Chrome for Android updated, no longer works on some custom ROMs [Update]

Oh yea! Chrome for Android Beta just received an update from Google over in the Android Market. At first glance we aren't seeing anything particularly new, not to mention they weren't nice enough to provide a change log for the update. Most likely the update just brought minor bug or performance fixes although we do have some bad news. The update is causing issues and Chrome for Android is no longer working on custom Android 4.0 ICS ROM's such as CyanogenMod 9.

Android Community Evening Wrap-Up: February 20, 2012

Earlier today, press photos of the Huawei Ascend D1 Q leaked. We should see more of this device at MWC, which is quickly approaching. We've written up an article to sum up what we should expect to see from Mobile World Congress this year, but hopefully we'll run into a few surprises as well. While we had hoped CES would be a bit more innovative than it turned out to be, this is the tech world's chance to redeem themselves - so get ready. Android 5.0 (Jelly Bean) has been in the news a bit more lately, and rightfully should be considering its estimated Q2 release. It turns out we could see a WebTop style desktop mode integrated as an optional interface. This will most likely suit devices like the Transformer Prime that take advantage of keyboard attachments. Chrome for Android is set to improve by "leaps and bounds" very soon says Chrome's Senior VP Sundar Pichai. As if the new browser, which is still in Beta, wasn't speedy enough. There still isn't a definite area Pichal suggests will be improved, but rather that users should expect an even better experience. Another application set for an update soon, rather a launch, is Temple Run. The highly anticipated game has let its users know the official announcement will take place on their Facebook page. Any MIUI fans out there? You'll be glad to know it's packed into a retail tablet in Japan. Named Eden Tab, it sports a 1.2GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, and 16 GB of onboard storage. It packs a 1280x800 pixel resolution into a 7" display, so you'll notice extra sharp images. It will only run at $370, and should start shipping this weekend. MIUI has been successfully ported to Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), so there's also a possibility it ships with that version.

Android Community Weekly: February 11, 2012

This week in tech news we finally saw the Motorola DROID 4 hit shelves, Google released an official Chrome Beta for Android, and yes - Temple Run still isn't out. Monday, Verizon's Galaxy Nexus was graced with a leak to Android 4.0.4, and it fixed many of the signal issues people were having. If you already have root and are running a custom ROM, you can flash the radios alone here. Don't hesitate about this one, as they seem to be 100% effective.

Chrome for Android Easter eggs: stupid tab tricks

Being the fun-loving world domination corporation that they are, Google likes to spread around Easter eggs in almost every website or piece of software they develop. The system version Easter eggs are some of Android's most famous, like Ice Cream Sandwich's NyanDroid. So it is with Chrome for Android, Google's attempt at synchronizing its desktop, mobile and stand-alone browser strategies. Two Easter eggs have been found in the mobile browser thus far, both intended to show off Chrome's impressive memory management.

Chrome to Mobile extension adds device-specific link sharing

By now you're probably familiar with Chrome to Phone, Google's link-forwarding Chrome extension and Android app that debuted with Android 2.2 Froyo. While it's great for getting a page to your phone quickly, it's also somewhat limited, especially if you use more than one Android device - it'll send the link to every phone and tablet on which you've installed the app. Along with the Chrome for Android beta, Google has added a totally new extension to the desktop version of the browser, called Chrome to Mobile Beta.
