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.

Partially working:
  • Keyboard. To use virtual keyboard disable physical keyboard from Language and Input -> Default, after every reboot.
  • Camera/Video
  • Sensors
Not Working:
  • Media Scanner
  • When using headphones mic don’t work
Will Never Work:
  • Video
  • Native tethering

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.

Open War for Open Android: Antitrust for Cyanogen?

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...

What Do You Do with All of Your Old Photos?

Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us. Furthermore, since our smartphones are always with us, the majority of us end up taking tons of photos throughout the lifespan of our devices. But what happens to all the old photos you take? Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
