MyHUB Distribution Network for all Sense ROM Developers

As a developer, making sure that your users are running the latest version of your creation is always a challenge. This is then compounded when you’re dealing with modifications such as kernels, ROMs, and skins rather than applications that can be set to automatically update through Google Play. In order to help alleviate this, XDA Senior Member mikrosmile created myHUB to serve as a hub for all Sense-based ROM developers.

The project originally began as an addition to the DarkSense ROM on the HTC Sensation, as a way to seamlessly provide updates and compatible downloads. However, now the application has been rebuilt with additional features such as an OTA engine and more.

 So what can you do with myHub, the OTA engine, and its other applications? According to the developer:

Features of myHUB:

  • Provide News
  • Provide any Download sections you want (Skins, System MODs, Icons, Keyboards, Kernels)
  • Full preview of your Content
  • Automatic installation of apk or zip files
  • Automatic checking of MD5
  • In-app updates from myHUB Developer
  • Ease configuration of myHUB (one txt file in your System)
  • On-line updates (changes) of all your Content

Features of myHUB OTA:

  • Provide ROM updates (as easy as possible) with almost similar to HTC’s OTA
  • You can provide Full ROMs or Small size OTA
  • Add your Changelog
  • Checks current version with latest available on your Server

Features of myHUB Web:

  • Provide any web link together with news and open inside app
  • Fully featured web browser

Features of myHUB Files:

  • Install any apk or zip files (Zip installation through Recovery)
  • Open any file through Favorite apps (Images, Audio, Video files, Text, etc)
  • Checking of MD5 of files (Simple calculation of MD5, enter MD5 to check if correct)
  • Manipulate with files (Cut, Copy, Delete, View properties)

Beneficial to both end users and developers, myHUB can dramatically streamline your update and discovery process. Head over to the original thread to get started.

CloudPlayer: DIY HiFi Music Streaming Solution

In our Helpful Guide to Music Streaming Services, we mentioned several different services that offer ways to stream catalogs of music directly to your device. While each service has their benefits and drawbacks, the common theme among them is to give you access to a vast library of music without the need to store your own, and charge you a monthly fee for the privilege. But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...
