While browsing our forum, you will undoubtedly find more than a few enticing ROMs available to download. Original or not, it would take eternity and a day to test them all. Luckily there are some solutions to make the process seamless. One of them, MultiROM, gives users a chance to try a few ROMs at the same time–all without flashing and wiping with each installation.
This project has been ported to several devices including the LG G2 and Sony Xperia Z. It was originally made by XDA Recognized Developer Tassadar, and now has found its way to another popular . . . READ ON »

You may recall that a few weeks ago, we opened up the XDA-2015 forum themes to intrepid users willing to help us beta test the new look and experience the newer and more streamlined interface firsthand. Then just under one week ago, we officially launched the two new XDA 2015 forum themes for all. Now, we are pleased to launch the next generation of the XDA-Developers News Portal.
As you may have noticed, the new forum templates and the XDA Portal 3.0 share quite a bit in terms of visual style. Rather than having a somewhat disjoint experience between the forums and Portal, we wanted to . . . READ ON »

The media has gone batty again over Apple “revolutionizing” smartphones. However, as a lot of Android fans will tell you, there is nothing revolutionary in the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. So during Apple phone releases, it’s usually best to not read your Facebook or Google+ notifications, as the endless droning from both sides with drive you mad. The legendary Sun Tzu is quoted as saying “to know your enemy, you must become your enemy.” Which is a fancy way of saying “do knock it until you try it.”

Sony will be offering its users the possibility to use AOSP ROMs as an alternative to the currently offered, skinned firmware. This is the result of agreement made with FXP group associated with both XDA and the CyanogenMod team, which took place a few years ago. One of the leaders of the project, XDA Senior Recognized Developer jerpelea, is heading this operation and was hired by Sony to lead the AOSP program.
AOSP support isn’t something new to Sony. Currently this Japanese OEM supports five devices—mainly flagship devices, but also the Xperia L, which is a popular mid-range device. . . . READ ON »

Project Ara is a very exciting topic–both for hardware and software enthusiasts. The modular smartphone idea looks like a mission impossible, but Google is determined to make it a reality pretty soon. Paul Eremenko from Project Ara team has shed some lights on the project’s status and we now know that Ara will have a modified version of Android L on board.
It was pretty easy to predict that Google would select Android as the operating system for Ara. The more interesting part is that users will be able to replace some elements of the device without powering off the phone (i.e.. . . READ ON »

I don’t have a custom theme on my Android phone, and the reason for this is because I am too busy picky (and perhaps lazy) to go through the countless fantastic custom themes that have been created and made available here on XDA and in the Play Store. And I’m sure that many folks here are in the same situation. Because despite the vast selection of themes, we all find ourselves a little bit too picky about something specific –perhaps it’s the icons, the accent colors, or the switches. And this is where Graphic Porter comes in.

I think the last time anyone has ever used a physical torch to find their earphones, keys, or contact lens case was eons ago–before phones with LED flashes were invented. Now if we have to navigate or find something in the dark, we just whip out our phones, turn on their LEDs and sweep the floor with their gloriously powerful light. Of course, we all know that torches are actually better at being torches than our phone’s measly LEDs, but one can dream right?

Unveiled in June this year, the Nokia X2 is the Finnish company’s second crack at an Android-powered device. With a 4.3 inch IPS display, a dual core processor, 1GB of RAM, and a price tag under $200, the X2 is a device unique for its dual Windows-Android experience, with Nokia replacing any indication of Android OS with Nokia and Microsoft counterparts. Perhaps not for the wider mainstream market, the Nokia X2 is an interesting device that will definitely perk the interests of some folks. If you happen to be one of these people or have already bought one, you . . . READ ON »
