PAC ROM Updated to Android 4.4.2–More Sweets for Everyone

Since the release of Android 4.4.2, most custom ROMs have been rebased to Google’s latest and greatest. However, this transition isn’t always without issue, as it requires lots of work porting existing features to a newer OS version. Earlier today, we shared a guide on building PAC on your own PC, but now it’s a great time to start a fresh sync as PAC has now gone to Android 4.4.2.

PAC ROM still remains an All-in-One ROM, with all core features from Paranoid Android, AOKP, and CyanogenMod—hence the name PAC. And with the update to KitKat, the developers bring the following improvements:

  • All in One Rom [Core features from PA, AOKP and CM]
  • PAC in Black
  • Status bar tweaks
  • Quick Settings Panel tweaks
  • Notification Drawer tweaks
  • Lockscreen Notifications
  • Active Display
  • Appbar
  • Gesture Anywhere
  • Init.d scripts
  • Build.prop Mods
  • Statusbar Weather 
  • Recents RAM Bar
  • PAC Console
  • Latest Version Nightly Builds
  • OTA Updates
  • Changelog Viewer
  • Basically if there is a cool feature out there and it’s open source, then we will try to bring that feature into PAC-man (insert PAC-man eating a pellet sound here)
  • And of course: Android 4.4.2

As you can see, many cool features have been added here and there, and the ROM can finally be black like SlimROM. PAC is widely available for a large number of devices and has over 150 thousand total installations. A more detailed change log can be found on the team’s Gerrit and Github. The newest version of PAC can be found in various forum threads or on the official project website. You should also receive an OTA notification when the update is available for your device. Get your phones ready, as more and more ghosts will be eaten up by a happy yellow ball in the coming hours!

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...
