Simple Guide Shows You How to Cherry Pick Useful Features Directly from Gerrit

Building ROMs from source is becoming increasingly popular. While most who decide to build their own ROM do so to learn something new, some share their builds with community. However, ROMs are not always created from scratch. Some features are taken from open source projects that have their code publicly available on a Git.

Big projects with many contributors use the web-based software review tool Gerrit. Using Gerrit is a bit different than Git, and we covered a great guide some time ago. This tool can also be used to cherry-pick single commits, and a simple guide by XDA Senior Member jabza will show newcomers how to do this.

Jabza’s guide shows new developers how to use terminal to get one commit and resolve errors afterwards. Jabza uses ParanoidAndroid’s Halo as an example, but his instructions can be applied to any other open source project. With just few steps, you will be able to add some useful features to your ROM.

If you’re a new developer and you want to learn how to cherry pick useful features from other projects, make your way to the guide thread and give it a shot.

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
