue (Kernel)
  • Video playback glitches (mainly in landscape, turn off HW overlay in developer settings as a work around for now)
  • Video camera (Doesn’t work at all yet)
  • Wifi tethering (Annoying me…)
  • Glitches on panorama camera (Overlay again same work around)
  • Improve io, integer and float handling (Kernel)

Despite these early problems, the ROM is certainly otherwise usable, and gives Desire Z users a sumptuous taste of Jelly Bean goodness.

If you fancy a bite, head on over to the ROM thread.

These options, however, seemed a bit tepid at best; the Nexus Player was extremely limited in nature, offering very little storage, weak...

Devs Beware – Automatic Backup Privacy Risks

One new feature of "Android M" (speculation on potential names welcomed on the back of a postcard) which gained little attention at Google I/O so far was the introduction of a new, automatic backup feature for application data. Obviously, it's still early days yet, though you can download the developer preview (if you're brave!), so we can't be sure of the final implementation, but there are a few gotchas here that developers should be aware of. Automation The first is...

Android M to Bring New App Drawer

It has now been seen that Android M will receive a new app drawer as part of the stock launcher. The first four icons you will see in your drawer now will be automatically updated to represent your recently used applications. Whether or not this will be directly based on those apps seen in your recent apps menu or uses a combination of that and your most frequently used apps remains to be seen. Below this is the start of a standard...
