    Well, it didn’t take long for AOSP to find its way to Samsung’s newest Galaxy S flagship. Before the Galaxy S III has even reached North America, Cyanogenmod 9 and AOKP have already found their way to the root community, courtesy of Team Hacksung and Rootzwiki member netchip.

    Both ROMs use Team Hacksung’s device tree, which currently has the following issues:

    FM radio is not working (when’s the last time you used FM radio on your phone?).

    Camera flash is acting wonky, but the camera evidently works just fine without the flash.

    LED notifications are inactive when the phone is being charged.

    Please follow the installation instructions carefully for installing these two ROMs on your Galaxy S III devices, especially since the root, the custom recovery (an unofficial version of Clockwork Recovery), and the device tree are all very new. http://goo.gl/oKp1G

    In the usual Google fashion of celebrating things that you didn't think needed celebrating, summer means discounts. Discounts on apps in Google Play, that is. Google's "Longest Day of the Year" discount day is a great way to cash in on some new apps and games that you might have been holding out for, due to price. The sale is a one day event, but hey, it's the longest day, so you have extra time, right? http://goo.gl/jg6jb

    Whitehawkx and Team Kang has released an unofficial AOKP build 35 for the Samsung Hercules (that’s T-Mobile’s SGSII). Now, this is an unofficial build because at present, this is essentially a cluster of hack jobs and it cannot be merged with official source. Give thanks to Whitehawkx for maintaining this build himself over in the Team Kang Development forum! http://goo.gl/Hl1Rd
