CyanogenMod 9 for Galaxy Nexus hits “Stable” status

If you're part of the ever-growing developer and hacker culture that exists in the Android universe, you may well have heard of the most popular software build made by a 3rd party group: CyanogenMod. This group of developers creates a ROM that you run on your smartphone or tablet, it completely replacing what you'd had before with their own vision for a superior bit of mobile computing.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: August 1, 2012

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: August 1, 2012

We've collided head-on with the month of August, and today we had some interesting news stories to ring in the eighth month of the year. Surprisingly enough, we didn't have too much news about the ongoing trial between Apple and Samsung, except for the part where Samsung made Apple really angry by sending evidence that the original iPhone was inspired by Sony designs out to the press. Samsung found itself in a bit of hot water after that leak, so this evening it seems that Samsung has managed to get on Judge Lucy Koh's bad side. The United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit said today that the Galaxy Nexus can remain on sale until August 20 despite Apple's request for its preliminary injunction against the phone to be restored, so if you've been planning to buy one, your window to do so has been extended.

SlashGear 101: is Google Wallet safe?

We've had our fair share of experience with Google Wallet since it launched several months ago, and now that it's been updated to include all major credit and debit cards, it's time to once again address the most important question of all: is it safe? As it turns out, Google Wallet is really, really safe. You've got several ways to lock down your account, and starting today, you've also got a remote shutdown option too. Additionally, just as it is with any other use of a credit card, each use of Google Wallet at "more than 200,000 retail locations" across the USA require that you show a picture ID to make it work.

If you're looking to pick up a Samsung Galaxy Nexus you're in luck -it's escaped its lawful bonds once again. There's a new tip on the iPhone side of things, two new elements: Bluetooth 4 and a magsafe-style dock connector.

Nexus 7 gets spotlight in Google Fiber bid

Nexus 7 gets spotlight in Google Fiber bid

It's time for Google Fiber to go big as the company lets loose not just its pricing, packages, and hardware scale, but the fact that Kansas City will be using the Nexus 7 as their remote control for all their TV-related services. Google Fiber's TV plan (as detailed this morning) will cost you a $300 installation fee and $120 a month - unless you sign up for a 2-year contract, in which case installation is completely free. Included in that plan is several pieces of hardware: a TV Box, Network Box, Storage Box, and no less than the Nexus 7 itself.

Nokia N9 sees Jelly Bean port

We’ve seen the Nokia N9 hacked in the past to run Android (Ice Cream Sandwich, specifically), and now the handset has been given yet another lease on life with a Jelly Bean port. Sure, not everything will be working correctly, but matching the latest version of Android with a beautiful piece of hardware is hard to ignore. Work on the Ice Cream Sandwich port still continues, with a lot of features still not working, but hopefully that progress can be applied to Jelly Bean in the meantime.

ZTE Grand X hands-on

ZTE has launched its new Grand X flagship Android smartphone in the UK, balancing power and price to deliver a mini Nexus on a budget. Powered by NVIDIA's Tegra 2 - no, that's no typo, it's NVIDIA's last-gen chip - and paired with a 4.3-inch qHD LCD display and 5-megapixel camera, the Grand X runs an untampered version of Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich that could prove mighty appealing to those turned off by UI tweaks.
