Still stuck with an Epic 4G Touch (or stuck a relative with your old one)? If you've been holding off on flashing some of the previously leaked Jelly Bean builds for fear of stability or finality, Sextape has released what is rumored to be the final build that will go out as an over the air update some time in the near future.

Build FK23 can be downloaded here, and is relatively easy to flash.

One of the coolest features about Google+ is its ability to automatically upload all the photos you take and then allow you to selectively share them at your convenience. While Facebook has been testing this same type of feature with a few users since August, the service is now rolling out publicly to everyone. As long as you have the most recent version of the Android app, you should be able to enable it soon.

Welcome to the Android Police Podcast, Episode 38.

A Word From Our Sponsor

Special shout-out to Logitech this week, the official video sponsor of the Android Police Podcast's live video show! Logitech was kind enough to outfit the Android Police Podcast with some brand-new video digs, in the form the C920 and C910 Logitech HD Pro webcams.

The C920 webcam features Carl Zeiss optics, 1080p video recording, on-board h.264 video compression to reduce upload bandwidth requirements, and Logitech's proprietary Fluid Crystal Technology, making video smoother, sharper, and richer.

I know. You thought Flash was long gone. You mourned the relationship and moved on. Having made peace with the past and exploring a bright future, you were ready to start a new life with HTML5. Now, thanks to Mozilla, your ex has come calling, bringing back all those old memories. But enough with the metaphors. The organization behind Firefox announced Shumway, an open SWF runtime project, today. With this, the company hopes to bring compatibility for Flash content back to the web, particularly on mobile.

It's time for another installment of Getting To Know Android, the series where we show you every polished pixel in Google's latest Android update. Today's target is the Gallery, which, in a rare APK Teardown whiff, is not white. I have no idea what was going on with our crazy 4.2 alpha version, but the Gallery is still black, and the icon is still the same. Sorry about that. There is lots of new stuff to talk about, though.

Earlier today, we noticed a bug report for a very strange issue with multiple user accounts on the Nexus 7. Apparently, certain applications are displaying the underlying screen - be it the wallpaper, app tray, or the Play Store (depending on where the app was launched from) - through the foreground app. But here's the kicker: it's only happening on secondary accounts. Yeah, it's confusing and strange.

There's also a Reddit thread that confirms this is happening, and it seems to only be affecting apps that call on some sort of transparency.

If you're a bit of a foodie (I'll admit, I can be at times), finding recipes on the web from databases is often a... terrible experience. While some repositories like Epicurious do hold themselves to a higher standard, many big sites will put up 28 different recipes for the same meal, 26 of which are awful and tacky "tweaks" on classic dishes without any pictures at all. It's not fun to dig through that.

Cablevision might not cover the largest geographic area, but it's actually the 8th largest cable company by number of subscribers. Those lucky enough to have Cablevision TV piped into their homes have a new app to play with today. The Optimum app lets you stream TV and control your DVR right from the device. Of course, you need a compatible phone and those are apparently hard to come by.

The video streaming feature is remarkably open.

HTC has released the kernel source code (v1.15.605.4) for the DROID DNA, which you can download at the HTCdev site here (direct link to file here).

The DNA, which has an unlockable bootloader through an exploit we published last week, is HTC's latest and greatest on Verizon, and the first 1080p phone to be sold in the US. This kernel source should allow developers to start tweaking the DNA a little more thoroughly, and improve custom ROM support.

Partnered with Fat Pebble, Zynga officially launched Clay Jam for iOS and Android today, bringing to market a game made entirely of clay. Charged with the mission of saving the land of Clay Jam, players control a ball of clay called Fat Pebble as he rolls down hills collecting clay, avoiding obstacles, and maneuvering about using a "gouge control system."

Clay Jam, which has plenty of hills to roll down and unique hand-built monsters to encounter, is free to play, with optional in-app purchases to "save Clay Jam even sooner." The real story, though, is the impressive thoughtfulness and craftsmanship behind the game.
