OnePlus has been teasing a new product for a while now, hailing it as a game-changer which isn't a tablet or a smartwatch. While speculations were rife about what this game-changing device could be, the company did confirm that the product was indeed a drone in their recent AMA.

Battery Icon Mod Just Released for Android
Yesterday, we published an article of some custom battery mods for the Epic that were being prepared by XDA moderator theimpaler747. XDA member appelflap has decided to team up with impaler747 and are working together in a one stop shop for battery mods… for as many devices as possible. The app seems to be rather simple to use with a very simple UI. Needless to say that if you are not that into heavy modding and hacking, this will give you a tool to change the look on your device easily.
The app currently supports the Epic and the Galaxy S and it is rom specific, meaning that you have to make sure the mod you are applying is for the rom that you currently have. The dev is working towards making this more universal, so if you have any tips or would like to help out, make sure that you drop a post or a pm for the dev.
(Joint project by me and theimpaler747)
Battery Icon Mod is a general app for turning the standard battery icon into something more useful and more sophisticated.
The (ambitious) goal is to serve mods with this app for as many devices as possible. Right now, only the Galaxy S and Epic (thanks theimpaler747) are supported.
You can find more information in the application thread.

If you are familiar with Xiaomi, you might have heard that they are not the most compliant when it comes to the General Public License that makes the core of Android open to us. The terms of the GPLv2 state that since the Android kernel is based on the Linux kernel, which is licensed under GPL,v2 Android has to be open-source for everyone to study or modify, and those that modify the Android kernel have to make their sources immediately available for...
