Backported PAC Performance for Android 2.3 and Later

There are always reasons for us to try new ROMs on our devices. Be it the UI stylings of the a particular offering, special feature not available elsewhere, or maybe it is just the right mix of built-in modifications meant to save you from flashing and installing individual mods on your current ROM. The problem here is that not all devices are capable of receiving the latest and greatest, no matter how hard a dev or group of devs may try. So, what if there is something that you love about a ROM but you simply cannot have it? That is when people like XDA Recognized Themer mariozawa come into play.

As the title of this article suggests, PACROM lovers out there who may not be able to update to the latest KitKat builds were likely missing out on PAC’s Performance app. Mariozawa decided to try and help those on lower versions of Android by backporting the Performance app. It offers all the same features that you will find from the actual app in PAC ROM, but without the need for KitKat–or even PAC ROM, for that matter. The only real requirement is that you need to have a rooted device. And considering the multitude of rooting options available on this site, the likelihood of meeting this requirement is quite high.

In any case, please be sure to check out the app if you are running anything on Gingerbread or above and see if it boosts your device’s performance. The dev states that there should not be any bugs, but if you do find some, get your favorite logcat app out and let the dev know. You can find more information in the backported PAC Performance app thread. Happy tweaking.

CloudPlayer: DIY HiFi Music Streaming Solution

In our Helpful Guide to Music Streaming Services, we mentioned several different services that offer ways to stream catalogs of music directly to your device. While each service has their benefits and drawbacks, the common theme among them is to give you access to a vast library of music without the need to store your own, and charge you a monthly fee for the privilege. But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...
