OUYA game console release was previously delayed until June 25th, however that doesn't seem to have stopped those who have one of the already available developer units. We know the OUYA team is friendly towards hacking and modding. In fact, they previously announced a MakerBot partnership that will allow users to create their own cases. More to the point for today though, those developers have already released a working version of CWM Recovery.
Facebook Chat Head type feature. Paranoid Android decided to take Chat Heads and turn it into a unified notification system for Android, and put it on steroids. You might love it, or hate it, but this is what makes Android great. Read on for more details about Paranoid Android's HALO feature.
Facebook's latest features. Most notably, the Chat Heads messenger system. Many love the feature, but don't want to use Facebook. That's where Paranoid Android comes into play. We detailed this earlier today, and now have a video of their awesome new feature in action.
Facebook had a pretty busy few weeks releasing Facebook Home, the HTC First phone, and of course their new Messenger application with tons of new features. The only thing we really liked from Facebook's new arsenal was their unified messenger system called Chat Heads. Little bobble heads on the edges of the display for seamless communication. Soon we'll be getting that, without Facebook.
CyanogenMod took to their Google+ page earlier today to announce an awesome new feature that is now available on many CM10 nightly builds. It's called Pie Controls, and is popular with many Android ROM's, especially Paranoid Android. We first saw Pie Controls in the now replaced stock browser in Honeycomb, but starting today they'll be available in a completely different way.
Jelly Bean - also known as CyanogenMod 10.1 for the rest of us. CM 10.1 has just reached m2 status for many of their supported devices, and you can get it right now as we speak. More details and download links are available below.
HTC has recently set their sites on another ROM repository. This latest is HTCRuu.com and the owner has recently been contacted by lawyers from HTC demanding the site be taken down and the domain name transferred over to them. This all seems to come down to the fact the site was providing ROMs, however the complaints were dealing with trademark infringement and copyrighted material.
CyanogenMod ROM isn't going anywhere but their domain, official site, entire history, and email has all been shut down and compromised as of late. Sadly when things get big sometimes greed gets involved and that's exactly the case here.
