Looking for a decent case for your Nexus 4?

I have came cross this nice case made by RINGKE for Nexus 4.  With Nexus 4 having a glass back, which can easily break if dropped.  Having a case on this baby is a must.  So take a look at this case which looks nice and is not expensive (around $13.99).

Episode IV: What I am running on my Galaxy Nexus?, 

Last Episode, I introduced Liquid Smooth. I have not posted another episode since then.  Today I would like to introduce JBSOURCERY, I been running for the last week, and quite happy with it, its properly the most feature packed  ROM out there for Galaxy Nexus.  I can not even write down all the features it includes in this post, because there are too many.  Just to list few, AOKP Style Toggles, CM Style Toggles, Lockscreen Options (Slider Shortcuts), Navigation Bar (Up to 5 soft keys), Status Bar (battery,clock,signal),  and some of the  mods include Animation (download and change screen transition).  Try it for yourself, and leave your feedback below, i will also include the current kernel i am using with this ROM, I did not use the  JBSOURCERY  kernel that came with it, instead I loaded TinyKernel, new recently released Kernel, and properly the best Kernel i used for Jelly Bean ROM.

Update Last: Nov 14th, 2012

We now have unofficial Cayanogen Mod 10 (JB 4.1.2 JZO54K) for Lenovo Ideapad K1, thanks to port of  "Khanning" CM9 Port and "Krook1" having CM10 working on Lenovo Ideapad K1.


We now have unofficial Cayanogen Mod 9 for Lenovo Ideapad K1, thanks to "Khanning"

This is an unofficial CM9 port for the Lenovo Ideapad K1 tablet. To flash this Rom you must be already running the official Lenovo ICS Rom or my AOSP ICS build. This WILL NOT work if you are currently running Honeycomb or the Alpha cm9 port, update to one of the newer Roms then flash this from CWM recovery.

HTC is rolling out an update for Inspire 4G. You can download it from your phone directly or download it from HTC support site. If you are having difficulty getting the update downloaded you can download it from here.


As you know from my previous post. Samsung Galaxy only supports 6 Language. To get other languages you have to install third party apps. I have tested all 4 of these apps and they work. I currently use SwiftKey 3 Keyboard and it works great.

Best Option:  If you are rooted and have custom ROM installed, you get a lot of options for languages.
Follow instructions here to root: ROOT
Install this Custom ROM: LS RC9

Last week, official Ice Cream Sandwich was released for Lenovo Idepad K1, but without one valuable asset , the "Google Play Store" .  After the released developer by the name of khanning, took the release and added the Google Play Store in matters of hours and I posted that here on another post.  But still with that release from khanning, there was still another issue, with the compatibility issue of apps/games from the market not showing up.

Episode III:  What I am running on my Galaxy Nexus (Verizon)? 

Another week another ROM, if you did not read what i was running in Episode II, I ran Bugless Beast by Pete, I did not have no issues with that ROM, it ran great, I highly recommend it to anybody who wants to stock experience of Jelly Bean with added boast.  

In today's Episode III, I will introduce a new ROM release by  "Liquid Smooth" team.  Before Jelly Bean release, it was only Ice Cream Sandwich ROM I ran on my Nexus.  There is a lot of features baked into this release and each feature are really useful.  It was one of the things, I miss switching to Jelly Bean, the added features of Liquid Smooth.  I will post screen shots soon below.  For now enjoy the release and flash away and leave any feedback in the comment section.


This post is longer active and will not be updated, follow the link to new release at the following link:

Episode II:  What I am running on my Galaxy Nexus (Verizon)?

With a large collection of ROMS  for Galaxy Nexus (Google Device), because of the support by many developers.  This makes a difficult decision to pick what ROM should i try?  I always stick with one ROM for weeks or months depending on how stable it is or if it has the features I need.  Last episode I was running Jelly Bean 3.6 by Jakeday, I ran it for 1-2 weeks before I decided to switch.  Reason for switch? I had soft reboot issues, whenever I turn on the WiFi, 4G connectivity issues.  There is also new Jelly Bean 3.7 release out from the developer to this ROM ( link: Jelly Bean 3.7), if anybody wish to try the new update, leave comment below, if you want to report anything about the new release.


A new Google Music update is available in Google Play Store that brings some major changes to the UI.

The Final Version of Jelly Bean SDK is out. The SDK was available since it was released Google I/O but as of July 18 the final version is out. There has been lots of bug fixes in both the tools package and in the Eclipse plugin. If you haven't got your hands on the SDK yet, you can follow source link below to see how to download it.

It has seem like the 64GB Samsung Galaxy S3 has been discontinued. Some stores have even marked the phone as discontinued on there sites. If you were hoping to get a hold of the 64GB Samsung Galaxy S3, there is still hope. Samsung has told The Verge that they are not discontinuing the 64GB Samsung Galaxy S3. It will be available during the second half of this year, so if your wanted to get the roomy headset, you will have to wait a little bit longer.
