Samsung Galaxy Ace Gets AOKP, ParanoidAndroid, CM10 Kang
Everyone enjoys a good mash-up every now and then. There are a variety of mash-ups out there, from music to pictures to videos. Pretty much everyone has a favorite mash up. One type of mash up we don’t see very often are ROM mash-ups. Unless you have a Samsung Galaxy Ace.
XDA Recognized Contributor nims11 has gone and combined some old favorites into a new flavor. Many can’t decide on whether to flash AOKP, ParanoidAndroid, or CyanogenMod. Well, nims11 solved that problem by kanging all three in one ROM.
Called PAC (Paranoid, AOKP, CM), the ROM brings the best of Jelly Bean all in one package. The PAC ROM was developed by Recognized Contributor szl.kiev for the Xperia Ray. Presumably, it has features from all three ROMs. In addition to posting the ROM, nims11 has also posted a FAQ with pictures to show users how to use it. As per the norm, the ROM has bugs but nothing overly major. The camcorder doesn’t work, no method of tethering works, and due to Qualcomm not releasing OpenMAX libraries, and HQ video playback probably won’t ever work.
Even so, this ROM could be a fun alternative to the usual offerings, and it gives users the chance to see what it would be like if all these ROMs were merged together. If you want to check it out, follow the link to the PAC thread.

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.
