Auto-Patcher Kicks Performance and Privacy into High Gear
As many Android users know, modifying a custom ROM you did not build can sometimes be cumbersome. What’s worse is that with newer iterations of the OS, many older modifications including V6 Supercharger and PDroid don’t quite work out of the box. Thanks to XDA Forum Members mateorod and pastime1971, loading both has been made easier, thanks to their latest application: Auto-Patcher.
Simply load up your Linux box (yes this script is only for Linux at present), run the application, select your ROM and modifications desired, and Auto-Patcher completes the modifications for you, ensuring that the optimal versions of the modifications are applied to your ROM. Once completed, just flash the ROM as you normally would, and enjoy the faster, safer experience that awaits you.
So head on over to the original thread and have a go at the guide.

Swappa is especially popular for this purpose here at XDA, where thousands of users trust the site enough to buy and sell their devices through it. In fact, we made...
