#TBT: Bugless Beast, the One and Only

If I’m not mistaken, Peter Alfonso, the man behind Bugless Beast, hasn’t been into Android development for a bit of time, but at one point a few years ago, everyone knew his name, or at the very least, knew of his work. If you don’t know, Bugless Beast was a custom ROM, downloadable on an assortment of different Android devices and I would safely argue that it was one of the most popular things we would post about back in the day. Maybe that and “Nexus Prime.”

Looking back, I can’t pinpoint an exact reason why everyone loved Bugless Beast so much, but there are plenty who will tell you that it was smooth, jank-free, and clean. I suppose the reason is in the name, Bugless. Peter’s vision for Beast was to provide a, “completely stable ROM,” and I think that was accomplished quite well.  (more…)

New Bugless Beast Released for Verizon Galaxy Nexus

Our buddy, Peter Alfonso, released new builds of Bugless Beast for the Galaxy Nexus on Verizon, along with a handful of other devices. This new build is based off of the latest source and proprietaries, so basically, you will be running the newest version of Android available. As always, you can expect a stable ROM from Pete, plus a slight tweak here or there to enhance performance. He has never been into gimmicky hacks and overdone mods – it’s always kept classy.

Custom ROM Friday: Peter Alfonso’s Bugless Beast for the Galaxy Nexus

We have been following Peter Alfonso’s work ever since the beginning, so whenever we see him pump out new ROMs, we like to give them some spotlight. This release is Bugless Beast for the Galaxy Nexus. Downloads for the ROM have been available for a bit now, but with him constantly updating it and there even being nightlies, we figured we should point everyone to the newest and best download that’s available.  (more…)

Pete Brings Back Bugless Beast, Updates Original DROID to Android 2.3.7

Now that is a name we haven’t heard in some time, “Bugless Beast.” The original DROID ROM that was one of the staples back in the day has returned thanks to our buddy Peter Alfonso. Instead of continuing on with his GPA series, he’s going back to Bugless as the name is just to sweet to let retire. He has also added support for a handful of other devices like the Nexus S, Nexus One and DROID Incredible (beta) that are probably worth checking out. OG DROID owners though, you can feel good knowing that you are running Android 2.3.7 before most of the rest of the world.

Downloads available in ROM Manager.

More info. Changelog.

Cheers Mike and Kris!

Download: Stock Android 2.3.2 for Original DROID by Peter Alfonso

Original DROID users, it’s time to get your Gingerbread on and you can thank our friend Peter Alfonso for it.  With most of us accepting the fact that the OG will never see an official Android 2.3 build from Moto, Pete has taken it upon himself to make sure you get damn close.  His newest ROM is a stock AOSP 2.3.2 build which is about as new as you’ll see, but the plans are for this to be updated as Google updates, meaning you’ll definitely see 2.3.3 the minute it’s available.  And when I say “stock” I’m not messing around.  Sure, he tweaked some things here and there to give you a great experience, but on the outside, it will look just like an official update that you have received OTA.  Stock launcher, ringtones, wallpaper, boot animation and neural network live paper are all included, so this won’t feel like a “custom” ROM, but that’s the point.

The goal is for this to become a way to keep the hundreds of thousands of OG users running the latest Android build.  You’ll notice in the filename below a “GPA10” which is the start of his naming convention.  As you see that number continue to rise, that will likely mean that you need to update to the latest build.

And if you don’t want that 100% stock feel, don’t worry as he’ll be adding features to Bugless Beast.

Thanks Pete!

Bugless Beast V0.6 Released with Bits of Gingerbread

It has arrived. In an interview we had with Pete not too long ago, he announced that Bugless Beast Version 0.6 would be a ‘from source’ ROM. Mmm, from source. It has been released and just in time for it to snag some nice goodies from Gingerbread.

Even from first boot I can tell people will like this. With only an 800MHz kernel running, this thing flies. So after the jump get the download link and have yourself a scoop of Bugless!   (more…)

Custom Theme Friday: RZ Alien Darkness for BB V0.5

Another great week down!  We had Kellex at OpenFeint in my neck of the woods (That was fun.).  We got 4G on the Droid Incredible? And I’m changing the name of the IRC to CCROM-Life? More about that after the break…or not.

So since the release of Bugless Beast Version Zero Point Five, I have been looking for a theme to throw on top and I think I have found someone who knows what I’m shooting for. Widgets, whole APK’s, Pulldown Menu, and even your Mommas Pajamas are themed here! Yes, please!

I present RZ Alien Darkness by ‘RaidZero’.  Enjoy… (more…)
