Custom ROM Feature Comparison Database

With choice comes power, and with power comes responsibility. And in the world of custom ROM flashing, that responsibility means choosing the right ROM and kernel combination to fit your needs—well that, and making sure you read all of the instructions so that you don’t brick your expensive device.

We recently featured a simple, yet powerful Xposed module that brings many previously ROM-specific features to any ROM, as long as you have XDA Recognized Developer rovo89‘s Xposed Framework (thread) installed. However in certain circumstances, there’s no replacement for displacement running the feature’s original ROM. And in these cases, it’s important to know about your available options.

To help new users determine which ROM they might want to try first, XDA Senior Member nimrodity created an intricate ROM database, which lists various features broken down into different categories and other specifics. Before users take this as canon, please note that there is a rather large issue preventing this from being an even more useful resource: The currently available list only examines recent builds of CyanogenMod, PACman, SlimBean, Carbon, and Revolt. Unfortunately, this means that other fantastic options such as AOKP, Paranoid Android, and Omni are nowhere to be found.

Head on over to the database thread to learn more. Despite the omissions listed above, this can be a great into primer for new users not yet sure about which option to try first.

DexPatcher: Patch Android APKs Using Java

You've probably seen or installed modified applications, be it a patched dialer for your resolution or a custom WhatsApp version with added features. How do developers do that, though? A lot of the time, the applications' source code isn't even available, so how does it all work? We'll see that first, then take a look at a new tool that aims to make the process much easier, and finally compare it to the popular Xposed framework to see how they...

M9: Is Throttling a Non-issue? Can’t We Trust Benchmarks?

When the first reports of the M9 overheating came to light, many forum users began a collective joke-round calling the phone a popcorn machine, a grill, and other unoriginal remarks that we’ve seen with every device that presents sign of overheating, from gaming consoles to graphics cards. In this sense, the internet is not very inventive, and the cycle of rehashed jokes re-surfaces on different products every year or so. This time it was the M9’s turn and it was...
