“With our focus shifting to CM 10.2 we mentioned that we would part ways with CM 10.1?s code branch via a final 10.1.3 release. The code in CM 10.1.2 was frozen in May, and since then we have included numerous bug fixes, features, and even devices. Today, we are starting the Release Candidate phase for CyanogenMod 10.1.3, based on Android 4.2.2,” CM team noted in a blog post.
CM 10.1.3 RC1 includes Privacy Guard functionality and SELinux (permissive mode), which were not available in stable builds until now. Depending on the bugs, CM team will release one or two more release candidates of CM 10.1.3 before the stable version and then it plans shelve the 10.1 code and work only on CM 10.2.
Note: If you have Android 4.3-based CM 10.2 builds on your device, it is important to wipe data and all before switching back to CM 10.1.3 RC1.

Nintendo: Nintendo Unveils 2DS, 3DS without 3D

Leave a Comment
Nintendo has unveiled a new handheld gaming device. Don’t get your hopes up, however, since this
isn’t a successor to the wildly popular 3DS. The device, dubbed the 2DS, acts as a side-grade rather than an upgrade. It is essentially the same as a 3DS, albeit without the 3D display. The 2DS is set to cost $129.99 (Rs 8,940 approx), which will be cheaper than the 3DS by quite a margin.

Along with the 3D, Nintendo has also ditched the original form factor of the DS handhelds. Instead of bearing the traditional clamshell-styled design that can be closed, the 2DS opts for a slate-like design where the device can’t be closed. Both the screens of the 2DS are visible on the same plane.


According to Nintendo, the 2DS maintains many of the same hardware features as Nintendo 3DS: dual screens, gameplay controls and touch-screen features. The system also has backward compatibility with the existing library of more than 2,000 Nintendo DS games, as well as access to wireless connectivity features like multiplayer online game play, Nintendo Video content and digitally distributed games in the Nintendo eShop.

Along with this, Nintendo also announced a price cut for the Wii U. The Deluxe Set of the console is now cheaper by $50, which brings its price down to $299.99 (Rs 20,640 approx). The company has also announced a Wii U bundle which will include the upcoming Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD.

The Nokia 515 has been crafted with close attention to detail, and an obsession with purity. The main body is constructed from a single piece of anodised, sandblasted aluminium, while Gorilla® Glass 2 protects the gently curved display, which is polarised for use in sunlight. For the keymat, which continues the gentle curvature, a new hardened polycarbonate resin was specially created.
The result is a lightweight, 11mm-thin body that combines the best in elegance and resilience.
