Manage All Your Boot Animations with Bootanimation Utility

Sometimes, for however short amount of time it may be on for, it’s nice to be greeted by your phone by a potentially awesome boot animation. Now, that’s all well and good, but getting the boot animation onto your phone and setting it to run is usually best done with an app. I’m sure there are an array of different boot animation applications on the market. However, here at XDA we like to support budding developers in what they love to do. So, that being said, say hello to Bootanimation Utility by XDA member arayray.

The app is only developed up to version 1.0.2, but despite that, after installing the provided apk onto my device and downloading “CM7″, one of the four available animations (out of CM7, CM7 Big bang, Green Honeycomb and Blue Honeycomb), I found it to work very well considering its early stage.

Backing up your current animation is easy to do with the click of a button, as is importing an animation. The system seems to be very streamlined. But don’t forget, you will need a rooted device for this to work.

Would The LG G4 Fare Well With The Snapdragon 808?

The LG G4 has a lot to prove, given that last year’s LG G3 was among the best smartphones of 2014. The Global Mobile Awards given out during the time of MWC 2015 named it the Smartphone of The Year (SOTY?) alongside the iPhone 6, and at the time of its release it packed the very best in Android specifications, from the powerful Snapdragon 801 to the class-leading 1440p display. The camera, battery life and feature set were also deemed...

DexPatcher: Patch Android APKs Using Java

You've probably seen or installed modified applications, be it a patched dialer for your resolution or a custom WhatsApp version with added features. How do developers do that, though? A lot of the time, the applications' source code isn't even available, so how does it all work? We'll see that first, then take a look at a new tool that aims to make the process much easier, and finally compare it to the popular Xposed framework to see how they...
