Extensive Plugin Pack for the Dsixda Kitchen

There are many on XDA who aren’t a big fan of ROM kitchens. While the argument can be made that it causes a lot of beginners to post repeat works, they can also spark interest in Android development when used properly and their products are not distributed as original work. There are many great developers and even some moderators who started out with kitchens. Likely the most well known kitchen is the dsixda kitchen by Recognized Developer Dsixda.

A plugin pack has been released for the popular kitchen. XDA Forum Member stupidjerkheadface had created a number of modifications for the kitchen. They eventually turned into plugins, and now they are available for public consumption. As stupidjerkheadface states:

I did nothing fancy here. I wrote a few plug-in scripts to adapt the actions. Everything seems to work fine and has been tested on other environments. . . although all linux-based.

There are some interesting features discussed, although there is no official list of features. One such feature is a plugin that will extract RUU.exe files and turn them into zip files. You’ll need Wine installed on your Linux distro to use it, but it is still a pretty unique feature. There is also a HTC splash screen creator plugin, for those who like to fancy up their splash screens.

For more info and downloads, check out the original thread.

Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
