2.6.35 Kernel Successfully Ported To Hero CDMA

Getting an Android device to work is no easy feat. There is a lot of work that goes way past rom cooking, particularly when dealing with ports. This is particularly true when it comes to the kernels. Most end users will likely see a rom that is presented with fixes and this can usually lead to the misconception that the fix was done in the rom as opposed to the kernel. After much work by several XDA members including Decad3nce, riemervdzee, and Elemag , XDA member s0be has decided to release his port of 2.6.35 out into the wild and it seems that the dev did a good job as all sensors, radios, etc are working right out of the box. A very good day for Hero users indeed!

Everything should be working fine right now, but please leave any feedback if you come across any errors.

I now consider this Release Candidate quality. Please do report issues (with logcats and dmesgs). Check the known bugs, etc, etc.

You can find more information in the kernel thread.

The LG G4 has a lot to prove, given that last year’s LG G3 was among the best smartphones of 2014. The Global Mobile Awards given out during the time of MWC 2015 named it the Smartphone of The Year (SOTY?) alongside the iPhone 6, and at the time of its release it packed the very best in Android specifications, from the powerful Snapdragon 801 to the class-leading 1440p display. The camera, battery life and feature set were also deemed...

DexPatcher: Patch Android APKs Using Java

You've probably seen or installed modified applications, be it a patched dialer for your resolution or a custom WhatsApp version with added features. How do developers do that, though? A lot of the time, the applications' source code isn't even available, so how does it all work?
