More AOSP Customization for Galaxy S II Skyrocket Users

One of the biggest perks of having an Android phone is the customization. Any given Android user can make any given Android phone look and behave how they want. Even without root, there are replacements for virtually any application that comes on whatever Android device you can think of. With root, the customization gets even more ridiculous. There are custom ROMs, kernels, mods, tweaks, scripts, themes, and even fixes to issues that were on the phone since launch. Where is a user to start? For AT&T Galaxy S II Skyrocket users, you can always start with AromaKoaK.

AromaKoak, or AROMA Kang of all Kangs is a set of modifications that users can choose to install on AOSP ROMs of their choice. Created by XDA Senior Member boobah204, it utilizes the popular AROMA Installer to let users pick and choose from a large number of modifications and customizations to install to their AOSP ROM. The modification pack is currently compatible with CM9, AOKP, and Chimaira flavors of AOSP. It packs a pretty impressive feature list, including:

You can change the system font, the boot animation, the transitions between screens, add sounds (hella sounds…) and a few more features. You can also flash this immediately after a new ROM and conveniently flash gapps, the agps patch by crypted, add root browser, tibu, and rom manager.. or fix permissions right away with a script from realpariah and minotauri. You flash this as many times as you want. Anytime you want to change something, just go to recovery and flash again.

Just flash this mod, pick which ones you want, and they install. To get started, head to the original thread.

Android M Code Name: Macadamia Nut Cookie

While the official name for the latest iteration of Android has yet to be revealed, the code name used internally by Google has been seen to be Macadamia Nut Cookie (MNC). This will almost certainly not be the final name for the release with rumors so far leaning towards milkshake, much like Key Lime Pie became Kit Kat and Lemon Meringue Pie became Lollipop. The acronym MNC has now also started to appear in several locations in AOSP, just look out...

Sunday Debate: Are Smaller Bezels Better or Worth It?

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience.   With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
