New WIP CyanogenMod Compiler Makes Compiling CM Easier Than Ever

Soon, compiling CyanogenMod for your phone will be as easy as opening a user interface and adding a little information. Or at least that’s the plan from CyanogenMod team member, and XDA Recognized Developer, lithid-cm, who has released an alpha version of this powerful new software which will, as the name implies, compile CyanogenMod for you.

As stated, it is an alpha release, so if you’re expecting to download it and start porting CM to every phone on XDA, then you should probably pull the brakes a little bit. The features as it is right now include:

Check for repo installation on startup / or create a repo
Add and remove devices quickly and easily.
Remove all non english languages.
Remove live wallpapers
Remove cm wallpapers
Check if adb is running or not.
Update the repo
Compile cyanogenmod
Built in color themes. > http://goo.gl/cED8t
Plugin support. (More information on this to come)
Odex plugin built into the package. This will take your connected cyanogemod installed phone and odex the rom on the phone.

And, as expected, there’s still a few problems as well:

There is nothing under the menu option 99. This is a placeholder for information about me and the compiler. If you select it it will just exit you out of the script.
There is no checking for installed software. You will need to install the needed packages on your own to compile. Check post 2 for needed software.
I have only tested this with ubuntu 11.04.
Removing the CM wallpapers from the build only works with gingerbread for now. Everything else is working as expected for me.
I don’t check for open ports on your network, so there might be issues connecting to the repos and syncing. I have not built error checking for that.

With a plethora of features still to be included and some bugs to work out, this beautiful, wonderful and purely awesome piece of software is definitely something the aspiring developer should be checking out. You can find more details, the features to come list, download links and installation instructions in the original thread .

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
