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 .

Send Links to Any Nearby Device with CaastMe

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...

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

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...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
