While the day after Christmas is rarely an exciting one in terms of tech news - aside from the length / level of disgruntledness of return lines around the US - we do have a tidbit for developers this morning. The Verizon Galaxy S III, recently updated to Android 4.1, now has matching source code. Samsung released the Jelly Bean-based source this morning (software version LK3), and you can get it at the source link (pun very much intended on this boring day) below.

While Android continues to get better about making its UI look gorgeous, there are still plenty of trends that have yet to be standardized in any meaningful way. Of course, part of that may be because they don't need to be. After all, Google doesn't want every app in the world to use the Google Now-style card view (though, so far, Google+, Search, and Currents are already among those that find inspiration from them).

HTC_One_X_Plus_Back

Update: If you head to the source link at the bottom of this post you'll see updated kernels for other X+ variants available as well. (Taiwan, Hong Kong, Europe, etc.)

HTC has released the kernel source for the AT&T version of the One X+ (that is, the US LTE model). You can find the kernel source (version 1.15.502.9) directly here or at the link below.

cyanogen-mod-10.1

Another day, another round of nightly builds for the upcoming CyanogenMod 10.1. This time, the latest release of the custom ROM that brings Android 4.2 has been made available on a further 3 devices: the Google Nexus S, Nexus S 4G, and the ASUS Transformer Pad 300 (TF300T).

Definition: A "nightly" is a bleeding edge release that is built on a daily basis, usually at night after a full day's worth of new code has been committed.

Samsung devices and sharing go together like Australian car racing and fistfights - you rarely see one without the other, in quantity (whether you like it or not). It makes sense, then, that Samsung wants to share its passion for sharing with developers. And today, it's making that a little easier, with the initial release of the AllShare Framework SDK.

What does AllShare do? That's a pretty good question I can't give a complete answer to.

CyanogenMod 10.1 is continuing to bring Android 4.2 to more devices each day, and Samsung fans will be glad to know that nightly builds are now available for:

Update: It appears this RUU may be improperly labeled, as we're hearing it fails to flash on a number of CIDs which it should be compatible with.

If you're the owner of a European model HTC One X, you're probably chomping at the bit to get your update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. While that update has begun rolling out in parts of Asia, it has yet to show up anywhere else.

I'm not going to pretend to be a developer here, and I'll openly admit that the bulk of what IDEA 12 does is over my head. However, I do understand its importance and relevance. Still, for the sake of correctness, we'll keep this one short and sweet.

When it comes to Android app development, there's Eclipse, then there's IDEA. IDEA 12 is, naturally, the newest incarnation of the application, and it brings a slew of new stuff that developers can make use of:

  • New interface and "Darcula" theme
  • New compiler mode
  • Support for Java 8, Spring Framework, and Play 2.0 for Java and Scala
  • Android UI designer
  • Database Development tools
  • ...and more

Like I said - I'm no dev.

Is rooting phones a hassle for you? Do you want to root somebody else's phone (whether they're willing or not), but don't want to deal with that whole pesky "getting permission" part? (Or dealing with teaching them how to go about doing it?)

A new app over at XDA by wchill may have you covered. I say "may" because it's still in a very early beta stage, but the response so far from the community has been pretty positive.

Congrats, everyone - we'll be in touch shortly.

The number of quality games in the Play Store may be increasing at a healthy pace, but let's be honest, there's still some room for improvement. Unfortunately, even if you know Java, creating games can be a little different than creating an app. You need some help - a professionally-written book to break down and explain each part of the process, then help you bring it together.
