It’s almost a given that everyone reading this has already seen a thread with the word AROMA in the title.

Flash Different Text Fonts Through AROMA with FontFly

roboto_font

One of the simplest ways of giving your Android interface a new and refreshed look is to change the default font. Achieving this is easy, as all that’s required is switching the .ttf files in one of the system directories, hence the abundance of third-party apps in the Play Store requiring root access. And if you’re a user of one of the few ROMs that can change fonts for you, well, all the better!

But for those who are not running ROMs with this function, or who are aware of the possibilities of bootloops and other unpleasant issues from using a third-party app, you may want to check out XDA Senior Member xminirom’s FontFly AROMA package. FontFly is essentially an AROMA mod pack that houses a myriad different fon. . . READ ON »

Comprehensive Guide to AROMA Installer

558560_548526988536044_904807097_n

Ever since XDA Recognized Developer amarullz created the AROMA installer, we’ve seen it used in quite a variety of ways. One of the first proofs of concept was the constantly evolving AROMA File Manager by amarullz himself. We’ve also seen it used for ROM and kernel customization, toolkits, debloating utilities, and much more.

The widespread use of AROMA installer should come as no surprise. After all, the installer is both versatile and user friendly. So naturally, quite a few developers have adopted it into their own development work, making it their delivery method of choice.

Primer on Using AROMA Installer with Your Development Work

logo

By now, you should all be familiar with AROMA Installer by XDA Recognized Developer amarullz. As a brief primer for the uninitiated, AROMA installer is a powerful GUI that is accessible via most modern aftermarket recoveries such as TWRP and CWM.

The main purpose of AROMA Installer is to allow you to customize the installation of whatever tweaks, ROMs, kernels, and mods you may be installing. A popular example of this in practice is the popular ElementalX kernel for a range of devices by Recognized Developer flar2. Rather than simply installing when selected in your custom recovery of choice, this kernel gives users a host of options including max clock speed, GPU overclocking, thermal settings, governor . . .

Custom Kernel for the HTC One Brings a Touch of Normality to its Button Layout

HTC One

Despite being an almost sickeningly desirable, ultra-specced, and feature laden beast of a device—so desirable in fact that this self confessed Samsung fanboy considered making it his next device—the HTC One isn’t without it’s little quirks. These are quirks that may just be enough to sway somebody from choosing it over a competitor. One of these is the somewhat baffling decision by HTC to offer only two capacitive buttons and opt for an on screen software menu button in the absence of the commonly seen, yet commonly missing, Android action bar overflow. This can result in an unfortunate amount of screen space being wasted in certain applications.

That however, is now avoi. . . READ ON »

Terminal Emulator Added to AROMA File Manager

02

By now we all know what AROMA Installer is and just how useful it has become for ROM developers and end users alike. The recovery-based installation environment has proven to be very popular across all XDA device forums, and is used to customize the installation of ROMS, kernels, and various other mods.

XDA Recognized Developer amarullz, the developer of these two projects, has now gone one step further and has inte. . . READ ON »
