Android has offered Google Voice Search for many, many years now. Thanks to nearly constant backend updates, its capabilities are continually expanding. And if you’re anything like I am, you use every chance you have to impress your friends by saying, “OK Google…”
As powerful as Google Voice Search is, it’s not perfect. For example, while it has the ability to perform quite a few tasks such as opening your Camera app, the list of supported commands are controlled entirely by Google. Moreover, if you’re attempting touchless operation, you must first engage Voice Search functionality by saying “OK Google,” and then say your command of choice. N. . . READ ON »

We’ve talked about the Oppo Find 7a quite a bit here on the XDA Portal ever since its unveiling, back in March of this year. In the time since, the Find 7a has received official TWRP support, a feature-packed official OTA, and even CyanogenMod 11S from the OnePlus One. During this time, we’ve also stripped the device down to its hardware innards and given it a quick review.
Now, we’re about to enter the next phase in Find 7a development, thanks to the first source-built custom ROM for the device. This comes in the form of official OmniROM alpha builds, which will eventually transition into nightlies once the device is ready. These builds come from none other than XDA Senior Recog. . .

OmniROM is one of the hottest new custom ROMs. It comes from developers including XDA Senior Recognized Developers Chainfire, XpLoDWilD, pulser_g2, and is definitely something that shouldn’t be missed. During the past few months, the OmniROM team added a few of very interesting features like OpenDelta and Multi-Window, which is still described as a work-in-progress. Now, users who have updated to the most recent nightlywill notice a “mysterious” OmniSwitch entry in their application drawers.

Over the years, we’ve seen a few attempts at multi-window on the Android platform, with varying levels of success. We first saw Cornerstone a few years back, and it was even slated to be integrated into the popular CyanogenMod ROM, but that didn’t go so well. We then saw Samsung’s proprietary implementation, but this only worked with a few whitelisted applications. Although rooted users could modify that whitelist, this wasn’t an ideal solution for people who wanted a truly multi-purpose multi-window solution.
Paranoid Android then took a stab at this with Halo. But while that solution worked beautifully for the supported use-cases, it was a bit limited in terms of what things coul. . . READ ON »

Not too long ago, we announced the creation of a dedicated forum for large-scale, multi-device custom ROMs. Originally, this forum was home to development and discussion surrounding OmniROM, PAC ROM, and Paranoid Android.
Now, we’ve gone ahead and expanded the forum to include two other important multi-device ROMs: SlimRoms and AOKP. As is the case with the previously created entries in the Custom ROM Central forum, this is where general discussion pertaining to these ROMs belongs, as well as Q&A about the projects themselves, and feature development to be incorporated into the ROMs themselves.

The Motorola Xoom is rapidly approaching its third birthday. And given its age, you would be forgiven for thinking that it is readily approaching time for retirement. However, thanks to innovations such as the recently covered bigpart partition layout, the device still clings to life.
Now, the device has highly functional 4.4.2 KitKat-based OmniROM builds, courtesy of XDA Forum Member Schischu, along with some help from quite a few other developers mentioned in the thread’s OP. Currently, there are only a few very minor issues with selecting alternate keyboards and audio dock volume controls. However, these are relatively minor and don’t hinder every day usage too greatly.
