特色: 手指双击黑屏开机 直接进到鎖屏 Lock Screen

棒棒糖是主要内容

记得刷入安卓安装器,如果你对安卓应用情有独钟

总结: 
此安卓 Rom 5.1.1 在此索尼手机上算是可以通过运行要求。
只是此手机只有 1GB 的内存 Ram, 所以不算完美。
自带相机軟件应换成 Lenovo 的 Super Camera apk 😁 下载。
此安卓版本並入了 CyanogenMod CM12.1 軟件,因此在系统运作模式上更上一层楼。
可是此棒棒糖系统在省电上没有优势。必须加載其他軟件如 CPU 管理,Greenify 等等来调节。
這些也算是玩转安卓刷机 Flashing Roms 的乐趣。

如果有性趣,可以上网在 Rom 基地 下载相关刷机包。

Android Development ~ Why OPPO’s Color OS Makes Sense September 21, 2015

Color OS is another popular Chinese smartphone system OS besides the MIUI.

If you still do not have a clue, be known that this OS runs on OPPO  smartphones!
image

As a case in point, those who still own the Sony XPERIA S, this is a good opportunity to upgrade the XPERIA home system to Color OS 2.0 and test it out. Those who own other Android devices may also check it out from the web, locate the right Color OS rom version meant for your handset.

You can get the rom zip file download from Chinese website
http://www.romjd.com › device
and look for Sony XPERIA S LT26i Color OS zip download.
Make sure your device is rooted with CWM recovery.
And you need to be familiar with flashing 3rd party rom. If you are first timer, read up more on this subject.

image

This is a Chinese original Color Operating System. So it does not come ready with Google Play and Google Services.
Simple solution, what you need to do is to go to the website to download the app GOOGLE INSTALLER. There you go, you can sign in with your Google account and start the ball rolling.

image

image

image

If you don’t like some of the Chinese apps you can also uninstall them.

This version of Color OS 2.0 is a matured and highly stable rom. It proves highly efficient even running on a dual-core 1.5GHz device launched 3 1/2 years ago. It is definitely much much better than the original XPERIA OS.

Above: Lock screen

Below: Home screen

image

image

One of its efficient stuff are the motion gestures:

image

And, this rom comes with App Drawer…

image

And versatile task manager,

image

image

Summary:
This Color OS for XPERIA S is worth all the effort to download and flash it. No bug and no lag.
Zip file for the rom is about 600MB.
image

It revitalizes this old Sony phone, with a great music player. Top it up with Lenovo Super Camera installed, and it includes the GIF capability.

Put Your HTC One (M7) On CyanogenMod CM11 & Let’s Rock July 18, 2015

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.

image

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.

image

Above:  MiHome MIUI Lock screen.

image

image

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

image

image

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.

image

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!

Android 5.1.1 2nd Update Arrives On Nexus 7 (2013) Wifi July 2, 2015

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.

image

image

image

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.

image

Accept that the Build Number is now reflected as LMY48G
image

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

Quick Review: Pebble Watch vs Apple Watch June 28, 2015

Now that Apple Watch is being released to the market in Apple Stores in many countries, this is the time for the moment of truth, by comparing both the Apple Watch and the humble Original Pebble watch.

image

Apple Watch ~
1. A fashion statement more than anything.
2. Costs too much for simple functionality.
3. Feel-good factor if you wear one to meet your friends. (Other smart watches can’t achieve this).
4. If you are successful, go for the 18K gold version.
image

Now what about Pebble watch?

image

Original Pebble watch ~
Simply put, you only need to realize the following… Facts.
What Pebble can do that Apple can’t?

1.  Long lasting battery juices! (Between 4 – 5 days).
2.  Thousands of 3rd party applications for download.
3.  Value for money ~ many good functionalities.
4.  Room for customization.
5.  Screen On all the time!
6.  Dammed clear under bright sun light!
7.  Take it for a swim in the pool or sea. (Not for diving).
8. Unlimited watch face you can create…
image

Shortcomings:    Monochrome, no touch screen.
image

Highlight:    Original Pebble with steel bracelet.  (See images below)

image

Keep it up, Pebble team!
To grow Pebble community, give them the constant firmware updates… Like what Google did to Nexus.

This Vintage Divers Watch by Tiffany & Co. was produced during the period 1971 1983.

It is for water sports and diving to the depth of up to 200m (660ft).

The mechanism is run by quartz.

It is quite rare to get one these days on the used market, especially those in mint condition.
