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.
