Forums Added for Ubuntu for Phones, Jolla Sailfish OS, and Android Stick Computers
When we covered the announcement of Ubuntu for Phones two days ago, many quickly demanded that we give the fledgling mobile OS a place in our forums. And with an impressive gesture-driven interface, as well as official support from Canonical, it was really only a matter of time. We’re just as excited as you are, and we can’t wait to see the development and porting that is sure to begin when the first builds are made publicly available.
In addition to the much requested forum for Canonical’s latest and greatest, we’ve created a forum for another, albeit somewhat more obscure, operating system known as Jolla Sailfish. Sailfish OS is based on the Mer project, which is the extant fork of the now-defunct open source MeeGo operating system. Promising compatibility with many unmodified Android apps thanks to the use of Myriad’s Alien Dalvik, Sailfish could indeed become an interesting prospect for some.
Finally, we have also given a home to all development on Android Stick Computers such as the popular Mk808 Mini PC. While not exactly a mobile device, these diminutive boxes carry many of the same internals as our mobile phones, and are powered by a mobile OS.
Those wishing to dive into the discussion can do so by visiting the newly created forums:

Close to the heart of XDA is the Xposed Framework by Rovo89. Most of us will have used it but you may feel that the module repository is missing something. We have the solution with several guides aimed at getting you started to build your own modules, something that may be daunting but can open an entire new field of development with a little time and effort. Where better to start than at the beginning? Rovo89 has created a straight forward tutorial for getting started with development for Xposed....
We recently did an in-depth review of the Asus Zenfone 2 but one of the things people may not be aware of is that ASUS has actually created a line of accessories to compliment the ZenFone, or any other Android device. The Lolliflash is a Lollipop-shaped external flash and the ZenPower is a thin 10,000mAh external battery. In today's video, Jordan shows off the Lolliflash and the ZenPower Accessories. Additionally, ASUS and XDA have teamed up to give away 5...
Now that the OnePlus 2 has been officially unveiled and that we have had close-up looks at the device itself, it is time for XDA users to begin discussing what to expect out of the company's new flagship phone.
