While there are frequent unexplained changes and pushes to Google's AOSP repositories, an interesting-looking new branch has been pushed out recently, called "master-soong". Taking a look at the changes made to the manifest repository (which is used to specify the repositories to be downloaded when building Android), it appears there are some new repositories making an appearance. Of note here are new prebuilt repositories for Go, and Ninja. Go is a programming language, created by Google, which compiles to produce...
Change Your Color Temperature On-The-Fly with CF.lumen for Chainfire 3D
Not too long ago, we wrote about Chainfire 3D, an intermediate proxy driver that allows you to control almost every aspect of your device’s rendering pipeline. Since then, several handy plugins have appeared around the Internet. The latest plugin comes straight from XDA Recognized Developer and Senior Moderator Chainfire himself.
CF.lumen intelligently modifies your device’s color temperature based on the time of day and relative solar position. Installation and use couldn’t be easier—simply provide the plugin with your geographic location, and it handles the rest. The fun doesn’t stop with the prebaked functionality, either. The color filters for day, sundown, and sleep are entirely end-user customizable. In the developer’s words:
CF.lumen changes the colors of your Android device’s display based on the position of the sun. With the default settings, your display will get a warmer tint (lower color temperature) when the sun is down, to look more like indoor lighting and less like the sun, which causes less strain on your eyes and doesn’t keep you awake as much.
This is an addon for Chainfire3D, you need to have both Chainfire3D and Chainfire3D Pro installed to be able to use CF.lumen

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...
Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...
