Although they were originally designed to secure our mobile devices and prevent inadvertent and accidental device usage, lock screens have evolved into so much more. They not only serve a functional purpose in protecting our devices, but they also show us information with lock screen widgets and even serve as a bit of eye candy. However, that last bit is hampered a little by having one static lock screen theme.
Luckily for OnePlus One users, there’s now an incredibly easy way to get just a little bit more out of your lock screen’s aesthetics. This comes courtesy of a modification by XDA Recognized Themer rush25 that dynamically changes your lock screen to match the selected theme. There are ve. . . READ ON »

The lock screen of the OnePlus One is quite the pleasant thing to look at. It’s minimalistic and simple, yet different from what we’ve all perhaps gotten used to over the years. But by default, the customization options are quite limited, particularly in regards to the solid-colored panel that takes up the bottom half of the screen. Yes, you can say that a third party lock screen will fix this little issue, but if you’re looking for some more freedom with the original lock screen, you may want to check out Recognized Developer NunHugger’s mod.
NunHugger’s mod essentially allows you change the color of the OnePlus One lock screen panel or replace it with an image or a gradient. The mod comes in a variety of . . . READ ON »

Android is a beautiful platform, full of surprising and interesting ideas. Without a doubt, one of the coolest projects that has been introduced to the community in recent memory is MultiROM by XDA Recognized Developer Tassadar. This project allows you to boot many various ROMs and even operating systems from the SD Card of your device.
Not so long ago, MultiROM was ported over to the Moto G and its wallet-friendly brother, the Moto E. Those two devices aren’t the only non-Nexus phones that have gotten a working port. There are two new members in the MultiROM family, the OnePlus One and the Sony Xperia Z.

Oppo’s spunky offspring company OnePlus announced their first smartphone, the One, to much fanfare. It ships with a special version of CyanogenMod installed.
