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.
