Android was always considered as a mobile operating system. While phones and tablets are over 95% of devices running Android, developers put lots of effort to make Google's OS available for other platforms. You've probably heard of Bluestacks, which brings the Android world to PCs, Macs and TVs. The American company is just one of the many brands that ports the Android OS to personal computers. In June 2014, the Console OS team launched its Kickstarter campaign for a system that...
New Chef Central Sub-Forum Added
Are you new to the world of Windows Mobile or Android? Or are you a seasoned veteran who has flashed device(s) more times than you can count but always felt that everyone else’s ROMs were missing that “extra touch”? Well, wait no more. A new section has emerged at xda-developers, which will focus mainly on teaching eager students how to cook and develop. It’s called Chef Central. Here’s the announcement:
Welcome to Chef Central. The purpose of this forum is to provide a learning environment for XDA users that truly want to learn the craft of ROM development. It is monitored and moderated by skilled developers that you know from our community. These developers are willing to generously give of their time to help teach the eager learners among you.
Please use this forum by posting questions. As with posting anywhere on XDA, please search before you post to make sure that your topic of question hasn’t been covered in the past.
Finally, we ask that those of you that use this forum respect the developers. Please don’t ask for developers to give you access to their kitchens or other unique resources. Also, please respect each other, because no one wants a flame war =D.
If you have any specific questions about this forum or want to help with it in any way, please PM me.
P.S. Chef’s Central is a bit of an experiment…something we’ve really never done before. As such, it may be a big success with great things to come in the future, or it may just not make sense for XDA.
P.P.S. Please use the Rate Thread option to help the best information stand out!
But don’t get scared yet, this isn’t just for experts or people who know what they are talking about. This section is also aimed at the new aspiring chef, who wants to make it to the big leagues in their respective device sections. Granted that this will take a lot of time, reading, and asking questions, but once you get it… well, you will probably still have questions, but at least you will be wiser and will have a better understanding on how things work.
In here, you will find discussions, cooking guides (both general and device specific), porting guides, kitchen resources, tools, and much, much more.

There are many things to love about the mobile industry, and when it comes to Android, I think one of them is that there's something for just about everyone. The OEMs of today cover many different demographics for those that want this, or that. And things like a phone's design aren't excluded either - but what I think is really interesting about this last bit is just how apparent the different approaches are. I'm not just talking about the aesthetics,...
