If you are familiar with Xiaomi, you might have heard that they are not the most compliant when it comes to the General Public License that makes the core of Android open to us. The terms of the GPLv2 state that since the Android kernel is based on the Linux kernel, which is licensed under GPL,v2 Android has to be open-source for everyone to study or modify, and those that modify the Android kernel have to make their sources immediately available for...
Simple Programming Tutorial to Creating Basic Applications
To most people, programming is not something that can be done in just a few minutes. It requires time, patience and above all really good programming skills. But according to XDA member rkrishnan2012, it shouldn’t be that hard to create applications. You only need some time to read his full tutorial, which explains all instructions and steps needed to program. The first tutorial, which contains information needed for basic programming skills using Visual Studio 2010 Express Edition C#, is now posted. The creator of the tutorial finds it so easy, that he thinks even a 13 year old can understand it and learn the programming basics.
All steps that need to be performed refer to an image, which shows you exactly what to do. There are more tutorials to come.

I posted pics for EVERY STEP along he way so you can walk through it. Simply open the zip and there are three directories
- IMAGES – has all the images to the tutorial
- TUTE – a tute in .doc format
- SOURCE – whatever program we made that day, I posted a source code area to post up source for it.
-Enjoy and I hope people learn a few things from it (even though it is quite basic)
The tutorial also contains code previews, which makes everything a lot easier.
A short preview of the tutorial:
Now, navigate to the FILE menu on top and click on NEW>PROJECT. This will open up the new project dialog box like shown.
Now, you need to navigate the Visual C# section on the left and then click on the “Windows Forms Application” as the project type and we will today be making a simple ‘hello world button’ except unlike the boring old fashioned hello world projects which tutorials typically take you through, we will be redefining the world of hello world (no pun intended).
Next, you need to choose a name for the project and a location to store the project files, like so:
As you can see, everything is explained very clearly.
Update: The second part of the tutorial is now available; it will dive deeper into more advanced codes.
So, do you want to give it a shot? Check out the tutorial thread to find the download package!

After teasing products on its forums for a few days, Xiaomi held the anniversary event earlier today and staying true to the...
A few months ago, we came up with the idea of presenting the history of flagship devices released by some of the major Android OEMs. In this, we've had the pleasure of bringing you the stories of Sony (Ericsson) and Samsung. Now, it's time for our third and final installment. This is a very special episode, as the OEM I will talk about was heavily connected to Android and the beginnings of XDA as a whole. Yes, I'm talking about HTC, the...
