AROMA Installer & Filemanager Receives Major Update

Since its release, AROMA Installer by XDA Recognized Developer amarullz has become a pretty popular way for developers and ROM chefs alike to allow users to customize the ROM installation process. If you aren’t already familiar, it is a GUI that runs after you select the ROM you wish to flash in recovery. AROMA can offer you various choices such as different kernels, system apps, launchers, themes, or whatever the developer has decided and allow you to choose between.

Until recently, it took a fair amount of tinkering to make the installer compatible with some devices. Thankfully due to a recent update and a new Input/Touchscreen handler courtesy of Recognized Developer agrabren, the installer no longer requires calibration and may well be popping up on more and more devices in future.

This same good news also extends to another project by amarullz: AROMA File Manager, a tool that allows you to manipulate the file system of your device from recovery. While the installer update is probably more relevant to developers, the file manager is a powerful tool for both developers and end-users alike. Check out the respective Installer and File Manager threads for more information.

Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
