Primer on Using AROMA Installer with Your Development Work

By now, you should all be familiar with AROMA Installer by XDA Recognized Developer amarullz. As a brief primer for the uninitiated, AROMA installer is a powerful GUI that is accessible via most modern aftermarket recoveries such as TWRP and CWM.

The main purpose of AROMA Installer is to allow you to customize the installation of whatever tweaks, ROMs, kernels, and mods you may be installing. A popular example of this in practice is the popular ElementalX kernel for a range of devices by Recognized Developer flar2. Rather than simply installing when selected in your custom recovery of choice, this kernel gives users a host of options including max clock speed, GPU overclocking, thermal settings, governor options, and much more. In fact, these options (along with the kernel‘s generally superb performance and features) have earned a loyal user out of this particular 2013 Nexus 7 device owner.

So how do you go about using the AROMA Installer with your own development work? XDA Senior Member pankaj88 has created a brief guide showing you exactly how to get started quickly and efficiently. However, this is only a brief guide that doesn’t cover much of AROMA’s customization power. For that, XDA Recognized Contributor Dblfstr has created a separate tutorial thread that covers AROMA, as well as various other questions related to the Edify language and updater-scripts in general.

Head over to pankaj88’s primer thread to get started. Then once you’ve learned the basics and want to get a little more in depth into the power of AROMA, visit Dblfstr’s tutorial thread.

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...

New Cyanogen Partnerships Bring Privacy Concerns

The concerns arise when you look at both announcements together. At face value they may appear to be the beginning of Cyanogen’s plan to “take Android away from Google,” however there is certainly something more nefarious occurring. Along side the partnership with Microsoft, Cyanogen also recently announced...
