IFA 2014 preview: Note 4, Xperia Z3, and holy smartwatches! | Pocketnow Weekly 111

The Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin. You know it as “the ee-fa.” Old-timers might still call it the Berlin Radio Show. Stephen Schenck for some reason refers to it only by its cumbersome designation “I-F-A.” But however you refer to it, one of the world’s biggest electronics trade shows is coming very soon. And it’s bringing a lot of smartphone, tablet, and smartwatch news with it.

On today’s show, we run down the most interesting of IFA rumors, from Samsung’s mammoth Galaxy Note 4 to Sony’s more … Compact offerings. We’ll also discuss what we’re expecting from the likes of HTC and Microsoft, Huawei and ASUS, and about a billion other brands – and we’ll kick everything off with a no-doubt contentious debate on the merits of all these smartwatches that just came out of the woodwork. Joining us on the show today is special guest Stefan Constantinescu of TabDump, who we’re relying on for just the right amount of world-weary cynicism to keep our youthful enthusiasm in check.

If that’s the kind of podcast that taps your touchscreen, then the Pocketnow Weekly is the show for you! Join us live on the air today at 2pm Eastern (click here for your own local time) for Pocketnow Weekly 111 (or download the high-quality edited version of the show down in the Links section when it’s ready) and shoot your questions to podcast [AT] pocketnow [DOT] com for a shot at getting your question read aloud on the air.

Android “L” developer preview gets ported to HTC One (M7)

htc one android l

Other than the official Android “L” Developer Preview which is available for LG Nexus 5 and Asus Nexus 7 (2013) devices by Google, we’ve seen it ported to the Nexus 4 recently. We knew that this is not the end of it though, of course.

HTC One (M7) unexpectedly gets its own Android “L” Developer Preview port thanks XDA Senior Member ssrij and a team of developers. Nexus 4 port was kind of expected, but not this one. The port is still in alpha though, so keep this in mind if you intend on flashing it. The port was made possible thanks to ramdisk and kernel modifications which ssrij had to do. We say it once again, this is an alpha version of the port and some things will simply not work, at all.

Keeping all this in mind, if you’re interested in it follow this link.

Install Android L “Lemon Cake” Developer Preview on Nexus 4

Android_L_Nexus_4

Nexus 4 owners jealous of those with a Nexus 5 or 7 (2013) running the Android L Developer Preview can get a taste of the next version of Android thanks to developers at XDA Developers forum who ported the rom over to the device.

Since Google only pushed part of the source code to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) for the Nexus 4, the ROM is based on the Nexus 5 and 7′s (2013) Preview System Images and comes thanks to @sykopompos, @defconoi and @ben1066.

It should be noted that while it’s not fully functional yet, most things are working and  it “can be used as a daily driver for the majority of Android users.” Although that’s the case, remember that some apps may not work as developers haven’t updated them yet for the Android L release and since it’s a preview, some things may not work until the official release in the coming months.

Currently noted to not be working is:

  • Camera
  • Bluetooth
  • Swipe-to-Phone-Application not showing on lockscreen
  • SELinux and Knox
  • SuperSU/Root

To install the ROM, follow these instructions after downloading:

  1. Put the file onto your Internal Storage
  2. Reboot into Recovery (CWM/TWRP]
  3. “wipe data/factory reset”
  4. “mounts and storage” -> “format system”
  5. “advanced” -> “wipe dalvik cache”
  6. “install zip” -> “install zip from sdcard” -> choose the mako-bla-bla-zip and confirm flashing procedure
  7. “wipe cache”
  8. “advanced” -> “wipe dalvik cache”
  9. “reboot into system”
  10. first boot may take up to 10 minutes – be patient

At this time, it may be best to just install MultiROM and install the ROM that way, so that you can keep your daily driver. I found that the easiest way to install it is to download “MultiROM Manager” from Google Play and through the app, install MultiROM, recovery and kernel. When you boot into recovery, to install a ROM with MultiROM, you select “Advanced” >> “MultiROM” >> “Add ROM.” The settings I used were “Android” for ROM type, “Don’t share: kernel with Internal ROM and install to “Internal Memory,” then selected the ZIP file and flashed it. You can always delete the ROM then flash this ZIP in recovery to uninstall MultiROM. I included a video at the bottom of the post to show you a little bit more about installing a ROM with MultiROM.
