Official CyanogenMod 9 Nightlies Come To Three More Variants Of The Galaxy Tab 10.1: Verizon, WiFi + 3G (Unlocked), And 10.1v

Last we heard, CyanogenMod 9's interaction with the Galaxy Tab 10.1 line was limited to the variants shackled either to T-Mobile or to WiFi. However, the CM team has been hard at work, and as of yesterday, the following three editions of the 10-inch tablet have been granted access to the CM nightly kingdom:

  • Verizon's Galaxy Tab 10.1 (SCH-I905) - Download: p4VZW

Samsung Galaxy S III Rooted By Chainfire, Shows Samsung Is Still Cool With Unlockability

Even though the device hasn't even hit the street, noted Android developer Chainfire has obtained root on the Samsung Galaxy S III. Chainfire doesn't actually have the device in hand, so don't start berating him with questions on that matter. Rather, he got root on a firmware build that was leaked to him, and has a few juicy tidbits to share with everyone.

It appears that the Galaxy S III isn't going to be locked down in any significant way.

CyanogenMod 9 Nightlies Come To The HTC Sensation

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.

Update: Confirmed working on both Sensation and T-Mobile Sensation 4G.

The code release includes kernel source for the One X across a range of carriers and regions, including Optus, T-Mobile, Orange, Vodafone, and more, though the list notably excludes AT&T.

While HTC's release of One X kernel source is certainly a step in the right direction, the AT&T variant's absence is unsettling, and many are no doubt still wondering when (or if) the device may be allowed into HTC's bootloader unlock program after a controversial statement from the manufacturer Friday.

CyanogenMod 9 Nightlies Now Available For The OG Seven-Inch GSM/CDMA Galaxy Tabs

Take the OG Galaxy Tab for example - this little guy was the first Android tablet to hit the scene (running a phone-specific version of the OS, no less). It has been around for about a year and a half now, and there's no hope that it will ever officially be updated to anything past Gingerbread.
