More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative. However, there are still a few OEMs (we're looking at you, Samsung) that have preferred to keep things a bit more traditional. Tell us which way you prefer and why.
ROM Customization for WM – FoddTweak
Well, we don’t talk about cooking as much as we probably should, so here goes a little something for all the WM chefs out there. XDA member arealityfarbetween just released an app to allow users for his roms to do tweaks of that are otherwise hard to accomplish. The app is written in Mortscript and basically affects registry settings and a few other things at this point. For instance, the app can help with the removal of certain icons in order to help with RAM saving, it can be configured to turn Location on and off, and much more. The app runs during customizations after a fresh install/hard reset, so your device will be up and running in no time with very little interaction from your part.
According to the dev, the app is still pretty basic in what it can offer. But if you know a bit of Mortscript and would like to help out by providing a few more tweaks to this great tool. So, if you are willing to help out, please drop by the thread.
Hi there chef’s! I’m not sure if any of you will find this useful but I’ll post it in case you do…
I designed this little mortscript application so that users of my rom can tweak a few settings to their needs and because all of the other tweak applications couldn’t be tweaked easily themselves without learning .NET or something similar.
If anyone wants to help work on it that’d be great because the feature set is still pretty bare. I’ve only tested it on my ROM but it should really work on any since it’s mostly registry tweaks that are performed.
You can find more information in the tool thread.

While there are frequent unexplained changes and pushes to Google's AOSP repositories, an interesting-looking new branch has been pushed out recently, called "master-soong". Taking a look at the changes made to the manifest repository (which is used to specify the repositories to be downloaded when building Android), it appears there are some new repositories making an appearance. Of note here are new prebuilt repositories for Go, and Ninja. Go is a programming language, created by Google, which compiles to produce...
There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...
