oneplusone1Seemingly every day, there are a bunch of new devices being released. Some are budget devices and some are flagship devices. Naturally, there are budget conscious enthusiasts who would like to have both. Recently, a device has made a big splash in the tech industry, and is called by some as the Nexus killer. Then again, what’s not being (perhaps inaccurately) called a Nexus killer these days? This device is the first offering from OnePlus. Let dive in and see if we have a Nexus killer or not.

Before we start this review, please note that some people are having some issues with the service of the company. That being said, this review is of the device hardware and software and our experience with it. READ ON »

cyanogenmod xperia theme

In addition the obvious proficiency with graphics, creating a good Android theme requires certain knowledge about exactly one must do. Even the default theme engine used many ROMs requires theme files to have a compatible structure, otherwise your newly created themes will not work or will be incomplete.

Sony devices have a quite unique UI, which many people fancy. Unfortunately, like most of stock ROMs, it’s bloated and full of commercial content. Because of this, quite a few XDA folks decide to venture over to AOSP-derived ROMs in their many flavors. If you ever wondered how to make an AOSP ROM to look like an Xperia device, XDA Senior Member gamzekal has the answer to this question. Gamzekal wrote a guide about porting Xperia Themes to CyanogenMod 11. The whole trick is to use Ambor Theme Engine by XDA Senior Member Ambor and change a few files. The guide explains which files should be changed and what code should be replaced in order to get a theme working on CM.

You’ll need a few minutes of free time and the themer’s best friend, APKTool. To learn how to theme your CM ROM to look like an Xperia ROM, visit the Xperia to CM Theme guide thread to get started.

There was a time several years ago, when CyanogenMod was the only large-scale, source-built custom ROM that was officially available for large number of devices. Nowadays, there are quite a few high quality offerings to choose from, each with their particular forte or claim to fame. But even with the abundant diversity of choices available, many users still choose CyanogenMod as their default ROM.

XDA Forum Member SlurmsMcKenzie recently created a fantastic set of boot animations to pay tribute to CyanogenMod and Cyanogen Inc using the latter’s latest corporate logo. There are nine boot animations available in total, and most are available in both HDPI and XHDPI flavors. They all feature Cyanogen Inc’s logo in some shape or form, some include Cyanogen text, and some offer pleasing wallpaper images behind the main animation.

If you’re a diehard Cyanogen fan, you can get your boot animation fix by visiting the original thread.

Update: Those looking for stylish, Cyanogen-themed animations may also want to take a look at this collection created by Recognized Themer Mazer.one. Thanks, herna, for the tip.

Many in the XDA community are undoubtedly awaiting the upcoming full-scale release of the OnePlus One (OPO). This device intends to set itself apart from the sea of other smartphone options by not only offering flagship-level specifications at a bargain basement price, but also by aiming to provide a unique software experience through collaboration with Cyanogen Inc.

Those who’ve been following the device are likely aware that the GPL-mandated kernel source code for the device was just released four days ago. For the unaware, this enables aftermarket kernel and ROM developers to create source-built development work without having to hobble together pieces intended for other hardware. As such, this is generally the gate-keeping step before true, source-built development begins for a device. However, even before the GPL-required source code was officially released, we saw quite a bit of development activity for the OPO, largely due to its (many) similarities to the previously released Oppo Find 7a.

While Linux kernel source release is quite important and a great tool for aftermarket developers, this isn’t really cause for celebration. That’s because every shipping device that uses the Linux kernel must make this code available by virtue of the GPLv2 license. However, what is a big deal is when an OEM releases a full device tree in order to assist aftermarket developers in their journey. This has happened a few times in the past, namely by Sony on certain devices, but this is by far the except and not the rule. Now just about one hour ago, the CyanogenMod team released the full device tree for the OnePlus One. And if that doesn’t live up to the device’s codename (bacon), I don’t know what does.

If you’re a third-party developer looking to start building for the OnePlus One, head over to the device tree (and kernel source) to get started. Then, be sure to head over to our OnePlus One to share all of your newly created development work.
