Android Jellybean has been a sensation since its release and every android device owner would want a touch of its new intuitive features. Currently, HTC myTouch 4G has got the Jellybean package from Cyanogen and it came out just a day after the first Jellybean ROM for Android came out. This is not an official release but it will give some idea into the new features of Jellybean.
myTouch 4G users also can experience the great features of the Jellybean like smoother interfaces, enhanced capabilities, better and smarter keyboard, improved and efficient notifications area and advance voice recognition and search functionality with the help of the CyanogenMod 10 package for Android Jellybean.
This package is still in development phase and thus will not support full functionality of the device. We will always find bugs and apps that don’t work. Some features here show their compatibility with the package.
Features that works
- Camera works with some problems which are: 1. 5MP leaves a green line on the side. 2. FFC doesn’t work. 3. Video camera doesn’t work at all.
- All the basic stuff like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi etc. work just fine
Features that don’t work
- LED doesn’t work
- Backlight will not work with auto-brightness option being set.
- Some basic apps will not work in this package too
But before you begin with the installation, it is important to backup all the data on the phone. This is because you can lose all the data during the process of installation. To backup the data please follow the instructions below.
- SMS – back up SMSes using “SMS Backup & Restore app”
- Contacts – backup contacts using the Gmail App
- Images, Songs, Videos, Files – store on an internal or external SD card
- APN and MMS settings – save the APN and MMS settings from the path “Applications > Settings > Wireless and Network > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names”
Once you are done with the backup process you can then proceed to the installation of CyanogenMod 10 package on to your device. But before you begin installation you must ensure that the USB debugging option is enable on your device and that your device has a good recovery mode.
