While there are frequent unexplained changes and pushes to Google's AOSP repositories, an interesting-looking new branch has been pushed out recently, called "master-soong". Taking a look at the changes made to the manifest repository (which is used to specify the repositories to be downloaded when building Android), it appears there are some new repositories making an appearance.

New Heefy’s Icon Set Available
Yet another set of icons surfaces on this site. This time, XDA member Heefy brings us an addition to his already popular GTX-inspired set of icons. This time around he added 48 new icons to encompass many requests and new apps available for our devices. So, if you were only missing that “one” icon for that app to make your device look perfect, you may want to stop by this developer’s thread.
I have the GTX theme installed on my Touch HD. I have had trouble finding a set of icons that go well with the GTX theme so decided to have a go myself. Although GTX inspired they appear to go well with other themes too.
Update 21/05/10. This is the beta set of icons. 21 more icons added. They do not complete the set yet as I am still working on them.
Update 25/05/10. 20 more additional icons added. They appear at the bottom of the preview.
Update 25/05/10. A few more icons added and a tidy uop of the upload package.
Update 26/05/10. 48 More icons uploaded. Mainly Application Icons.
Loads of stuff to do yet so please be patient and have a go yourself in the meantime.
You can find more information on the icons thread.

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...
Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...
