Aroma Installer Gets its First Port to Samsung Galaxy SL
Awhile ago, we told you about a pretty nifty tool called the Aroma Installer that gives users the choice to install pretty much whatever application or mod that they want onto their ROMs. The best part about the Installer is that it is open source, so it could be ported at any time.
This brings us to the Samsung Galaxy SL i9003, which got itself a port of the awesome installer courtesy of XDA Member TheFrankenstain. The build is a beta release and still needs a few things fixed, but so far the project looks fairly stable.
The features added to this iteration of Aroma include:
-Bravia Engine (is in MIUIv8)
-Vurrut Kernel v3
-MIUI v4 theme (Very nice)
-CPU Control addon
-added vurrut V3 kernel install
There are a few bugs, as to be expected with a beta release. Thus far the Installer only works with a specific build of MIUI and some of the smaller mods don’t install properly just yet. There is a push to get more developers in on the project to help fix bugs and make their ROMs compatible, so it could be only a matter of time before things get really rolling.

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
