Unofficial CyanogenMod 10 for the Samsung Galaxy GT-I5510
Whenever we report on a device receiving an unofficial Cyanogenmod 10 port, more often than not, it’s for a relatively recent device. But in this case, the device that’s received the CM10 build is in fact the Samsung Galaxy GT-I5510. Released back in late 2010, the device has only 512MB RAM and a 600MHz processor, making it a somewhat surprising, and indeed impressive candidate for CyanogenMod 10.
The dev responsible for bringing us this ROM is XDA Forum Member Ajay191191, who has built the ROM from source. As can be expected with a device of this age running CM10, there are a number of issues to be aware of.
- Keyboard. To use virtual keyboard disable physical keyboard from Language and Input -> Default, after every reboot.
- Media Scanner
- When using headphones mic don’t work
Will Never Work:
All other major functions should be working normally, so the ROM is very much usable, though the dev mentions there will be instabilities.
If you want to try out Cyanogenmod 10 on your Galaxy I5510, check out the ROM thread.

Automation The first is...
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...
