4.3-Based PAC-man Nightlies Coming to a Device Near You

By now, you’ve undoubtedly heard of the PAC-man ROM. That’s to be expected, as we’ve featured it on the Portal a few times in the past. For the uninitiated, this source-built ROM combines several of the standout features from CyanogenMod, AOKP, and Paranoid Android into one glorious, large-scale kang project. After all, who wants to choose between the three if you can have much of the best from all of them in one package?

So, what exactly goes into PAC-man ROM? A good deal of the key features from the three main components. Plus, PAC-man now packs Pac in Black, which is the developers’ own take on a fully inverted UI.

In other words, you can use Paranoid Android’s Hybrid Mode and PIE controls, AOKP’s ROM Control, and CyanogenMod’s DSP Manager all in one ROM—and that’s just scratching the surface. It is important to note, however, that each component ROM includes more features than what is included in PAC-man.

Since the ROM is built from source by a large group of dedicated developers and maintainers, there are builds available for just about every popular device you can think of. In fact, their supported devices list totals over 120 devices, with 74 now receiving the latest Android 4.3 nightlies.

Those looking for a little bit of everything should consider giving PAC-man ROM a shot, if they haven’t already. To install the ROM on your own device, head over to the appropriate PAC-man thread in your home forum. A current list of devices featuring the latest 4.3-based nightlies, along with the maintainers responsible, can be found in the list below compiled by XDA Forum Moderator Papa Smurf151. And in the spirit of sharing, the team has made the entire project open source, with sources available on the project’s Github.

More information about the PAC-man ROM can be found in the links below:

[Many thanks to Papa Smurf151 for giving us the heads up and compiling the list of supported devices.]

CloudPlayer: DIY HiFi Music Streaming Solution

In our Helpful Guide to Music Streaming Services, we mentioned several different services that offer ways to stream catalogs of music directly to your device. While each service has their benefits and drawbacks, the common theme among them is to give you access to a vast library of music without the need to store your own, and charge you a monthly fee for the privilege. But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...
