CyanogenMod 11 arriving unofficially for the Galaxy Note 3

The folks at Cyanogen recently released the source code for the Galaxy Note 3 and while that doesn't amount to an installable ROM, it did allow those with a bit of knowledge to get started. The Galaxy Note 3 source files were originally posted last week and despite not yet having an official nightly release, it looks like some progress has been made. A thread has popped up on the xda-developers forums and the first unofficial CM11 rom has dropped.

Sony Z Ultra GPe ROM drops for the Xperia Z1

The Google Play edition Sony Z Ultra arrived a bit earlier in the month. That handset joined the GPe lineup along with the LG G Pad 8.3 tablet, but more important for today -- the ROM from the GPe Z Ultra has been pulled and released for another of the more popular Sony handsets, the Xperia Z1. The catch is, the ROM is not quite fully baked just yet.

Paranoid Android “Immersive Mode” teased ahead of release

Android 4.4 Kit Kat introduced something called Immersive Mode. Basically, this means users are able to go full screen. Immersive Mode is a good option for games and reading apps and allows the system status and navigation bars to be hidden, thus adding a bit more real-estate to the screen. Immersive Mode also removes some of the distraction. The catch comes in with app support though, this is something developers have to enable.
