We are delighted to announce that starting on April 20th, a finalized deal with Google will make XDA Developers a software development division for the beloved search giant.

A new set of XDA Forum Moderators from Google’s Legal Department will also make sure that...
Build CM10, AOKP, and TeamBaked for the Transformer Prime
Quality, source-built ROMs can transform devices ordinarily held back by manufacturer limitations. When CyanogenMod or AOKP are released for a device, pretty much everyone is happy about it. Of course, a lot of work goes into building such ROMs, and developers often provide guides on how to do it. Now, ASUS Transformer Prime users have a tutorial to build not one, but three AOSP-based ROMs thanks to XDA Senior Member craigacgomez.
Included in the tutorial are instructions for building CyanogenMod 10, AOKP, and TeamBaked AOSP ROMs. The tutorials are written for Ubuntu 12.04, so if you’re not running Ubuntu or a distro based on Ubuntu, then this tutorial isn’t going to work very well. The guide also outlines all the packages users will need installed, how to download the source for all three ROMs, and, of course building.
In addition to the basic build instructions, craigacgomez has included a mod or two to make sure the builds work properly. Users and developers who build AOSP often likely won’t learn anything new following the tutorial. However, if you have a Transformer Prime and are new at building from source, this is an excellent guide to use as a starting point.
For the full instructions, check out the original thread.

Luckily enough, users can use third party alternatives that bring more features. One such application is Hi Locker, developed by XDA Senior Member thotran7989. Hi Locker can be found both on the Play store and...
Here on XDA TV we have a series we like to call Must Have Apps. These are apps that we think are so great and useful that you must have them. We’ve given this title to such programs as Pushbullet, Light Flow, Helium, the AROMA File Manager, ROM Toolbox and Pocket Casts. But today we have an app that surpasses them all. Former XDA TV Producer Adam Outler offers up a must have application. In this video, XDA TV Producer...
