LG Optimus Black Forums Added

We hadn’t added anything in a while, so after much deliberation and tons of requests, we have decided to give LG Optimus Black owners a little spot to play, hack, develop, and do everything that is normally done on XDA. The device seems a bit on the medium to low end side, considering some of the other higher end devices that LG has been putting out lately. However, it still packs quite a punch with  a 1 GHz OMAP 3630 processor from Texas Instruments, 512 MB, and a few other features including a very slim profile, the “now” mandatory 5 MP camera, and a few other perks. The only downside of this device is that it comes loaded with Froyo 2.2.1, which is likely the more reason for so many people requesting a forum for it, so that they can put Gingerbread on it (or Ice Cream Sandwich when the time comes).

Well, the ground has been broken, so now it is time to develop. Please pop in there if you have experience with this device, or if you can help people with things such as rooting, cooking roms, etc.

Material and Material Dark Hit Samsung’s Theme Store

The latest version of Touchwiz, launched alongside the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, was aimed at providing a vastly improved software experience in lieu of the bad reputation its predecessors had gained. While this iteration turned out to be a vast improvement in terms of lack of bloatware, fluidity and user experience, Samsung's OEM skin fell short in the aesthetics department by a long shot, abandoning a plethora of Material Design principles and leaving users wanting more. However, Theme Store...

Swappa’s New App Helps You Value Your Device

There comes a sad time in everyone's life where you must part ways with your gadgets. Perhaps they are dropped from a height, carelessly hardbricked, or simply stashed in a drawer in favor of a shinier upgrade. Alternatively they might enter the world of the second-hand market, and become someone else's daily driver. Swappa is especially popular for this purpose here at XDA, where thousands of users trust the site enough to buy and sell their devices through it.
