Learn About Theming and Create Your Own Theme Easily

Android is extremely popular largely due to the fact that users can easily modify its look, which applications to use, and basically anything else. Changing your look is not only a wallpaper, launcher, or new icons. Rather, some deep changes can be done with custom themes that are not so hard to create.

With elementary knowledge of photo editing and a willingness to learn, you can create your own theme. XDA Senior Member Ayush Singh wrote a thorough guide on understanding the process of making a theme. The guide initially was aimed at the Sony Xperia Z1, but it can be used with almost every device, as themes don’t differ much in their structure. Ayush Singh presents the process with text and some screenshots, so so you can easily compare them to your own work in progress. Theming brings a lot of fun and can totally change the look of your device. With slight modifications, you can build a theme alongside your personal ROM.

You can find everything you need to create a theme by visiting the guide thread. Make your way there and start reading. And while you’re at it, check out yesterday’s interview with a popular theme creator.

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

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...

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion.
