Re-Bloat Your LG Revolution With Stock App Installer

While being rooted and having a custom ROM with all kinds of goodies are great, some users prefer the stock feel of their Android devices and like how they felt right out of the box—bloatware and all. It is with this in mind that XDA Senior Member mtmichaelson created an application to re-install any stock app that was removed with Gingervolt on the LG Revolution.

The application is pretty simple to use, and should be a process everyone is familiar with. Download the .zip, extract it, connect the phone, and run the installer. From there, simply follow the step-by-step instructions in the installer. It should be noted that the installer is in .bat format, so for now it’s for Windows only.

There are a couple of drawbacks, however. You must be on the stock kernel that comes with Gingervolt or on mtmichaelson’s own kernel. Additionally, some of the applications aren’t too compatible with being deodexed, and may not work. As, make a backup before doing anything, just in case something goes wrong.

You can find the full instructions, download links, and further explanation in the original thread

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
