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.

Did you watch Apple's VP draw on his wrist during the Apple Watch announcement and wonder "why can't my Wear watch do that?" In typical XDA fashion, one enterprising forum member has brought similar functionality to Android Wear with a twist; it works on phones and watches alike, with other platforms on the way! The app is called Pinsy, and its release debut is a strong proof of concept with plenty of room to grow. You may remember the developer behind this project, XDA...
Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
