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.

MetroUI Now Available for the Asus Transformer
A few days ago, we talked about a new skin / UI that showed up for the Galaxy Tab 10.1. The MetroUI for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 was the creation of XDA Forum Member BroBot175, and it aimed at bringing a more simplified UI, resembling that of the up and coming Windows 8 operating system. The UI overlay works with tiles as widgets that have similar actions to those found in Windows 8 and Windows Phone 7. This is very well designed and has rightfully earned a place in the Portal, particularly of use for those not exactly happy with TouchWiz.
Thanks to the efforts of XDA Forum Member mrevankyle and the collaboration of BroBot175, Asus Eee Transformer owners can enjoy the same great looking experience in their tabs. Thanks to the wonders of the Villain Theme Engine, created by XDA Developer Administrator pulser_g2, this was successfully ported over for us to enjoy. Most features seem to be working properly, but as this is still a work in progress you are bound to run into a few bugs such as some widgets not working properly like the music player one. There are a few WP7 players in the Play Store that will help give your MetroUI the finishing touches.
Please try it out and leave any feedback so that bugs can be addressed.
mrevankyle kindly ported most of the theme for me as i have no experience in Villain Theme installer so all credit in porting this theme goes to him!

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...
