This Week in CyanogenMod

Week Ending: August 2, 2013

“This Week in CyanogenMod” is an ongoing feature that aims to serve as a one-stop shop for weekly updates. Topics discussed are culled from our social media accounts, gerrit, status updates and general thoughts.

Lot’s of stuff to cover, so let’s just jump right in.

Help from Negri Electronics

Ryan from Negri Electronics stepped in to help us out with some of our endeavors. He was kind enough to get us a i9505 and Xperia Z to tinker with, in addition to some spare batteries. Always nice when a distributor can lend a hand to the community!

I9500 Bringup

We had a bit of a breakthrough with the Exynos 5 based Galaxy S4, with intervigil working hard on bringing that device some 10.2 goodness. Lot’s of progress this week, but still plenty of kinks to work out. Source is available for those who wish to build what we have thus far, or even help out if possible.

Global Blacklist

New to the 10.2 code, we’ve overhauled our blacklist functionality, gave the UI a holo makeover and added in support for SMS blacklisting as well.

Focal

Also added to the 10.2 code was our new camera app Focal. It’s available in all its GPLv2 glory in our Github. Still plenty of items to improve, but overall we are very happy with how its been received.

Android 4.3

We continue to churn through our device roster to bring them up to speed with CM 10.2/Android 4.3. We are nearing the point where we feel nightlies are suitable, but not yet. Give us some time to get things in order, 10.2 goodies aren’t too far away. Thanks for your patience.

AndysThreads Pre-Order

As a reminder, the pre-orders the CM attire on AndysThreads are still open. We managed to crush their site yesterday (oops) but things should have settled down by now. As we stated before, we’ll be donating our percentage of the sales to the Electronic Frontier Foundation. Unfamiliar with what they do? Check them out!

Got a suggestion for a topic you’d like to see in the next round-up? Let us know in the comments below.

All device/port requests will be ignored.

    Stop With The overall bull@hit, and get cm 10.2 out, as fast as you can! The people, you are referring to, are NOT all, just as STUPID as most of the Americans are, so stop it! If you want to give something nice to all your followers, just do it and don’t focus on the sells of the t-shirts or any other things! Just do your “hobby” and don’t beg for anything, please!

  • Dayson

    You’re an a$$.

  • Stergios Partsalis

    I keep my breath for you, because i think you may need it! Just go and eat some hamburgers now and think you are smart enough to comment!

  • Stergios Partsalis

    Thank You! I wish i could tell the same for all of you I@iots!

  • Dayson

    They are developing software to make your phone more awesome, in their spare time from their jobs&families. If you want to tell them what to do, give them a year’s salary. Otherwise, be patient and wait for them to do what they care to do when they care to do it. Th Devs do not owe you anything. You are not entitled to anything from them. You get only what they choose to provide. If you don’t like it, do the development & coding yourself.

    I have a leaked document that states “when it’s ready”. as always with leaks it should be taken with a grain of salt, but it sure sounds like it will be available when it’s actually ready.
