Startup Nextbit Plans To Launch A Smartphone, Will Offer Details In The Coming Weeks

Nextbit hasn't been in the news much since its public debut last year, but that's mostly because its services are geared toward OEMs. The last we heard from Nextbit, its Baton multi-device app sync service was entering the testing phase on CyanogenMod. That was last year, but now the company is taking on a new challenge—hardware. Nextbit plans to launch a phone.

Touchscreen Issues Are Still Plaguing The OnePlus One, And The Latest Problem Disables The Phone Completely

The OnePlus One is no stranger to touchscreen issues. Problems with inaccurate taps have been affecting some users almost since the initial release a year ago - the company has issued no less than seven different "fixes" for the problem across CyanogenMod S and Oxygen OS. The latest problem is easily the most glaring, and it's been documented by our own fearless leader Artem Russakovskii. Basically, the entire touchscreen seems to be shutting off randomly.

Artem isn't the only one experiencing this: his wife had the same issue shortly beforehand on her own OnePlus One. If you're wondering, he's running firmware version YNG1TAS2I3, and he had been using the phone outside (but not in any particularly intense heat) before seeing the problem crop up.

OnePlus Releases OxygenOS 1.01 Update With Another Touchscreen Fix

While the experience isn't felt across the board, many OnePlus One owners have been plagued by touchscreen issues since making the decision to never settle. As a result, the company has pushed out update after update aimed at alleviating an issue that seems to have a tendency to resurface.

Now it has released another one, OxygenOS version 1.01. A link to download the firmware is available directly inside the announcement. The forum post doesn't contain a changelog, but it does mention "a patch for the touchscreen issue."

There's also a tool available for folks who have not yet installed OxygenOS that should let them flash the latest version directly from CyanogenMod 11 or 12 without data loss.

HeadsOff Disables Heads Up Notifications In Lollipop, Restores Ticker Text

Remember back when the CyanogenMod team discovered the code for heads up notifications hidden deep in Android KitKat, and everyone wanted to play with them? Now that it's been standardized in Lollipop, apparently at least some people aren't so keen on them. We've featured HeadsOff before in our app roundup: it's a neat little app that disables heads up notifications in Android 5.0 or later, and does it even without root permissions.

But wait, as the showman says, there's more! The 2.0 update released today also enables ticker text in the notification bar with the $2 pro version upgrade.

The Next 'Powered By Cyanogen' Phone Is The Andromax Q, Coming To Indonesia Soon

Despite the continuing tense relationship between Cyanogen and OnePlus, the former seems to be making new partnerships all the time, particularly with low-cost phone suppliers in emerging markets. The latest to run the company's custom build of Android is a carrier phone from Indonesian company Smartfren, the Andromax Q. Despite having a name that sounds like some kind of multi-gendered Replicant, it will be Indonesia's first phone running Cyanogen "OS."

The specs on the Andromax Q are decidedly low-end - here in the states it would probably cost $100-150 off-contract, and it will sell for 1.3 million Rupiah (about $97 USD) from Smartfren.

OnePlus Says No Android 5.1 For OxygenOS Until The OnePlus 2 Is Out, Cyanogen OS 12.1 Coming Soon

OnePlus' breakup with Cyanogen Inc. was neither amicable nor expected, which seems to have left OnePlus in a bit of a bind. The company has managed to get its Lollipop-based OxygenOS ROM out the door for OnePlus One owners, but those hoping for a quick update to Android 5.1 will be disappointed. That's not happening until after the OnePlus 2 is released. The new Cyanogen OS is coming soon, though.

Android M Will Never Ask Users For Permission To Use The Internet, And That's Probably Okay

Google's initiative to put privacy and security back into the hands of users through a revised permission system has received generally positive responses. It's no secret that this approach closely matches the way iOS prompts users for access to things like the contacts or location. Aside from the possibility that permission requests could become annoying with too much frequency, this has proven to be a pretty effective approach. However, since the announcement, one sticking point seems to have emerged around access to the Internet. As it turns out, users will never be asked to grant access to the outside world, and it's not even possible to revoke it, even if they wanted to.

YouTube 60fps Video Support Appears To Be Rolling Out On Android, Plus 60fps Live Streaming Is Official

We've gotten a few reports today of a new feature hitting the YouTube app, and it's a big one. After an extended public outcry, Google appears to be adding support for 60fps video to Android. Videos shot in 60fps look much smoother and more realistic, but this doesn't seem to be live for everyone yet.

Team Win Recovery Project Now Supports Native Qualcomm Encryption On The OnePlus One

If you're a frequent ROM flasher (why does that sound mildly dirty?) and a OnePlus One owner, you might want to grab the latest build of TWRP. A Team Win developer says that it now supports Qualcomm's native encryption scheme in addition to Android's standard AOSP encryption. Why does this matter? According to Ethan "Dees Troy" Yonker and cited benchmarks, Qualcomm's encryption offers better performance when compared to Google's encryption applied to the same hardware.

...for slower encryption methods.

The hardware-based encryption offers an approximate 30% boost to read-write speeds over Android's software encryption, though it's still well below the performance of unencrypted flash storage.
