For those who are still holding on faithfully to your HTC One (M7), it’s time to root it and try out the CyanogenMod custom rom.  Though now the Android version 5.0 is already out, but from feedback it may not be that stable yet, as it is on the ART runtime instead of Dalvik.

So you can try out the CM 11 (Android 4.4.4) which is stable by now.

It is also not a bad idea to try out downloading the Xiaomi MIUI launcher UI & themes (MiHome version 3.8.0) on the device.
Both (CM 11 and MiHome) paired UI rather well without issue.

OS/rom is built on CyanogenMod CM11 with Android 4.4.4 KitKat:

For the rather controversial UltraPixel camera, you can further improve it by downloading the latest Lenovo Super Camera apk as the main camera. The result is really good.

And of course, the HTC One’s solid 468ppi screen and audio sound (especially if you spend some money to get a good earpiece) would not disappoint you.

For FM radio, CM 11 doesn’t provide the app. Just download the TuneIn Radio will do. With WiFi on, there’s no need to plug in a earpiece (!) and you can still tune in and enjoy radio programs via the device’s external speakers. That’s not quite possible with other phones out there.

Yeah, not to forget to also download (optional) CPU Control app from Google Play Store, you should try scaling down the clock speed a bit lower and try out different combinations of Governors and I/O Schedulers. Also to carry out calibration of battery charging, and clean up (wipe) cache partition 💩… That should help to reduce battery heat up (a common HTC problem) and make it lasts longer in the day.

Enjoy!

Pebble Time or Original Pebble? July 14, 2015

Above :  The newer Pebble Time made some improvements over the older version of (Original) Pebble. But not much actually.

The most obvious change is definitely the color e-paper screen.
The older Pebble fitted with a monochrome screen.

Of course, one has to pay more to buy the new Pebble Time.

In terms of value for money and functionality, the original Pebble still an attractive proposition.  Though it has a plastic and carbonized  casing, that some how give it a retros fashion.  Especially Match it with steel bracelet.

Both watches can do much more than the fashionable Apple Watch and costs much cheaper.  Best of all, the Pebbles are supported by a large pool of 3rd party developers. Customization of watch face is a great fun for users.

索尼 LT26i XPERIA S 最最好用的刷机包 ~ “新蜂” ROM ! July 14, 2015

這评论和评分到底有多真?

image

我起初根本就不相信有如此穩定加好用的 Rom 存在。
真的有这么多人刷了讚好?
image

可是事实证明他们是对的!!!

记住:  刷机时要用 Recovery 去 Factory Reset; 並且要用CWM Recovery 工具。那些说变磚的都不了解這一点。

此 “新蜂” New Bees Rom 基本上採用了索尼内核系统,可是它的最新版本也把内核修改加強了。
因此,它的操作性能比原版更加有力和流畅之极。

並且此系统保留了索尼的重要应用组合:  相机,屏幕加強软件,音效,小组件, NFC 和  收音机。😁😂😀

总结: 這应该是最強大的索尼 Custom Rom 包了。它把這款索尼 Xperia S 发挥得淋漓尽致。善哉。

再也无话可说。新蜂工作室,你们行!

The Nexus 7 (2013) Wi-Fi model can now be updated with the latest Android 5.1.1 Lollipop build LMY48G. Google had released the first Android 5.1.1 factory image for the tablet two months ago. Now it has released an updated factory image.

The 2nd update of Android 5.1.1 for Nexus 7 (2013) WiFi version arrives on 1st July, 2015 via OTA installation.

Upon installation via OTA, the device reboot automatically and there you go, done.

So far, there’s no obvious difference between the last firmware update and this one. Mainly some bugs fix.

Accept that the Build Number is now reflected as LMY48G

I suspect that this could also be the preparatory version installed for the next major change from Lollipop to Android M?
Hope so.
