SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: August 9, 2012

Welcome to Thursday folks, just one more work day before arriving at the weekend. Today we had next to nothing about the Apple vs. Samsung trial, except for the news that a similar South Korean trial has been frozen for fear of it becoming too similar to the one being held here in the US. The lack of Apple vs. Samsung news leaves room for far more interesting things, however, like space! The Curiosity rover sent back a color panoramic shot of the surface of Mars along with its first full resolution image, and it's a pretty awesome sight. Sadly, it wasn't all exciting news for NASA today, as the Morpheus moon lander failed during a flight test and exploded into flames. Luckily no one was hurt, but this is still a pretty big setback for the folks at NASA.

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. Today the group has announced that the first "Stable" release for their newest version, CyanogenMod 9, is available for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: August 2, 2012

Well folks, the end of Thursday is nearly upon us, which means we'll be kicking off the weekend soon. Today brought quite a bit more news about the Apple vs. Samsung trial than yesterday did, with Samsung's lawyer fighting back against allegations made by Apple's counsel. Things aren't looking too good for Samsung though, as it appears that Judge Lucy Koh has thrown out quite a bit of the company's evidence, and now Apple is requesting sanctions that uphold its patents based on yesterday's evidence leak. The upside to all of this, however, is that we got another peek at an early iPhone prototype today, so be sure to check that one out.

CyanogenMod 9 starts legacy device cut-off with Qualcomm

Those of you familiar with the most famous Android ROM in existence will be less than thrilled to hear news of their first big cut-off of legacy devices with the Qualcomm Snapdragon S1. This chipset will not be supported by the hacker developer ranks of CyanogenMod's team starting with CyanogenMod 9. This version of the software is based on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich while CyanogenMod 10, based on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, has not yet been announced with limits.

Galaxy S III CyanogenMod 9 software spews forward

Galaxy S III CyanogenMod 9 software spews forward

The team behind CyanogenMod have just opened the doors for Samsung Galaxy S III users to test our their newest software build in "nightly" mode this week. The software known as CyanogenMod 9 is by far the most popular 3rd party "unofficial" build of Android on the web, and now that it's hit the Samsung Galaxy S III in what's essentially the equivalent of a Beta mode, it's about to get a whole lot more popular once again. This software will bring you much closer to a vanilla version of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich than Samsung's own TouchWiz UI allows, this being one of the main draws for all CyanogenMod-laden devices on the market today.

CyanogenMod Android hack hits 2 million installs

CyanogenMod Android hack hits 2 million installs

The hacked and completely fan-made Android-based ROM known as CyanogenMod has reached a massive 2 million installs this week, reminding us that it is far and away the most successful Android 3rd party system of all time. This update comes only a few months after CyanogenMod reached 1 million installs, the Google mobile OS-based hack growing now as what appears to be an exponential rate. The install rate is tracked by the CyanogenMod team's own CM stat tracker which shows also that the last 24 hours have had an additional 11,294 installs as well.

CyanogenMod Android team ask for community cash support

CyanogenMod Android team ask for community cash support

You won't see this sentence very often: CyanogenMod is asking for money. As you may well know, the Android community uses the modification to Android known as CyanogenMod more than any other custom ROM, hands down. And today they're asking that you help them out with their otherwise free service by donating some cash to help support the purchase of "a couple of solid, stable Xeon-class servers with large amounts of RAM and fast disks." They're currently using PayPal, which is unfortunate for the apparent mobs of users boycotting the service at the moment (there's a lot of overlap with the modding community) but you've got other options as well.

Banned Android Apps store being developed by ClockworkMod maker Koush

Banned Android Apps store being developed by ClockworkMod maker Koush

The same fellow that brought you and continues to bring you the most famous ROM handler on the hacked Android circuit ROM Manager, Koushik Dutta, aka Koush, has been developing an app store for the relatively small number of banned Android apps out in the wild today. Included in this sort of rogue appstore will be not only gaming emulators that've been tossed from the official market, but Visual Voicemail apps, one-click rooting apps, and other such gems that have otherwise found themselves on the short end of the banning stick ala Google. Full fledged ROMs will MAYBE be included in this app store as well, and should it take off, a full collection of flash-ready modifications for your already hacked Android device.
