April Fools Day is once again upon us and as usual, tech companies everywhere have not failed to keep us entertained. With a trove of fantastic faux product launches and even some real product launches that were taken as April Fools jokes, people have been busy releasing their hilarious ideas. With many of these jokes being nostalgic and some even being functional it's easy to appreciate the spirit behind them. Samsung Galaxy Blade Edge In a reference to the Galaxy...
Port the Lidroid Notification Toggles to Non-Samsung ROMs
If you’re a fan of the notification toggles found in XDA Senior Member lidroid‘s series of ROMs for various Samsung devices, you may be hesitant to switch to a different ROM or even a different device. After all, as we discussed earlier, notification toggles are quite useful, and having more of them is never a bad thing. Thankfully, XDA Senior Member Adi Aisiteru Reborn has created a guide showing you how to port the toggles over to various non-Samsung Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich or Android 4.1 Jelly Bean ROM.
The guide first instructions you to decompile SystemUI.apk, and then it walks you through the values you will need to modify. Naturally, you need to know how to decompile and recompile APK files, but there’s a guide for that. You will also need some patience and a little bit of experience, as the guide doesn’t cover all of the basics involved in the process. However, if you’ve decompiled an APK and made some modifications before, you should be fine.
In addition to the 21 lidroid toggles, Adi Aisiteru Reborn has also added additional toggles made by Recognized Themer serajr.
we are going to port 21 Lidroid toggles :
( -Lock screen/screen-off action, -Reboot action, -Shutdown action, -Airplane mode, -Bluetoth, -Brightness, -GPS, -Flashlight, -Lockscreen, -MobileData, -Orientation, -ScreenTimeOut, -Sound, -Sync, -Wi-fi, -Wi-fi Hotspot, Battery info, Stay awake, USB Connection mode, USB Debugging, Network mode )

The beginning of April is dominated by April Fools. There are jokes and pranks everywhere, which are meant to fool people. This news is no joke though, as Google has pushed the shiny red button to send out over-the-air updates to supported devices. Well, sort of, as only a few of available Nexus devices got updates to Android 5.1. Here's a list of OTAs that can be downloaded and flashed by stock recoveries. You can find guides on how to revert...
Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors. I speak, of course, about April Fools Day. As has become their custom, Google launched lighthearted "pranks" for each of their various services (with other tech sites and vendors following suit), and we have done our best to round up the humorous products and tweaks surfacing thus far....
