Calling All Chefs (to Unify Naming Convention for Start Menu Icons)

A recent call from one of XDA’s popular chef NRGZ28 has just been made to all the chefs.  He is calling all chefs together to bring a unified naming convention to all Start Menu icons across all ROMs.  With this idea NRGZ28 is planning to bring ease and convenience to icon creators, chefs, and even users.

I would like to propose a standard.

A standard of naming ALL start menu icons using the “Start_Icon_XXXXX.png” format. This way, users wanting a different, uniform, iconset can request their favorite icon maker (people like Dinik for example) make a cab with this naming convention, where they can just install the cab and be ready to go!

To make a long story short, I propose all ROMs made on XDA, follow the format of “Start_Icon_Contacts.png” or “Start_Icon_FileExplorer.png”. Half of this is already don’t for us by microsoft, but HTC doesn’t always follow it. However, we, as chefs, can easily rename these files before we cook a ROM.

I’ll start doing this for all my ROMs, probably with the next update I will put it out… Let’s make it easier on users to user their favorite iconset, without complicated apps needing to be used to change them one by one… it’s such a PITA (especially when you reflash!).

Chefs join the discussion over on the thread!

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Drop Test

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are already proving to be amongst the head turners of 2015. From favoring their inhouse Exynos 7 SoC over the Snapdragon 810 SoC (which ended up causing issues to its main rival); to ditching the removable battery and micro sd card slot in favor of a more "premium" device, the flagship duo have a lot going on for them at this stage. Regarding the premium redesign which replaced plastic with metal and glass,...
