16-Samsung-Galaxy-S-Blaze-4G

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.

It could oftentimes be unstable and not properly tested, lacking any changelogs, but eventually evolving into alphas, betas, release candidates, and finally stable releases.

If you own a Galaxy S Blaze 4G, first and foremost, I'm sorry. But, you can make it a lot less horrible if you flash CyanogenMod 10.

Moments ago, CyanogenMod's Google+ page announced that Sony's Xperia T, the flagship device we first covered during IFA 2012, is joining the CyanogenMod device roster, offering a link to the device's Gerrit code review page and a quick James Bond reference.

What's more, the Xperia T's first (experimental) nightly build is already live in CyanogenMod's download center.

If you've got an Xperia T and have been itching for CM goodness "shaken, not stirred," keep a close watch on get.cm (linked below) for the latest nightly builds.

Yesterday, Android maintainer JBQ posted up a number of binaries and Android 4.1.2 images for multiple Nexus devices. Owners of international GSM variants of the Galaxy Nexus, though, were left out on the image side. Today, both the "soju" (Nexus S) and "yakju" (Galaxy Nexus GSM) have had their factory images updated to Android 4.1.2, and you can find those images here.

Google also saw fit to finally release a factory image for the Nexus Q, though it's based on Android 4.0.4.

cyanogenmod-announces-new-monthly-m-series-releases-begins-by-offering-up-cm10-m1-for-select-devices

Are you dying to get your hands on the latest version of CyanogenMod, but don't want to cope with the bugs that come with nightly builds? The M-Series is just what the doctor ordered, with stable builds of upcoming releases coming every month.

Monthly builds of CM started this time last month, so it's no surprise to see CyanogenMod 10 M2 hitting servers today. As promised, device support is growing, with 7 more devices on the list for M2 than M1.

If you're a developer, you've likely been chomping at the bit for Google to release the updated binaries and full device images after yesterday's Android 4.1.2 release. Just moments ago, Android maintainer JBQ placed 4.1.2 driver binaries for all maintained Nexus devices on the Google Developers site, as well as updated factory images (JZO54K) for the Nexus 7 and "takju" and "maguro" variants of the Galaxy Nexus.

These files are absolutely essential for tinkerers and developers wanting to stay on the cutting edge of Android, and Google has always been pretty on top of getting them out in a timely fashion.

As a developer, I absolutely love days like today. If the high-level "improves performance and stability and fixes bugs" changelog of Android 4.1.2 isn't good enough for you, how about we dive into the actual low-level source code commit logs Android engineers made into AOSP since 4.1.1_r1.1 (JRO03D) all the way through today's release 4.1.2_r1 (JZO54K). These commit logs are spread over probably 100+ repositories, so hunting for all of them manually would probably take you days.

Back in May of this year, Google unveiled its in-app subscription service, which allowed developers to easily add an auto-renewing subscription into their apps. Fast-forward to today, and Big G has added another new feature to the service: try-and-buy. Beginning now, developers can let users try a subscription for a a predefined amount of time without having to shell out the cash first. Here's how it'll work.

Once the service has been set up, the end user must "purchase" a subscription in the app.

Say what you will about Samsung, but they're on top of it when it comes to releasing the source code for their phones. Today, Samsung dropped said code for the C Spire Galaxy S III (a US regional carrier) and the T-Mobile Galaxy S Relay 4G.

Google's chief release engineer Jean-Baptiste Queru just announced via the Android Building group that version 4.1.2 of Android is being released to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) today.

The release follows Android 4.1.1, which was the final version of Jelly Bean, and is marked as minor. The build number, which we spotted in the logs yesterday, is JZO54K, while the AOSP tags are android-4.1.2_r1 and jb-mr0-release.

It's also a good time to bring up the fact that the LG Nexus prototype that we saw yesterday was also running 4.1.2.
