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.

HTC Sensation HQ Camera Mod Ported to EVO 4G LTE
With the camera quality becoming more important with new smartphones, making the cameras on already released devices can mean a lot. With applications that help cameras and their features on the rise, it’s no surprise that phone cameras are being frequently modded to perform better. One such modification for the HTC Sensation and HTC Vivid makes the camera much better. Now that mod is available to HTC EVO 4G LTE users as well.
The mod was ported to the EVO LTE by XDA Forum Member williamford. Not only is the mod available for download, but williamford also explains the method that was used to port it. This could be a good learning experience, as we here at XDA have been encouraging users to learn new things. It could also be handy for ROM developers who want to incorporate it into their ROMs.
For those who don’t know or have forgotten, the mod carries the following features:
Uncapped JPEG File size. Great photo quality.
Uncapped Video, recording 40MBPS.
Beta ISO 1250
Further increases in quality from before.
Along with a couple of features added by williamford:
Also added in the shutter sound and geolocation toggles….everything seems to work well.
For an improved EVO LTE camera experience, head over to the original thread.

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...
