PACman ROM for the T-Mobile Galaxy S III and HTC One S
As our readers are no doubt aware, the PACman ROM kang has appeared on a variety of devices. It’s a truly unique concept. It represents much of the best that AOSP has to offer currently all in a single package. It’s been spreading across XDA, and it seems like it’s going to keep going. PACman is now available on the HTC One S and the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S III.
XDA Recognized Developer klin1344 released the ROMs for both devices. Both ROMs are surprisingly stable. Outside of some initial problems here and there, users have reported that both ROMs are fairly stable and users can flash them as daily drivers. Of course, users are reporting some issues, but most of them so far have been from inexperience with various settings menus. As klin1344 explains:
Attention! Because this is a mashup of CM10, AOKP, and PA, there are some settings that might conflict with others because they are duplicate. Please keep that in mind before you begin to wonder if there is a bug in this ROM. Thanks.
So if you’re having problems deciding which AOSP ROM to flash, why not try all at once? Just head to the Galaxy S III PACman thread or the HTC One S PACman thread for more details.

Android M has answered the call of battery by adding in a deeper sleep implementation than existing deep sleep. This comes in the form of Doze. The feature make use of the devices sensor to smartly recognize when you have left your device for an extended period. During this period, wakelocks will be minimized. However, you can still continue on receiving higher priority notifications. Needless to say, this does have a tradeoff of not having up to date syncs across...
