Install any Media Player You Want, AROMA Style
Every since AROMA Installer was first released and udpated, it’s been a pretty big hit. Users and developers alike can use it for a myriad of things, including removing bloatware and much more. Devs have been using it for quite some time to give users options when flashing and installing ROMs, tweaks, and mods. Now, there is a mod that uses AROMA installer to let you select your music and video players.
XDA Senior Member Nick Fury released an AROMA Installer-based mod with a pretty decent list of free music and video players on Android. The premise is to let users run the installer and pick their favorite video and music player, no matter what ROM they may be running. The music and video players included are:
-Act 1 Video Player
-Moai FLV Player
-Stick It Video Player
-Super Video POP UP
-VLC BETA NEON
-Clean Music Player
-Double Twist Player
-EZ Folder Player
-Meridian Music Player
-Senior Music Player
Installation is easy, even if you’ve never used AROMA before. Flash the zip in custom recovery, and AROMA will open. Select which music and video players you want installed on your device. The installer will install them then reboot. If you want a quick install for your favorite media applications, this is definitely something to check out. Please note that the media players offered are trial versions, when applicable.
