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...
Flash Different Text Fonts Through AROMA with FontFly
One of the simplest ways of giving your Android interface a new and refreshed look is to change the default font. Achieving this is easy, as all that’s required is switching the .ttf files in one of the system directories, hence the abundance of third-party apps in the Play Store requiring root access. And if you’re a user of one of the few ROMs that can change fonts for you, well, all the better!
But for those who are not running ROMs with this function, or who are aware of the possibilities of bootloops and other unpleasant issues from using a third-party app, you may want to check out XDA Senior Member xminirom’s FontFly AROMA package. FontFly is essentially an AROMA mod pack that houses a myriad different fonts that you can flash onto your device. There are 134 fonts in all.
Because of this large collection, xminirom splits FontFly into two parts to prevent the AROMA package from taking up too much space on your device’s storage. This also makes it significantly easier to find the font you’re looking for. And if you’re worried about not recognizing any of the confusing font names, there’s no need, as FontFly displays a preview of the font in AROMA itself.
If you’re interested in finding out more about FontFly, or have any questions to ask, head over to the original thread for more information.

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...
