Jellybean Port Reaches The Samsung Galaxy SIII

Jun 30 2012 10:19 AM | Ryan Dizzle in News

It looks like the good folks over at XDA are at it again, this time with an unofficial port of Android 4.1 Jellybean for the International version of the Samsung Galaxy S III.

Taken from the actual XDA thread:

Based On: What Works:
  • ADB
  • Touchscreen
  • Hardware Acceleration
  • Notification LED
  • Cellular Rado (But No Audio so no Calls)
  • Physical Buttons
  • SMS
  • Accelerometer
  • Charging
  • Maybe More
What Doesn't work:
  • Wi-Fi/Bluetooth/NFC
  • Audio
  • Camera
  • MTP
  • Storage
  • Maybe more

With a laundry list of what's NOT working, this should be considered a working alpha build.

You can see a Youtube preview of the build and how to flash it here.

Keep in mind, this is for the i9300 Galaxy S3 and not the American Version. So flash with caution and to your heart's content.

The credit of this unofficial port goes to XDA members and devs Faaryab and Randomblame

I have to agree with AndroidSpin in that it is really faster than other Music ID apps.

Here is what the widget looks like and I like that it doesnt open anything it just starts listening as soon as you tap it.

Adobe Officially Halts Flash Support For Android

Jun 30 2012 10:52 AM | Ryan Dizzle in News

Back in November, Adobe officially announced that they will halt their support for Android to strengthen their focus on Flash for the PC. Yesterday, their blog posted an update and statement regarding their now, official departure from Android.

So What does this mean for Android?

- Jellybean 4.1 will not have future flash support. Adobe's departure only means they will no longer support or offer security or software updates for Android 4.1 and beyond.

- Adobe recommends that you uninstall Flash on any existing devices already running Android 4.1 due to losing future security support/updates

- Flash can still be used on Android 4.0 thru devices running 2.2; Adobe will support the existing and latest Flash software for existing phones with security updates.

So What Now? HTML5?

Two years ago, former Apple CEO and now deceased, Steve Jobs openly denounced Adobe Flash for its instability and security issues in explaining why iOS never supported it.

Web developers, however, were quick to adapt by using and adopting HTML5 instead, an arguably more stable and smoother video streaming experience on the iphone.

Since HTML5 is compatible across ios and android devices, it will likely fill the void that Adobe Flash for Android will leave.
