Cyanogenmod 7.2 RC2


After a while, Cyanogenmod RC 7.2 RC2 has been released. It was said that 7.2 stable release will be released soon. However it is noticed that, a subsequent release candidate is released for ZTE Blade and implies there may be a delay for stable version for this device. Whatsoever, with this release they assure many bug fixes and though a release candidate, it can be used like a stable version.

I am yet to check out the feature of this device though it was released on May 9. Meanwhile I was testing CM9, yeah the Ice Cream Sandwich version in my Idea Blade. Unfortunately it is not working after reboot and my SD card got corrupted. The interesting thing is many service personals yet to learn how to root an Android Device and I had to find out the actual issue from Googling and fix it by myself!

Well, as I said I am gonna check out this version and update you all soon. Stay connected and check out my previous posts. Please like and follow my blog and my facebook page.

How to free ROM in Idea Blade


Idea blade is coming with a ROM of 256 MB and user space will be nearly 60 MB. Once you start installing applications or updating it free memory will be decreased. Here are some useful ideas to free up your ROM.

Many pre-installed applications get updates via Google Play. Once you update these applications it is not ORIGINALLY updating the app but installing a newer version which in turn eat your internal memory. That is why when yo reset your system, your applications are able to return to original version.

There is an application called Apps2Rom is available to download. It helps to check if your device has duplicated applications. i.e., original application in ROM and its updated version. Your phone should be rooted to use this application. Once you open this app, you can see the list of applications in it. If any application is duplicated, (this can be identified by looking into the dot near the application. If you see two green dots near any application it means it is duplicated) you can replace your old version with latest one. By doing is you are uninstalling factory installed application and installing a fresher version. Further updates to this version will not create any duplicates.

Also, if your phone is rooted, you can try uninstalling your factory installed applications such as games, facebook,twitter,youtube,opera mini etc. This can save a lot of space. Many applications such as Root Uninstall and Root uninstaller etc, are available in Google Play for download. Try these.

These techniques are not limited to Idea Blade and can be tried in all supported Android devices.
