Android Ice Cream Sandwich Photos Leak on Nexus S

Several screenshots have been leaked to a set of Android-specific fan sites that appear to show a Samsung Nexus S device hosting the newest still unreleased version of Android, that being Ice Cream Sandwich, a version which is said to tie together the smartphone and the tablet worlds, each of them now running their own versions of Android, Gingerbread for handsets and Honeycomb for tablets. A set of factoids appears to have been delivered with these photos from a source who very well may be delivering a legitimate Beta version of this operating system to the public.

The images in these photos we would give an educated guess at saying are certainly the Samsung Nexus S Android handset but whether or not this is actually an Ice Cream Sandwich Beta build or not is up for debate. What we’re seeing here is a suspiciously cyan-looking layout where apps are crowned by a set of tabs that show Apps and Widgets separate with an Android Marketplace link in the upper right. Icons appear to be, on the whole, the same as we’ve seen in the basic vanilla build of Gingerbread on the Nexus S and the dock for app shortcuts at the bottom of the main homescreen set is semitransparent, having a circle depressed around the fourth app in the set, this possibly showing a drawer of apps working for multi-tasking much in the same way Honeycomb does now.

The following set of specs and features are written up by RootzWiki based on their sources:

Some features of ICS that we know (from our source and speculation):

• Blue Themed – Like our site (Change theme on bottom)

• Camera has built in panorama mode

• Will launch with Google Shopper and NFC Enabled devices will be able to utilize those features

• Gmail is all rethemed

• Will be available for the Nexus S

• Nexus Prime gets it first (expected) then other devices will follow after

• Not too many changes, just UI things, don’t think requirements are set too high for year old devices to run it

• The little icon in the bottom right, looks like a tray with multiple apps in it

• Google search bar embedded on very top like Honeycomb

• Apps/Widgets launcher a lot like Honeycomb

• This release is still very early, notice the theming of the power tray

The next set of details comes from Android Police who had the other set of leaked photos:

Our source has revealed the following:

• Brand-new launcher and app drawer, with screenshots of both featured exclusively on RootzWiki

• Camera now has a panorama mode (not pictured)

• Gmail has been totally re-themed to go with the new OS (not pictured)

• Nexus S will be receiving ICS via update, but the “Nexus Prime” will be getting it first

• Mostly UI changes – many older devices (< 1 year old) should be able to run it

What do you think? Seem like a realistic set of specifications from all different directions? Have a look at our Sandwich archive or head to the last rumor: Samsung roadmap leak tips 720p I9250 Android ICS phone, more or head back to the original official announcement for the REAL release from Google at the spring developer event: Android Ice Cream Sandwich Officially Announced at Google I/O.

Google Nexus 9 Vs Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4

Google Nexus 9 review

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4

Google’s Nexus 9 features an 8.9-inch LCD display with 2048 x 1536 resolution and a pixel density of 281 ppi. The Tab S features an 8.4-inch Super AMOLED display with 2560 x 1600 resolution and a pixel density of 359 ppi.

Both tablets offer great viewing angles and are extremely sharp. However, the biggest difference between these two tablets is the aspect ratio. The Nexus 9 has a 4:3 aspect ratio, which isn’t too common on tablets for a reason. Letter boxing occurs more than we’d like it to when watching videos or movies, but that’s the sacrifice you’ll need to make when choosing a squarer display. We understand that no aspect ratio is perfect for everyone, as Samsung’s 16:9 ratio has its flaws as well. Holding the tablet in portrait mode is okay, but Internet browsing in landscape on the Tab S isn’t ideal, as not much information can fit on the screen, especially because web pages aren’t usually laid out side-to-side. Additionally, thanks to the Nexus 9’s LCD panel, we’ve experienced a bit of light bleed on the top and bottom of the display. However, that’s nothing you would particularly notice in everyday use.

When it comes to displays, if you want a more natural color display palette, you might want to consider the Nexus 9. But if you’re partial to punchier colors and deeper blacks, the Tab S is for you. What’s more, the Tab S offers a significantly higher pixel density, resulting in an overall clearer display.

The Nexus 9 offers the powerful NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor backed by 2GB of RAM. The Tab S features Samsung’s own Exynos 5 Octacore chipset backed by 3GB of RAM.

Thanks to the Tegra K1, gaming on the Nexus 9 is runs particularly well. We haven’t seen many dropped framerates or stutters in games, so if you’d like a tablet specifically for gaming, the Nexus 9 might be your best bet. Gaming on the Tab S isn’t laggy either, though we can’t help but notice it feels just half of a step slower than the Nexus 9. If you buy one tablet or the other for gaming, you won’t be disappointed with either.

When it comes to performance in software, the two don’t really differ. Thanks to the stock Google experience on Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Nexus 9 flies through the software with ease. We didn’t notice many hiccups while scrolling through recent apps, web pages, or really any other aspects of the software. Though the Tab S has many more software features to push around in Samsung’s TouchWiz, it performs surprisingly well.

In case you’re new to the tablet world, software is where these tablets differ more than anything. Google’s Nexus line has always come with a “no-frills” software experience. Nexus devices always run stock Android software, and that can be both a positive and a negative. Without a ton of extra features crammed into the device, the software runs very smoothly. Whether you’re a fan of Android 5.0 Lollipop or not, there’s no arguing that the software experience is one of the most simple and elegant experiences out there. On top of that, this device was made by Google, so it will be one of the first devices to receive any updates that are pushed out to Android.

Samsung takes a vastly different route when it comes to software. We’ve all said it before, and we’ll say it again: TouchWiz is bright, big, colorful, and very busy. From the cluttered Settings panel to the busy notification drop down menu, it’s clear that simplicity isn’t Samsung’s strongest asset. However, it’s cluttered for a reason. With so many extra features crammed into the software, you’ll find some to be extremely useful and others to just take up space. Unfortunately, software updates are pretty scarce with Samsung devices. The Tab S is still running Android 4.4 KitKat. While not too many other manufacturers have pushed out Lollipop updates so far, Samsung is usually last to update their devices. Though it’s a relatively new tablet, the Tab S may not see its Lollipop update for quite some time.

When comparing the two, it should be noted that Samsung is one of the only device manufacturers to actually use a big screen the correct way. Features like Multi-Window that allows for running multiple apps at once, Smart Stay that keeps the screen on when you’re looking at it, and Smart Pause that pauses a video when you look away, really help make for a better media-consuming experience.

Where the Nexus 9 comes up short in the number of features, it makes up for it in design. Android 5.0 Lollipop brings more UI enhancements to Android using Google’s new Material Design language. In Lollipop, everything warrants a movement, whether that be the information on the notification shade moving when you pull it down, or any number of new layers Google has added in to show more depth in the software, it’s all just really good looking. We aren’t sure what Lollipop will bring to Samsung’s TouchWiz, but we do know that it may not get there for quite some time.

All in all, if you’re looking for a tablet that has more features than you can count and incredible multitasking software, the clear choice is the Tab S. But if you’re more partial to the simplistic, elegant and quickly-updated software experience, we’d suggest you go with the Nexus 9. Keep in mind that neither devices’ software experience is perfect, and sacrifices will need to be made with both.

The Nexus 9’s starting price is $399 for the 16GB Wifi-only model. Higher storage options and LTE-connected variants are also available, so be prepared to pay more depending on which option you choose. It’s also available in Black, White, and Sand colors, and can be purchased directly through Google Play, HTCor Amazon.

The Galaxy Tab S 8.4 also begins at $400, and can be bought directly through Samsung, or basically any other electronics retailer out there. It’s available in Dazzling White or Titanium Bronze, and also comes in higher-storage variants. Though the Tab S is priced at $400, at the time of writing this, we found a few on Amazon being sold for under $350.

So, there you have it — our comparison of the Google Nexus 9 vs. the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4. Again, your decision on whether to buy one tablet over the other completely lies in your needs. The Tab S offers great multitasking software, a solid build quality, and is slightly more portable. However, be willing to put up with cluttered software and a slightly lower battery capacity. The Nexus 9 offers a beautiful, simple software experience with a large battery and loud front-firing speakers. Nonetheless, choosing the Nexus 9 means you’ll need to deal with slightly less-quality hardware and not many extra tablet-friendly software features.

When comparing these two, it’s very apparent that neither one is close to perfect, but if you’re looking for a tablet that has an 8 or 9-inch display, you can’t go wrong with either one. Let us know your thoughts on these two tablets!

Android Nougat For Nexus 5 Released Unofficially!

Update [October 05, 2024]: Sprint has come out with an update for its Nexus 5 with new software version M4B30X, that brings the October patch to the device.

Did we tell you that Nexus 5 will so, so definitely, get the Android Nougat update, even though that would be 100% unofficial build. Yes, that time we’re talking about CM14 ROM doing the job, which it will, but we already have an pure AOSP Nougat ROM for Nexus 5 with us, one that when installed, brings Android 7.0 update to the device right now.

Some bugs are part of the update, of course. Some serious bugs, we mean, but we’re sure these are momentarily issues with the ROM, that would go away soon as development continues as fast and furious pace. You can find the ROM here, but once again, know that it’s not a daily driver at all as of today, August 25.

Let’s talk at some more length about the whole Nexus 5 Nougat update situation.

Because Nexus 5 is more than two years old by the time Google released Nougat update — it’s actually almost three years old, you know, even though fondly remembered by all of us — the update river has all but dried up for the device, except for some occasional security oriented ones.

Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow was officially the last update for Nexus 5 from Google. Period.

Read: HTC Nougat update release

Yes, Nexus 5 will live on. Because Android is an open-source project, under which Google shares the code publicly with the world, developers can pull that Android 7.0 code and create a Nougat ROM all by themselves.

Which they have done, and the result is the AOSP Nougat ROM we talked about in the opening paragraphs of this article. And even the Nexus 5 CM14 is under development, along with CAF version.

Nexus 5 CM14

Even though Android Nougat came to Nexus 5 via a simple AOSP ROM first, the ROM carrying the light for long would be CM14, or CyanogenMod 14. As many other ROMs would use CM14 as base, and would bring in extra features and customization options than stock AOSP ROM.

We expect the unofficial build of Nexus 5 CM14 to arrive by the end of August, or in first week of September, and official build by September end, that should be stable enough for daily usage.

Read: Galaxy Note 7 Nougat update release

Well, Nougat for sure in all its upcoming version like Android 7.0.1 or Android 7.1. But we also fully expect from developers to give Nexus 5 a breath life with Android O updates too, via an AOSP ROM like the one that appeared today carrying Nougat update. Speaking of Android O, we think it will have one certain new feature, called the Navbar Tuner, which is also available for testing as beta release.

But with Android O, the ROM stability and fine tuning could become issue, by sheer reason of Nexus 5’s age and its old hardware. Beyond Android O, it’s hard to say how developer love Nexus 5 would get, but even if it does, there won’t be a good stable ROM enough to be used as a daily driver. But anyway, your Nexus 5 will be more of a Hall Of Fame material than your daily usage device, right?

Do let us know if you or anyone among your family members (your grandma?) and friends use Nexus 5? And how glad you will to install Nougat update for their device?

Android 4.2 Based Slimbean For Nexus 4 — Guide

The Nexus 4 has been out for a little over a week now. And like with every new high-end smartphone out there, precursors to custom ROMs, viz. Bootloader unlock and Custom Recovery has already been outed for it. Not surprising then, that custom ROMs would follow soon after. We’ve already seen Jelly Time, the first of the lot, being released a couple of days ago.

And now XDA recognized developer krarvind, from the much acclaimed Slim  Roms team, has released a new pre-alpha version of the Slim Bean ROM based on  Android 4.2. Slim Bean  is based purely on AOSP, and is very close to stoock Android, but has a few interesting touches unique to Slim Bean ROMs like  lower DPI and multi-DPI Playstore, varrious other modifications which make it a light and fast ROM. Slim Bean is the Jelly Bean based variant of the hugely popular Slim ICS ROM, and it now arrives in its bran new Android 4.2 flavor.

Like I mentioned earlier, it’s still a pre-alpha, which means not everything is expected to be 100% functional. A couple of features like Face Unlock and Auto Restore are still work in progress, but one can still go ahead and try it out, if you’re lucky enough to have got your hands on a Nexus 4. Read on to know how you can flash the Slim Bean 4.2 ROM on your Nexus 4.


The procedure described below is only for the LG Nexus 4. Do not try it on any other device.


The methods and procedures discussed here are considered risky, so try them out at your own risk, and make sure to read each step carefully before attempting anything. We will not be held responsible if anything goes wrong.

How to Install Slim Bean ROM on Nexus 4

Firstly, to be able to flash Custom ROMs, you need to unlock the bootloader on your Nexus 4. If you haven’t already done so, you can refer to our Bootloader Unlock guide for the Nexus 4. Unlocking the bootloader will wipe out all your data, so it would be wise to back up all your important data from your device by referring to our Android Backup Guide

You also need to have CWM or ClockworkMod Recovery installed for flashing the ROM. If  you don’t already have it,  you can refer to this guide to install CWM on your Nexus 4.

Now lets go ahead and download all the stuff that we need to flash on the Nexus 4, from the source page. 

Latest version of the Slim Bean ROM

Android 4..2 GAPPS package

Multi-DPI Play Store

[Optional] Stock Jelly Bean 4.2 launcher  (Default launcher in ROM is HoloLauncherHD)

Copy all the files you downloaded in Step 3 to your Phone SD card

Now turn off your phone and boot into CWM recovery. To do that first boot into the bootloader mode holding the Volume Down + Power button simultaneously till you see the big Start sign at the top. Then, using the volume buttons, scroll to the “Recovery mode” option, then select it using the power button to enter CWM recovery.

First thing to do in recovery, before flashing any ROM is to take a full Nandroid backup of your existing ROM. That way, you have a fallback option in case things get messy with the new ROM. To do this, select Backup and Restore from the main menu, and then select Backup on the next screen

Now from the main menu, select wipe data/factory reset, then select Yes on next screen to confirm. Wait a bit for the data wipe to get completed.

After the data wipe has been completed, select install zip from sdcard, then select choose zip from sdcard. Scroll to the Slim Bean ROM file and select it. Confirm installation on the next screen.

Once the Slim Bean ROM installation is complete, go back to the main  menu and repeat Step 8, for the Gapps package, Multi DPI Play Store and the Android 4.2 JB Launcher, specifically in that order.

Once you are done flashing all four zip files, select Go back to return to the Main menu, and then select Reboot System to boot into the OS.

When your phone boots back up, you should be running the light and speedy Slim Bean 4.2 Custom ROM on your device. Try it out and let us know how you like it.

Men’s Ice Hockey Takes On Sacred Heart In Home Opener

Men’s Ice Hockey Plays Home Opener Tonight Touted Terriers look to get back on track after two losses

Clayton Keller (CGS’18), part of a nine-man Terrier rookie class, has turned in three points in three games to start the 2024–17 campaign. Photos by Rich Gagnon/BU Athletics

“You know who people are sick of? You. And I know that because I’m sick and tired of hearing how good we’re going to be.”

That’s how BU men’s hockey head coach David Quinn (CAS’89) greeted his Terriers in early September at the first team meeting of the 2024-17 campaign. Quinn’s tongue-in-cheek message set the tone for how he wants a team loaded with young talent to approach a season surrounded by an unprecedented amount of hype.

The nine-man freshman class gathered by Quinn and his staff has been touted as one of the best ever assembled, and preseason polls reveal the extent of this national recognition. BU snagged 10 of 12 first place votes to top the annual Hockey East Preseason Coaches Poll and was tabbed as the fourth-best team in the nation in the 2024 Preseason chúng tôi Division I Men’s Poll.

For Quinn, all this attention has made his job that much more important. “It’s the job of the coaching staff, really,” he says. “You’ve got to block out all the noise and focus on what’s going on inside the walls of your arena and locker room. That’s what coaching’s all about. It’s not about the fancy plays and the systems. It’s about keeping your team straight-minded, focused, and challenged on a daily basis.”

Quinn has entrusted the delivery of this message to captain Doyle Somerby (CGS’15, COM’17) and alternate captains Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson (Questrom’19) and Nikolas Olsson (CGS’16, COM’18). However, on a team with just three seniors, all of the returning Terriers will be expected to lead.

“The only difference between us and the others—because everyone who’s returning is a leader in their own way—is that we have letters on our jerseys and we can talk to refs,” Olsson says. “We have a ton of leaders, and I’m really excited to work with those guys and to lead our incoming freshmen.”

The program’s newest members sprinted out of the gate, making the Terriers look every bit the powerhouse they were predicted to be. Harper tallied eight goals in preseason tilts against Prince Edward Island and the US Under-18 team, with Keller joining him at the top of the preseason scoresheet with three of his own.

When BU opened regular-season play at Colgate on October 8, Harper picked up where he left off, scoring on his first official shot as a Terrier and following up with a second tally in the 6-1 BU victory. Goaltender Jake Oettinger (CGS’18) turned in 29 saves in the winning effort. The strong start catapulted BU to second place in the October 10 chúng tôi poll.

However, back-to-back losses last weekend to Denver, the team that ended BU’s 2024-16 season with a dominating 7-2 victory, knocked the Terriers’ USCHO ranking to eighth and handed the youthful team its first taste of what life is like when the entire country is looking to topple the giant.

When the Terriers host Sacred Heart tonight in their home opener, they’re determined to get back on track and continue their dominance inside Agganis Arena, where they went 14-2-2 last season.

“Our guys understand what consistency is and how mentally tough we need to be if we’re going to have success,” Quinn says. “The date’s circled when BU comes to town, the buildings are sold out, and we usually get everybody’s A game. We’ve got to be ready to bring it night in and night out.”

To that end, he will look for Forsbacka Karlsson to build on his 30-point effort last season. He “was on the All-Rookie Team last year and is a high-profile guy. He’s mature beyond his years. We’re really anticipating him making the next step as an all-around player,” Quinn says. “I think we’ll be a little bit deeper this year up front, which will allow him to maybe free up a little bit. We’re going to lean on him heavily.”

On the other side of the puck, the coach highlighted McAvoy as a player he hopes will embrace a leadership role. “I see a more mature player and a more mature person. He’s been the youngest player on every team he’s ever been on,” he says. “This is going to be his first real opportunity to be a leader, and he’s done a great job of it so far. Guys gravitate toward him, and it’s been a lot of fun watching him grow.”

Tonight’s game marks the first time a men’s hockey regular-season game will be broadcast online in high-definition as part of the program’s new partnership with Campus Insiders, announced September 27. A nonconference matchup with Quinnipiac on Saturday will be BU’s last chance to tune up before Hockey East play begins.

“This is one of the most competitive conferences in the NCAA, if not the most competitive,” Olsson says. “Every game is hard-fought, and there are no easy points in this league. Every day you have to show up and go to work.”

Quinn hopes that the chemistry that has already formed in the Terrier locker room will carry the team through a long season in the spotlight. “I love how they’ve all blended in,” he says. “Our upperclassmen have done a great job bringing them into the culture and into the hockey program. You walk in that locker room and you can’t tell who the freshmen or the juniors are.”

While he is excited about the makeup of his team and the most recent crop of recruits, the veteran coach’s experience has taught him to temper expectations and be wary of praise that’s not yet earned.

“I’ll let you know in four years,” he says. “I’ve been around way too long watching hyped players or hyped classes, where you scratch your head after the four years are over and say, well that’s not how I thought it was going to work out. Let’s let the dust settle. They’re still freshmen.”
