[Update: Skyrocket, Too] Samsung Open Sources The Epic 4G Touch's Kernel Ahead Of Ice Cream Sandwich Update (FF18)

Today is a good day, I think, for source code drops! Samsung has just released the source code for an update for the Epic 4G Touch, Sprint's variant of the Galaxy S II. The update (FF18) is said to be rolling out to devices right now as an OTA. If you want to get your hands on the kernel code to fiddle with it yourself before the update arrives, however, you can head to Samsung's download page here.

Dat source code.

If you're not a developer, chances are this won't be of interest to you. No you can't flash it and yes you're better off waiting for a ROM to be built or the update to rollout to your device.

Turntable.fm App Updated, Fixes The Annoying 'System Volume Mute' Bug And Lets You Login With Your Turntable Account

If you've used the official turntable.fm app, then you've probably noticed a couple of different things: firstly, it's awesome. Kicking it in a room and spinning tracks with your homies from your mobile is just rad, and the experience is very similar to that of its desktop counterpart.

Secondly, you've probably also noticed that, upon disconnection of headphones or Bluetooth audio devices, the volume was suddenly muted, even when the turntable app isn't running. In fact, I had no idea that turntable was the cause of this exceedingly annoying problem which has been driving me nuts for weeks (to be fair, though, I haven't actually looked for a solution, either).

[Update: Now With yakju] How-To: Download And Update GSM Galaxy Nexus To Android 4.1.1 Manually (Jelly Bean JRO03C)

Following yesterday's Jelly Bean AOSP invasion, the HSPA+ Galaxy Nexus is now receiving the release build 4.1.1 (JRO03C) of Jelly Bean. That's indeed great news, but since the rollout is usually staggered, not all phones are allowed to receive it the second it's out there. If you're rooted or have an unlocked bootloader, why not just bypass the line and flash the update manually? I just did, and it took only a few minutes.

Prerequisites

Update 7/11/12 4am PT: we now have yakju!

Here's what you need to have for this method to work (I will update the post if we figure out the links to OTAs for more variants):

  • takju - this is the GSM variant sold directly by Google and given out at I/O 2012.

Ice Cream Sandwich And 'Premium Suite' Now Available Via Kies For The AT&T Galaxy Note

While Samsung may have started pushing the ICS update to international Galaxy Notes back in May, AT&T owners of what is essentially the same device were left wanting. Today, however, that all changes; Samsung has made available Ice Cream Sandwich for the AT&T version of the Note.

Aside from all the added benefits and enhancements of Ice Cream Sandwich, Samsung has also includes its "Premium Suite" of apps designed specifically for the Note.

Android Asset Studio Gets A Major Update – New UI, Device Frames, Clipart, And More

Bringing some exciting news to the Android design world today, Roman Nurik announced via Google+ that the acclaimed Android Asset Studio received a major update.

First off, the whole site has received a new layout/UI inspired by ICS and its holo themes. Next, the much-beloved Device Frame Generator (which has been making app screenshots gorgeous since last October) got a huge update. The generator now allows users to create beautifully framed images featuring Samsung's Galaxy SIII, Galaxy Note, Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, and Google's own Nexus 7 tablet. Further, users can choose whether the resulting image will have a shadow and/or screen glare (or appear rotated) before saving the finished product.

AT&T Galaxy SII Skyrocket's Official Ice Cream Sandwich Update Rolling Out Now Via Kies

Months after AT&T's Samsung Galaxy SII Skyrocket got a leaked build of Ice Cream Sandwich, it looks like the device is finally getting an official update. Users at XDA began reporting the update earlier today, indicating that it is available over Kies. Unlike March's leaked build, the official update brings users to Android 4.0.4, rather than 4.0.3, and (of course) carries a different build number. Here's a snippet from the update's build.prop:

ro.build.description=SGH-I727-user 4.0.4 IMM76D UCLF6 release-keys
ro.build.fingerprint=samsung/SGH-I727/SGH-I727:4.0.4/IMM76D/UCLF6:user/release-keys

Of course, rooted users would be advised to wait for a pre-rooted build of the update. Everyone else needs only to fire up Kies, look for build i727UCLF6, and grab the update.

Sprint Is Rolling Out A Small Security Update To The Galaxy S III - The Second Since Release

The Galaxy S III on Sprint has been seeing a considerable amount of update action in the short time since it's been released. Back on June 29th, the device saw a security update and now, according to Sprint's community website, a second "Google security updates" OTA software patch is headed to the device.

2012-07-09_12h20_03

The carrier hasn't offered any details on what the update fixes, beyond that today's update is Google-related, while the previous update is just a generic security update. Still, it's interesting to see that the device has received multiple security updates within less than a month. We haven't heard of any major security issues, so this may just be a bit of proactive protection.

CyanogenMod Team Talks Jelly Bean, And We Like What We're Hearing

When Jelly Bean was announced, it's as if you could hear the entire Android community speak in unison: CM10! Anyone who has been around the block a time or two knows, though, you just don't ask for ETAs on CM builds. Of course, it wouldn't really matter if you did at this point - the JB source code isn't even available yet. However, the CyanogenMod Team took the time to address many of the questions on everyone's minds on their G+ earlier today, and we have to admit - it all sounds pretty good.

The post starts by addressing the version number; since JB is an incremental update to ICS will it be CM9.1?
