We are delighted to announce that starting on April 20th, a finalized deal with Google will make XDA Developers a software development division for the beloved search giant. This exciting transition will start as early as next week, where new XDA Talent Scouts from Google will browse our forums and reward the best contributors and offer them software development or design positions as well. A new set of XDA Forum Moderators from Google’s Legal Department will also make sure that...
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.

Hi Locker can be found both on the Play store and...
Here on XDA TV we have a series we like to call Must Have Apps. These are apps that we think are so great and useful that you must have them. We’ve given this title to such programs as Pushbullet, Light Flow, Helium, the AROMA File Manager, ROM Toolbox and Pocket Casts. But today we have an app that surpasses them all. Former XDA TV Producer Adam Outler offers up a must have application. In this video, XDA TV Producer...
