You may recall a while back that we mentioned a new project we’ve been working on behind the scenes here – XDA-University. We’re proud to announce that the first version of XDA-U is now available at XDA-University.com.
We listened to your feedback, in that you wanted it to be easier to get started with development, and learn more about how to make your own ROMs, kernels, and other tweaks for your phone. As such, we set about getting some of our users (to whom we are incredibly grateful) to share some of their knowledge about Android development. While they’ve tried to make this as easy as possible to get going with, we’re sure you will still have questions, so we have also opened an XDA-University forum where you can ask any questions you may have, and get help.
The key thing about XDA-U is that it’s never going to be finished! If you’re a developer, or someone who wants to get involved in helping more people to learn about Android, and getting the chains off their device, we’d love to hear from you – please don’t hesitate to get involved!
Finally, we’d like to extend our thanks to everyone who was involved in getting XDA-U to where it is today. We’d also like to thank everyone who gets involved in future as well, and helps to make XDA-University even more useful for everyone to learn from!

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this. But a particularly...
The first gen of Android One devices to be launched in India in September 2014 were decent starter smartphones, featuring budget specs and a promise of fast updates. However, the phones did not pick up as big a response as Google hoped. Now, as per a report by The Economic Times, it appears that Google is rethinking their strategy towards Android One in India. The first gen Android One devices focused on first time smartphone users, but were flawed in...
